Luxury apartments in council HQ are the most expensive flats sold in Chester since 2010.

The pricey pair of plush properties off Nuns Road each went for more than £1m.

And the larger pad needed a bid of a cool £1.825m to take it off the market.

A flat in Admiralty Arch in London became the most expensive to ever be put on the market earlier this week with a whopping price tag of £150 million.

The two Chester apartments are the second and third priciest sold in Cheshire this decade, coming in just behind a £2m property in Alderley Edge. The figures come from searching the last six and a half years of the Land Registry.

Built in 2009, HQ building features 35 luxury apartments and two penthouses. At the time it was hailed as a ‘landmark project’ by developers.

It is easy to see why the potential bachelor pads would have such a high value, coming with luxurious interiors in a location close to the city centre and stunning views over the racecourse.

You can find one of the two-bedroom flats listed for rent on Rightmove, available early August for £1,400 a month.

HQ is also the home of the 80,000 sq ft Cheshire West and Chester Council offices and the four-star 78-bed Abode hotel.

The scheme’s striking design was created to complement Chester’s historic architecture and incorporates both glass and natural stone cladding with standing seam zinc roofs.
