Brookside Close sells for bargain £735,000

Post by THE BOSS on Wed Dec 17, 2008 6:51 pm

One of the most famous TV streets in Britain, Brookside Close, sold today for the knockdown price of £735,000 - a third of the original asking price.

Overgrown and in need of refurbishment, the 13 red-brick houses in Croxteth were sold to an unnamed Liverpool-based buyer as a single lot to an on a long lease.

The Close has been empty since 2003, when the Channel 4 soap ended its 21 year run.

The houses were bought in 2005 by unnamed developers, who refurbished all of them. But after the developers were placed in receivership they were forced to accept the low bid.
Brookside Close was originally bought by Mersey Television in 1982 as part of a scheme to cover the costs of the show and to provide a more realistic set than some of their rival soaps.
Six of the houses were on-screen as sets and the remaining seven were used to house the administration, post-production, canteen, make-up and technical facilities for cast and crew.

The bargin price tag included all the infamous homes on 'The Close,' from the plush suburb of West Derby.
