A modern, family home enjoying a unique setting in this highly coveted location in the heart of the Kent countryside
The Glebe is a small and select development set in parkland grounds, tucked away from sight off Fordcombe Road on the edge of the picturesque village of Penshurst.
Number 11 has been in our client's ownership for over twenty years and provides generous, well-proportioned and light-filled accommodation arranged over three floors. The house is in good decorative order, but now provides an exciting opportunity for gradual updating.
The reception hall leads to the kitchen/breakfast room to the front of the house, which offers good storage and preparation space with a range of integrated appliances and a breakfast bar for more informal dining.
The very welcoming open-plan reception room can be arranged as required; this generous room overlooks and opens out to the terrace and the established and impressive communal grounds beyond. Our clients have both a sitting area with fireplace and a further dining table for more formal entertaining.
The house offers four bedrooms, with two large doubles on the first and second floors, both overlooking the gardens. There is a further modest double room on each floor, with three of the bedrooms benefitting from fitted wardrobes. Completing the accommodation is a shower room on the first floor and a bathroom on the second.
The views over the communal grounds and surrounding countryside only get better as you travel up through the house. The attic provides good storage space and potential, subject to any necessary planning consents.
The Glebe sits in roughly six and a half acres of grounds which include a croquet lawn, football pitch, wildlife meadow and children's play area. Whilst all grounds are communal, the residents can be as keenly involved as they wish in maintaining the areas immediately to the front and rear of their homes.
11 The Glebe comes with twin garages en bloc.

The Glebe really is a hidden gem, an exciting chance to put your own twist on this spacious modern house in a wonderful setting. The property is a delightful permanent home, but could be a weekend country retreat, or given the ease of maintenance, with well maintained communal grounds, even a "lock up and leave"! The lifestyle on offer here needs to be viewed to be fully appreciated.Mike ChurchillProperty agent
