The Oaks

Statuesque and unmistakably English, the houses at The Oaks reflect the qualities of their tree namesake. Choose from 9 three-, four- and fivebedroom houses that form a private cul-de-sac setting off Common Road in Sissinghurst. Architectural influences have been drawn from the picturesque locale, with red brick, weatherboarding and pitched roofs echoing centuries of traditional Kentish housebuilding. The street scene is softened by the retention of mature trees and the addition of naturefriendly soft landscaping, while every home has at least two off-street parking spaces as standard.

 

The Location

Originally called Milkhouse Street, the village was rumoured to have changed its name to Sissinghurst in the 1850s to disassociate itself from the notorious Hawkhurst Gang of smugglers. Today, the village is chosen for its semi-rural charm, position within the highly desirable 
Cranbrook School catchment and its vastly unchanged character. That character is upheld by an abundance of listed weatherboarded cottages, listed weatherboarded cottages and timber-framed houses, giving Sissinghurst a sought-after ‘step back in time’ quality.

While Sissinghurst is a well-preserved piece of history, it contains all the conveniences required for modern life. As well as a primary school, there is a village hall, Trinity Church, TN17 Food & Wine, a Post Office, Sissinghurst Cricket Club, The Granary Restaurant at Sissinghurst Castle and The Milk House – the village’s very own gastropub and dining room. The latter is a real neighbourhood hub, renowned for its roast dinners, pizzas, live music and dog-friendly bar.

Perched on the north eastern fringe of the High Weald Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and a firm favourite on the ‘Garden of England’ tour, Sissinghurst is home to some of Kent’s most majestic landscapes. Ancient woodlands, fields and orchards stretch as far as the eye can see – best enjoyed by following an accessible network of public footpaths and pre-set trails. Sissinghurst Castle Garden is the village’s jewel in the 
crown – a world renowned National Trust location famed for its natural beauty and horticultural importance. A panoramic view of the immaculate gardens, and of the spectacular Wealden countryside, is gained from the tower – a structure that’s straight out of a fairy tale setting. 
Sissinghurst enjoys equally illustrious neighbours, with Scotney Castle, Hole Park Gardens, Great Dixter, Leeds Castle and Pashley Manor Gardens a short drive for those who want to continue their love of Kentish landscapes.
