Property description

A stunning and spacious conversion, in a small hamlet amongst stunning countryside. Russet Oast is an attached Grade II Listed converted oast house of impressive proportions. Converted in 2015, the current owners have further enhanced the property and it is presented to a high standard with stylish decor.
The conversion has retained much of the period character, with exposed timbers and brick walls, the kiln doors and hop press; these are complemented by oak doors, an oak staircase, and original floorboards. Modern conveniences include CAT 6 cabling, and underfloor heating beneath the limestone ground floor.

The accommodation is arranged over three floors, with the front door opening to the superb dining hall, a large room of great character. This leads to the well-appointed kitchen with quartz work surfaces. The sitting room has French windows to the garden.

The first floor has a wonderful second sitting room, three bedrooms and three bathrooms (two of which are en-suite). There are good views from many windows.

Two separate staircases lead to the second floor bedrooms, one with a bathroom and the other, currently used as an office, with plumbing for a bathroom if required.

The property is located in sought after rural hamlet of Shottenden, part of the well serviced village of Chilham. The village provides local amenities including a GP surgery, post office, primary school and public houses. The cathedral city of Canterbury offers a comprehensive range of educational, leisure and shopping facilities. Schooling is well catered for in both the state and private sectors.

There are excellent road and rail communications in the area with the A2/M2 (4 miles); the M20 can be joined at Ashford. Trains from Faversham to London take from approximately 70 minutes and from Canterbury West just under an hour.

Ashford International station offers a 36 minute High Speed journey time to London St Pancras as well as Eurostar services; the Channel Tunnel terminal at Folkestone (24 miles) offers shuttle services to the Continent.

Russet Oast is approached over a driveway shared with the neighbouring farmhouse and another converted oast, which leads to a fenced gravelled drive with a parking and turning area and space for several cars. There is an oversize garage and an area of lawn.

To the rear and adjoining the property, there is a paved terrace with steps to the lawn. This has been part post and rail enclosed and is fully fenced.
