A splendid Victorian oast house, set within glorious, south facing gardens and surrounded by farmland, in a beautiful rural setting between Faversham and Whitstable. The property forms part of a larger oast house, which was sympathetically converted into three separate dwellings during the 1960Âs. This particular property occupies both a roundel and a square kiln and offers spacious and extremely characterful accommodation over three floors.
The front door opens into a central entrance hall, with a well appointed cloakroom, an understairs cupboard and stairs to the first floor. To the right of the entrance hall, there is a charming, dual aspect sitting room, with exposed beams, an exposed brick chimney breast with a wood burning stove and French doors which open onto a south facing patio area.
The kitchen/breakfast room is to the left of the entrance hall and is set within the roundel of the oast, with two, tall sash windows and stable doors to the garden. It has been fitted with a good range of modern wall and floor units, set around composite granite work surfaces, integrated appliances and a natural stone floor, with underfloor heating.
On the first floor, a central landing leads to three double bedrooms and a beautifully appointed family shower room. This has been fitted with a contemporary white suite and finished with attractive natural slate wall and floor tiling with under floor heating.
The main bedroom is a magnificent room, occupying the roundel of the oast, with three sash windows, exposed beams and a staircase to a mezzanine en-suite bathroom, set within the kiln of the roundel. Another staircase rises from the first floor landing to an office/guest bedroom on the second floor of the square kiln. This has exposed beams and two Velux windows, which afford far reaching views over the surrounding countryside.
The property is approached via a long driveway, which provides parking for three to four cars and leads to a detached double garage, with two electric doors and a useful loft room. The gardens are mainly laid to lawn, with beautifully planted beds and borders and a large patio area which wraps around the oast. We understand from the vendor that beneath an area of decking adjacent to the sitting room, is the base for a conservatory, which could still be completed under its previous planning consent. There is also a pretty, weatherboarded outbuilding, which serves as a garden kitchen/utility room, along with a storage area as well. SITUATION:
The property is situated on a quiet country lane and enjoys a wonderfully rural setting, surrounded by beautiful farmland and countryside, just outside the peaceful village of Graveney. The village of Graveney is a small yet widely dispersed village situated in between the historic market town of Faversham, the charming seaside town of Whitstable and the historic Cathedral City of Canterbury and is predominantly surrounded by farmland and in walking distance of the sea wall.
The village is served by The Four Horseshoes public house, the Michelin Star Sportsman pub, a primary school, a regular bus service and All Saints Church, a beautiful fourteenth century church. Furthermore, the Saxon Shore Way passes along the Graveney marshes, providing a beautiful walk between Faversham to Seasalter and Whitstable and benefits from an off road cycle path, linking Graveney with Faversham.
Whilst the surrounding farmland gives a wonderfully rural feel, Graveney enjoys excellent road communications as it is within easy reach of Brenley roundabout, the point at which the A2, A299 and M2 converge, providing easy access to Faversham, Canterbury, Dover, Thanet and London.
The nearby market town of Faversham, famous for its Hop Festival, offers a wide range of shopping, leisure and educational amenities, including a good selection of primary schools and two secondary schools, including the renowned Queen Elizabeth Grammar School. Faversham has a mainline railway station with a high speed rail link to London St. Pancras.
The city of Canterbury (less than 8 miles) 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 Marlowe Theatre.
The seaside town of Whitstable, famous for its seafood and annual oyster festival held at the vibrant harbour and picturesque quayside is just 6 miles away. The town also has a variety of independent shops and boutiques, good local primary and secondary schools, numerous pubs, restaurants and excellent leisure facilities.
