Location: Hurst Green, East Sussex
Work carried out: Remodelling and renovation
The site lies within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty on the border of Kent and Sussex. The oast was originally part of a local Farm which had been split up some time ago and the barn had been converted to residential use by a previous owner. The work involved rearranging the interior, to create a Study and a new staircase to the First Floor. Most of the rooms were altered in some way, the Kitchen was re-fitted, new oak windows inserted, exterior weatherboarding replaced with oak and First Floor timber balcony. A new Master Bedroom En-Suite in the cone of the oast was deferred until later.
