This unique spacious apartment occupies the top 2 floors of The Tower, an individually designed detached building of just 3 apartments in a prime location on the reputable Duchess Place development. Duchess Place is superbly situated on the edge of Chester city centre, and this rare duplex apartment, the most desirable on this quality-build development, has the benefit of two allocated parking spaces close to the entrance hall into the building itself.

In addition, this and the two other apartments in The Tower benefit from a large south-facing garden solely for the use of these three apartments. 

There are two independent entrance doors at the ground level of the apartment, one into a vestibule/sizeable storage room, the other into the hallway. Off this hallway the three double bedrooms are located, including the master bedroom plus en-suite shower room, and a further full bathroom. Off the inner hall there is a spindled turned staircase leading to the first floor where there is an expansive open plan living/dining room with its theme of light and space, with two sliding doors out onto a full-width private balcony area. Off the living/dining room there is a large kitchen with a range of fitted units and appliances, breakfast area, a further door onto the private balcony area, and boarded loft.

There are double-glazed windows and electric including storage heating throughout.
