Property Description

A stylishly appointed two bedroomed apartment set within a conversion of a property rich in character along one of Chester's most notable and sought after addresses.

Thorn House is an elegant residence contains five apartments with all owners forming part of Thorn House Management Committee. There are pleasant tended communal grounds and particular attributes of the property are the benefit of a large garage and its own independent access to the apartment with steps up from the car park, where the property also benefits from an allocated parking space.

The apartment has been upgraded quite considerably during our client's residency with decoration to all walls and ceilings, fitting of an electric heating system and a replacement modern bathroom suite. We believe the property should be of particular interest to a wide range of buyers but particularly downsizers, first time buyers and indeed buy-to-let investors, as the property lies within ease of access of Chester city centre and also a range of local amenities.

The accommodation comprises: Entrance hall accessed via a composite double glazed door with attractive wood effect laminate flooring, fitted double storage cupboard and cupboard housing a hot water cylinder; kitchen with a range of fitted units; and an open plan living/dining room, the principal area of the apartment, with a stunning large original bay window to the front with leaded light tops. There are two bedrooms, with the second bedroom used as a dressing room by our clients, but a generous single room in its own right and features a double wardrobe. Completing the accommodation is a bathroom with a suite installed in July 2018.

Location Thorn House lies on the corner of Lache Lane and Lache Park Avenue, a highly prestigious address within Chester. The property lies only a short walk away from Westminster Park with its array of shopping facilities including a Co-operative convenience store, delicatessen, fruit and veg store, fishmonger and butchers. The property is also a short walk away from a regular bus service to the city centre whilst being only moments away from the Westminster Park 9 hole municipal golf course with its surrounding grounds being ideal for dog walkers.
