An individual and beautifully appointed Cotswold village house in a stunning setting.
Glebe House is a contemporary take on a Cotswold village house originally built in 1971. The property enjoys beautifully appointed accommodation over three stories with the main body of accommodation on the first and second floors. The property has been designed to maximise the enjoyment of the elevated views over the village and surrounding countryside and has well-proportioned and flexible accommodation extending to approximately 2289 sqft. In 2006 the house had been painstakingly renovated with the sympathetic renovation incorporating high quality finishes throughout, including Forbes & Lomax light switches and plugs, stone and oak flooring. Bathrooms received Barber Wilsons & Co, Drummond and Lefory Brooks sanitary-ware and under floor heating throughout. There are beautiful formal gardens with impressive terracing, woodland and a secret garden with ancillary accommodation.
Formal access to the property is via the entrance hall which also gives access to the study/further possible bedroom and to the integral garage. Adjacent to the garage is a former orchid growing room which now provides useful and sizeable storage space.
The first floor has under floor heating throughout, and provides sumptuous accommodation enjoying the outstanding elevated views. The tall windows provide good natural light throughout and there are lovely features including exposed beam work, stone mullioned windows and natural stone flooring. The stunning kitchen and breakfast room features bespoke floor and wall mounted furniture by Chalon together with integrated Miele Appliances and 4 oven Aga. Beyond is a useful utility room and rear entrance point. The dining room features French doors opening up to a Juliette balcony, optimising the elevated views. Situated opposite is the guest cloakroom. The sitting room is beautifully proportioned and centred by an elegant fireplace. Beyond is a good sized garden room providing informal accommodation and an outstanding aspect over the village. Double doors give access to the terrace and gardens.
The second floor accommodates two lavish bedroom suites with under floor heating throughout. The master bedroom itself enjoys an open terraced seating / observation area, accessed via French doors.
Glebe House is situated to the top of the village enjoying pretty grounds including formal gardens, woodland and a secret garden feature. Drystone wall, terraced gardens and stone steps lead to the woodland which has established pathways providing delightful aspects of Snowshill. The large stone terrace leading from the garden room features a raised pond, impressive beds and topiary. Further steps lead up to a further enclosed terrace currently used as a dining and seating area. Beyond this terraced area is access to the secret garden. This magical feature has a wildlife pool with waterfalls, rock courses and summer house. At the head of this feature is a hand hewn log cabin providing ancillary accommodation or hidden office.
Access to the property is via a private driveway with power to connect automated gates if required. Stone steps lead to the front door and a further flight up to the terraced area and garden room. There is also pedestrian access from the lane to the first floor level.
