Full description

Tenure: Leasehold

BRIEF DESCRIPTION Located along City Road, the property could not be better placed for an excellent range of amenities, not only Chester city high street between a 5 to 10 minute walk, but the popular night spots of The Old Harkers Arms and Artichoke which form part of the rejuvenation along the Shropshire Union Canal. The Waitrose supermarket also lies a short walk along the canal towpath and Chester Railway Station is within a 5 minute walk and provides ease of commute to Liverpool, Manchester and also London. Being a duplex apartment, the property's accommodation falls over two levels, the second and third floors of the building, which are in fact the top two floors. It should be noted that this particular apartment has the added benefit of accommodation which stretches over the communal stair well making the guest bedroom on the third floor that extra bit bigger than others. Approached from street level through communal key coded doors there is stair and lift access to the second floor where there is a private entrance door into the hallway of the property. On the ground level of this apartment is an entrance hall with a spindled staircase which provides access to the first floor, with a built-in under stairs storage cupboard and cloakroom/WC which also benefits from plumbing for a washing machine. There is open plan style living on this level with a living/dining room which benefits from a Juliet balcony to the front aspect and an opening through to the kitchen which is fitted with a range of light oak laminate fronted Shaker style units. On the first floor, there are two good-sized bedrooms, both benefiting from Juliet balconies to the front, and the master bedroom having an en-suite shower room with a three piece white suite. Across the hallway is a bathroom featuring a three piece suite, and completing the accommodation is a further room, currently being used as a study by our clients, which benefits from a built-in storage cupboard housing the hot water cylinder, and this could easily be used as a small media room or nursery perhaps. There is UPVC double glazing installed and electric wall heaters. The property has the benefit of one allocated parking space and this is within the basement level of the complex and is secure by way of an electric key fob operated roller door.
