Crowning glory – an oast with five roundels

    Kings Oast

    Kings Oast is an enormous converted oast and barn boasting five roundels, and offers impressive and flexible accommodation over three floors.

    Internally, character features include thumb latch doors, exposed ceiling timbers, wooden flooring, vaulted ceilings, open fireplaces and a very striking imperial staircase.

    There is also a detached pool house with a heated swimming pool and gym, and the delightful landscaped gardens, orchard and paddock provide a pretty backdrop.

    On entering the property, a covered porch with double doors leads to the vaulted reception hall.

    The principal reception rooms offer generous areas for formal entertaining and comprise a drawing room with a wood-burning stove, a sitting room and an imposing dining room with a double-height vaulted ceiling in the larger roundel.

    A games room and breakfast room lend themselves to more informal living and are both located in roundels, with stable doors to the rear garden.

    The study is also within a roundel and is fitted with a range of bookshelves.

    The kitchen is fitted with bespoke units by Harvey Jones, and in addition to the appliances has a very useful larder cupboard, a matching island unit and granite work surfaces.

    The first floor galleried landing has a Juliet balcony to the rear.

    There are six well-proportioned bedrooms with en suite bath/shower rooms – four of which are located in roundels and two within the barn.

    The imperial staircase continues to the second floor, where there is a generous galleried landing with exposed rafters and a seating area with a Juliet balcony to the rear.

    The roomy master suite also has exposed rafters, built-in wardrobes, a Juliet balcony and access to an attic store. The dressing room is in a roundel with fitted hanging rails, and the en suite bathroom, also round, features a claw and ball roll top bath.

    There are two further bedrooms on this floor, both within roundels and served by en-suite facilities.

    Finally, in the larger roundel, there is a cinema room with a part-vaulted ceiling which is currently being used as an occasional bedroom and is served by an adjoining wet room.

    The house is approached via a pair of electric gates over a gravel drive culminating in a parking area and garaging which comprises a garage, gardeners WC, workshop, implement store and further storeroom.

    The detached pool complex has an indoor heated swimming pool, a hot tub, a gym area, a shower, a WC and a changing room, together with a sauna.

    The landscaped gardens have many varieties of trees and shrubs, with the rear garden being part wall-enclosed with an attractive timber arbour adorned with a variety of established climbing plants.

    There is an orchard enclosed by a fence and an adjacent paddock. The gardens and grounds provide a high degree of privacy and in total amount to about 2.44 acres.
