OFFERING NO ONWARD CHAIN, 3 Clayton Court is a rare addition to the market being a fine Grade II listed Georgian residence which has been sympathetically improved over recent years to enhance many of the original features, whilst providing sizeable high quality contemporary features. There are two separate southerly-facing sun terraces with fine aspects as well as access to a secure gated courtyard where there is one allocated parking space and access to an integral single garage. The property benefits from five bedrooms, two offering en-suite facilities, and two separate reception rooms, as well as a stunning-sized dining kitchen with a beautifully appointed 'Harvey Jones' hand painted timber kitchen complete with 'Caesarstone' quartz work surfaces, integrated appliances, under floor heating and French doors providing access to a beautifully tiled courtyard complete with bi-folding shutters. The property also benefits from useful features including a good-sized cellar with utility space; downstairs cloakroom/WC; spacious first floor drawing room; guest bedroom featuring en-suite facilities; and an excellent-sized master bedroom which benefits from a fine southerly-facing view together with an en-suite shower room with a stunning river view. On the top floor, there are two further bedrooms, with the rear-facing bedroom (currently used as a study) with double doors onto a top floor sun terrace which offers arguably one of Chester city centre's most outstanding views. We could not recommend an internal viewing of this property more highly. 

LOCATION Clayton Court is situated on Duke Street within the City Walls, just on the outskirts of the hustle and bustle of the city centre yet only minutes away from the convenience and the historical features that Chester has to offer. The property is within eye shot of the Roman City Walls and benefits from fine views over the River Dee which is only a few minutes walk away. Chester also enjoys a two hour direct rail service to and from London as well as easy access to the major motorway network.
