Full description

The Old Chequers commands a pleasant position, set well back from the road in very pretty surroundings which are just a short distance from West Wickham. The residence, which stands detached of timber framed, rendered elevations under a recently re-ridged thatched roof, is Grade II Listed and was formally a public house. It has since been converted into a residential property and sympathetically improved in recent years to create a simply stunning family home. Boasting many period features, including a wealth of exposed timbers and Inglenook fireplaces, the property offers extremely spacious and versatile accommodation of rare character and charm.

In brief, the ground floor comprises of a reception hall, a bespoke kitchen/breakfast room, a dining room, a sitting room and an office which has the benefit of an en suite shower room and could be used as a potential annexe/occasional sixth bedroom.

On the first floor there is a landing, five bedrooms and a large four-piece family bathroom. One of the bedrooms features a mezzanine/sleeping platform above. Bedrooms four and five are interconnecting.

The property further boasts a huge loft storage space which is accessed through either the landing or one of the bedrooms.

Outside, the property is set within the most delightful gardens. To the front, there is ample off-road parking and an outbuilding which has previously had planning consent to be converted into a garage. The stunning rear garden is a particular feature of the residence, being predominantly laid to well-maintained lawn which are bordered with flower and shrub beds, plants and mature trees. There are also fruit and vegetable patches, a wildlife meadow and a generous patio area. The grounds measure approximately 3/4 of an acre in total and enjoys excellent levels of privacy and seclusion, backing onto open countryside.
