A wonderful country house with over 5,000 sq.ft of stylish living space and grounds of about. 1.9 acres.
Sitting just off the green, Chequers House commands a lovely position with views across the common and up towards the Zoo.
This magnificent home was built, we understand, circa 1930 and has undergone an extensive programme of works over recent years to now offer a truly fabulous family home over four floors.
The house is light and airy and with most of the rooms benefiting from views over the mature landscaped gardens or the common. Of particular note is the spacious triple aspect kitchen/breakfast room built and fitted by Martin Moore with a range of bespoke units, useful central island and Aga with adjoining companion. The double aspect drawing room flows through to the dining room and study beyond, whilst off the central hallway is a lovely informal snug sitting room.
The master bedroom is rather special. It features a fabulous vaulted ceiling and a spiral staircase from a small galleried landing, that leads down to the kitchen/breakfast room.
Other noteworthy features include the lower ground floor, which can be accessed from either an internal staircase or via a separate front door, where a boot room, shower room and a great playroom/cinema can be found.
The gardens are extensive and mature, and mainly laid to lawn with well stocked herbaceous and perennial borders and a selection of trees which provide a high degree of privacy. A large sun terrace abuts the house and is ideal for al-fresco dining and entertaining.
