About this property

  • Chevin End offers a rare opportunity to acquire a period country home priced to account for improvement and renovation works to a purchaser's own requirement.

    The main house extends to over 4,500 sq ft and was originally constructed probably in 1790 as two substantial stone cottages known as Chevin Cottages. They were then incorporated in the 1920s with a cleverly created and well matched link to create the now substantial country home. The principal reception rooms are of very generous dimensions with superb well-proportioned drawing room, substantial dining room and two smaller cosy sitting rooms/snugs. There is a lovely entrance vestibule and a fine reception hall lit from a lantern light at roof level.

    The generous kitchen and separate breakfast room lead onto the lower hallway with additional store rooms providing further potential.

    To the first floor is the very generous and well-lit main landing leading to a superb master bedroom with wonderful views. There are five further bedrooms within the main body of the house and two family bathrooms. Set to the side wing is an inner landing which was originally servant's quarters where there are four further bedrooms and a secondary staircase leading down to the ground floor. This has potential for creation of a separate annexe if required. Originally there was a separate staircase (now removed providing external access). Set to the side of the house is a fine and private courtyard which leads to a period stone garage and stable block.

    The private, extensive mature gardens are a particular feature of the property with side adjoining paddock area and an early tennis court area. In all some 2.7 acres or thereabouts.
