Four areas around Chester for families seeking property with more space
There’s so much that Chester has to offer for families; its Tudor black-and-white, half-timbered buildings, a new Storyhouse arts complex, a world-renowned zoo and the beautiful River Dee that runs through the edge of the city. For families who still want to take advantage of everything that this historic city has to offer, but need a little more space, we’ve got four places to recommend that are always popular for families:
The small village of Boughton is located above the steep banks of the River Dee which provides this neighbourhood with impressive views over the river. There is a medical centre, pubs, local shops and a well-regarded primary and secondary school, making the village a popular choice for young families. According to RightMove, semi-detached properties sold for an average price of £255,164 in 2018, while detached properties fetched £299,471.
There are some beautiful Victorian dwellings on the market in Boughton, like this property in Tarvin Road
Hoole is Chester’s secret gem, known as the ‘Notting Hill of Chester’ with its wide range of independent shops, bars, restaurants and boutiques. Just a few minutes walk from the centre of Chester, Hoole is probably the best commuter village in Cheshire – being a 3-minute drive from the A51 and M53. Semi-detached properties in Hoole sold for an average price of £277,615 in 2018.
Take a look at this extended 4-bedroom property in this extremely popular residential location.
Upton is located on the outskirts of Chester and offers all the benefits of country life, but with Chester right on your doorstep.
The properties in this area tend to be predominantly semi-detached and detached houses in a wide variety of styles and sizes, like this unique 1950s 3-bedroom semi-detached house, with a superb Alan Titchmarsh designed garden within walking distance of a highly regarded primary school.

For those looking for the idyllic quintessential Cheshire village, you can’t beat Christleton. It won the Best Kept Village Award in 2011 and it’s not difficult to see why. With a beautiful village green and pond, along with a good choice of pubs, Christleton has a range of activities from walking clubs, a WI, a sports centre and a travelling library to keep you right in the heart of village life.
We’re marketing this classic style of house within easy commuting distance to Chester city centre. This is particularly popular for families, being within walking distance of Waverton Primary School, and within the catchment area of Christleton High School.
