Northdown Oast forms part of a six roundel oast and Kentish ragstone barn set within the orchards of Amsbury Farm. It was converted back in 2002 into four freehold properties each set over 3 floors and each with one a half roundels each. The house is mainly constructed of brick and stone with areas of weatherboarding, timber framed double glazing and a tile & slate roof.
The property comprises four bedrooms, four bathrooms, two lounge/diners, two kitchens, a family bathroom, utility room, garden, double garage and allocated parking.
Internally the property is beautifully presented throughout and brimming with character. Many of the original features have been preserved including stripped wood floors and exposed wall and ceiling timbers with ironwork.
The ground floor is set out as a complete annex. The annex bedroom is set in the roundel and measures 18ft 5 in diameter with doors into the living space as well as the main hall. The annex comes complete with its own kitchen which opens out into the lounge and dining areas complete with exposed beams and wooden framework for the building.
The first floor provides living space for the main dwelling. A generous sized lounge/diner is complimented by a sizable kitchen arranged in a circular fashion within the roundel. The kitchen is complimented by a spacious utility room which in turn leads to a WC.
The second floor offers living space to the main dwelling. Three spacious bedrooms all with ensuites, the master, again, makes good use of the roundel with a generously sized ensuite offered within the half roundel adjacent.
The property is set within the grounds of a fruit farm with hundreds of acres fields and orchards as far as the eye can see. It benefits from being located on the edge of the sought after village of Hunton with its local amenities and Church of England primary school.
Further local amenities are available in Coxheath which is about 1 mile to the north or Marden 4 miles to the south.
The nearest train station is Paddock Wood which offers passage to Charing Cross/Cannon Street in approx. 45 minutes; the same as Marden on the same line.
The garden lies to the front of the property and open to the fields it is mainly laid to lawn with a grass bank leading up to the orchards and there is also a small sitting area towards the house with a table and chairs.
In terms of parking as well as ample parking for at least two cars there is a double garage, half of which has been converted to a gym.
Opportunities to purchase oast houses such as this are rare and early viewing is strongly advised.
