Tenure: Freehold

A beautifully refurbished Grade II listed detached house in the heart of the city with enclosed parking for two cars and a walled courtyard garden.


30 King Street is situated in a charming cobbled street, within the Roman walls in the heart of the historic city of Chester. All the amenities that the city has to offer including excellent shops and fine dining are within walking distance.

A key attraction of Chester is the quality of education and this particular location is attractive to those with children schooled at King's and Queen's both of which are easily accessible from King Street.

The Cathedral City of Chester is one of the north-west's leading retail and commercial centres and offers an extensive range of shops, restaurants and cultural activities. Chester has direct access to the motorway network, linking to Manchester, Liverpool and their airports and to the North Wales coast. There is a direct and regular rail service to London Euston (about 2 hours).

Chester is the home of one of the oldest racecourses in the country and it provides an extensive programme of horse racing and other events including polo. Grosvenor Park, during the summer months, hosts a programme of outdoor theatre.


30 King Street is a charming detached house (a rarity within the city walls) in a popular conservation area within the heart of the city. The property dates from about 1700 and the current owners have carried out a comprehensive scheme of refurbishment to include rewiring, plumbing, new kitchen and bathrooms. The house is beautifully presented and tastefully decorated throughout, successfully blending light contemporary colours with the period features.

The front door opens into a spacious reception hall. The accommodation is arranged either side of the hallway and there is a cloakroom, stairs to the first floor, access to the dining room and kitchen and a door to the rear courtyard garden.

Double doors open into the dining room (currently used as a sitting room). This is a very pleasant room with exposed beams, a window looking out to King Street, built-in shelves and doors through to the sitting room. The sitting room again has a series of exposed beams and a very attractive inglenook which has a working chimney and could be fitted with a multi-fuel burner. There are windows to the front and rear of the room and it is a lovely space for entertaining.

On the opposite side of the hallway large glass double doors open into a garden room. This is a wonderfully light space with a high vaulted ceiling, two velux windows and a patio door opening out to the rear courtyard.

The kitchen has a range of wall and floor units and drawers and integrated appliances include oven, hob, extractor fan and dishwasher.

First Floor
On the first floor is a lovely master bedroom with spacious en suite shower room. There are a further two bedrooms (bedroom 3 currently used as an office). There is also a family bathroom with bath and shower.

To the rear of the property is a delightful courtyard with barbecue and seating areas. The courtyard has double wooden gates providing off-street parking, accessed directly off Canning Street via Water Tower Street
