AgentPro is the UK’s leading estate agency software, powering property sales and lettings across the UK, and each week we choose one property from our many Estate Agents across the UK as our ‘Property of the Week’.
This week’s property of the week is a distinctive and impressive Oast house with four roundels in Rye, East Sussex. The property is currently on the market with M&W Sales and Lettings for £1,000,000.
It is believed the original Oasts were built in 1800 and the property was sympathetically converted in circa 1980. The current owner has carried out further improvements in keeping with the character of the property.
As well as the roundels which make Tibbs Oast look like it stepped straight out of a fairytale, the property offers extremely generous 6-bedroomed living accommodation and nestles perfectly into the glorious East Sussex countryside.
Country living with great restaurants and nearby beaches
The property boasts views across the Tillingham Valley and is set in a large garden with several different areas to enjoy the property from including a large patio idea for entertaining.
The country views are stunning, but don’t let the pretty rural setting and the half acre of land deceive you, the property is just three miles from the centre of Rye and six miles from the golden beach at Camber Sands, with easy access to a large number of high quality restaurants, gastropubs and coffee shops.
Rye itself is a characterful town, with local shops and a rich history. Cobbled lanes like Mermaid Street are lined with medieval, half-timbered houses. The redbrick Lamb House was once owned by writer Henry James. Nearby, the tower of the Norman St. Mary’s Church overlooks the town.
History lovers won’t be disappointed with the location, either. In Rye itself, the redbrick Lamb House was once owned by writer Henry James. Nearby, the tower of the Norman St. Mary’s Church overlooks the town. The 14th-century Ypres Tower, which formed part of Rye’s defences, is now Rye Castle Museum, with paintings and displays on local history.
Added to that, picturesque Bodiam castle is just 13 miles from Rye. The castle was built in 1385 by Sir Edward Dalyngrigge, a former knight of Edward III, with the permission of Richard II, ostensibly to defend the area against French invasion during the Hundred Years’ War.

The picturesque village of Winchelsea is approximately two miles away and Battle with train links to London’s London Bridge is approximately 12 miles away. From Rye station Ashford is approximately 25 minutes journey time and London St Pancras an average of 1 hour 17 minutes.
Wide choice of independent and local schools
In addition to a good choice of nearby independent schools Rye and Broad Oak offer primary schools and Rye College offers secondary education.
