The property, which has been our clients' family home for many years, is brought to the market offering excellent scope for personalisation and expansion (subject to any necessary planning and building consents) but offers the benefit of modifications over our clients' stay, including a single storey extension to the rear creating a further reception area and larger kitchen, without interfering with the beautiful gardens the home has to offer.
There is much charm and innate character throughout, not least upon entry to the property itself where there is an open covered porch area with period tiling and original door with its leaded light and stained glass panelled surround.
In total the property offers three separate reception rooms, with the living room being the principal area of the home extending to over 21ft in length, with a bay window to the front and French doors to the rear. There is a dining room to the front which our clients use as their home office operation. To the rear is a breakfast room which benefits from a single storey extension and features a kitchen off, with a range of fitted units and a breakfast area, and a separate utility room which has a door linking through to the integral garage. Completing the accommodation on the ground floor is a cloakroom/WC.
On the first floor, there are four bedrooms, all benefiting from fitted wardrobe storage, and completing the accommodation is a bathroom featuring a three piece suite.
The property benefits from UPVC double glazing and gas central heating.
This large home caters for a family not only in accommodation size but also outside space. To the front is a large driveway laid to pea gravel offering parking comfortably for 3-4 vehicles with a turning circle and borders which feature mature shrubs and trees, which offer a degree of screening from Mill Lane itself. The rear garden is a fantastic feature of the home and should be of particular interest to horticulturists amongst us. Directly from the property itself is a large shaped crazy paved seating terrace with an ornamental pond feature with waterfall and lawned gardens which feature stepping stones to beech hedging, with an open archway leading through to a further lawned area and small orchard with fruit trees.
Mill Lane is situated in Upton, with it being a highly respected road in one of Chester's most desirable areas. Upton is well served by local schools which have good reputations in addition to the King's & Queen's independent schools falling within easy travelling distance, and a good range of local shops and recreational activities, most notably Upton-by-Chester Golf Club which the rear garden backs onto. There are regular bus services near by, as well as the Chester southerly by pass and indeed access to major road networks for Liverpool, Manchester and North Wales. The property itself is an approximate 10 minute drive from Chester city centre and if one is requiring a commute to Liverpool, the Merseyrail 'Bache' Station is also close by.

The property is approached via a private driveway offering off-road parking for numerous vehicles, with the driveway being laid to pea gravel with a turning circle which features mature shrubs. The front garden offers a good degree of privacy from Mill Lane itself via stocked shrub and tree borders and gated access can be enjoyed to both sides of the property. The driveway leads to an integral garage and a covered porch into the property itself.
The rear garden forms a most notable and attractive feature of the home. It offers an excellent degree of privacy and backs onto Upton Golf Course (the fifth fairway, 100 yards or so from the tee position). The garden has been our clients' pride and joy and it is hard to question this once you have stepped foot into it. Directly from the property itself is an expansive crazy paved seating terrace with shaping and curves which soon becomes an ornamental pond with water feature engulfed by lawned areas with stepping stones passing a brick built barbeque and garden seat and table. These all pass stocked herbaceous borders to a beech hedge with an arched opening leading to a further section of garden. This can be described as a mini orchard with a collection of fruit trees, shed and purpose built compost area. Outside lighting, power and water facilities are available and all in all this area should be of particular interest to those green fingered amongst us!
Proceed out of Chester along the A5116 Liverpool Road out of the city to the roundabout close to Morrisons supermarket. Continue straight across and bear right, turning onto Mill Lane itself. Passing through the location shopping facilities at Bache, proceed under the bridge and travel up Mill Lane. Continue on and soon after the turning into Upton Park on your right hand side, the property will be observed on your left.
