A beautiful Edwardian country home set within an enviable rural location.
Glewstone Rise is an outstanding Edwardian home situated within an idyllic rural setting. Engulfed by beautifully landscaped formal gardens, the far-reaching rural views are to be admired from all aspects.
With an abundance of charm and character, the features are notable and include original fireplaces, deep bay windows and traditional coving. The light and airy accommodation is in good decorative order, combining modern living with an authentic country-style way of life.
Entered by way of an inviting reception hall, the decor enjoys a heritage colour palette with use of natural materials. The sitting room and dining room are to the east wing, both of which afford pleasant views over the gardens and associated grounds. The kitchen is equipped with a comprehensive range of units, granite worktops and AGA. The dining space provides an ideal place to host informal gatherings and has the benefit of French doors opening to the side terrace. In addition there is a fitted utility room and separate boiler room.
The snug, perfect for those winter evenings, leads to a full height glass conservatory and a remarkable drawing room which is fitted with a contemporary log burning stove. Arguably the heart of the home, it has the ability to host a number of guests whilst retaining a warm and welcoming feel. A formal study is located to rear, accessed via a privacy door it benefits from attractive, restful views. There is also a spacious cellar ideal for storage.
The first floor consists of five superb bedrooms all of which have full height ceilings, a popular characteristic of an Edwardian build. The principal suite has a spectacular balcony, a spacious en suite bathroom and a walk in dressing room. Bedroom two has use of a well appointed en suite, whilst the three further bedrooms are served by an attractive shower room. The second floor has the benefit of a further bedroom together with an additional en suite and useful storage to the eaves.
The gardens, land and associated views are wonderous. The approach is courtesy of a cascading private drive that sweeps to the principal entrance. Laid to lawn interspersed with mature trees, herbaceous beds and established hedging, the elevated position affords views as far as the eye can see. There are many themed areas, a manicured paved terrace sits adjacent to a tennis court and leads to the adjoining woodland. The formal gardens mirror the front aspect and are laid to lawn, complimented by extensive borders and exacting hedgerow.
An attractive lodge sits on the initial approach, detached - it consists of two bedrooms, sitting room, kitchen and two shower rooms. Currently occupied, it makes for an ideal rental or holiday let.

It's rather difficult to say - almost impossible, to pinpoint my favorite part of this utterly charming home. The gardens, views and accommodation are a match for one another - I invite you to be the judge!Phil BatesProperty agent
