Chester is a city in the county of Chesire, located in the North West of England, in close proximity to the border with Wales. With a strong history dating back to Victorian industrialism, the centre of the town has a pleasant aesthetic, gathered around the cathedral.
Such an established and attractive aesthetic makes property in the area incredibly desirable; however there are many less costly areas to live on the periphery of the centre. Upton, Newton and Hoole are clustered around the university, and therefore buying properties in this area in order to rent to students will always be a promising prospect. To the South, Handbridge is a popular residential choice. Developments in the area are relatively modern, and within easy reach of the local schools and colleges as well as the town centre.
Purchasing property near the centre of Chester will always be a sound investment. It is relatively affordable, with sufficient facilities and amenities to serve the needs of any family. In recent years, though, its historical feel and city status are making it more attractive to the middle-to-high income families who place a premium on such a commodity.
