An absolutely stunning Grade II listed attached twin roundel Oast house, located on a promontory overlooking Bewl Reservoir at the end of a no-through Country Lane, enjoying nearly three acres of gardens and grounds and completely refurbished and modernised internal accommodation, to comprise an open plan main kitchen/sitting/dining room, snug, fitted office, four double bedrooms, two en-suites and a family bathroom, plus a mezzanine music area, balcony and wrap around patio, pond, stables and field shelter, all set within approximately 2.6 acres of gardens, woodland and paddocks.
Beaumans Oast was comprehensively restored, remodelled and refurbished by the current owners and renowned local architect, Stephen Langer in 2005.
The property looks as good today as it did then, with some stunning features and cabinetry, to include oak doors, oak kitchen, hand made stair cases, including one in the roundel, plus the bespoke office set up and roundel en-suite to the guest bedroom, which is just extraordinary!
Modern touches were also installed, such as large sliding oak doors to the garden from the open plan main living space, matching oak windows, underfloor heating for the whole ground floor and velux windows which allow natural light to flow into the bathrooms upstairs.
The location is simply spectacular, right at the end of a no-through single track country lane, with Bewl Reservoir bordering two sides of the fields, and other Period country houses providing the security of neighbours, without being overlooked.
One enters via a covered porch, with Oak front door and glass panels to either side to the entrance hall, with a cloakroom to one side, boot/coat cupboard and a window to rear.
A further door leads into a utility room within a roundel, comprising a range of units, plus sink and space for various appliances, internal Grant oil fired boiler and a stable door to the garden.
The second roundel forms a rather stunning office, with two windows to the rear garden, bespoke circular desk area, with shelving and storage that have been beautifully crafted to fit, as well as a staircase rising to the first-floor mezzanine room, with a frosted glass floor.
From the entrance hall, a large door opens to the open plan kitchen/dining/living space, complete with large floor to ceiling glass sliding doors to the patio and rear garden, limestone flooring throughout, exposed oak timbers and a hand-crafted kitchen.
The kitchen area provides a large array of storage within cupboards and drawers, with a circular ended Island mimicking the Oast roundel, granite worktops, two integrated sinks, appliances to include an oil fired four oven Aga, dishwasher and fridge. There are also two walk-in stores, one forming a pantry, the other a crockery cupboard.
To one end is the living room space, with further Oak and glass sliding doors to the patio and a modern wood burner forming a focal point to one wall.
To the other end of the room is a snug area, attractively separated by a partial brick and open timber wall, providing a small play/TV area, tucked away from the main living space.
An oak staircase leads up and round to a wide landing, illuminated by a velux window above. A hatch leads to the loft space, which offers further potential, subject to any planning consents.
A door leads into the master bedroom suite, providing a part vaulted bedroom with floor to ceiling windows and doors opening on to the balcony looking out to Bewl in one direction and over the gardens and fields in the other. The high windows are fitted with an electric remote control roller blind, modern cast iron radiators adorn two walls, with further windows and doors leading out to the side balcony, and ample space for wardrobes.
The en-suite is adjacent, illuminated via a velux window, comprising a walk-in shower, WC and his and hers basins atop a vanity unit, with a heated towel rail and oak flooring.
There are two further double bedrooms in this part of the house, both with fitted wardrobes and windows overlooking the gardens and fields. The family bathroom is opposite, comprising a bath and separate shower, WC and basin atop a vanity unit, heated towel rail and velux window providing natural light.
An inner landing with a window to rear links back to the twin roundels, with a large airing cupboard and steps up to the mezzanine area above the office.
A further door leads to the guest bedroom, which is back in the original part of the Oast and partly vaulted with exposed rafters and beams, oak flooring, window to front, space for wardrobes and steps up to the roundel en-suite, forming a truly stunning room, with a circular walk-in shower, twin circular sinks with circular worktops and matching cupboards, WC and three circular towel rails.
Outside, the front five bar gates lead to a large driveway with ample parking for several vehicles and direct access to the front porch, utility room and rear paved patio.
A paved pathway leads to a pergola covered paved patio, with flower bed and shrub borders and forming a tucked away seating area. The main patio around the kitchen and living room provides an excellent entertaining space, partially covered by the balcony above.
The rear of the gardens are mainly laid to lawn, with a pond area with mature Willow tree and post and rail fencing separating the paddocks.
A gate to one corner leads towards the stables and machine store to one corner of the plot, which in turn provides access to the paddocks and wooded area of garden behind the stables.
The fields are split into two paddocks, with the second paddock also having a five bar gate back to the garden, a mobile field shelter and several maturing fruit trees. There is also a pedestrian gate to the footpath and Bewl.
You cannot beat the location! Tucked away backing onto farmland and facing Bewl Reservoir Nature Reserve, this house is about as quiet as one could expect in the South East of England.
The house is located at the end of a no-through single track lane, with the original farmhouse and cottage nearby, all located directly in between Wadhurst and Ticehurst Villages, with direct access to footpaths.
Wadhurst is a pretty and characterful village with a pretty predominantly period High Street in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty which has much to offer.
Ticehurst is also very pretty, providing an array of shops around the central village square, and a gastro pub, The Bell. The area offers Churches of various denominations within a good and strong community.
From a shopping perspective there is a very good local supermarket and Post Office, a family run butcher’s, greengrocer, chemist, delicatessen, hairdressers, a high quality gift shop and ladies outfitters, an excellent library and book shop. Wadhurst also benefits from a very good local Doctor’s Practice and Dentist.
There is an excellent choice of education and care from Nurseries and Primary Schools through to Secondary schools, for both boys and girls, in the private and state sector.
Nearby leisure facilities include tennis, an excellent children’s playground, a community sports centre, Bedgebury Pinetum and Bewl Water Reservoir which offers sailing and other outdoor pursuits.
Approximately six miles North of Wadhurst is the lovely Spa town of Royal Tunbridge Wells, with its fabulous shopping and beautiful Regency style paved Pantiles area, theatres and various other leisure facilities. This town also has very high achieving grammar schools.
