Chequered Oak House is a fantastic period property dating back to the 1500s which has been very sympathetically renovated. The interiors have many period features including exposed beams and stone and inglenook fireplaces. The oldest part of the house comprises the drawing room and two bedrooms on the first floor with vaulted ceilings and later additions made the property considerably larger over time.

The house now comprises an entrance lobby, drawing room, dining room, kitchen//breakfast room, utility room, cellar, master bedroom and two further bedrooms as well as a study which can also be bedroom four and a family bathroom. The house also has planning permission for further extensions but the present owners, permission granted, don’t need the space so have decided to downsize.

The pretty gardens are terraced and mainly laid to lawn, and are interspersed with a variety of mature and flowering fruit trees. To the rear are further lawns with a pergola and am ornamental pond surrounded by alpine plants and shrubs.

The property is just four miles from the county town of Horsham which has excellent amenities and a fast train service into London Victoria while there is polo, golf and racing all nearby with sailing from Brighton on the south coast.

The guide price is £1.35m and for further information please contact 01483 267 070 or visit www.brownsestateagents.com.
