Quietly tucked away in the historic village of Dorchester, The Chequers is full of character and charm.

The house has contemporary interiors including an open-plan kitchen/breakfast room with bi-fold doors to the West facing garden. EPC exempt.
The riverside village of Dorchester-on-Thames has Roman origins and there is an Iron Age fort in the surrounding hills. The magnificent Abbey dates back to 635AD and the charming church of St Birinus is just opposite The Chequers. Surrounded by water meadows and the rivers of Thame and the Thames, the village has featured in a number of TV series and films including Midsomer Murders. There is a local shop, fine pubs and hotels with restaurants, with the town of Wallingford, just 4 miles distant, providing more extensive facilities including a large Waitrose store. Dorchester is also served by a number of rail links: Didcot Parkway - 8 miles, Culham - 4 miles, and Oxford - 10 miles accessing London, Paddington in 44 minutes. There are a good selection of state and private schools accessible including St Edwards and The Dragon at Oxford and Abingdon and Radley Schools, while The European School is within close proximity at Culham, and Dorchester itself has a village primary school. There are miles of walking in the surrounding countryside and along the Thames Path.
Formerly a village inn, the spacious accommodation is arranged over three floors. There is a charming sitting room, a cosy snug with fireplace and a family room or playroom. To the rear of the house is a superb new green oak and glass kitchen/breakfast room with vaulted ceiling and bi-fold doors to the garden. Fitted with a good range of painted wall and floor units, there is a range cooker and dishwasher. The old pub cellar with brick floor has been converted to a utility room with cloakroom. Two staircases access the first and second floors. To the first floor there is a large master bedroom with fitted wardrobes, a double bedroom with a vaulted ceiling, a double bedroom which is currently used as a study, a shower room and a family bathroom. To the second floor there are two further double bedrooms. There are delightful views over the water meadows and the river.
