BRIEF DESCRIPTION Upton by Chester is a village lying to the north of Chester which is extremely popular with families as it offers revered local schooling for primary and secondary education as well as falling close to both the independent Kings & Queens schools. The residence is situated on a slightly elevated plot positioned opposite to the entrance of the Upton Golf Club and can be approached via a pedestrian gated pathway and vehicular access is available via a private concrete set driveway which provides off-road parking for numerous vehicles and leads to an attached garage with an adjoining carport. The driveway passes mature lawned gardens to the front, being beautifully landscaped with a collection of mature shrubbery to the borders and there is a pathway which leads around the perimeter of the property. The rear garden is well enclosed via timber fencing and is laid predominantly to lawn with a collection of shrubbery to the borders. The property offers versatility and a degree of scope for improvement and expansion (subject to any necessary planning permission being obtained). Our clients have been in residence for a number of years, so although the property itself appears dated cosmetically, it is clear that the property has been well maintained over the years and offers much charm throughout. To the front, one is greeted by a timber glazed porch which provides access through to the reception hall featuring a decorative staircase providing access to the first floor accommodation with a useful under stairs storage cupboard. There are three reception rooms, the living room itself offers a light and airy feel and features a central carpet with part wood block parquet surround; double doors linking through to the dining room which provides access to a kitchen off.

Completing the living accommodation is a separate WC off the landing area. The property features a combination of glazing with some UPVC double glazed units having been installed in recent times. The property is warmed via gas fired central heating (not tested by agent).
