Enjoying a stunning countryside location in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Lavender Fields is an outstanding development and truly unique new community. Lavender Oast is the striking new five-bedroom show home with a fully working cowl, spacious open plan living areas and a detached double garage. The home features a larger than average garden and stunning views over surrounding countryside.
Dating back to the 16th century, Oast houses were used to dry fresh hops before being sent to the brewers, to flavour beer. As the brewing process became industrialised and hops increasingly were imported from abroad, the use of Oast houses died out. Rather than lose this architectural heritage, many of the buildings were repurposed with buyers falling in love with the charm and quirkiness of this historic building style.
Philip Brown, Sales Director at Millwood Designer Homes, comments: “Oast houses can be seen across some of the prettiest part of the Sussex countryside and are highly sought-after homes, with buyers attracted to their picturesque locations and striking original features. Lavender Oast reflects the areas rich heritage and offers a home with distinct identity and character. It is extremely rare to find an Oast House as part of a premium new build development, so we urge interested buyers to get in contact as soon as possible.”
Reflecting the true scale and proportion of a traditional Oast house, Lavender Oast occupies a prime position on one of the largest plots on the development and overlooks a preserved pond. A truly exquisite family home, the home provides an abundance of space for flexible living. Ensuring the home is flooded with natural light, the ground floor is home to a spacious open plan kitchen/breakfast area and garden room, complete with French doors leading out into the rear garden. The home provides a separate dining room, study, and a large drawing room with French feature doors to rear, a brick-built fire place and wood burning stove, perfect for cosy nights in.
Upstairs, the master bedroom offers a walk-in dressing area with fitted wardrobes and a four-piece en-suite. A family bathroom and three further bedrooms are located on this floor, one with an en-suite bathroom complete with stylish white sanitary ware and chrome accessories. On the second floor, the guest bedroom features vaulted ceiling and en-suite. Uninterrupted views through glazed French doors and windows, provide extensive views across the expansive rear garden.
Following a traditional design, the three-storey split level building is clad in white weatherboarding and reclaimed red brick and tiles from the existing site. Behind its traditional façade, the home offers a first-class, luxurious specification.
