For sale in Bristol: We take a look inside the stunning house with outdoor kitchen, swimming pool and gym

It was built in the 1600s and stands testament to the area’s brewing industry

Originally constructed in the 1600s, the Old Oast House in Hanham Abbots embodies a rich history intertwined with the heritage of the east Bristol region.

The presence of Oast Houses in Hanham Abbots reflects the historical connections and agricultural practices of the area. 

The five-bedroom property has two large reception rooms and four bathrooms, and comes with a long list of features that make it stand out, including its 120-year-old duck pond, an open gallery adorned with chandeliers, stunning orangery and kitchen where no expense has been spared.

Outside, you’ll find a log storage area, a six-person high-value hot tub, a children's playground, a playhouse, and a twelve-foot heated swimming pool, all carefully designed to blend with the architecture and maximise the breathtaking views. 

There is also a state-of-the-art gym (to be sold by separate negotiation), an outdoor office/pool room, and a recently bespoke hand-made outdoor kitchen (to be sold by separate negotiation) which provides the perfect space for al fresco dining and entertaining guests. 

The rear of the house faces south, offering stunning views that run down the River Avon, as well as neighbouring fields where horses graze peacefully.

The Old Oast House stands as a testament to the region's agricultural heritage and the once-thriving hop industry in England. Its distinctive traditional architecture serves as reminders of a bygone era when rural life revolved around farming practices that shaped local economies and cultural traditions.

Oast houses, typically found in Kent and Sussex, were used for drying hops in the beer-making process.

Properties like this rarely come up for sale and the current family, residing here since 2010, have meticulously transformed this historic home into a modern oasis. Every aspect reflects their commitment to excellence, from the bespoke European oak windows, dormers, and doors to the award-winning integrated kitchen and luxurious bathroom designs.

The property is on the market through Allen & Harris with a price of £1,250,000. For more information, click here.

The property is also part of the UK’s largest Open House event during the weekend of May 18/19.
