Full property description
A magnificent attached period oast house, with an adjacent purpose built thatched barn, connected by a striking contemporary glass garden room, set within 3.08 acres of glorious gardens & paddocks, in a wonderfully rural setting near Faversham. Scotts Oast dates back to the 19th century and displays a wealth of charming period features, however the property has been extensively upgraded and improved by its current owners and now offers over 3400 sq. ft of characterful and luxuriously appointed, immaculately presented accommodation.
The property is entered via a wide front door, which opens into a spacious entrance hall, with natural stone flooring, exposed beams, wood panelled walls, stairs to the first floor and bespoke seating with storage for boots and shoes beneath. A latch-key door opens into a lovely study/family room, with half-panelled walls and wood effect tiled flooring. Beyond this, there is a well-appointed cloakroom & utility room, with a butler sink and wood block work surfaces.
To the rear of the oast, there is an impressive dual aspect sitting room, with a beamed ceiling, bespoke fitted storage, wood effect tiled flooring, a fireplace with a wood burning stove effect gas fire and double glazed French doors to the garden.
To the right of the entrance hall, there is a stunning kitchen/breakfast room which has been fitted with an extensive range of high quality traditionally styled wall and floor units, set around oak work surfaces, a twin Belfast style sink, a large quartz topped island, a great space for entertaining, a breakfast bar and natural stone flooring. There is additional fitted seating with inset storage and French doors which open onto the rear garden. From here, an incredible glass garden room connects the oast with a purpose built thatched barn, creating a striking contrast between these traditional and very contemporary architectural styles.
The barn has a spectacular beamed, vaulted ceiling, an exposed brick feature wall, herringbone wood effect floor tiles and a triple aspect, with two walls of bi-folding doors, opening the whole corner to provide an indoor/outdoor entertaining space. The barn is an outstanding space for entertaining, with well-equipped bar area, a dining area and a cosy sitting area with a wood burning stove and a wall of bespoke fitted furniture.
On the first floor, a galleried landing, with the original hop press, leads to five generously proportioned bedrooms and a beautifully appointed family bathroom. This has been fitted with a Victorian style suite, including a double ended bath, a separate shower enclosure and beautiful porcelain tiling. The main bedroom is a superb double room, with a beamed ceiling, a wall of built-in wardrobes and a well-appointed en-suite, with a double ended bath, a marble topped vanity sink and a walk-in shower enclosure.
A further staircase rises from the landing to a loft room, with a walk-in wardrobe, an en-suite shower room and far reaching views over the surrounding countryside.
Scotts Oast is set within 3.08 acres of grounds and is approached via a gravelled driveway, which provides parking for numerous cars. In addition to this, a separate driveway leads to a block of five garages, three of which are also owned by Scotts Oast. The oast is set within 0.58 acres of beautiful gardens, which are mainly laid to lawn and interspersed by a variety of mature trees, including several fruit trees. A vast sandstone patio and barbeque area wraps around the entire rear of the oast, the glass room and the barn, creating a wonderful area for outdoor entertaining. Beyond the gardens, there is a 2.5 acre paddock, with a separate vehicular entrance via Hansletts Lane.
Scotts Oast enjoys an exceptional rural setting, within walking distance of the local pub, The Alma, and a further stroll into Faversham town centre. The property is surrounded by paddocks and orchards and enjoys fine views over the surrounding countryside.
