This stunning converted oast house presents a breathtaking blend of old and new, with original features combining contemporary style and modern luxuries, all in a beautiful and peaceful rural location.
Located in the rural village of Sandhurst in Kent, the property is situated on farmland and surrounded by open fields. This idyllic village has a farm shop and a tearoom which was voted “Kent Tearoom of the Year” in 2014. Within a 20 minute drive is the elegant town of Royal Tunbridge Wells, with its beautiful parade of shops, the Pantiles. The medieval market town of Rye is also within a 20 minute drive and is a lovely place to spend a day with its independent shops and large choice of restaurants, pubs and bars.
This property is in a tranquil setting down a long dirt track, and forms part of a beautiful 16th century Kentish oast house. On the ground floor a wooden barn door opens up to a drying room, with washing machine and extra fridge/freezer. An outside staircase leads to the front door of the property, which opens into a vast open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner, with a spacious farmhouse-style feel to it. In the centre of the room is a wooden dining table and beyond that, running the length of the room is the country-house style kitchen, with butler sink, electric oven and hobs, microwave, fridge and dishwasher. The focal point of this area is a huge Welsh dresser, adding to the rustic, shabby-chic feel. The sitting area of the room is cosy and inviting, with large sofa, armchairs and a wooden chest. There is a TV and CD player. The master bedroom has a magnificent four-poster bed and chandelier, and is located in one of the oast’s roundels, making it an extra special place to stay. A sumptuous bathroom has a stunning roll top bath and a book case, making a real sanctuary. A second roundel is home to a wet room with large overhead shower head. Next to this is the second bedroom which is located in the third roundel with twin beds. Additional sleeping is available by arrangement in the eaves - it has limited headroom and is only accessible by ladder, making it not suitable for children under the age of 8.
Outside is a magical outdoors space with a painted wooden table beneath the branches of a large tree. There is also a zip-line and tree house (children must be supervised). Walking across the fields, you will come across the two friendly resident donkeys.
