A handsome character home set within beautifully maintained mature gardens.
Glebe House is an attractive brick-built property dating back to 1835, which was a former Vicarage and which retains much of its period character. Internally the house has grand proportions, with generously sized rooms, high ceilings, tall windows and original details such as picture rails and large fireplaces which make the internal dimensions seem even larger. The expansive kitchen/breakfast room which joins the main house to the garage and annexe is a newer addition, with a pitched ceiling and a contemporary fireplace; vast sliding glazed doors and Velux windows in the roof let in an impressive amount of natural light. This space serves as the heart of the family home, with areas for the kitchen, a table for sociable family meals and a seating area in front of the fire. The rest of the house has a more traditional feel, thanks to heritage colours, coving and ceiling roses and internal shutters.
The substantial layout extends to about 4500 sq ft over three floors, including a storage area in the basement. The ground floor is entered via a long hallway which runs front to back and leads to the formal dining room and drawing rooms, an office, breakfast room and through to the kitchen/dining room. This has an adjoining utility room which in turn provides access to the separate annexe. Upstairs there are four good-size double bedrooms, all with en suite facilities. The annexe is a very useful self-contained space arranged over two floors, comprising a lounge, kitchen, bathroom and bedroom upstairs, and a further en suite bedroom downstairs. It is ideally suited to guests, older children or grandparents.
Externally the property is set within approximately 2 acres of mature gardens. The approach is via a sweeping gravel driveway which leads up to a large parking area and the attached double garage. The gardens feature a variety of mature trees, well-stocked herbaceous borders and manicured lawns. There is also a good-size grass paddock.
