One of the most photographed in the village, the earthy hue colours of this stately home, fits perfectly into the New England seaside landscape.

A prominent Chester landmark built in 1875, the structure has been extensively and meticulously updated and restored to its original grandeur. There was pride in workmanship during the complete exterior rebuild.

With six bedrooms, and an additional lower level open concept living space, there is plenty of space for a large family. Comprised of over 2800 square feet of living space and another 975 square foot basement apartment, along with over 1000 square feet work room and loft building, the options are endless.

Alternatively, 53 Queen could be a seasonal property for friends and extended family and provide generous income through rentals. A central Chester location in the summer months is very desirable commodity. Especially one that is steps away from the main intersection.

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.
