Tenure: Freehold


This property is offered at a reduced price for people aged over 60 through Homewise’s Home for Life Plan. Through the Home for Life Plan, anyone aged over sixty can purchase a lifetime lease on this property which discounts the price from its full market value. The size of the discount you are entitled to depends on your age, personal circumstances and property criteria and could be anywhere between 8.5% and 59% from the property’s full market value. The above price is for guidance only. It is based on our average discount and would be the estimated price payable by a 69-year-old single male. As such, the price you would pay could be higher or lower than this figure.

For more information or a personalised quote, just give us a call. Alternatively, if you are under 60 or would like to purchase this property without a Home for Life Plan at its full market price of £650,000, please contact Ward & Partners.


The village of Brook lies nestled at the foot of the Downs to the east of Ashford. Although a small village it’s incredibly popular with its own pub and school. The neighbouring village of Wye is a few miles away and has its own station as well as a large array of shops and other facilities.

Oast Houses encapsulate the essence of Kentish life but these days most of them have either been demolished or, like this stunning example, converted into homes.

The current owners moved in 30 years ago and have transformed the property into a family home where they brought up their children.

The extension has primarily increased the ground floor and as a result 4 of the 5 bedrooms are on this level, whilst the master bedroom occupies the top of the Oast and has a circular, vaulted ceiling as well as a large dressing area and en-suite.

The base of this property is used as the main dining area and it’s easy to picture the whole family or a group of friends gathered round enjoying each other's company and the lovely character that’s contained within the building. On long winter evenings you can spend your time in front of the log burner warming your toes, whilst in the summer you’ll probably want to be out in the garden relaxing in the sun and enjoying the views over the neighbouring farmland to the Downs beyond.

What the Owner says:

We moved to Brook over 30 years ago and have never regretted it.

The house has been a fantastic family home for us, but now that the children have all grown up it seems right that we move on, albeit reluctantly.

We will miss our spacious home, the lovely garden, the birdsong, the sunsets and the stars at night.

Brook is a beautiful and friendly, well located, quiet village. We will miss the village camaraderie and the lovely village pub.
