Chester House 1 (1)

Riverside Heart of England

A glorious town house in the heart of historic Chester

If you love a contemporary vibe in a classic setting, you will adore Riverside in the heart of Chester. Both the property and the city blend cosmopolitan flair with timeless elegance.

Set above the ancient city walls, this is a stunning town house in which to gather your close friends or family in comfort and style. Traditional, high-ceilinged rooms are tastefully furnished and decorated in rich, contemporary colours, with some unexpected flourishes (check out the games room).

Pile into the comfy cinema room or the well-equipped games room. Relax with a book in the cosy library. And step out to the garden patio - once described by travel writer Alistair Sawday as “Chester’s equivalent of the Royal Box" - to enjoy front row seats of the spectacular river view.

With a kitchen that’s a joy to cook in, rustle up meals for a crowd or hand over to a private chef to make the occasion special. Then, fill the sociable, open-plan living space with music through the Bluetooth sound system and dance the night away.

When the revelry ends, slip away to one of seven sumptuous super-king bedrooms. Your en-suite might be anything from a luxury spa-style shower room to a gorgeous, free-standing copper bath.

Riverside is quite simply a unique property in an exceptional location in a beautiful city - the perfect setting for a memorable break.

Chester and beyond

Could there be a better location in the UK for a break? Head west for the mountains and coast of Snowdonia or into Lancashire and Cheshire for golf, shopping and country walks. Return to the city for a day at Chester races or Chester Zoo, a cruise on the River Dee, and a journey through history that spans from Roman life to 21st century café culture. You’ll need to stay for at least a week!
