Can you imagine growing up in this former Oast House near Rye that jumped out of the pages of a children’s story?
This extremely charming Grade II listed former Oast House occupies an enviable picturesque setting in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, yet only a short distance from historic Rye town centre, while the residence itself boasts breathtaking views of the nearby nature reserve, Camber Castle and Winchelsea Beach beyond.
Character abounds, this bright and well-appointed home offers extremely versatile accommodation. On the ground floor, there are a multitude of exposed beams, a cantou hosts a wood stove in one of the two living rooms, a bespoke round fitted kitchen with separate utility room / utility room, a contemporary veranda with vaulted ceiling, a library and a downstairs cloakroom complete the ground floor.
An oak staircase rises to three bedrooms on the first floor. The master bedroom is generously proportioned with fitted wardrobes, a reading nook and a luxurious en-suite bath/shower room, while bedrooms two and three are served by an equally impressive family shower room. A spiral staircase rises to the second floor with a mezzanine, bedroom four and provides access to a substantial attic/storage room.
An additional staircase goes up to the second first floor, where there is a fifth bedroom with en-suite bathroom. This part of the house is ideal for guests or, if required, can be configured as an integral annex.
