Making the Home in Homebaked – be our first tenant!

It was always our intention since the early days of Homebaked to build a flat above the Bakery, the first home in Homebaked. Having people live on our high street, alongside cafes and bakeries and whatever happens here next is central to our vision of what a high-street is – a place where people live and work. Great homes, food, company and nice things.

In January 2018 our flat will be finished. What we’ve built is a shared living space for people between the age of 18 and 35, 4 in total, and a secure and affordable tenure. It’s for people who are from or work in North Liverpool.

It’s a newly refurbished and furnished apartment. There are 4 double bedrooms and these shared rooms:

– kitchen/diner
– living room
– utility room/store
– 2 bath/shower rooms
– snug/study

The flat was refurbished with the support of our trainees – Bradley, Leanne, and David. It’s a modern flat – bright and spacious. They helped to imagine what a young person might need who lives there.

Our neighbourhood is a great place to live. You’re short (as in 2 minutes) walk away from a bus into town and Anfield Stadium, a 5-minute walk from Stanley Park, and you’re even closer than that to the best pie you’ve ever eaten (amongst many other things) in Homebaked cafe.

And you can also help to imagine what else you might need from your high-street and should you wish, be actively involved in making it a reality for you and your neighbours.
