A renovated former rectory in a stunning position on the River Dee.
Chester House is a substantial Grade II Listed house extending to over 5200 sqft. It offers excellent family accommodation arranged on three floors following a comprehensive scheme of renovation carried out by the current owners.
Outside the gardens offer direct river access with the owners' daily dog walk taking place on the Meadows opposite, and to the front of the house there is a garage, recently constructed parking with an electric charging point and an upper garden terrace above.
Overall it is a wonderful family home offering flexible living space, with a degree of separation when needed for guests or family members, and all the convenience of being within easy reach of all Chester has to offer.
The front door opens into a porch and a further door opens into the reception hall with a parquet floor and an elegant Georgian staircase leading to the first floor. It serves the main reception rooms being a spacious drawing room with a stone fireplace with an iron grate and French doors opening onto the verandah.
A dining room is also situated on the river side of the house and links to the exceptional family kitchen with a good range of storage units, an Aga, an island and dining area. The study, a utility room and WC complete the ground floor accommodation. All river facing rooms offer outstanding southerly views.
On the first floor is a principal bedroom suite with a dressing room/6th bedroom and an en suite bathroom and separate WC, two further bedrooms and a second bathroom.
Stairs lead down from the reception hall to the lower ground level with a storage room and workshop and two further bedrooms and two bathrooms on the river side. There is also a games room and gym with bi-fold doors opening into the garden.
Outside are two garden areas, on the riverside and above the parking at the front. Steps lead up to the front garden which is arranged in terraces and includes lawned areas and a kitchen garden with a fruit cage.
On the river side and bounded to two sides by high walls is a pretty terraced area with specimen plants, a dining terrace and water feature. This sits above barrel vaulted storage areas.
The lower terraces are separated from the river by a low stone wall, are mainly laid to lawn and continue to a verandah by the house.
