Property Description

Full description

Tenure: Freehold

BRIEF DESCRIPTION This pre-war 1930s semi-detached home is traditional in nature as it does not benefit from extensions but indeed does offer potential for such, subject to any necessary planning and building consents. The home offers two reception rooms to the ground floor and a kitchen, all accessed off a reception hall which has period woodblock flooring, a picture rail, a spindled staircase off to the first floor accommodation and an original leaded light front door with accompanying side light windows, which all provide an excellent precursor to what lies in store in the home. With original flooring being evident in both reception rooms, the sitting lies to the front with a period cast iron open fireplace and provides a charming feel to this room aided by a UPVC double glazed curved bay window. To the rear is a dining room featuring a sliding patio door which welcomes in the rear garden to the home. On the first floor, there is a spindled balustrade to the landing area which has loft access and there are three bedrooms, two doubles and a single, with the single being used as a music room by our clients. The bathroom features a two piece suite with a curved bath with mixer shower over and an airing cupboard housing the 'Worcester' gas condensing boiler, and there is a separate WC. In recent years our clients have installed UPVC double glazing and there is gas central heating. Externally, off-road parking is provided to the front via a gated private driveway with an accompanying lawned garden with herbaceous borders and the driveway leads to an attached garage/lean-to with tandem access leading through to the rear garden. The rear garden is an attractive feature of the home with a collection of seating areas dotted around the garden, all strategically placed to capture the sun as it moves around, and a lawned area, all well enclosed and offering a good degree of privacy. 

LOCATION The area is well served with local amenities within walking distance in Vicars Cross and nearby Boughton and is approximately 5-10 minutes travelling distance of Chester city centre. There is good nursery and primary education within Vicars Cross itself and the property also lies within the catchment area for Christleton High School. The property has particularly good accessibility to the M53/M56 motorway networks as well as the A55 southerly by pass with its links to the Chester Business Park.
