Property description

Tenure: Freehold

An attractive Grade II listed building of over 5,700 sq ft, offering a wealth of character situated in the centre of Pulborough. With a current planning application submitted for change of use to a residential dwelling.

The property is situated in a central and elevated location in Pulborough. The village provides a good range of local shops, together with 2 supermarkets, a medical centre, library and primary schools as well as a direct mainline rail service to London (Victoria) which is a short walk/bicycle ride away.

Other amenities within the area, include golf at the West Sussex course at Pulborough, racing at Fontwell and Goodwood, the latter of which is also well known for its motor racing events. More comprehensive shopping and leisure facilities can be found at Chichester with its famous Festival Theatre to the south and Horsham to the north.

The Chequers Hotel is an attractive period property believed to have origins in the 16th century. The Georgian stone front was added in the 18th century as part of a refurbishment project and there have also been subsequent additions in later years. The property is currently run as a successful hotel but now offers an exciting opportunity for conversion into a substantial home, with the versatile accommodation offering ample space to create a home office or annexe. An application has been submitted to Horsham District Council (application number) for change of use to residential. Main features of the property include:

Central entrance hall

Sitting Room with inglenook fireplace and exposed beams.

Commercial kitchen

Open-plan dining room and conservatory which would be an ideal space for a large kitchen/dining/sitting room as part of a conversion.

Further reception room and separate office.

Up to 11 bedrooms, 10 en-suite and one adjacent shower room.

Bar and bottle storeroom.


To the rear of the property there is an attractive landscaped garden featuring a large paved terrace, lawn and pond. There is a private car park which is situated opposite the hotel on the other side of Old Rectory Lane. In addition to this there is parking immediately in front of the property.
