A striking, semi-detached Oast conversion and sizeable family home found in this convenient location well placed for surrounding villages and towns.
Coming to the market after nearly three decades in the same ownership, Manor Oast is a substantial family home, forming one half of this imposing Grade II Listed double roundel Oast conversion. Some 126 years old and converted in 1994, Manor Oast sits within a hamlet of attractive converted farm buildings historically serving Badsell Manor and is well placed to take advantage of nearby orchards, woodland and countryside walking.
The very spacious layout of some 3700 sq ft combines much character, such as the exposed beams and high ceilings, with a high standard of presentation and a good balance of accommodation that can be configured to suit individual needs, with generous sized rooms that provide ample room for furniture and good storage.
Arranged over three floors, the Oast provides up to five bedrooms, with four bedrooms and three well-appointed bathrooms on the first floor and a further bedroom on the second floor which is currently used as a large home office/gym/games room.
The ground floor is much suited to family life, with a dining room, sitting room and study that all overlook and open onto the terraces and gardens beyond. The very impressive and stylish kitchen/breakfast room enjoys attractive bespoke cabinetry providing good storage in addition to a central island with breakfast bar with striking worktops, providing further space for preparation and more informal dining. There are some integrated appliances and space for a range-style cooker. A utility room, w.c. and access to the integral garage completes the ground floor.
Outside: The large, established and well-screened gardens provide expanses of level lawn, interspersed with long established flower beds, specimen planting and different entertaining terraces, ideal for alfresco dining and following the sunshine. Manor Oast is approached via a private driveway with ample space for a number of vehicles, gated access to the gardens and access to the integral garage (of a further 262 sq ft).

The accommodation on offer at Manor Oast is terrific; this is a vast, characterful and loved family home, which has been well cared for. The oast still offers plenty of potential for a new family to make their mark and is an ideal choice for those needing plenty of space both inside and out!Natasha SelbieProperty agent
