Unusual American-style square oast

    Hertsfield Oast

    Kent is renowned for it’s fabulous converted oast houses, but very few are of the American style, and their rectangular shape offers the architect a more practical layout for most family needs.

    No 2 Hertsfield Oast is the middle section of this appealing conversion and incorporates some lovely original features, including high ceilings and exposed beams.

    In addition, the property offers the buyer a good size, south-facing rear garden plus plenty of parking.

    The rear of the property looks out over orchards and farmland, while the front enjoys a wonderful and uninterrupted view of a large duck pond.

    Situated at the end of a private drive leading to Hertsfield Farm, and lying almost midway between the villages of Marden and Staplehurst, it is also just six miles from the county town of Maidstone.

    Each of these localities have an excellent selection of amenities with shops, schools and medical centres, plus all three have mainline railway stations with excellent commuter services to London and the coast.

    So the location of the oast offers the best of both worlds, and this charming rural community is surrounded by farmland and boasts several fine buildings of architectural and historical interest.

    The substantial accommodation includes a large L-shaped room with oak flooring and a contemporary gas fire, an impressive kitchen/dining room with a range of high gloss red laminate base and floor-to-ceiling units, a utility room and a cloakroom.

    On the first floor, there is a master bedroom with en suite and walk-in wardrobe, along with three further bedrooms and a shower room.

    One more level up leads to another bedroom, a bathroom and useful eaves storage.

    Outside, the mature garden is approximately 30 metres in size. This is mainly laid to lawn with established hedges for seclusion.

    There are also a variety of specimen trees and flowering shrubs for all year round colour, along with a raised deck for entertaining and gravel area for parking.
