Canterbury Converted Oasthouse For Sale
Oast houses were used to dry hops (used for brewing). The green hops were spread out on drying floors within the kiln and hot air from a wood or charcoal fire at the bottom of the kiln passed through. The distinctive cowls at the top of the oast towers controlled the airflow and ensured that a good draught was created to keep the fires going. They are a traditional part of the landscape in the south of England particularly in the counties of Kent, East Sussex and West Sussex.

Converted in 2004 to a very high specification, this seven bedroom oast house has a wealth of exposed brick and beams.

It is set in 2.5 acres of land with fenced gardens and a paddock with road access. A patio leads to the 32 ' x 16' heated outside swimming pool with summer house with WC, changing room and store room.

For the car enthusiast there's garaging for five cars, with a one bedroom annexe above.

The property is ideally located between Canterbury and Ashford and is set in an elevated position with far reaching views across the Downs.

A dream property for a discerning buyer.
