Full description

Tenure: Freehold

An extremely pretty, attached oast conversion, set within beautiful gardens and backing onto farmland, in this sought after village just 8 miles from the cathedral city of Canterbury.

The Old Oast dates back to the early 1900’s, however it has been sympathetically renovated in recent years and now offers generous and particularly well appointed accommodation, spread over three floors.

The front door opens into a central entrance hallway, with pretty terracotta floor tiles which run throughout much of the ground floor. To the front of the oast, there is a large cloakroom (also plumbed for a shower as well) and a pleasant open plan kitchen/dining room.

The kitchen has been fitted with a good range of wall and floor units, set around rich, granite work surfaces and a range of integrated appliances. The kitchen is complemented by a large utility room, with many more wall and floor units set around wood block work surfaces and a Belfast sink.

The sitting room is to the rear of the oast and is a particularly well proportioned room with exposed beams and brickwork and a large inglenook fireplace, with a wood burning stove effect gas fire. One set of French doors open onto the patio area, whilst a second set of French doors open into a superb, triple aspect garden room. This has a vaulted ceiling, oak flooring and lovely views over farmland.

An elegant staircase with understairs storage rises to the first floor and a central landing. To the front of the property there are two, comfortable single bedrooms (both with built in wardrobes), whilst to the rear there is a large master bedroom with far reaching views and a well appointed, traditionally styled en suite with wood panelling, a marble topped sink, a Jacuzzi bath and further storage.

On the second floor, there are two further bedrooms, both generous double rooms with built in storage and access to the loft and one of which with an equally well appointed en suite shower room.

OUTSIDE:

The Old Oast is set well back from the road, behind a mature and well established front garden, which is enclosed by a low level brick wall. A set of twin five bar gates open onto a large, gravelled driveway which provides parking for numerous vehicles.

The rear garden measures approx. 108 ft and is mainly laid to lawn with a variety of mature trees and shrubs, a sandstone patio area and a large timber shed. The rear garden backs directly onto farmland and enjoys spectacular and uninterrupted views across the surrounding countryside.

SITUATION:

The Old Oast is set back from The Street in the charming village of Preston. Preston is home to The Church of St. Mildred, The Half Moon and Seven Stars public house, a village shop, a butchers and a primary school. Preston is surrounded by some beautiful countryside which is ideal for walking, cycling and riding, whilst the nearby Stodmarsh Nature Reserve is home to many species of migrating birds and wildlife.

Situated close by is the historic market town of Sandwich which is a bustling little town and one of the Cinque Ports. It has many independent shops and restaurants, a well regarded grammar school and a lovely quay.

The village of Wingham which is approximately two miles away and also offers a wider range of shops and amenities including a doctor’s surgery and a dentist.

There is a regular bus route between Sandwich, Wingham and Canterbury and the A2 can be accessed via the nearby villages of Barham and Bekesbourne.

The bustling cathedral city of Canterbury is just eight miles away and this offers an excellent range of shopping, leisure and educational amenities, including both state and private schools and three universities. It has two hospitals and two mainline railway stations (one with a high speed rail link which reaches London St. Pancras in just under an hour), along with a vibrant high street offering a fine selection of high street brands, independent boutique style shops and a wide range of pubs and restaurants serving a host of international cuisines.

The Channel Tunnel terminal at Folkestone (17 miles) provides a regular shuttle service to the Continent, whilst the Port of Dover (19 miles) also provides regular ferry crossings to the Continent.
