A beautiful apartment with a high specification of appointment throughout, forms part of the stunning conversion of Backford Hall, a wonderful Grade II listed mid 19th Century residence, standing proud within the desired and highly sought after Backford Park development. A conversion by Jones Homes in recent times, it has created an exclusive collection of 10 individual apartments within the Hall itself. As fine an example of a 'ready to move into' opportunity provided with NO ONWARD CHAIN, with two double bedrooms, both enjoying en-suite facilities, and with the benefit of three allocated parking spaces.

The pièce de résistance of the property is the open plan living/dining room which extends through to the kitchen, with a modern and attractive range of units and quality integrated appliances. The standard of appointment and the lifestyle that is offered can only be appreciated by internal viewing and it is something we recommend very highly.

A regular railway service runs from nearby Little Sutton and Hooton to Liverpool City Centre. The property lies within easy traveling distance of the extensive array of amenities that Cheshire Oaks has to offer, as well as being convenient for Chester, being just a short drive away from the Chester Zoo (Upton) park and ride and Chester Zoo itself.
