For many people, the Kentish dream is owning an oast house and this lovely attached triple-kiln converted oast in a rural setting ticks all the boxes.

In warm brick with blue headers and casement windows under a pitched tiled roof, its just as appealing inside. Oak beams and timbers, open fireplaces and vaulted ceilings combine with exposed brickwork and oak and pine floors across the three floors of accommodation.

The drawing room has a wood-burning stove and French windows open onto the garden, which boasts a heated swimming pool and terrace. A cosy Aga warms the kitchen, which is open plan to the vaulted dining and family areas.

Upstairs, the master bedroom suite is particularly impressive, with its oak staircase to a gallery and a dramatic conical ceiling. There are five further bedrooms, two bath/shower rooms and plenty of storage space throughout. The grounds include a double garage and paddock.
