What's more Kentish than an oast house? That's right, you guessed it… Two oast houses.

With that in mind it's not hard to see why then that Branden Oast, a fabulous conversion of a twin roundel oast, has quickly become the county's most viewed home on Zoopla.

According to the property search site almost 10,000 people have viewed the quirky abode in Marden, near Tonbridge, in the last 30 days.

That's almost double the amount of interest amassed by the second most viewed home in Kent this month.

What are you waiting for?!

It's on the market with Savills for just shy of £1million – and it seems that many are counting their pennies to be in with a chance of being the home's new owner.

Estate egents say it boasts "versatile and very well-proportioned accommodation that could provide the opportunity for multi-generational living, subject to minor modifications."

There are lots of character features

Historically, Branden Oast was a working oast house used for drying hops and more recently an office building.

Now having been cleverly and sympathetically converted it provides a stylish and inviting home with plenty of natural light.

From the hall, double doors open to an impressive 32ft drawing room with gas fire. There are two adjoining roundels; a study and dining room.

A west wing currently incorporates a further sitting room/bedroom 5, study, shower room and utility room and could potentially be a great annexe or teenage suite.

The lovely part-vaulted kitchen/breakfast room with floor to ceiling windows to the east elevation, is fitted with a range of cupboards with various integral appliances.

On the first floor there are four bedrooms which are served by three bath/shower rooms.

Outside there is a small fenced garden to the east of the house while to the front there is plenty of parking space. Branden Oast has a right of access over the drive.

Duncan Petrie of Savills Cranbrook said: “Branden Oast is a fantastic conversion of a twin roundel oast with flexible accommodation which could provide the opportunity for multi-generational living if required.”
