ARE you a beer lover hop-ful of finding your perfect countryside home?

This two roundel oast house which overlooks a lake in a small rural hamlet in Etchingham, near Robertsbridge, could be yours for £2.75 million.

The historic mill house was originally built in about 1776 and is believed to be one of the largest surviving examples of an oast house – buildings used to dry hops during the brewing process.

The distinctive conical roof design was developed during the 18th century and the twin roundels give this eight-bedroom property plenty of rustic charm.

The Argus:

The oast house itself holds five bedrooms, while the detached granary barn has an additional three bedrooms with en suite bathrooms, as well as a second open-plan living room and a second kitchen.

In the main house, one of the roundels has a unique kitchen with bespoke curved wooden units and a range of appliances, while the other roundel has a cosy dining room with one of the house’s three woodburning stoves.

The Argus:

There are wooden beams and oak and flagstone flooring throughout the property, which also has underfloor heating and tinted self-clean double glazed windows.

Outside, a sun terrace looks out on to a south-facing garden. A beautifully designed pool house with vaulted ceiling has its own gym, plus an indoor and outdoor swimming pool.
