High Street, Fordwich, CT2
6 bedroom house in Fordwich
£692 per week
Chequers Barn is built in the style of a Kentish barn, using a 200 year old oak frame and modern construction methods to create a property that reaps the benefits of both new and old.
Situated in Fordwich, arguably the smallest town in the country and a former Cinque Port, it is highly regarded for its heritage and architecture. The River Stour meanders through this historic town and the bordering alluvial pastures provide picturesque and excellent grazing for prized local beef.
Nestled behind a gated driveway in a tree-lined plot, this imposing property offers extensive accommodation over approximately 5,300 sq ft.
The ground floor features a large living room with adjoining conservatory, a family room, dining room, study, kitchen/breakfast room and utility room with shower. The master suite resides in its own wing, with a separate dressing room, indulgent en-suite facilities, gym, sauna and steam room.
Stairs via the plant room lead up to an extensive storage area which extends to nearly 55ft.
A large and open galleried landing sits within the cart entrance which is glazed from floor to ceiling.
There are a further five bedrooms on the first floor, two of which benefitting from en-suite facilities and one also having a dressing room.
A second flight of stairs lead up to the games room which extends to nearly 60ft in length.
A pretty and private garden lies to the rear of the property, which provides a pleasant and quiet retreat in which to relax or entertain. This easy to manage space is predominantly laid to lawn with planted borders and a hard-landscaped terrace immediately adjoining the property.
The nearby village of Sturry is within a short walk of Fordwich and offers several local shops and a mainline station with high-speed connections to London. There is also a primary school and The Junior King's School.
