Stretch out in Downs oast­house

Kentish Gazette Canterbury & District - East Kent Property - - HOMESNEWS -

An old hop press is part of the pack­age at a con­verted oast­house for sale high on Kent’s North Downs.

Rus­set Oast, at Shot­ten­den, near Can­ter­bury is on the market with Hum­berts, with a guide price of £795,000.

The semi-de­tached house has been beau­ti­fully re­fur­bished by the cur­rent own­ers, and it is now pre­sented in an im­mac­u­late con­di­tion.

The five-bed­room Grade II listed home is ar­ranged over three floors, and there is a large in­te­gral garage.

On the ground floor are two re­cep­tion rooms and the kitchen/ break­fast room.

On the first floor are two bed­rooms with en suites and a third bed­room and fam­ily bath­room. A re­cep­tion room with the hop press is also on this floor.

On the top floor are two more bed­rooms plus a bath­room.

Rus­set Oast is ac­cessed via a shared grav­elled drive­way, which has been fenced to pro­vide a large park­ing and turn­ing area, along with ac­cess to the large garage and lawn.

At the back, there is a paved area with steps on to an­other area of lawn.

The prop­erty sits on the out­skirts of the semi-ru­ral village of Shot­ten­den in a des­ig­nated Area of Out­stand­ing Nat­u­ral Beauty.

It is well placed for ac­cess to Chilham, with its pic­turesque square, farm shop, pri­mary school, sports cen­tre, pubs and main­line sta­tion.

Martin Jor­dan, of Hum­berts, says the prop­erty of­fers a lot of space and has a great fin­ish.

He says: “The prop­erty is pre­sented to an ex­cep­tion­ally high stan­dard and of­fers the ben­e­fits of mod­ern lux­u­ries with the charm of pe­riod liv­ing.

“Par­tic­u­lar original fea­tures in­clude an­tique pine floor­boards, kiln doors, the hop press and mel­low beams.

“Lux­ury items in­clude Cat­e­gory 6 wiring, un­der­floor heat­ing to lime­stone tiling on the ground floor, solid oak doors on the kitchen cup­boards and quartz work sur­faces, as well as solid oak doors, a be­spoke solid-oak stair­case, and a wa­ter soft­ener sys­tem.

“The cur­rent own­ers have spent a con­sid­er­able time and ef­fort up­grad­ing the prop­erty.

“The build­ing sits along­side a fruit farm and of­fers ex­ten­sive ru­ral views.

“It over­looks an original pe­riod farm­house, and has ru­ral views at the front and back.”
