A spectacular Grade II listed oast conversion providing comprehensive accommodation of elegant proportions whilst retaining the interest and atmosphere of the original building. The property is beautifully presented throughout having undergone extensive modernisation and refurbishment works over recent years. Architectural features include the three principle kilns which incorporate much of the living and bedroom accommodation and the prominent front gable housing the former hoist gear. The property commands fine views to the front and rear over the neighbouring farmland and countryside. Internally the property is both practical and interesting with large rooms providing extensive and versatile accommodation. On the ground floor the two principal reception rooms and the kitchen are set within the former circular kilns, there is also a family room, utility room and workshop plus direct access to the integral garage. On the first floor are six bedrooms, three with ensuite facilities, plus the family bathroom.

The garden extends to the rear of the house, facing south west, and is principally laid to lawn with inset mature trees. Directly to the rear of the house is a paved sun terrace with raised flower bed borders.
