A UNIQUE opportunity to purchase this BEAUTIFUL AND HISTORIC family home, located in the extremely desirable HOOLE area of Chester within walking distance of the city centre and an EASY WALK to the train station, and with easy access the motorway network ideally located for commuting to London, Liverpool or Manchester. This Victorian 6 bedroom detached property was originally built as a home to Charles Brown the owner of Browns of Chester (now Debenhams) once seen as the Harrods of the North, he went on to be Mayor of Chester 6 times and was renowned for his good works, there are memorials to him and his parents in Chester to this day. “Spring Lodge” (the name of the house) is set within a private conservation area in the ancient Hamlet of Flookersbrook on the outskirts of Hoole. The house is fronted by a private road and well maintained Plantation which has a small stream or ‘brook’ running through it, which residents have access to. This private road was part of the Medieval thoroughfare into Chester City. The property is not listed but is in a conservation area so the facade as you would expect is to be protected.
Spring Lodge does require renovating to return it to its former glory but contains an abundance of wonderful original features, one of the reasons it was recently used as a location for the filming of new Netflix series “The Irregulars” a Sherlock Holmes spin off series.
The property briefly comprises of; Entrance hall, three receptions, orangery (currently undergoing maintenance works), kitchen, pantry/larder room, 3 bathrooms, 6 bedrooms, attic storage, out buildings, garage and mature gardens with off road parking. This truly is a must see property and is an ideal opportunity for a family or a developer to give new life to a wonderful home.
