A stunning example of 1960s residential architecture in over 1/2 acre of gardens in one of Chester's foremost locations
Curzon Park North is arguably the most desirable residential address in Chester. The area offers quality housing, a peaceful attractive setting and a strong local community.
The property is set back from a quiet leafy road and Chester city centre, with its premium retail, restaurant and cultural destinations is only a short and pleasant walk over Dingle Bridge.
The Cathedral city of 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 variety of other leisure amenities, including first-class golfing at Chester Golf Club and tennis and other recreational sports in nearby Westminster Park. Opportunities for walking, boating and
picnicking are immediately to hand.
Chester has direct access to the motorway network, linking to Manchester, Liverpool and their airports and to the North Wales coast. A direct and frequent rail service to London Euston takes about 2 hours.
11 Curzon Park North was designed by T.O.Pottinger & Partners and built in the late 1960s. Mentioned in Pevsner's Architectural Guide it is a fascinating example of contemporary architecture which has been carefully and sympathetically maintained by successive owners.
Its striking design contrasts with the traditional architecture of the neighbouring houses offering an individuality and status of its own.
In a prime position, set back from the quiet leafy road, it occupies a plot extending to 0.56 acres, the majority being south facing garden. The house offers well balanced accommodation over two floors with a garage block and workshop linked by a car port.
The front door opens into a reception hall, with a Westmorland slate floor, offering direct access to the reception rooms. Set in a curved recess is an elegant sweeping hardwood staircase with an atrium above providing abundant natural light. As the staircase rises to the first floor slits within the
wall create interesting views of the accommodation beyond.
On the right hand side of the hall is a study with fitted shelving, cupboards and a desk area. The drawing room enjoys a spectacular outlook over the gardens and is linked via sliding pocket doors to the dining room with similarly impressive garden views. The drawing room has an interesting Westmorland slate fireplace with a raised hearth with a Baxi grate.
The dining room has an attractive sprung African mahogany floor and a serving hatch from the kitchen.
The high specification Poggenpohl kitchen has an excellent range of fitted storage units and various integrated appliances. Beside the kitchen is a hall area with stable doors to the garden and to a sitting room or play room. The utility room doubles as a back hall and a door opens into the carport which is also a useful covered walkway to the workshop and garage.
On the first floor is a landing with a large walk in linen cupboard and a further storage cupboard. There are 4 bedrooms, one with an en suite shower room and a very smart recently updated family bathroom. The en suite to the master bedroom and the wet room each have under floor heating.
Planning consent has been granted for a single storey extension to eastern elevation to provide a large open plan kitchen/family room. Full details are available on request.
The house is set in beautifully maintained gardens and grounds with York stone terraces with more formal planting of shrubs and perennials, extensive lawns and impressive mature trees and hedging.
The garage block has power and water.
