Brief Description

This charming one bedroomed cottage oozes character and strikes the right balance between modern and characterful living. Over the years the property has been maintained exceptionally well and the standard of finish is immediately evident upon stepping inside.

Main Description

The property is set in the extremely popular area of Boughton and enjoys access to the River Dee, a very short walk away, as well as good amenities and is within a short walk of Chester itself.

Once inside one is immediately greeted by the character this property has to offer with a living room with beamed ceilings and a multi-fuel stove. This provides access to a dining room, which is a versatile space, again with a beamed ceiling and with access to the kitchen and stairs off to the first floor. The kitchen is of very high specification and features 'Corian' work surfaces and a range of very well engineered base, wall and drawer units, as well as a central island and an array of branded integrated appliances. Enjoying under floor heating this is certainly the heart of the home. A door off the kitchen provides access to the outdoor space.

On the first floor, there is a generous welcoming bedroom as well as the property's bathroom which features a roll top bath and separate shower.

The property is double glazed throughout and is warmed by a gas central heating boiler.

Externally, you will find an unexpected hidden gem of outside space which enjoys a good degree of privacy and seclusion coupled with being easy maintenance.

This property should be of huge interest to both first time buyers and investors alike and would make a perfect loveable cosy space set within an ideal location.
