Roundel oast and barn

Property Posted 31/07/18
An unusual opportunity has arisen to acquire a well-presented twin roundel oast and barn of 3,263 sq ft commanding the most wonderful views, together with 141 acres of farm land, ideal for equestrian use and with an established shoot.

Bough Oast is not listed, and the elevations are brick, part tile hung beneath a tiled roof with white painted cowls above. There is mains water, electricity, gas and drainage plus a 160’ deep borehole. The ground floor has Chinese multi-coloured slate throughout. The interior has good ceiling heights and oak timbering.

Bough Oast has the amenities of a small farming estate, having the benefit of 141.27 acres of farmland, broadleaf woodland and lake.

The drive approach, over part of which one other property has a right of access, leads past the three and a half bay open-fronted cart lodge garaging to ample parking in front of the house.

The established garden forms a very appropriate setting, with brick terrace adjacent to the house, areas of lawn, established trees and shrubs, and a pergola. There is a large natural pond.

The wall-enclosed swimming pool has a heat exchange unit and is set in a paved surround. Adjacent are two timber stables and a tack room.

The land lies in a single block, having a separate access from the A265 road east of Burwash Weald The land is bounded to the north-west by a stream known as Furnace Gill and is typical of the area.

The soil type at the southern end is described on a geological survey plan of Great Britain as Ashdown Beds over clay.

The farmland is principally pasture interspersed by broadleaf woodland, with bluebells, chestnut coppice and amenity shaws. These provide the basis for a small reared pheasant shoot which has developed in recent years.

The farm buildings comprise an old seven-bay monopitch implement shed and a general purpose timber and corrugated sheet field store in need of repair.

Price £2,000,000 - £2,200,000
