Converted Oast House in peaceful valley for sale

Pett House is a fantastic converted three kiln oast house with wonderful brick and flint elevations and three roundels with traditional cowls. Originally converted in the 1920s, the property was substantially enhanced and upgraded in the 1980s to provide very spacious accommodation of great character. Period features include some lovely old doors and exposed timbers – some reputed to be from ships broken up at Chatham Dockyard.

The kitchen/breakfast room is in one of the roundels with a two-oven AGA inset in the brick fireplace, and a door opens into the inner hall. Beyond is the dining room with polished oak floorboards and ceiling timbers, and doors leading to the conservatory, drawing room and sitting room. The generous drawing room has lovely views over the garden, and there is an open fireplace.
