The property provides a beautifully presented home, thoughtfully created from a picturesque former farmstead with the house occupying a mellow Grade II Listed oast, stable and granary. The buildings are arranged around a large quadrangle which creates a very special setting across which...
the different elements of the property communicate. Ruffynes Oast has flexible accommodation with fantastic reception areas across two sides of the garden. A stunning kitchen/ breakfast/family room is at the heart of the home with a cosy snug in the roundel. Whilst this provides a comfortable everyday living space, its relationship with the generous drawing, dining and sitting rooms within the former stables across the courtyard means that there is plenty of room for entertaining. Bi-fold doors allow masses of natural light and enable a seamless transition from one wing to the other across the beautiful garden which is in itself a ‘room’.The adjoining former granary houses two first floor en suite bedrooms and a ground floor bedroom and shower room. These currently work well as children’s rooms. The principal bedroom suite is a generously proportioned room above the drawing room and a charming en suite guest bedroom is found in the roundel, each set to either end of the house with their own staircases making for a private and flexible arrangement.Ruffynes Barn, a Grade II listed barn with consent for conversion to a five bedroom dwelling, is available by separate negotiation.The property is approached via two five-bar gates which open onto an attractive gravelled driveway leading to the double-bay garaging and adjoining single garage.The garden has been well landscaped to provide structure, interest and the perfect backdrop to the different areas of the house. Planting includes established borders, espalier fruit trees and silver birch. The large courtyard between the buildings is laid to lawn and provides a fantastic extension to the house with large terraces adjacent to the kitchen and reception rooms.
