The Oast House is a truly unique and period property set in an idyllic location in an area of natural outstanding beauty on the edge of Frensham village; Frensham Great Pond is only a short distance away. The property dates from the 1830s when it was originally used to store and dry the hops that were traditionally grown in the area. In later years it was converted into ancillary accommodation for the country house next door, with the drawing room being used as a ballroom. The property has been beautifully maintained by the current owners and has been extended and updated to provide over 5000 sq ft of flexible space, making this a great house for relaxing and entertaining in style. The recent introduction of superfast broadband has made working from home an even more attractive option.
The Oast House is situated in a pretty area close to the picturesque villages of Frensham and Dockenfield, on the Surrey/Hampshire border. Frensham has a village shop with post office, Holly Bush public house, village hall and recreation ground with its cricket and tennis clubs. Dockenfield is a smaller hamlet with a church, village hall, playground and The Bluebell pub. The surrounding countryside offers walking and riding at Frensham Common and sailing at the Great Pond. Farnham offers an excellent choice of pubs and restaurants and an extensive range of shopping and recreational facilities. Excellent nearby schools include St Mary’s infant school, Frensham Heights and Edgeborough. The mainline station is within 4 miles and the A3/M25 provides access to London, its airports and the South Coast.
The Oast House is approached via a gravelled drive with turning and provides parking for several cars. A barn-style two bay garage (with power and water) has a room with en-suite shower above. Adjacent to the garaging is a workshop with power and lighting. The attractive rear gardens are mainly laid to lawn and are neatly landscaped using a combination of stone built raised flower beds, Indian Sandstone terrace, box hedging framing the beds and planting designed to provide colour and interest throughout the year. A mature Walnut tree provides a stunning focal point to the garden and terrace.
