In the centre of Chester, lies a property in a private enclave with a dreamy southerly exposure. Architecturally, the existing exposed beams give this Old Carriage House a warm cottage aesthetic. 

In 2011, the house was repositioned fifty feet north, raised to create an additional 450 sq/ft. lower level, and completely renovated. Additional solar power, heat pump, insulated concrete form foundation, new windows/doors, and a heat recovery ventilator supports the energy efficient make up of this darling home. 

The open concept main floor and lower level walkout areas provide a spacious living environment. The second floor features a four piece bathroom with tiled shower and claw foot tub, alongside a cute landing/desk space and two snug bedrooms. Another half bathroom and laundry facilities adorn the lower level, adjacent to the recreational area. 887 square feet of hardwood floors comprise the main and second floor. Opposite the trellised pergola where wisteria, climbing roses and grape vines flower you will find classic perennial flower boxes along a bed of grasses and lavender. A perfect setting from the expansive 278 sq/ft. front deck. In 2017 the vision was completed, with a new shed and rock driveway installation. 

Come celebrate life in Chester where everything is possible, including theatre at the Chester Playhouse, latte’s at the Kiwi Café, fine dining at Whitegate, sailing at the Chester Yacht Club, tall tales at the Focsle Tavern and sports at the Chester Tennis & Golf Clubs.
