Eaton Road, Handbridge, Chester, CH4 7EN, £850,000

A SUBSTANTIALLY EXTENDED three storey early Victorian semi-detached house, currently utilised as a 14 LETTING BEDROOM HMO, with a HEALTHY RENTAL INCOME yield, along with a SUPERB OWNER'S FLAT and guest suite, LAWNED GARDEN, cellar, MULTIPLE PARKING spaces, and an extremely popular conservation area location within WALKING DISTANCE OF THE CHESTER CITY CENTRE.

  • BRIEF DESCRIPTION
    A prime example of a first class freehold investment to rival traditional interest bearing options, this period property has been carefully converted and its entry to the market represents the opportunity to acquire a larger than average HMO with an existing rental income stream. The conservation area location of the property is particularly well thought of, being within walking distance of the SSSI of the Chester Meadows, as well as various local facilities within Handbridge and the wider array of amenities within the nearby Roman city of Chester. Excellent connections to the wider north west communications network can be reached via mainline railway services from the Chester General Station, as well as junctions with the A55 and A483 expressways. The property also has the benefit of an extensive block paved driveway to the front and side, a useful cellar, a rear lawned garden, double glazed windows to the side and rear elevations, a fire alarm system, connections to all mains services, two combination boilers, a standard gas central heating boiler, and an Andrews gas fired high capacity hot water boiler; all of which combine to serve the central heating and hot water requirements of this large building. The accommodation of the property is described in more detail below.
