Property Description

Full description

OVERVIEW Lying within 15 minutes travelling distance of Chester city centre, this property could not be more conveniently placed offering excellent transport links to not only Chester city centre but also Tarporley and to the major road networks to Manchester. Castleton stands on an elevated plot and offers scope for property improvement, but in its current guise is a sizeable family-sized detached home. In total there are five bedrooms in addition to the four reception rooms offered, with the living and dining rooms benefiting from an open plan feel. To the front, the property is approached via a sloped tarmac driveway which bisects stone edged borders with shrubs and trees and with hedging offering a good degree of privacy. The driveway leads to an attached store/garage and also the side. The accommodation is accessed through an arched glazed doorway into an entrance porch with a separate door into the entrance hall, which has period tiled flooring and acts as the atrium of the home with all reception areas accessed from here. A staircase leads off to the first floor accommodation which provides in total five bedrooms, with the master bedroom enjoying an en-suite shower room and the guest bedroom from fitted storage and water facilities. Completing the accommodation on the first floor is the family bathroom fitted with a three piece suite with a roll top bath with ball and claw feet. On the ground floor, there are four reception rooms in total, a separate sitting room with a bay window to the front, an open exposed brick fireplace and a secret door into the under stairs storage cupboard. The principal reception area is the living room, with an open plan feel to the dining room, where there is a further open fireplace. A doorway links through to the morning room, at the rear of the home, which has red tiled flooring and links to the utility room which doubles up as a downstairs cloakroom/WC and where there is sliding door access into the attached garage/store. Completing the accommodation is a kitchen with a range of wood fronted units and granite work surfaces with a separate pantry cupboard off. Adjoining the property at the rear is an attached brick store in two compartments, one housing the gas fired central heating boiler. The property has a combination of sash and wooden glazing and there is oil fired central heating. Externally, the rear garden offers a blank canvas for those green fingered amongst us and offers a raised lawned section of garden with stone edged borders and a concrete pathway/seating area directly from the property itself. It must be noted that the rear garden does enjoy a good degree of privacy.
