A wonderfully situated and well presented five bedroom oast house with south facing gardens.


Enjoying a wonderful semi-rural setting down a country lane, The Oast is an attractive oast and barn conversion dating from circa 1850 and converted in 2001 with southerly facing gardens and beautiful views.

Situated within Cranbrook School catchment area, this lovely five bedroom family home provides superbly presented accommodation arranged over two floors and having been meticulously renovated and reconfigured by the current owners it has been finished to a high specification throughout.

The stylish accommodation comprises a light and airy entrance hall, off which is the dual aspect roundel sitting room with log burner, a versatile family room with door to the side, a WC and a study with vaulted ceiling and fitted book shelving.

A particular feature is the impressive bespoke fitted kitchen/breakfast room with bi-fold doors that open from the dining area out to the southerly facing terrace. The kitchen features an abundance of exposed beams, with an excellent range of cupboards, a central island and integral appliances including a Rangemaster cooker, dishwasher, wine cooler and there is space for a fridge/freezer. Off the kitchen is a utility room with further cupboards and space for white goods.

On the first floor there are five beautifully presented bedrooms, the majority enjoying views over either fields to the north or the gardens to the rear. The main bedroom, located in the roundel, is of excellent proportions benefitting from a range of fitted wardrobes and a stylishly appointed en suite shower room with traditional style Savoy white vanity unit. There is a further family bathroom fitted with white sanitary ware, both bathrooms feature underfloor heating.

The Oast is approached via a gravel driveway with parking for several cars and access to the double garage. The gardens amount to just over 0.5 of an acre and include level lawns lying predominantly to the south and east of the property as well as a terrace that wraps around the property and enjoys the wonderful views over the adjoining fields.


The Oast is situated about 2 miles south of the village of Headcorn where there is a range of local shops for everyday needs including Sainsbury’s supermarket, general stores, post office, café and public house.

Predictions can vary significantly from the coverage you may actually experience as a result of local factors (especially terrain). Ofcom has tested the actual coverage provided in various locations around the UK to help ensure that these predictions are reasonable. The values shown against a property can be broken down as follows:

    Clear: No bars, no signal predicted

    Green: Three bars, likely to have good coverage and receive a data rate to support basic web services
