Property description

This charming yet substantial Oast house sits enviably in an elevated position with views over the neighbouring farmland. Whilst the interior of the property exudes a blend of contemporary and period charm in equal measures.

The original building is thought to date back to 1865 and was converted in 2002 into its current configuration of a five/six double bedroom residence. Occupying three floors the property affords a great level of flexible living accommodation. To the ground floor a sizeable, modern and well equipped fitted kitchen/dining room has been installed and provides access to a southerly facing sun terrace with far reaching views. Across the hall a characterful sitting room with an inglenook fireplace, log burning stove and exposed oak beams affords a delightful spot in which to relax and unwind with a good book or with friends and family. A separate utility room and downstairs cloakroom provide practicality and convenience.

The first floor provides three substantial double bedrooms served by a family sized bathroom. The master bedroom suite on the second floor benefits from double aspect views, character exposed beams, a sizeable walk in wardrobe and a high specification en-suite shower room. Additionally two further double bedrooms and another beautifully finished bathroom with a roll top bath tub complete the second floor.

Sunrise Oast is Nestled within a small enclave of quality properties that have likewise been converted. It is set in a peaceful rural setting, equidistant to the villages Hunton and Yalding, each benefitting from their own primary schools. Yalding is a pretty village in the heart of the Kentish fruit growing countryside. The village includes a post office, tea rooms, historic church, general stores, pubs and eateries, as well as its own train station. There are also monthly farmers markets and local events throughout the course of the year, including a popular festival.

More comprehensive shopping and facilities are available at Tunbridge Wells, Paddock Wood or the county town of Maidstone. Amongst the most highly regarded in Kent, the local primary school receives consistently impressive reports. Mainline trains run from Paddock Wood and Marden, the former with a journey time to London in just 45 minutes. There are a number of bus services that serve the local surrounding towns and schools. Kentish countryside surrounds the village, which is ideal for horse riding or walks by the river, canals or parkland.
