Tenure: Freehold

Chester House is one of the finest houses on Britannia Square and has been exceptionally maintained regardless of cost during the 10 years that the current owners have resided there. This detached, Grade II listed house dates back to 1820 and traditional character combines with contemporary living.

A path winds through the private south facing landscaped garden to the front door and paved terrace set under a beautiful wrought iron veranda with a glass roof.

Inside it presents a host of period features including working window shutters, high ceilings, decorative ceiling roses, cornice and door surround mouldings, panelled doors, sash windows, picture rails and deep skirting boards.

It offers extremely generous and very well presented contemporary family accommodation with all of the principal rooms being south facing creating light and airy living space. In addition to impeccable maintenance, the current owners have undertaken a number of improvements during their time there.

Of particular note is the superb open plan kitchen/dining/family room which has been refitted by the current owners to a very high standard. It includes a contemporary Geba fitted kitchen including a central island, Silestone worktops, integrated Neff fridge and
dishwasher, Rangemaster gas and electric oven with a six ring gas hob. The dining/family room area includes working window shutters, a cast iron fireplace with a slate hearth and living gas fire along with mood lighting. There are three further reception rooms and over two floors are 5 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms along with two useful lower ground floor rooms.

To the rear the house solid double gates open off Back Lane North to a secure paved courtyard with an open fronted double garage.
