A delightful Grade II listed farmhouse with two holiday cottages providing income.
An attractive Grade II Listed farmhouse with extensive accommodation including an attached two bedroom annexe and a separate one bedroom holiday cottage. Set within pretty grounds, this is a delightful period home located between Corsham and Chippenham.
Chequers Farm offers a great deal of period charm and original features and has been lovingly restored by the current owners. The property is accessed via a five bar gate into a pretty gravelled courtyard with ample space for parking. This courtyard provides access to the rear door of the main house, via a path to the rear of the house, and also access to the two holiday rentals, Chequers Barn and The Cattle Byre.
The front door of the house opens into the entrance hall which has stairs to the first floor and access to all ground floor accommodation. The dining room, office and sitting room are situated at the front of the house, both enjoying sash windows and fireplaces with the sitting room having a lovely parquet wood floor and a stunning fireplace with stone surround. From the sitting room there is access into a storage area which leads into the two bedroom annexe, which is utilised as 'Chequers Barn' holiday rental. This can either be closed off for rental, or opened up if being used as a part of the main house accommodation.
The large utility boot room has generous amounts of storage and space for a washing machine, dryer, dishwasher and fridge. This leads through into the beautiful farmhouse kitchen with its restored 'A' frame oak trusses, wood panelling and beautiful stone floor. This stunning room is the heart of the house and benefits from a beautiful Neptune kitchen. A central island, fitted with an induction hob provides storage and a breakfast bar, along with granite worksurfaces, space for an American style fridge/freezer and a range cooker which is built into a former chimney breast with oak mantle.
