    About this property

    • Chequer is a prominent Grade II listed town house of wonderful proportions, occupying a prime position within Rye Citadel and featuring over 5,000 sq ft of beautifully presented accommodation with far reaching views to the rear across the River Rother to Romney Marsh.

      This superb detached family home, believed to have been built in 1816 is situated in the centre of the popular coastal town of Rye which is steeped in history and famous for its cobbled streets and smuggling activities.

      Internally the property offers extremely versatile accommodation arranged over four floors and includes elegant entertaining rooms, a fine staircase which sweeps through the centre of the building and lovely high ceilings and sash windows, as one might expect from a property of this era.
      The lower ground floor accommodation benefits from a separate entrance to the rear and could easily be separated to provide a self-contained flat or holiday let subject to necessary planning consents.

      Outside to the rear there is a terraced garden on two levels with areas of lawn and seating. From the first floor kitchen access can be gained to the most wonderful roof terrace with far reaching views across the town and to the sea.

      View payable Stamp Duty for this property

    I love the view from the kitchen which overlooks the rooftops of Rye and countryside beyond. The roof terrace is a real bonus and a place to enjoy a morning coffee or an afternoon G & T
