Star property over £500,000

Since last orders were called at The Old Chequers this former pub has been converted into a beautiful family home.

The front door off a quiet road in scenic Welwyn Village, Hertfordshire opens out into what was originally the split level bar, with windows to the front of the house and a large red brick inglenook fireplace at the centre of the room.

A spiral staircase in the corner of the room leads down into the basement and a dining room with a difference.

What was the beer cellar is now a great spot to eat, with the original vaulted red brick ceiling leading through to a bar at the far end which takes the property back to its roots.

The rest of the ground floor above includes an office, tastefully appointed kitchen with an Aga and a family room beyond. Upstairs on the first floor are four bedrooms and two bathrooms.

And at the end of the bottom of the private rear patio at the back of the main house is an annexe, which has three bedrooms – including a master with a dressing room – a sitting room, kitchen and bathroom.

What looks like a pretty cottage from the street hides masses of house beyond.
