An iconic former Grosvenor Estate house set in an exceptionally large plot on the edge of the city.
2 Wrexham Road is situated in a large plot, on the edge of Chester city centre. All the amenities that the city has to offer including excellent shops and fine dining are within walking distance.
A key attraction of Chester is the quality of education and this particular location is attractive to those with children schooled at King's and Queen's, both of which are equidistant from the property.
The Cathedral City of Chester is one of the north west's leading retail and commercial centres and offers an extensive range of shops, restaurants and cultural activities.
Chester has direct access to the motorway network, linking to Manchester, Liverpool and their airports and to the North Wales coast. There is a direct and regular rail service to London Euston (about 2 hours).
Chester is the home of one of the oldest racecourses in the country and it provides an extensive programme of horse racing and other events including polo. Grosvenor Park, during the summer months, hosts a programme of outdoor theatre.
2 Wrexham Road is a substantial semi-detached Edwardian house. Being offered to the market for only the third time since its construction in 1901, this is a fantastic opportunity for a buyer to acquire an iconic, former Grosvenor Estate property.
The accommodation is arranged over two floors and the rooms are well-proportioned with high ceilings and many of the original period features have been preserved. The property benefits from an excellent open plan family/kitchen which is ideally suited to modern family life. The principal rooms are arranged around an attractive reception hall with a handsome oak staircase leading up to the first floor.
The elegant formal drawing room is very light with two large sash windows and an attractive cast iron fireplace. To the other side of the hallway is a media room which has three large sash windows, open fireplace with feature mantelpiece and fitted units. The kitchen/family room provides superb open-plan living space and effortlessly melds practical family space with stylish sophistication. The bespoke kitchen has an extensive range of units, chef's island with breakfast bar, 5-oven Aga and Belfast sink.
Beyond the kitchen is a seating area and to the right of this a beautiful wood framed conservatory which overlooks the garden and provides a stylish dining room. French doors lead out to the garden from the dining area extending the entertaining space during the summer months.
The home office is accessed from the conservatory and has a range of shelves, cupboards and fitted desk. Off the family area is a utility room and a separate boot room with a mezzanine level, this space could have a variety of uses. At one end of the reception hall is a WC and a cloakroom.
On the first floor is a master bedroom with en suite, three guest bedrooms and a family bathroom. Stairs from the first floor landing lead up to an attic room which is currently used for storage and occasional guest space but could be adapted to provide a fifth bedroom.
The property is set well back from Wrexham Road approached via a tarmac driveway with solid wood gates leading through to the rear garden and an additional, large driveway. Both areas provide extensive parking and at the rear there is an English Heritage New Forest oak garage, carport and log store.
The garden is a real feature of the property bounded by woodland and with an extensive lawn and patio areas, it is something of a rarity so close to the city centre to have so much outside space. There is also a thatched gazebo.
