Former Manse with walled garden overlooking the River Tweed

About this property

  • Originally built as the manse to the Kirk in 1790 and later extended in 1902, Glebe House has been in private ownership for over 50 years. The house is in the Georgian style with later Edwardian additions, and has well proportioned rooms which retain original features including plaster cornice work and working timber shutters.

    The front door opens into an Edwardian tiled porch with double doors leading through to the large reception hall. The drawing room with its original fireplace is an elegant double aspect room with views to the meadow. The sitting room/library looks out towards the walled garden and has a fireplace and built in bookcases. Adjacent to the kitchen is a family sitting room, which could also be a formal dining room or playroom.

    The kitchen, with its stunning porcelain-tiled floor and complementary granite surfaces, is fitted with bespoke hand painted timber cabinetry surrounding a large oak central island.. There is an LPG-fired racing green four door AGA with a pulley above. A door leads to the spacious utility room with oak work surface and cabinetry and Villeroy and Boch sink. The Amdega garden room with dual aspect provides an additional dining space and can be accessed from the kitchen or drawing room.

    An elegant staircase leads to the spacious landing flooded with natural light. The first floor has five bedrooms and three bathrooms with loft access to the attic via a Ramsey ladder from the landing.

    The double garage has ample space for two cars plus a workshop area. There is a gardener's shower room with a WC next to the boiler room. Above the garage is a large games room which could be fitted out to create a spacious home office.

    The Garden and Grounds

    Picturesque grounds surround the property with lawns, mature trees, a wildlife pond, woodland and walled garden. The gravel driveway to the house can be accessed via post and rail gates at either side of the property and has a turning circle to the front of the house.

    The walled garden is laid out in a geometrical pattern of four lawns divided by gravel paths and a circular pond in the centre. Around the perimeter are four well-stocked borders containing a significant number of specimen plants. There is a log store in the wood and a potting shed in the walled garden with power and light and an outside tap.
