Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Boormans Oast was converted and rebuilt in 1949 and subsequently extended over the years to provide flexible accommodation for a large family. You enter through the original roundel oast and into the entrance lobby with exposed spiral staircase. The double aspect sitting room with parquet flooring spans 23" and boasts a stunning wood burning stove which is accessible from the kitchen too. The kitchen/breakfast room is the hub of the home with a large picnic table and double doors leading out onto the rear garden providing an excellent entertaining space all year round. The shaker style kitchen has been redesigned and updated by the current owners with fitted Bosch appliances and ample storage cupboards. There is also a small utility area with a door leading out onto the side garden and w.c.

On the first floor there are six bedrooms in total, however two of those are located at the rear of the property in the self contained annex. The annex has its own private front door, open plan kitchen/living area and shower room - ideal for an older family member or teenagers who just want their own space. In the main part of the house there are three doubles and a single bedroom which is currently being used as a study. There is a family bathroom and separate shower room which could be incorporated to create one large bathroom suite should you wish.

Outside to the front of the property there is a driveway and parking for several cars, you could add a garage subject to planning permission. The wrap around garden to the side of the house is mainly laid to lawn and enjoys a south/west facing sun terrace leading to an established and well screened rear garden with mature trees, area of lawn and patio. On the other side of the house is a boiler room housing the Worcester gas fired boiler. Additionally there is a open fronted log store, garden shed and storage room.

HISTORICAL NOTE. It is understood that Boormans Oast was originally part of a farm where Jane Austen's father, George Austen, resided when he was a teacher at Tonbridge School prior to his move to Hampshire where she was born. 

LOCATION Tonbridge is a vibrant town with a rail station just a short walk away that can get you into central London within approximately 45 minutes, hence the town is extremely popular for commuters. There are many excellent schools for boys and girls of all ages, including comprehensive, grammar and private schooling.The High Street offers views of its famous castle as well as very good shopping facilities including a Waitrose, and some well regarded restaurants and public houses. There is also easy access to the A21 and M25 motorways for access to London or the coast via car. For the kids there is the ever popular Jump In Trampoline Arena and Wear 'Em Out Play Centre. For the adults a local favourite of ours is the Turkish Restaurant called Havet which offers fine Cypriot dining.
