Big thanks to Alex for pointing us in the direction of this 1960s modernist-style property in Chester, Cheshire.
Essentially, we are featuring this because of the renovation. Yes, the building is quite interesting, not least because it was formally the Christchurch Vicarage with a large cross on the front (see the agent listing for a sketch of that original building). But the work that has gone into this place really has taken it to the nest level.
In fact, if you love the idea of a ‘retro’ finish and some nice 1960s period features, this should be right up your street.
There’s a lovely midcentury modern vibe throughout, with the parquet floors, the wood ceilings, the staircase, the open plan space and many of the fixtures and fittings. They sit well with some more contemporary detailing, not least the feature log-burning fire in the living room.
A good amount of space too. That includes an entrance and hall with that original woodblock floor, a cloakroom, a living room with the stove and built-in cupboards, a dining room via a sliding partition wall and access to the garden, a stylish modern kitchen with a view of the Little Theatre and church, a utility and a further stinking room, again with access to the garden.
Head up that very cool original 1960s staircase and past the long architectural window and you will find four double bedrooms and a bathroom, as well as a drying room.
Outside space includes a double driveway, a garage and lawned garden with walled boundary to the front, along with a large rear garden and space for one more car at the front.
Very stylish and on the market for £500,000.
