Chequers Court Historic Mountain Cottage

Located in: Blackheath
Chequers Court is a classic 1880s mountains weatherboard home with masses of charm. It retains many original features of the period, while providing all modern comforts.

This is the perfect venue to gather multiple generations of the family together or for a group of friends to spend quality time together.

Relax and discover the delights of crisp mountain air, quiet starry nights and long discussions or games around the kitchen table.

The Blackheath area is magnificent all year round. Enjoy scenic walks and picturesque day trips starting from the front door as you discover the many treasures nearby!

The House and Garden

Chequers Court can accommodate up to 12 people in the house and separate cottage. The property is always booked as one item so that you always have the property to yourselves.

See the floorplan in the picture gallery to get an idea of the layout. It's a bit like a Cluedo board without the secret passages!

The main house has 3 bedrooms. Two bedrooms have queen beds and the other has a king bed which can also be made up as twin beds. There are two bathrooms in the house. The main bathroom has a clawfoot bath and separate shower.

The well equipped kitchen has a large extendable table and chairs, a wood burning combustion stove with an oven, 2 porcelain sinks with separate preparation areas, a dishwasher, microwave and gas oven with cooktop. There is also an under cover barbecue connected to natural gas just outside the kitchen door.

The house features a comfortable library/sitting room with a wide range of books for both adults and children to choose from. The formal lounge has a 3D TV, DVD player and gas log fireplace. The enclosed verandah wrapped around the house provides many cosy nooks for you to curl up with a book. There is also a handy ipod dock so that you can listen to your favourite music.

The separate cottage has a further 2 bedrooms, living area with TV/DVD player and its own bathroom. This is a great space for the 'kids domain'. Either bedroom can be made up with a king bed or twin beds. The cottage has a newly installed reverse cycle air conditioner/heater which provides a comfortable environment in any weather conditions.

Chequers Court sits on a half-acre block with plenty of interesting secrets to discover. The rhododendrons in the front garden are over 100 years old and are a feature in Spring. The secluded rear garden with its table and benches seats 12 people and is a lovely place for relaxed meals in fine weather.

Beautiful Blackheath

Blackheath has a National Parks Visitors Centre where local information on the area can be found. Details for walks from gentle strolls to more adventurous hikes can be obtained here. There are many walks, waterfalls, lookouts and spectacular scenery to enjoy. Blackheath also features a picturesque golf course, the Rhododendron Gardens and the famous Blackheath Pool in the Memorial Gardens. The Rhododendron Festival is held in early November.

Blackheath has many interesting shops and cafes in a traditional country town streetscape. Antiques, old and new books, jewellery, clothes, galleries, gifts, homewares and more can all be found in the heart of town. Take a short drive out along the Shipley Road to visit the Logan Brae apple orchard for locally grown apples of many varieties, freshly crushed juice and home made treats.

Apart from great coffee at any number of cafes, there is great local shopping for any occasion, including a fabulous butcher, traditional fruit and vegetable store, delicatessens, well stocked supermarkets and two sourdough bakeries. So the choice is yours - shop and cook at home, or try one of the many restaurants. In addition to the popular cafes and pubs, Blackheath has several award-winning restaurants.

There are of course many more things to do. Continue along Hat Hill Road to explore The Wind Eroded Cave and the views from Hat Hill and Pulpit Rock. It is a short drive out to Shipley Plateau, Hargreaves Lookout with spectacular views and down to the Megalong Valley and Mount Blackheath where the hang gliders launch themselves off the cliffs! A drive down to Megalong Valley leads you to the famous tea rooms with unsurpassed devonshire teas. There are also many local galleries featuring the work of local artists. It is an easy drive to the town of Lithgow, Mt Tomah Botanical Gardens or Jenolan Caves.
