Virtual viewing available: Large rural family home; scope for updating; railway station nearby.
Set amidst beautiful countryside, the Oast House enjoys a rural position on Crouch Lane, a short distance from Selling Railway Station. This generous family house suits a large family, and would benefit from some updating.
The location has much to commend it, not least the short distance to Selling Railway Station, allowing school and office commuting without the need for a car. Schools in both Faversham and Canterbury are within easy access as a result, by both train and car.
This unique period home displays two instantly recognisable kiln roofs, with their white wooden cowls a key characteristic of the oast house and a quintessentially Kentish sight. The views from the house are exceptional. Inside, the property features more than 4,500 square feet of splendid accommodation, with plenty of period character retained, including timber beams and exposed brickwork.
The ground floor has a comfortable pair of sitting rooms (one formerly the dining room), both of which have French doors opening onto the west-facing gardens. The open-plan kitchen, dining room and conservatory is a light and airy living space, with the kitchen featuring flagstone flooring, wooden units and a stainless steel range cooker, and the space flowing into the conservatory with its expansive glass ceiling, which overlooks the pretty garden.
The first floor has a further reception room in the triple-aspect drawing room, with its vaulted wooden kiln ceiling. There are five bedrooms on the first floor, including the principal bedroom, which has extensive fitted storage and an en suite bathroom. The family bathroom is also on the first floor, while the second floor has a further double bedroom, a games room, which could be a seventh bedroom if required, and a large storage room.
This property has 1 acres of land.
At the entrance to the property, security gates open onto a driveway, which provides plenty of parking and leads to the triple carport.
The garden to the rear is west facing and private, overlooking open fields. There are gravel pathways and extensive lawns, with border hedgerows and a variety of established shrubs and mature trees and also a timber-constructed summer house.
Well sited for school and commuting access, with Selling Station a short walk away and The M2 and Canterbury and Faversham close by.
The property is located on the edge of the popular village of Selling, to the south of the market town of Faversham and on the edge of the beautiful Kent Downs Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Selling itself is a small community, with school, shop/tea room and public houses. Local amenities can be found in nearby Boughton-Under-Blean, or in Faversham itself. Selling station provides a service to London Victoria or London St. Pancras via Faversham.
The town of Faversham provides a range of shops and services for day-to-day needs, including supermarkets. There are several excellent schools in the nearby area, including Queen Elizabeth Grammar School (Faversham), The Kings School, Canterbury, St Edmunds School and the Simon Langton grammar schools.
From Canterbury: Take the A2 towards Faversham. At the roundabout for the M2, take the first exit onto Brenley Lane and then turn left to stay on Brenley Lane. After just over a mile, turn right onto Crouch Lane. The property will be found on the right-hand side after 0.25 of a mile.Read all
