    About this property

    • Cheveney is set in an elevated rural position, surrounded by formal gardens and parkland, on the edge of Yalding village with its village shop, post office, pubs, pre-school, primary school and doctor's surgery.

      The property is approached over a long gated driveway and was built in the latter part of the 17th Century, originally of oak framed construction under a plain tiled roof, extended in the 19th Century and restored in the early part of the 20th Century. Over the course of the last twelve months, the current owner has undertaken a comprehensive modernisation project, resulting in Cheveney now providing magnificent family accommodation set in an idyllic rural position, yet in easy access to all road and rail services.

      With almost 11,000 sq ft of accommodation, salient points include stylish kitchen and bathroom suites, high ceilings, decorative coving, recessed lighting, dado rails, lead light bay windows, exposed timbers, and extraordinary feature fireplaces. Also of note are the manicured gardens and grounds, together with the impressive lake adorned in established aquatic planting.

      There are five primary reception rooms, all of excellent proportions and accessed primarily from the great hall.

      Cheveney is approached over a sweeping, gated driveway culminating at the front of the property and providing ample off road parking.

      The gardens are a particular feature of the property being a combination of formal beds and and landscaped lawns interspersed with a variety of established evergreen and deciduous trees.

      A terrace spans the property providing ample areas for al fresco entertaining, and an idyllic lake is adorned in established aquatic planting.

      The kitchen/breakfast room is fitted with a comprehensive range of wall and base units with an Aga, space for appliances and an island unit incorporating a breakfast bar. The adjoining family room provides access to a utility room.

      There is a three bedroomed ground floor apartment ideal for staff or family.

      Arranged over the first floor are 8 bedrooms, and an attic room on the second floor.
