This property is an excellent example of a classic inter-war traditional home, elevated and set back from the roadside, with the most fantastic mature gardens at the rear. Unlike many of the other properties in this vicinity, this home boasts an extensive user-friendly driveway, which can accommodate many vehicles and provides ease of access to the attached garaging.

Internally, the house offers a spacious floor plan of accommodation, having been previously extended at the rear to create additional living space and a substantial rear outbuilding. The latter has amazing scope for conversion into a games room, family room or home office. The vast amount of potential does not stop here; planning permission has been granted for a two-story wrap-around extension, which would create a large open plan family kitchen and a master bedroom above with a dressing room and ensuite.

For further information regarding the approved planning application, please visit: and type and type in the reference number 21/1004/HOU.

84 Chester Road South is approached via an extensive block-paved driveway that can accommodate four to five cars, leading to the attached garage at the side of the house, which is longer than the average single garage. The garage benefits from power, lighting and has a rear door providing access from the adjoining utility area, making it an effective workshop too.

From the driveway, a covered porch provides access to a front door and a large welcoming reception hallway. The hallway has doors leading to the sitting room and dining room and stairs rising to the first floor with a cupboard underneath.

Living Room
To the front of the ground floor is a classic bay-fronted living room with a picture rail and a fireplace housing a gas fire, which is the focal point of the room and adds both charm and functionality to the living space.

Dining Room
At the rear of the ground floor is a large dining room, spacious enough to incorporate a second family seating area. It features a door flowing nicely onto the garden and a fireplace with an electric fire, along with useful built-in cupboard space and shelving.

A doorway from the dining room leads to a rear lobby and the kitchen beyond. The lobby has a door providing access to the garden and doors leading to the downstairs WC and kitchen.

The kitchen has lots of scope for extension, especially with the approved planning permission still in place. It comprises matching wall and base units and space for various appliances, including a cooker. There is a window overlooking the garden and a door leading to a utility area and a large workshop.

Utility Area
The spacious utility area is lit with a skylight and has space/plumbing for appliances, with doors leading to the garage and workshop.

The latter is an extensive area added on by previous owners, providing great space for storage and ideal for conversion into further living accommodation such as a games room, home office or family room. This room currently has power, lighting and windows, with a door leading out to the rear garden; it was also reroofed in 2022.

First floor
The first-floor accommodation comprises three bedrooms and a family bathroom, accessed via a landing with a frosted window and a loft hatch.

Bedroom one is a lovely light and airy bay-fronted room featuring an array of fitted wardrobes and storage.

The second bedroom is a spacious double room with pleasant views of the rear garden, while bedroom three is a single room with a view out to the front.

A family bathroom serves the bedrooms and includes a tiled shower cubicle, a panelled bath, a vanity unit and a low-level WC.

Gardens and grounds
A hugely enticing feature of this property is the extensive rear garden, nicely established and extremely private. This quality outside space is great for keen gardeners and families with children alike. Directly at the rear of the property is raised decking, a large patio and a further raised seating area, all of which are excellent options for al fresco dining.

Beyond the decking is a rockery that gives way to a long lawn, extending well back from the property and divided by mature trees halfway along. The second section of the lawn currently hosts a children’s play area, with a vegetable patch and composting area beyond.

Mains gas, electricity, water and drainage. Broadband is available at this property.

2. Serious and material defect in the seller’s legal title. 
3. Local search revealing a matter that has a material adverse effect on the market value of the property that was previously undeclared and not in the public domain.
