Full description

Tenure: Freehold

The Oast House is a beautifully presented five bedroom period property in an idyllic edge of village location. The property dates from the 1830s when it was originally used to store and dry the hops that were traditionally grown in the area. In later years it was converted into ancillary accommodation for the country house next door, with the drawing room being used as a ballroom. The property has been beautifully maintained by the current owners and they have extended and updated the house to provide over 4500 sq ft of flexible space. The recently extended kitchen/breakfast/family room is the hub of the home with the AGA at its heart, with bi-fold doors opening onto the terrace and garden. The property has a great deal of character which includes original beams, fireplaces and crittle windows. Modern features include the stylish Neptune kitchen with quartz work surfaces and integrated appliances. The dual aspect drawing room is a particularly grand reception room with full height windows and a sprung dance floor, perfect for entertaining. The
formal dining room and the guest room above are both located in the Oast roundels, with their quirky curved walls creating a talking point. The beamed sitting room features a wood burner and leads to the dining room and the bar/snug.

On the first floor the main bedroom suite has a vaulted ceiling and views of the garden, with potential to create a roof terrace. The roundel bedroom, three further bedrooms and two bathrooms completes the accommodation.

The Oast House is situated in a pretty area close to the picturesque villages of Frensham and Dockenfield, on the Surrey/Hampshire border. Frensham has a village shop with post office, Holly Bush public house, village hall and recreation ground with its cricket and tennis clubs. Dockenfield is a smaller hamlet with a church, village hall, playground and The Bluebell pub. The surrounding countryside is designated as an area of outstanding natural beauty with walking and riding at Frensham Common and sailing at the Great Pond. Farnham offers an excellent choice of pubs and restaurants and an extensive range of shopping and recreational facilities. Excellent nearby schools include St Mary’s infant school, Frensham Heights and Edgeborough. The mainline station is within 4 miles and the A3/M25 provides access to London, its airports and the South Coast.

The Oast House is approached via a gravelled drive with turning and parking for several cars. A barn-style two bay garage (with power and water) has a room with en suite shower above. Adjacent to the garaging is a workshop with power and light. The attractive rear gardens are mainly laid to lawn and are neatly landscaped using a combination of stone built raised flower beds, Indian Sandstone terrace, box hedging framing the beds and planting designed to provide colour and interest throughout the year. A mature Walnut tree provides a stunning focal point to the garden and terrace.
