THE final phase of work to convert redundant Chester city centre office buildings into a new homes is due to be completed by the end of the month.

Developer Blueoak Estates has already sold half of the properties up for grabs in the latest phase of the award-winning development – 1 Heritage Court.

Comprising 11 studio, one and two-bedroom homes, as well as a penthouse, the scheme has only four apartments remaining.

1 Heritage Court marks the final phase of the wider scheme which has seen the transformation of disused office sites on Lower Bridge Street into luxury apartments.

Iain MacLean, managing director of Blueoak, said: "This has been a brilliant development on many different levels. It represents a great example of reimagining redundant office buildings within the city centre and redesigning them for modern city centre living.

"Our commitment, as ever, is to go above and beyond what is expected of a first time buyer or investor property, and this scheme undoubtedly raises the bar.

"The site is located within the city walls, includes a private and secure courtyard with parking to select units, as well as lift access, cycle store and more.

"With an entry level price point as low as £135,000, these homes are already attracting strong interest with a quick sell out on all former phases – we anticipate a similar uptake here."

Heritage Court marked Blueoak Estates’ first ever development, that saw several buildings within the iconic circle courtyard converted into luxury one, two and three bedroom homes.

The development was recognised as a huge success both commercially, and in terms of architectural merit, and was shortlisted for a coveted RICS award.

Blueoak Estates will be opening the doors of 1 Heritage Court on Saturday, October 16 between 10am and 12pm for those wishing to view and reserve early, ahead of build completion at the end of the month.
