Stunning Grade II listed oast house in delightful level grounds of 1.68 acres. Originating from the late nineteenth century and Listed Grade II, this characterful house is formed of twin roundels, which in turn form part of an eight roundel former oast complex. Displaying typical external elevations of red brick with a plain tiled roof together with cowls and vanes, the whole building was converted in to four residential units in the 1970s. Number 4 enjoys a wonderfully secluded position and south facing outlook.
Internally the accommodation extends to 2806 sq. ft. and is arranged over three floors. The layout complements the character of the roundels very well indeed incorporating some original detailing including some exposed oak beams together with character added by the use of oak latch doors, wooden floors and a brick fireplace with wood burning stove in the sitting room. The majority of the rooms throughout the house enjoy spectacular views of the garden and countryside.
The accommodation is such that it is adaptable to which ever size of family occupies the space and so would appeal to a variety of owners. There are two principal reception rooms on the ground floor with a further flexible space on the wide first floor landing, ideal for a first floor playroom or relaxation area such as a TV room or games room. This area has a large picture window so the views of the garden and orchards beyond can be best enjoyed. The kitchen/breakfast room on the ground floor has been fitted by specialist craftsmen skilled in designing cabinetry to fit roundels and features an attractive stable door out to the garden.
On the upper two levels there are five /six bedrooms, all of good size, and two family bathrooms. The dual aspect master bedroom is in one of the roundels and has great character with a double height ceiling and a mezzanine level which is perfect as a relaxation / study area and also has existing plumbing if someone wanted to create an en-suite. Of the remaining bedrooms, one is currently used as a study and the potential sixth bedroom is currently used as a snug but could equally be a study area or dressing room. This room can be accessed from one of the first floor bedrooms via a spiral staircase and also through a spacious bedroom on the second floor.
