The Oast, Stuppington Lane, Canterbury
A magnificent attached period oast conversion, situated in an enviable location, within easy reach of Canterbury's many amenities, yet in a rural setting surrounded by some truly outstanding countryside.
The Oast was converted to a high standard in 2012 and now offers extremely generously proportioned and beautifully appointed accommodation, with a versatile layout over three floors. The Oast also commands an elevated position, which affords spectacular views over rolling farmland and the surrounding countryside.
The front door opens into an entrance hall, with a well appointed cloakroom and an oak staircase to the first floor with an understairs utility area. Sleek, polished porcelain flooring extends from the entrance hall into a beautifully appointed kitchen/breakfast room. This has been fitted with an excellent range of contemporary wall and floor units, set around corian work surfaces and a range of integrated appliances.
From here, a set of glazed double doors open into an impressive reception room, with original exposed beams, oak flooring, exposed brickwork and splendid views over countryside to the front of the oast.
On the first floor, a spacious landing leads to a well appointed family bathroom and two large double bedrooms, each with a stylish and contemporary en-suite. One of the en-suites is a bathroom, one is a shower room, whilst both have contemporary white suites and are finished with attractive stone effect ceramic tiling.
The master bedroom is to the front of the oast and enjoys even more spectacular views over countryside than the reception room below.
Another oak staircase rises to an open office area on the second floor and two further double bedrooms.
The property is approached via a driveway which runs along the side of The Oast and is shared with the two other residents of the oast. This leads to a parking area for two cars and a double garage with an up and over door and power connected to it.
From here, a secure gate opens into a well established and thoughtfully planted garden. This measures approximately 57 ft and is mainly laid to lawn, with colourful and well stocked flowerbeds and a paved patio area adjacent to The Oast.
The Oast enjoys the best of both worlds, as it sits within easy reach of south Canterbury, with its many excellent schools, Kent & Canterbury Hospital and Canterbury East Station, yet is surrounded by beautiful countryside, with lovely walks right on its doorstep.
The cathedral city of Canterbury is a vibrant and cosmopolitan city, with a thriving city centre offering a wide array of High Street brands alongside a diverse mix of independent retailers, cafes and international restaurants. The city also offers a fine selection of sporting, leisure and recreational amenities, including the refurbished Marlowe Theatre.
Canterbury has an excellent choice of educational amenities, ranging from Grammar schools to well regarded private schools and three universities. Canterbury offers a regular rail service to London Victoria, Charing Cross and Cannon Street and the high speed rail link connects with London's St Pancras from Canterbury West station in just under one hour.
Ashford International station and the Channel Tunnel at Folkestone are both about 14 miles away and provide regular Eurostar and shuttle services to the continent, whilst the A2/M2 motorway provides good access to both London and the Channel port of Dover.
The surrounding countryside is predominantly farmland and is ideal for those who enjoy outdoor pursuits, such as walking and horse riding, whilst the nearby Stodmarsh Nature Reserve offers excellent bird watching. There are also numerous pretty villages nearby with typical village pubs to visit, such as Wingham, Littlebourne, Ickham and Wickhambreaux, giving you the ideal balance between city and country living.
