Retaining much of its period character, Renville Oast is a beautifully converted Grade II Listed oast that dates from the 19th Century. Located between Canterbury and the popular village of Bridge, the property has far reaching rural views. The accommodation is light and airy throughout with the three kilns providing unique and versatile accommodation. The vendors currently utilise the space to run a successful Bed & Breakfast business.
The generous reception hall, featuring a vaulted wood-panelled ceiling, leads into the kitchen/breakfast room, which occupies the central circular kiln; this area has exposed timber beams to the ceiling, bespoke shaker-style units and integrated appliances. A central island with solid wood top also acts as a large breakfast bar. The reception and dining rooms occupy the other two circular kilns and have fine views over the garden and fields beyond. The ground floor accommodation also offers a good-sized family room, a study/workshop, a large utility room and a cloakroom. There is access to the integrated garage from the hall.
The first floor master bedroom occupies one of the feature circular rooms, and benefits from an adjoining walk-through dressing room and an en-suite bathroom. Three further bedrooms have en-suite shower rooms, and the two remaining bedrooms are served by a family bathroom and separate cloakroom.
A loft hatch leads to the vast second floor space, which has potential to provide further accommodation, subject to any necessary planning consents. Many of the oast’s original features have been retained such as the white painted cowls at the top of the kilns, originally a vital part of the hop drying process. Exposed timbers still remain and a former hop press, used to compress the dried hops into their storage pockets, now helps to bring the history of this building to life.
A gravel driveway leads to a parking area and access to the integrated garage. A paved patio to the rear of the house provides the ideal spot for entertaining or dining al fresco, and overlooks the large garden which is laid to lawn and bordered by mature trees. The garden backs onto fields, offering pleasant views from the property and grounds.
