A highly attractive period oast house conversion (not Listed) in an elevated position enjoying unspoilt views over open countryside together with a swimming pool (not currently in use), summer house and established grounds of about 0.67 of an acre.

Musings Oast is a highly attractive period (not Listed) converted oast house on an elevated position enjoying rural views. The house would now ideally benefit from some updating in parts. The elevations are brick and stone beneath a tiled roof.
There is oil-fired central heating and sealed unit double glazing.
The main features of the property include:
• A covered storm porch features a panelled oak door to the entrance hall, an unusual curved space echoing the original roundel. There is solid wood flooring. A panelled oak door leads through to the generously proportioned sitting room with three windows overlooking the gardens and countryside beyond, with exposed ceiling beams and a brick chimney and fireplace with bressummer beam, brick hearth and fitted log burner.
• Two steps lead up to the dining room, a triple aspect room within one of the roundels.
• The kitchen is also within one of the roundels and features unusual curved co-ordinating worktops above painted wooden units, together with a four-ring Zanussi electric hob and Belling double oven.
• An exposed brick and stone wall incorporates an arch through to the useful utility room with plumbing for washing machine and tumble dryer, single stainless steel sink unit with drainer, plumbing for dishwasher and space for a fridge freezer. There is an additional range of storage units. A door from the utility room leads to the inner hall with a cloakroom comprising WC and wash basin.
• The staircase is approached from the main reception room to the first floor landing where there is a storage cupboard and airing cupboard housing the hot water tank.
• The principal bedroom is a generous space and sits within one of the original roundels, featuring striking curved walls. Double aspect with views over the gardens and countryside beyond. The walk-through dressing room provides a range of built-in wardrobes and dressing table, leading through to the en suite shower room with glazed and tiled shower cubicle, WC, wash basin in vanity
unit, part tiled walls and a heated towel rail. This area would now benefit from some refurbishment and upgrading.
• Bedroom 3 is a single bedroom with wooden flooring, built-in wardrobe cupboard and windows overlooking the garden and countryside beyond.
• The family bathroom has recently been improved and offers a panelled bath with mixer taps, wash basin in vanity unit with storage below, WC, wood-effect flooring, heated towel rail, tongue and groove walls and views over the garden and countryside.
• Bedroom 2 is approached via six steps and sits in one of the original traditional roundel rooms with views overlooking the garden and countryside beyond. There is hatch access to a small loft area. This bedroom would also benefit
from some upgrading.

The house is approached via a driveway shared with two other properties culminating in an area of hardstanding leading to the detached garage. A gate opens to a path gently wandering down to the house.
Please note that provisional planning permission has previously been granted for conversion of the garage (RR/2010/2472/P) and for a single storey extension and erection of a new garage (RR/2010/1302/P)
To the front is a split level paved terrace with generous space for entertaining and al fresco dining, leading up to the main area of lawn which offers views over neighbouring countryside. The lower section of garden is also largely laid to lawn
and leads to the swimming pool (not currently in use) which would now benefit from some maintenance and upgrading. Adjacent to the pool is a detached timber built summer house which previously served as a changing room.
The grounds extend to some 0.67 acres.
