A superb riverside house enjoying spectacular south westerly views


Beau Rivage occupies an outstanding position on the banks of the River Dee commanding one of the finest views in Chester. It overlooks The Meadows and takes full advantage of its site which offers tranquillity, privacy, direct access to the river, and sweeping views of the River Dee. Opportunities for walking, boating and picnicking are immediately to hand and Chester city centre, with its premium retail, restaurant and cultural destinations is only a short distance away.

Chester is served by excellent state and private day schools including King's and Queen's, Abbeygate College, and the Firs. Chester is home to the oldest Race Course in the country, which provides an extensive programme of horse racing and other events including polo. There is a thriving restaurant and cafe culture in the city and many other leisure amenities, including first class golfing, tennis and other recreational sports.


Beau Rivage is an imposing three storey detached property built to an excellent standard by its current owner.

It was built in recent years and the current owner confirms that great care was taken to ensure strong foundations. Covered in PermaRock apparently makes it a strong and well insulated property.

The house offers a wonderful feeling of space and light, with large bright rooms, most of which face the river with uninterrupted views. The orientation of the house and garden is excellent, with the riverside elevation and gardens being exposed to the sun for much of the day and into the evening. Heating is provided by an under floor system and air circulating ventilation, providing a uniform and economic atmosphere.

The property is accessed via sliding electric gates to a bonded gravel drive with access to a double garage and parking area.

The front door opens to an impressive and spacious entrance hall with galleried atrium above with a viewing area in the style of a ship bridge and library shelving. Adjoining the hall on one side is a study/bedroom and a door to an integral garage on the other.

Stairs from the entrance hall lead down to the lower levels. On the middle floor is a master suite, two further double bedrooms, a shower room, a sauna and a bathroom with a Jacuzzi and steam shower. Bedrooms 1 & 2 both have fitted wardrobes, Juliette balconies and impressive views of the river. There is also a cinema room and useful storage on this floor.

On the lower ground floor is a large kitchen/breakfast room with a good range of storage units, eye level ovens and other integrated appliances, including a Quooker hot tap, an American style double fridge/freezer, Neff twin oven and electric hob and a fitted dishwasher. A breakfast bar offers a convenient place for casual dining. The dining room and drawing rooms are divided by sliding pocket doors which when open make for a wonderful entertaining space. There is also a well equipped utility room and door to the garden.

French doors from the dining and sitting room open to an attractive landscaped garden which has large flagged terraced areas, stunning water features, grassed areas and features including Bali lamps and an original Balinese gazebo. The gazebo provides a wonderful seating area close to the water's edge and storage is provided in an adjacent shed. There is also a greenhouse.

The property also benefits from fishing and mooring opportunities.

Beau Rivage's much sought after position and recent build makes for a rare opportunity to acquire a modern and very attractive property on the banks of Chester's beautiful River Dee.
