Brook Lane, Newton, Chester, CH2 2EU, £645,000
A SUBSTANTIAL four bedroom, two bathroom BESPOKE CONSTRUCTED 1960s detached house with a MUCH LARGER THAN AVERAGE GARDEN PLOT, considerable inherent potential and a BACKWATER YET CONVENIENT location some 1.5 miles north of the Chester city centre.
- Brief Description
Bespoke constructed by the well known Chester developer Henry Dodd for his own occupation, this distinctive and substantial property has the particular benefit of a highly regarded location within one of Chesters foremost suburbs; but at the same time occupying a backwater location off a private driveway which leads to an extensive garden plot, which originally incorporated a now overgrown hard tennis court, an area would now be suitable for a number of different uses because of its much larger than average area. The house itself also has considerable potential, with its classic 1960s design being ripe for enhancement with a scheme of contemporary modernisation. In addition to this, there is a double garage, a pebbled driveway, some useful brick built outbuildings, a gas fired central heating system linked to warm air as well as wet radiator outputs, single glazed windows, connections to all mains services and the following accommodation which is described in detail below.

The grounds to The Coach House are a particular feature, being much larger than average and approached via a private pillared and gated driveway from Brook Lane itself, which leads to an extensive Staffordshire pebbled parking area with hardstanding section, turning area, lawned front garden, boundary fencing and hedging, external lighting and access to the double garage and a series of useful outbuildings. A gated external pathway as well as various external doors from the main house itself lead to the rear garden, which is much larger than average, mature, has vast inherent future potential and is principally laid to a main lawned section with a series of very well stocked shrubbery borders containing numerous shrubs, plants, roses, evergreen and deciduous trees. There is also established fencing and boundary screen hedging, a small side lawned section, flagged pathways and extensive seating areas, external lighting, a rectilinear pond, external cold water tap, external power point and a former tennis court leading from the far end of the garden which retains its original fencing and also has access to an additional small section of land.
