Lovely secluded setting in the heart of the village. NO CHAIN.
Glebe House is a unique home, being a village house and yet enjoying a quiet and secluded setting within Prestbury conservation area. Originally converted from a range of outbuildings and stables to the Grade II listed Manor House in 1982 the property has been thoroughly upgraded in recent years to provide for stylish and comfortable four bedroomed, three bathroom accommodation with a contemporary flourish.
It is unusual to find a property with such amazing gardens in a village centre location and the feature of Spencer Brook dissecting these gardens adds depth and interest. With mature specimen trees and views to The Glebe land beyond, with the river Bollin meandering past, there is a very rural feel to the setting.
The accommodation is beautifully presented and finished to a high specification with bespoke bedroom furniture and wardrobes, oak doors throughout, a stunning oak staircase with a wine store below, top quality bathrooms and a newly fitted kitchen with granite surfaces, an island, oak finish flooring and quality integrated Siemens appliances including wine fridge, Quooker, oven, microwave and warming drawer and a US style fridge freezer. The dining kitchen is open plan into the sitting room with a gas wood-burner' in a stone fireplace and French doors opening to the rear breakfast terrace and gardens.
The open plan hallway leads into the dining hall and a cloakroom with WC faces the entrance door. A well appointed utility room lies off the kitchen with oak door cupboards, a Belfast sink and granite surfaces.
Double bifold doors open through to the dining hall with its oak staircase, wine store and double French doors to the rear terrace. Oak double doors then lead to the lounge, another double aspect room, with French doors to the rear gardens and a stunning marble fireplace surround with a log effect living gas fire.
The three reception rooms create an amazing entertaining space but equally can be closed off to create separate cosy rooms and all have dual aspects, open to the rear terrace and are light and airy.
The first floor is as impressive as the ground floor, with beautifully appointed bedrooms, all with views over the gardens and Glebe land. With bespoke wardrobes and bedroom furniture there is plenty of storage space augmented by under eaves box rooms. The fourth bedroom is fitted out for use as a home office with a range of filing and storage cupboards, along with a sofa bed for occasional bedroom use. The three well presented bathrooms all have under-floor heating.
The guest suite is especially generous and includes an en suite bathroom with a separate shower, as has the house bathroom, while the vaulted principal bedroom has a dressing room and an ensuite shower room.
Glebe House stands behind a lawn and wide stone flagged driveway leading to the heated double garage with an insulated double roller style door and a Belfast sink. Wide double doors open from the rear of the garage to the gardens and a stone built workshop/store with light and power lies separately at the rear. Perfect for storing garden furniture and gardening equipment. A garden lighting system is installed to show the gardens in the evening. There are two bridges over Spencer Brook and the gardens are notable for their birdsong.

One of my favourite Prestbury houses, tucked away in a private setting but located just off the pretty village centre. Perhaps the ultimate 'Lock up and leave' property.Andrew ThorpeProperty agent
