There’ll be tears indeed when Kirsty and Simon Bell and their three children finally take flight from lovely Owl Oast. Homes & Living found out all about it.
Owl Oast is a striking three-storey, six-bedroom Kentish oast house, built in the 1830s with twin pitched tile roofs.
It is in an idyllic rural location, with fabulous views.
The accommodation stretches to nearly 5,000 square feet and makes for an ideal family home. It was totally renovated in 2009 resulting in more light flooding in to the house.
From the main entrance hall, doors leads to a generous 39ft drawing room with a brick fireplace, bressumer beam and woodburner. Double glazed double doors lead out to the back garden and another set of doors lead to the kitchen/dining room.
This is a marvellous room with ample dining space at one end, together with a smart, fitted kitchen at the other end. Beautifully presented with black granite worktops and colourwashed cupboards, there’s a twin bowl sink unit, drainer and mixer tap plus an integrated wine fridge. A central island with an inset Fagor five-ring induction hob and twin Indesit double ovens completes the picture.
Off the kitchen is an incredibly useful utility room with a separate boiler room. There’s also a sitting room and a cloakroom.
On the first floor are principal and guest bedrooms, both with en-suites, together with three additional large double bedrooms and a family bathroom.
The second floor is flexible and is currently used as a playroom.
However, there’s also a dressing area and bathroom, so this floor could easily be home to the main bedroom suite.
Owl Oast has a wealth of features, including a natural oak boarded floor in kitchen, a stained boarded floor in the drawing room and exposed natural timbers throughout.
You reach the house along a gravel driveway that leads to the open bay garaging.
The main back garden is lawn with a paved terrace.
