Oast houses, England

I wanted to share my love of unusual buildings turned into residential properties. The oast house!!! Primarily based in the South of England, they are stunning structures.

An oast, oast house or hop kiln was a building designed for drying hops as part of the brewing process. Normally two or three storeys high, the hops were spread out to dry by hot air from the kiln. To me, they are similar to barn conversions and I have spent many a happy night or two at Rowena and Matt's place in Hitchin (thanks for the amazing dinners too Row!!).

What do you think? Like them too?
