House for sale on the North Downs at Shottenden

By KentOnline reporter

An old hop press is part of the package at a converted oasthouse for sale high on Kent’s North Downs.

Russet Oast, at Shottenden, near Canterbury is on the market with Humberts, with a guide price of £795,000.

The semi-detached house has been beautifully refurbished by the current owners and it is now presented in an immaculate condition.

The five-bedroom Grade II-listed home is arranged over three floors and there is a large integral garage.

On the ground floor are two reception rooms and the kitchen/breakfast room.

On the first floor are two bedrooms with en suites and a third bedroom and family bathroom. A reception room with the hop press is also on this floor.

On the top floor are two more bedrooms and a bathroom.

The property is accessed via a shared gravelled driveway which has been fenced to provide a large parking and turning area, along with access to the large garage and lawn.

At the back, there is a paved area with steps on to another area of lawn.

The property sits on the outskirts of the semi-rural village of Shottenden, high on the North Downs, in a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

It is well placed for access to Chilham, with its picturesque square, farm shop, primary school, sports centre, pubs and mainline station.

Martin Jordan, of Humberts, says the property offers a lot of space and has a great finish.

He says: “The property is presented to an exceptionally high standard and offers the benefits of modern luxuries with the charm of period living.

“Particular original features include antique pine floor boards, kiln doors, the hop press and mellow beams.

“Luxury items include Category 6 wiring, underfloor heating to limestone tiling on the ground floor, solid oak doors to kitchen cupboards and quartz work surfaces as well as solid oak doors, bespoke solid oak staircase, and a water softener system.

“The current vendors have spent considerable time and effort upgrading the property.

“The building sits adjacent to a fruit farm and offers extensive rural views. It overlooks an original period farmhouse and has rural views to front and back.”
