Travel to London is available from Chester station via Crewe from which there is a 1 hr 40 mins service to Euston. Description 13 Curzon Park North occupies a private position set well back from the road amongst a stand of mature trees. Built in the 1950's of brick under a tiled roof the house has never been offered to the open market until now. It has an elegant symmetrical front faade of Georgian influence with wide sash windows either side of a central front door with pillared portico, beneath a steep pitched roof with high brick chimney stacks. The accommodation is arranged over two floors served by central heating, and the rooms are beautifully proportioned, designed to take full advantage of the lovely views across the gardens to the front and rear which is south facing. Whilst the extent of the living space is comfortable and well appointed for its time, it is perhaps now dated, and the site would clearly support further investment. Indeed, there is seemingly tremendous potential to extend the overall floor area, subject to the availability of planning permission, to create a larger dwelling which would be more in proportion with its plot and the neighbouring properties. In summary, Thornbury offers buyers an exciting and unusual opportunity to acquire a wonderful family home with scope for further improvement set amongst extremely private and beautiful grounds in one of Chester's most sought after residential locations. Double front doors open to a vestibule and on into the hall in the centre of the house. To one side is an impressive lounge, with double aspect to the front and rear, a French door to the rear garden, and fireplace with decorative surround and marble inset. On the opposite side of the hall is the dining room, with fitted cupboard and which has a party wall to the kitchen which incorporates a range of wall and floor units with cupboards and drawers beneath work surfaces, twin sink unit, a 4 ring Solarspeed electric hob, Hotpoint fridge and breakfast bar. Beyond the kitchen the accommodation becomes single storey. There is a utility with plumbing for washing machine and tumble dryer, sink, Worcester boiler and doors to the garage and outside. The garage has aplenty of storage units and loft storage, an electric roller door and rear door to outside. Accessed independently each from outside are an office and playroom. A turned staircase with picture window to the south rises from the hall to a galleried landing. The master bedroom is a particularly impressive room overlooking the front of the property. It has a pair of windows, fitted wardrobes and an en-suite bathroom. There are two further double bedrooms served by a family bathroom within which is access to the loft which provides fantastic storage. Gardens & Grounds Thornbury stands in an attractive mature garden setting which has been established over the circa 70 years since Thornbury was built and of course prior to the building's existence. The approach is over a tarmacadamed drive flanked by a lawn with attractive oak trees to a wide parking area beneath the north front. The main gardens are to the south of the house and benefit from a high degree of privacy. Across the rear elevation is a stone terrace with floral and herbaceous borders beyond which is a lawn which extends away from the house towards the lake and where there is a stand of trees including lime and beech, together with several clipped yews and conifers. The lake is a very unusual and extremely interesting part of Thornbury. It has a central island, accessed from the garden by a bridge, with paved patio and numerous trees and bushes. The island is densely planted, and with some clearing could provide a secluded and peaceful seating area.
