Full description

A stunningly beautiful, detached 5-bedroom oast house enjoying an idyllic country setting and within the Cranbrook School catchment area. Converted in 1998 by conscientious tradesmen who reclaimed and reused all the original oak, this is a truly wonderful home which must be seen to fully appreciate its character and charm.

All the farm's outbuildings underwent a tasteful conversion in 1998, creating four unique residential dwellings all accessed via a private lane off Nineveh Lane. Great Nineveh Oast owns the access lane, with the neighbouring properties having right of way. Each property contributes towards a management fund covering the maintenance of the lane which is administered by the owners of the oast.

Great Nineveh Oast is under 3 miles from the bustling market town of Cranbrook which offers comprehensive shopping, sport and leisure facilities. Staplehurst, with plentiful parking and a regular train service to Central London, is approximately 9 miles to the north and the thriving town of Tenterden is only 7 miles distant. The property is within the Cranbrook Grammar School catchment area and is also within easy reach of the many excellent independent schools in the locality including St Ronan's, Dulwich Preparatory School and Marlborough House. The property offers easy access to the lovely south coast beaches and interesting historical towns like Rye, Tunbridge Wells, Battle and Hastings, and excellent countryside attractions, including Bedgebury National Pinetum, Bewl Water reservoir and historical houses and gardens.

From our offices on The Pantiles in Tunbridge Wells, follow the signs to the A21 and head south. At a large roundabout, take the A262 towards Goudhurst and continue through the village. Turn right onto Glassenbury Road and follow this road right to the t-junction at the end. Turn left onto Hartley Road, and then almost immediately right into Swattenden Lane. Continue on this lane, turning right at the signpost marked Nineveh. Continue along Nineveh Lane until you see a sign on your left for Great Nineveh, private lane. Continue to the top of this lane and the oast house is on your left hand side.
