About this property

  • The Oast is a most attractive four bedroom period conversion with castellated roundel and part walled gardens, beautifully situated in a rural, yet not isolated position in Ingleden Park, a former country estate.

    The property is understood to originate from the mid 19th century and lies about 2.3 miles to the north east of the popular town of Tenterden with its excellent range of shopping facilities and about 11 miles from Ashford, which has a high speed train service to London St Pancras in about 37 minutes and extensive shopping and leisure facilities.

    The well presented family accommodation features a hall with multi paned glazed doors opening through to a central hall. Reception rooms include a roundel sitting room with Nordpeis wood burning stove and French doors to the garden, a formal dining room and a south facing garden room with two sets of French doors to the terrace and garden.

    The farmhouse-style kitchen/breakfast room of excellent proportions, has an extensive range of pine cupboards, electric (Economy 7) Aga, integral dishwasher, fridge and freezer. Off the kitchen there is a utility room with two concealed electric hobs and space for various white goods.

    On the first floor there are four bedrooms, together with a family bathroom and separate shower room, with white sanitary ware. All of the bedrooms benefit from fitted cupboards and there is also a boarded loft. Bedrooms one and two have wonderful views over the adjoining farmland.

    The Oast has a right of access over a long, shared drive. Electric double gates open to the private gravel drive with parking area to the front of the house and the double garage with oak doors.

    The delightful part walled gardens lie to the rear of the house, where the elevations are enhanced by a mature wisteria. With mixed hedging to several boundaries, the professionally landscaped gardens have level lawns interspersed with various specimen trees, including Robinia, a plum tree and maple. Deep borders are planted to give year round colour and interest. There is a gazebo which has delightful views over the adjoining fields. A garden shed is well screened by shrubs and trees.
