About this property

  • No. 27 Glebelands, built in 1982 and extended considerably in 1998, is one of a handful of family homes set in the heart of the popular village of Bidborough on this broad and sweeping hillside cul-de-sac.

    Set well back from the road and fronted by a delightful west-facing terraced front garden, the house occupies an elevated position and enjoys far-reaching views across the valley towards Speldhurst.

    The accommodation is set over two floors with three of the four bedrooms enjoying the spectacular views to the front. The largest of these is the master bedroom, with walk-in wardrobe and en suite shower room, which forms the top floor area of the two storey extension.

    The living space of the ground floor is flexible and well-proportioned. In its current configuration the well-lit sitting room, with open fireplace, and conservatory take full advantage of the west-facing front aspect and a spacious kitchen/breakfast room looks out to the rear. A study, with fitted desking and storage, a dining room, utility room and a cloakroom complete the accommodation.

    Outside:
    A great asset of this property is the striking gardens. The front garden provides space and privacy, with steps and banked lawns leading down to the road from a larger terrace of lawn closer to the house. A raised platform to the side, with a shady pergola, provides a wonderful seating area for day-long and evening sun.

    To the rear the charming back garden steps up towards a hedged boundary with the High Street and the historic church beyond. A series of terraced beds, with a fenced potting area in the top corner, nestle into the bank and offer several further seating areas.

    The property benefits from a single garage at the foot of the front garden.
