About this property

    Glebe Farm House is a wonderful example of a most attractive Georgian family home, enjoying an edge of village position.

    The house has undergone a sympathetic renovation to create a welcoming family home and provides income opportunities with three self contained cottages...

    The property boasts an impressive Georgian façade and the current owners were able to extend the house in 2009 to retain the character features whilst creating spacious accommodation.

    The entrance hall leads to all principal rooms on the ground floor including a dining room with a striking fireplace and an impressive bay window enjoying views over the front garden beyond. There is also a beautiful library with a door providing access to one of the self contained annexes. The open plan kitchen/dining/living room features an impressive Bryan Turner kitchen, exposed beams and a wood burner. Other noteworthy rooms to the ground floor include a snug, utility room, boot room and cloakroom.

    All six bedrooms are on the first floor, four of which have en suite shower rooms and a separate family bathroom.

    Glebe Cottage can be accessed either via the main house or via a private entrance to the side. It provides open plan living/kitchen, separate utility and ground floor cloakroom. The first floor provides two bedrooms and a shower room.

    Carriage Cottage has an open plan kitchen/living room and two bedrooms and a shower room to the first floor.

    Bridle Cottage is the smaller of the three cottages and provides an open plan living room/kitchen area with a shower room and a bedroom to the first floor.

    Each cottage has parking and is set in its own fenced garden.

    Glebe Farm House is situated on a country lane and is approached via a drive that leads through mature trees before passing lawned areas to parking at the side of the house. There is also an additional driveway to the rear of the property providing further parking and also serves the cottages.

    The property sits in a central position and is surrounded by lawned gardens with mature shrubberies and trees. There is a patio area off the kitchen which provides a wonderful outside dining and entertaining space. In all the property sits in about 2.5 acres.

    There is a further 9.26 acres of land available by separate negotiation.

What I admire most about this package of property is the adaptability, it can provide an income, it can accommodate multi-gen living, it could do both of these at the same time! A lot of options.
