A charming unlisted twin oast house with about 2.3 acres of beautiful gardens, grounds and reservoir.


Swan Oast is a unique twin oast house believed to date from the late 19th century with later additions. The current owners have made significant changes to the gardens and grounds, creating a magnificent Japanese style garden and as a result, it was part of the National Garden Scheme (NGS). This well presented three bedroom family home is situated on the outskirts of the village of Staplehurst, whilst being within close proximity to local amenities.

Reception rooms feature beautiful oak flooring and comprise a roundel sitting room with double wood burner and study area, a formal dining room with bi-fold doors which lead to the substantial orangery with further bi-fold doors which lead to the terrace and gardens, ideal for entertaining. A cloakroom concludes the ground floor accommodation.

The bespoke fitted kitchen by Potts kitchens is equipped with a range of oak cupboards, complimented by granite work surfaces. Appliances comprise an integral Miele microwave and coffee machine, two Wolf double ovens and an American style fridge/freezer. There is a utility area, fitted to match the kitchen with Miele dishwasher and tumble dryer and a door to the side of the property.

A bifurcated staircase leads to the first floor where there are three bedrooms and two bathrooms, one being en suite. Two bedrooms, situated in each of the roundels, benefit from fitted wardrobes and glorious views of the magnificent gardens, whilst the main bedroom benefits from a stylishly appointed en suite shower room.

Swan Oast is approached via electric gates which open to a driveway with parking for several cars and access to a detached double garage. The surrounding gardens are delightful, they incorporate a paved southerly facing terrace overlooking an outstanding Japanese-style garden.
