A TASTEFULLY RENOVATED late Georgian Grade II Listed four bedroom, two bathroom detached cottage in a FAVOURED YET CONVENIENT LOCATION to the east of Chester.
Situated on the periphery of the ancient village of Beeston, this historic cottage has been tastefully renovated in recent years by the present owners and now represents a heady combination of character features and contemporary details. The location is also particularly appealing with its easy access to Beeston itself, as well as the thriving village of Tarporley, some excellent local schools, the Roman city of Chester and first class north west transport links. Image House itself has numerous enhancements which include an RCD/circuit breaker controlled electrical system, LED lighting bulbs (externally and internally), cast iron Suffolk latched and ledged solid oak internal doors, 100% wool carpets to the first floor, an oil central heating system, oak flooring, a combination of double glazed sealed unit and secondary glazed windows, a remote controlled gated driveway leading to a paviour laid rear parking area and lawned gardens to the side and rear overlooking farmland beyond. The property also has a useful external store as well as genuine character features such as the large tun slate to the main pitched roof, carved stone and sandstone details to the front elevation, painted slate and exposed brick fireplace surrounds, and revealed internal timberwork/ceiling beams.
