Savills is delighted to present The Glebe, a charming period property set on 64.7 ac in a wonderful setting overlooking the River Blackwater. The five bedroom property is set among mature trees on an elevated c.3.5 acre site and sits on the edge of a 24 acre land holding running down to the river. The house is well proportioned with two fine bright reception rooms, a separate kitchen and pantry, rear kitchen and entrance porch. Upstairs five bedrooms and a bathroom are well laid out with a wide bright landing. The house is in need of complete renovation and refurbishment.

Further Information

The lands run towards the river in two lots, separated by the local road and are a mix of woodland, agricultural land used for grazing with some under tillage and the garden area of the house. This is a rare opportunity to acquire a picturesque parcel of land with a period home. The agricultural lands are currently let to a local farmer on a short term basis.

Built in c.1895, The Glebe has been in the same family ownership for over 67 years. Originally constructed as The Templemichael Rectory, the house is now listed in the National Inventory of Architectural Heritage and is in need of full renovation offering the discerning purchase the opportunity to put their own personal stamp on the property with the ability to retain original fireplaces, stone and pitch pine floors and cornicing.

Within the land you will also find four separate dwelling ruins, namely Glengloss Lodge, The Old Dispensary, Red Lodge and Glengloss House dotted throughout the lands but all with their own road frontage. The lands contain a mix of tillage, grazing and woodland with plentiful wildlife such as deer and pheasant often seen roaming this fabulous land holding.

The property overlooks the River Blackwater with picturesque views of Ballynatray Demesne in the bend where the Glendine River joins the Blackwater. This area of the Blackwater is particularly renowned for fishing with listed fish weirs located in this section of the famous Blackwater.
