OAST HOUSE: England Vacation Rental by Owner Listing 1995ha

OAST HOUSE (with private Jacuzzi) This is a “Fairy Tale” house with private jacuzzi, set in the extensive grounds of a Tudor Manor House. It consists of two large (17ft diameter) round towers, which were originally used for drying hops for beer making during the late 19th century. However, hop growing did not prosper in East Sussex as it did in Kent, and the buildings became used only as barns. A large extra barn was added to store grain in the early 1900’s. When my grandfather bought the whole property in 1908 he decided that the oasts would make an ideal dower house for his widowed mother, and it was converted to a house in 1911. The two towers were divided in halves, providing two large circular upstairs bedrooms, and two large downstairs reception rooms. The added “barn area” now forms an attractive double bedroom upstairs, with bathroom and another small bedroom and separate w.c. Downstairs a really delightful kitchen.
