Addington and the surrounding areas are steeped in history going back many centuries and there are a number of historic houses here. One such house, found in a pretty location in the heart of the village, is Oast Farm. This double roundel Oast house holds much character and history of its own, dating back we understand to 1786.
As you approach the home via its long driveway your gaze will immediately be drawn to the grounds it sits in and the views over the local countryside that this home and gardens enjoy. If you are looking for a countryside setting and rural position, you could not ask for better. The location does offer convenience as well, having local shops at West Malling only 2 miles away. The local Offham Primary school has an outstanding Ofsted report and is around a mile away. If you wish to connect to train links to London you have a choice of either West Malling or Borough Green stations that are 3 and 4 miles away respectively. Once your busy week has finished you can then explore the many bridle ways and footpaths that surround the village or enjoy a round of golf at the popular West Malling golf club which is just down the road. To relax on a Sunday what better way than to walk the short distance to the Angel Pub in the village which is renowned for good food and welcoming atmosphere.
The current owners have transformed this property into the wonderful home it is today. Blending modern contemporary features into an old house is an art to do well but as you look around and take in the charm and character you cannot help be impressed with the level of quality and attention to detail that has been created here.
The home not only has beauty but is functional too. Entertaining family and friends will be a delight. In the summer months enjoy Al Fresco dining on the raised decked patio the front of the home. In the colder months let your guests warm themselves in front of the living room’s stunning fireplace whilst you prepare the dining room in the roundel part of the Oast. There are a total of 4 reception rooms downstairs, a wonderful Kitchen/Breakfast room will probably be the hub of the home and contains the all-important Aga oven to complete the dream of a country house Kitchen. Being open to the Utility area allows the kitchen to be uncluttered and offer plenty of work top space. The downstairs W.C was formerly a Shower room and could easily be made into one again with a new shower enclosure being fitted. The lounge is stunning housing a wealth of beams and the beautiful fireplace. The other roundel has been created into a Family room but could have a multitude of uses.
If to be a family home there is plenty of space to grow into and having 4 large bedrooms, every member of the family should be happy with their choice. Bespoke wardrobes have been fitted into the 2 roundel bedrooms which are both generous double rooms. The sumptuous Family bathroom offers a large shower, a stand alone bath along with his and her sinks. The Master bedroom is amazing and will offer parents their own private sanctuary in a busy house. Being l-shape there is a dressing area that holds plenty of wardrobes. The first part of the En-suite is also a dressing/drying area with his and her sinks. Through to the second part of the En-suite is where the large shower and W.C can be found. The landing is even worthy of mentioning as the current owners have fashioned it into a study area with work space and storage, ideal if the children need their own area for homework.
Wonderful gardens surround the home and total 1.25 acres approximately. There are a wealth of flowers and shrubs along with large areas of lawn. The majority is to the front of the home and has been used formerly as a paddock for horses. Within the grounds there is a Summerhouse which is used as a studio. The garage is larger than average being an l-shape and has space for a car and a ride-on lawn mower. Attached to the garage is the games room. This has a multitude of uses and having an adjoining Kitchen and W.C along with storage could be converted into an annex providing the necessary permissions are obtained. If not then it would also make an ideal teenagers snug to entertain friends.
