A charming semi-detached Grade II Listed property, currently run as a Bed & Breakfast, with stunning views over the River Dee, private mooring rights and off-street parking

Grove Villa is situated in a prime position, overlooking the River Dee, and within minutes' walk of central Chester. The property has been run as a Bed & Breakfast for a number of years, though could just as easily be a family home. The kitchen and bathrooms have all been modernised, and yet the property retains many character features, the house being built in 1836.

The house is accessed via a small storm porch into the entrance hall. To the right is a sizeable sitting room with Adams fireplace and gas fire, and French doors onto the garden, overlooking the River Dee. On the left hand side is the dining room, with doors to both the utility room, and from there to the kitchen, and a downstairs bedroom with shower room adjoining. The bedroom has a door directly onto the charming courtyard. The kitchen can be accessed from the hall, the utility room and also via the courtyard garden; it has fitted light oak units, gas top cooker and built in electric cookers, and laminate worksurfaces.

A turned mahogany staircase leads up to a good-sized landing, and there is an original Victorian stained glass sky-light. Upstairs are four double bedrooms, three of which have wonderful river views, and two have en suite shower rooms. There is also a large family bathroom. The largest bedroom has the benefit of a small sitting area, as well as a private shower room and separate W.C. and overlooks the lovely courtyard. From the upstairs landing is access to a spacious loft, currently used for storage.


At the front of the house are south facing gardens with stunning views over the River Dee. There is an array of shrubs and planted borders within the walled garden. The main entrance to the property is on the southern elevation and a brick pathway leads up to the front door. To the rear of the property is a charming sheltered brick-paved courtyard with 2 small planted beds, seating areas, a useful storage shed with flat roof, and steps up to a door onto a narrow lane used by the residents of The Groves. Grove Villa also has the benefit of private mooring rights immediately opposite the house.


The property is in one of Chester's most desirable locations within minutes’ walk from the City centre and from Chester Race Course.

Chester offers a comprehensive array of shops and facilities. Recreational activities include racing at the Roodee Racecourse, golf courses, as well as rowing, sailing and canoeing on the River Dee.

There is a good local choice of state and private schools, including Boughton Heath Primary School and the highly regarded King’s and Queen’s Schools. The property is well placed for commuting to the commercial centres of the North West, and Chester Station offers a direct line service to London Euston, within 2 hours.


From our office, head up Lower Bridge Street and turn right at the traffic lights. Turn right down Souter's Lane, just after going under the archway. Proceed down to the bottom, and park near Hickory's restaurant. Walk along the River Dee, with the river on your right, past the Snugburys Cafe and Grove Villa is found on the left hand side after about a 2 minute walk.
