There are lots of reasons to be drawn to this oast conversion and two instantly stand out. We all know that the most important thing about property is location and this home really grabs your attention because of it. The second great reason to love this place is that, especially for a converted working building, there is a surprising degree of separation from the neighbouring buildings. It is somewhere that has a very special, a select and a private feel to it. Drive along the country lane that leads to where the oast is and you won't see it from the road. Pull up to the electrically operated entrance gate and all you'll see is a driveway leading into the distance. Pass the gate and you will leave the weight of the world behind as you seem to head on an adventure into rural Kent. There is a sense of exciting discovery each time we approach this home. You seem to happen upon it by chance, turn a corner and there it is tucked away out of sight. Neighbours are far enough away that it seems surprising this was once a working farm. It's when you get out of the car and see what is on the other side of the oast that really melts your heart for this is a setting that is hard to compare. Looking out over farmland bounded by woods and trees this home has a sense of peace and quiet that we rarely find. It isn't a rolling view over valleys, instead it is more personal, private and comforting. Standing here you may feel you just want to grab a chair, a good book and just sit, relax and unwind as the sun warms your face, sheep chew their way across the fields and the birds twitter in the background.
Oast houses were designed as working buildings and conversions provide unique accommodation, each has individual character and as this is a property that has been extended too it manages to blend modern practicality with a touch of quirkiness. Ceiling heights vary throughout, the roundel rooms, one on each floor, are always fun and exciting and, whilst there is a surprisingly conventional layout in many ways, there are nooks and crannies that will delight kids and intrigue adults.
It is a very practical home to live in, a lovely kitchen, rectangular and practical is complemented by a great utility room. The sitting room has that all important fireplace and opens into a super conservatory with underfloor heating, a room that connects you to that views across the neighbouring farm fields. There is a separate office in the grounds, again with lots of glass to keep you involved with that view. It is insulated, has wifi, has its own tv aerial, and is therefore ready as a garden office/home working office/all year round studio/gym. Parking should never be an issue with so much space for vehicles and a block of garages including the 'Laundry Room' which is another great insulated room with WC and shower.
You will find this is a wonderful home to escape to, one that never makes you feel isolated though. It has a sense of calm that envelops you yet it is a home that encourages you to have fun, great for entertaining, for good times with the family and for those who work from home it is a setting that is sure to inspire.
