Checkendon is located on the edge of the Chiltern Hills in a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. This close knit village dates back to the 12th century and has many amenities including a popular primary school and pre-school, local church plus equestrian centre and sports facilities on the recreation ground with its sports pavilion catering for the village cricket club and football team. The village is within 15 minutes drive of both Henley on Thames and Reading town centre. Reading offers excellent commuting links into London Paddington and Oxford, and the opening of Crossrail expected in 2022. There is extensive and varied access to countryside footpaths and bridleways/ridgeway.

The front door opens into an enclosed porch, with a second glazed door opening into a reception snug, with original features including terracotta tiled floor, ceiling beams and open fireplace. A dining room is located from the entrance hall, with an open fire (currently blocked up), terracotta tiled floor and ceiling beams and leading to a WC. The sitting room is front aspect, again with exposed beams and an open fireplace with a Contura woodburning stove. A small study is accessible from the side of the sitting room. Accordion folding doors and steps also lead down to a conservatory/garden room, which in turn has double doors onto the rear patio. The kitchen is rear aspect and is fitted with a range of painted wooden units with granite worktops and a contrasting central island with oak worktop. The kitchen has space for an Aga, as well as integrated appliances including conventional electric hob, oven and dishwasher, with a larder cupboard. A glazed door and hatch opens to a family room with French doors to the rear garden, as well as folding doors to the conservatory and access into the entrance hall. The kitchen also leads to a rear lobby, with a door to the rear, and a utility room with space for appliances, an additional sink and a door to the side. The rear lobby also provides access to a self contained annexe, which includes a multi purpose studio room with a vaulted ceiling, French doors to the rear and a kitchenette including sink, larder fridge and two burner electric hob. This annexe space also has built in wardrobes and a shower room.
A turning staircase leads to the first floor landing. The main bedroom is dual aspect overlooking the rear gardens, with built in wardrobes and an en-suite bathroom. There are three further front aspect double bedrooms with built in wardrobes. A family bathroom fitted with a bath with shower over and a separate shower room completes the accommodation.

Set on a corner plot, the property is enclosed at the front by low picket fencing, and a mix of hedging at the back. Access at both sides leads to the rear. To the rear is a large bricked patio seating area adjacent to the house, with an additional wooden decked seating area at the rear. The garden is primarily laid to lawn with planted beds and borders.
A drive to the side with a five bar timber gate opens to gravelled off street parking leading to the garage. The plot as a whole measures approximately 0.4 acres.

There is a detached brick built double garage with twin up and over doors, light and power and a pedestrian door to the side.
