Hillreed Homes Ltd, a leading property developer in the South East of England specified Sandtoft’s Alban clay plain tile in Sussex Blend for a landmark home on its Oast Court Farm development in East Malling, Kent.

The centrepiece of a private, gated development of eight bespoke properties, ‘The Offham’, a brand new Oast House was built to create a superb, individual family home. The Oast House’s three roundels topped with conical white cowls required a traditional clay plain tile that complemented the style of build.


The Design Manager at Hillreed Residential Developments, said: “Oast Houses are a significant part of the history of this area of Kent and seen by many as a landmark of the region.

“As the three roundels of the Oast House are such a prominent part of the property, it was essential that we used the most appropriate tiles. The Alban tiles matched the colourings and reflected the heritage of the property perfectly and provided us with a durable, cost-effective solution.”


The Oast Court Farm development is a great example of the Alban’s flexibility. The heritage aesthetic of the tile is a perfect fit for the new development yet sits comfortably and reflects the vernacular style of traditional Oasts in the area.
