This former kiln where brewers would dry hops to be made into beer has been converted into a spacious country home with a £1,250,000 price tag.

The Kilns was formerly part of Snailslynch Farm, which dates back to the 16th century.

It is not known when the hops kiln was built, but the Farnham area’s hops industry boomed in the 18th century, so it is likely that this is the latest the building would have been constructed.

The detached building is made up of three towers and a barn, together spanning more than 6,000 square feet, as well as a garden measuring a third of an acre.

On the ground floor of the property are a living room, a kitchen/breakfast room, a dining room, a barn, three office areas and a utility room.

Adrian Cannon of Bourne Estate Agents commented: “The Kilns is a truly unique opportunity to purchase a wonderfully spacious, detached former Hop Kiln with a substantial barn, boasting over 6,000 square feet, with an enchanting picturesque secluded garden, measuring a third of an acre.

“Nestled in the heart of the most unique location it is, in our opinion, one of Farnham’s hidden gems.”
