Property description



Linden Grove was originally built in 1852 in the "Italian style". The property still has many of the stunning period features from that time. A pillared portico leads into a light and airy hallway, with beautiful Minton-tiled flooring, and a gallery opening through to the first floor showing a spectacular stained glass skylight. There is a working woodburner situated in an "Arts and Crafts" fire surround and original built-in hall cupboard.

To the right of the front door is a dual aspect drawing room, with shuttered windows, panelling to the walls, and bespoke built-in bookcases. To the left of the front door is the dining room, with feature fireplace and fitted bookshelves. The utility room has a washing machine, tumble drier, and sink with oak surround and cupboards. The kitchen has a 3 oven gas-fired Aga, central island with large sink, built-in microwave oven, integral dishwasher, integral fridge and freezer, space for a breakfast table, and a wonderful full height window with views over the River Dee, The Boathouse, and towards Grosvenor Park. There is access both to the garden and to the extensive cellars from the kitchen. The sitting room has a large working fireplace, built-in bookshelves and cupboards, and dual aspect full height windows with views over the River Dee. At the end of the hallway is the guest cloakroom with more Minton tiling and stained glass windows.

The restored pitch pine, ebony and mahogany staircase leads up to the first floor with views over Grosvenor Park and the River through a triple stained-glass window. The Master Bedroom features dual aspect views over the garden and the river, an original fireplace, built-in cupboards, a lobby dressing room and en-suite bathroom with double basin, bath and WC. Bedroom 2, a sizeable double room, looks out from the front of the house, with built-in wardrobes and a corner desk, and an en-suite shower room with WC and washbasin. Bedroom 3 is a large, light and airy double bedroom with dual aspect windows to the front and side, built-in cupboard, original fireplace, and en-suite shower room with basin and WC. The study/Bedroom 5 has views over the balcony at the front of the house. Bedroom 4 has views overlooking the River Dee, with unique original narrow built in cupboard space. There is an additional "walk-in" wardrobe, making use of the wonderful feature tower at the rear of the property. The family bathroom, adjacent to Bedroom 4, has a bath with shower over, basin and WC.

Queen's Park is a quiet residential area in Chester. There are good local shops in nearby Handbridge, including a butcher, chemist, greengrocer and Post Office. There are numerous independent and state primary and secondary schools within walking distance, as well as higher educational facilities.

The semi-detached property is accessed via electric gates and has a large gravelled parking area at the front. There is a garden shed and log store, and newly built double garage with large room above (with water supply and electricity). The Victorian landscape gardener, Edward Kemp, designed the surrounding grounds: at the back of the house is a large paved terrace with stone balustrading, and steps down to an additional seating area, surrounded by lawn, all with views over the River. From here are further steps down to a small orchard, where there is also a gate with private access to the tow path. Behind the garage, and next to the terrace, are 6 raised vegetable beds.
