Stunning Grade II listed 17th Century oast barn conversion set in an idyllic semi-rural location with excellent communication links

Lovingly renovated to an exceptional standard by the current owners, this property must be viewed to be fully appreciated.

"We are both passionate about interior design and were drawn to the idea of converting the barn because of the fantastic opportunity it gave us for creating a contemporary interior in a period setting.?

The attention to detail is clear, as is the desire to make this wonderful old building into a fantastic family home. From the designer Oak and glass staircase leading up to the mezzanine gallery, which overlooks the impressive vaulted drawing room, to the wonderful marble flooring that was reclaimed from The Royal Museum of Edinburgh.

"Living in this Oast barn makes us feels as if we are on a health retreat holiday.  It is a light, airy and tranquil space.  The huge vaulted living area opens out onto the outside, making it perfect for parties."

The cleverly redesigned interior makes for flexible and functional modern living with 5 bedrooms, 4 reception rooms, 3 bathrooms (all with wonderfully individual suites) and a superb bespoke kitchen.  The design embraces the lines of the original structure leading to some interesting, character spaces which all add to the charm of this superb home.

"The property sits in a level plot of around half an acre and the outside space is versatile with attractive gardens encompassing different themes, we overlook a large pond which attracts wildlife, the terrace is a secluded sun trap and has the benefit of a summer house and there is an open area to the rear enjoying beautiful views over the surrounding countryside."

There is ample parking on the driveway and the opportunity, if desired, to convert the old piggery at the rear of the property into garaging, a gym or a home office STPP.  To the rear of the piggery there is a further small field with a post and rail fence.

Location: The property is set on Hilders Lane on the outskirts of Edenbridge.  This delightful small town lies in the district of Sevenoaks close to Kent's border with Surrey, it has excellent road and rail links and is surrounded by beautiful open countryside.. Edenbridge enjoys a wealth of amenities including a Waitrose, restaurants and coffee shops.  The area enjoys a wealth of schooling options including, Hazlewood, Sevenoaks, and Tonbridge schools. There are also 6 grammar schools in Tonbridge and Tunbridge Wells.  For commuting into London there are direct train links into London Bridge in less than 45 minutes from Edenbridge Town and Hurst Green station on the Victoria line is approximately 7 minutes away.  

The Oast barn is set in a lovely quiet location and directly from the house there are scenic walks and cycle rides to places of interest amongst them Chartwell and Hever Castle.  There are also many character country pubs to stop for a bite to eat along the way.
