The local property market is quite active, with prices sitting above the national average. A demand for purpose-built student accommodation for the University of Chester may be the major push behind the growth, as demand has surged in recent years with the university expanding its curriculum and student capacity.

Some of the views from properties in Neston are beautiful since it is situated in close proximity to the Dee Estuary. Relaxing walks can be had in the outstanding and award-winning Ness Botanic gardens.

Just south of Chester is the picturesque village of Malpas, sitting deep in the south Cheshire countryside. Malpas is home to a regular farmers market, quaint local shops and is an ideal location to explore the surrounding areas of Cheshire, Shropshire and North Wales. Neighbouring areas of similar historic tradition are Helsby and the market town of Frodsham.
