A contemporary detached house for sale in Chester


Good morning one and all, have you missed me? I have spent the last few weeks visiting auntie Lucy and my best buddy Millie the Labrador. A wonderful time was had by all, with plenty of long walks and leisurely snoozes in the sun. I now feel fully rested and bounded into the office this morning like a whirling dervish of energy.

I suspect that my colleagues hastily shipped me back out the office this morning simply to get a bit of peace! But, whatever the reason, I left with a spring in my step and copious amounts of enthusiasm, and duly set off in the direction of Boughton to explore a recently built contemporary detached house.


When I arrived at Becketts Lane I followed the directions to a discreet gravel driveway which led down to Lime Tree House which, I noticed, comes complete with a double garage. Standing outside the front of the house I had a good look around and was delighted to see how thoroughly private this property is, a veritable enclave of seclusion.

Focusing my attention on the house and craning my neck I looked up, admiring the elegant façade. It boasts a stylish symmetry which is exceptionally pleasing to my desire for order! Making my way to the porch my eye was also caught by the stylish up down lights positioned on either side of the front door and I thought to myself how fabulously sophisticated this house would look at night. Heading through the front door I found myself in a very attractive hallway. Wandering around, with my claws clattering cheerfully on the tiled floor I saw that attention had been given to every last detail. I especially loved the contemporary feel that the open staircase with glass panelling and the discreet spotlights engender. Even better my dad reliably informed me that both the ground and first floors have underfloor heating – delicious, toasty warm paws in the depths of winter is of vital importance to a thoroughly pampered pug!

Already feeling very enamoured with Lime Tree House I stepped through a door on my right and my paws immediately sank into the rich pile of a luxurious carpet. I walked around the room feeling like I was bouncing on air. All of a sudden trying to be sensible was just too much like hard work and, with a squeal of joy, I gave in to exuberance and proceeded to bounce off all fours all the way around the room. On that basis I can highly recommend the quality of the carpet!


On the opposite side of the hallway I found both a cloakroom and room which I would use as a home office – after all, a pug has got to have somewhere to run his empire from! My next stop was the open plan kitchen dining and family room with a handy utility room tucked off from the main room. In a nod to a truly modern way of living I could easily imagine that my family and I would spend the majority of our time in this wonderful large space. Light and contemporary with super sleek kitchen units and bifolding doors to outside from the family room area it would be the perfect place to gather come winter or summer. I could just picture drinks parties with my friends from the Chester district of the Dogs’ Club, even Percy the Pekingese would struggle to find anything to complain about – a nice chap but rather a stickler for decorum.

Turning about tail I headed back into the hallway once again and started up the stairs with high expectations of the upper floor of Lime Tree House. It will come as no surprise to learn that this storey delighted me equally as much as the ground floor. I found four double bedrooms, two with en suite shower rooms and a family bathroom.

Padding from room to room, savouring the feeling of the deep pile carpet under my paws I may have succumbed to curling up for forty winks in a patch of sunlight but this was merely in the interests of research you understand. With a rather expressive stretch and a yawn I shook myself awake and out the corner of my eye spied a door in the ceiling - how exciting!  Dad explained that this is called a loft hatch, now this sounded intriguing and so with a series of high-pitched barks I proceeded to insist that we have a look.  Muttering under his breath, dad opened the hatch and held me up for a look around - what a huge space which was also fully boarded out, I wriggled furiously, desperate to explore but dad held firm and my plans for exploration were thwarted!  Back on solid ground, I felt in a bit of a huff and marched back downstairs with a somewhat haughty air.  My final stop was the garden which, whilst not overly large, is a lovely private spot with a large patio area – what more do you need – as long as I have a suntrap to lie in, I am a happy pug.
