Broomhill Oast, Hansletts Lane, Ospringe
Occupying the right hand half of a pair of handsome, square kiln oast houses, Broomhill Oast offers a tranquil mix of modern and traditional decor within a spacious and versatile dwelling. Set within beautiful, established, landscaped gardens, with a blocked paved drive to a detached double garage with loft space, this four bedroom property also has a two acre paddock with a range of fruit and ornamental trees.
The attractive facade of the building features a Kent peg tile roof, barn style weatherboarded first floor with the oast separated from its neighbour by the original cooling floor door and brickwork ground floor.
The traditional dark solid wood, vertically panelled front door opens into a plushly carpeted entrance hallway, with the stairs to the first floor and a well-appointed cloakroom with a tiled floor and exposed beams.
A wooden glass pained door opens into an amazing, modern kitchen/dining space with fantastic original exposed beams providing a counterpoint of rustic charm. Originally comprised of three separate rooms, this area has been extensively remodelled by the current owner with the rear half accommodating an excellent range of floor and wall units, an integrated fridge freezer, eye level double oven, microwave, dishwasher and pull out storage system, all soft close.
A stunning quartz worktop runs throughout, housing a five ring Smeg gas hob with extractor and integrated sink, set beneath a window overlooking the rear gardens.
To the far left of the kitchen area there is a splendid dark wood stable door to the rear and a useful utility area with plenty of storage and integral space for a washing machine and dryer.
The kitchen area transitions to a dining space beyond the good sized central, quartz topped island. Drawer units face the kitchen, whilst glass fronted display units face the front of the room where the space is lit by another wood framed window with plenty of room for dining furniture.
Beyond the kitchen is the vast, double aspect living room. Flooded with light from the large French doors which open to the rear garden, the room benefits from attractive hard-wearing, wood effect laminate flooring and an exposed brick fireplace housing a flued gas stove. An exposed beam continues the theme across the ceiling.
To the first floor, the galleried landing has natural light from a window looking to the garden and paddock. Framed on the left by beautiful vertical and horizontal beams the high-ceilinged landing bears left and stretches off to the master bedroom in the oast. Also accessed from the landing are a further three double bedrooms, two to the front, all light and airy with beautiful beams, plus a well-appointed bathroom suite with a splendid roll top bath, shower and handsome aqua wood effect flooring.
The master bedroom is spacious and light with a window over-looking the rear grounds, a walk-in wardrobe and a spacious and stylish en-suite shower room. The cavernous, boarded loft space is accessed from the landing and offers storage and the potential to enhance the property, subject to the necessary permissions.
Broomhill Oast is set back from the lane, overlooking a paddock to the front. There is a front lawn with established trees and shrubs and a block paved path which leads to the front door. To the right the oast, a wooden five bar gate opens to a block paved driveway which bisects the rear garden and leads to a landscaped parking area to the right and the kent peg roofed, brick built double garage/workshop to the left.
Between these, a further five bar gate gives access to the two acre paddock with a couple of outbuildings and apple, pear, cherry, plum, damson and cob nut trees to the side and rear. With its easy access the paddock, the property is ideal for equestrian activities.
To the right of the drive, a gentle undulating mix of lawn, grasses, shrubs and trees create a beautiful and engaging area to sit and enjoy the surrounding countryside. Directly behind the property there is a fantastic block paved area with outside taps and seating, separated from the lawn beyond and driveway to the right by a low level brick wall. The generous lawn stretches to the parking in front of the garage. A Boston Ivy clad, brick wall, separates the rear garden from the neighbouring property, stretching from the house to the garage, flanked by a block paved path from the patio area at the rear of the house.
