The property was completed at the end of 2020 and is likely to be one of the few, if indeed only, new build individual detached properties within the walls in recent years. Despite it's proximity to the city centre, 4 Black Friars occupies a position off a quiet backwater with spectacular far reaching views across the racecourse and on to the Welsh hills. The south facing balconies ensure a sunny aspect all day long whilst also providing views across the city rooftops and taking in the impressive HQ development. Chester has many high street retailers complemented by out of town retail parks and supermarkets at the nearby Cheshire Oaks and Broughton Shopping Centres. The city offers a good selection of both private and state schools including the King's & Queen's which are both within walking distance. On the recreational front there is sailing and rowing on the river, tennis and squash clubs on Wrexham Road, cricket, rugby and football clubs nearby as well as a golf club at Chester Curzon Park and of course horse racing on the nearby Roodee Course the majority of which is visible from the property. COMMUNICATIONS The area enjoys excellent road links with access to the M53 and M56 motorways beyond Chester permitting daily travel to all areas of commerce throughout the North West including Liverpool and Manchester which are both served by international airports. Travel to London is available via Chester Station, which is within walking distance, with a sub-2 hour inter-city rail service to Euston. DESCRIPTION 4 Black Friars is an architect designed detached property completed late 2020 on what was believed to be the last individual building plot within the City Walls. The house is constructed to a high specification, of brick and block with concrete floors throughout providing for a robust and quality build allowing for under floor heating to all floors. Indeed, the house offers a high level of energy efficiency such that it has low running costs relative to its size. The quality of the interior finish is exceptional with extensive use of ceramic tiling to many floors and bathrooms, a bespoke German/Kchenhaus kitchen with extensive range of Siemens appliances, in-ceiling speakers for Sonos system, solid doors, Duravit sanitary ware and Grohe fitments to the bathrooms, engineered oak boards to the top floor and of particular note is the impressive turned staircase from ground to third floor having open oak treads and glazed banister. The house has anthracite coloured powder coated aluminium windows together with bifolds at first and third floors opening to wide balconies with ''infinity' glazed balustrades. The design is to take full advantage of the site having fully utilised the space available, focusing on creating a house which is practical to occupy including secure parking provision, while at the same time one which has impressive living space for everyday use and entertaining with particular emphasis on the fantastic views to the racecourse and across the city. From the entrance hall, which has a large cloaks cupboard, there is access to the inner hall off which is the utility with sink and plumbing for a washer and dryer, opposite which is direct access into the garage. This is an invaluable part of the property providing parking for two cars plus storage. Within the garage, which has an Hormann electric roller door, is the Ideal boiler and pressurised cylinder tank as well as a rear door to the garden. At the far end of the building is a guest suite with double bedroom with access to the garden and en-suite shower room. The stairs rise to the first floor which is comprised of double bedroom, separate W.C., and double doors leading to the expansive space which showcases the kitchen and main everyday living area. An impressive room featuring a large central island with an Elica induction hob and inbuilt extractor as well as an extensive range of wall and floor units with cupboards and drawers beneath quartz work surfaces. There are integrated full height fridge and freezer, microwave oven and oven with grill, Bosch dishwasher and single drainer sink. At the other end of the room there is plenty of space for sofas and table and chairs, and there is also a feature bio ethanol fire. Bifold doors open to a balcony where the internal tiled floor extends outside to meet the infinity glazed balustrade. The balcony wraps around the south and east of the building providing a superb outdoor living area. At second floor level the master suite faces south with open aspect towards HQ and the racecourse having wide sliding doors and juliet balcony. There is a deep in-built wardrobe and en-suite bathroom incorporating a free standing bath and separate large walk-in shower. In addition there is a further double bedroom and study/fifth bedroom served by a family shower room. The staircase continues to the top floor. A galleried landing has a fitted bar/ refreshment area and access to the sitting room which has triple aspect views - north across the city, west to the Welsh Hills and south-west towards the racecourse. It is a wonderfully light room with feature fire and bifolds to the spacious balcony from which the views are quite superb.
