About this property

  • Hitcham Glebe occupies an idyllic location in a beautiful semi-rural setting on a no through country lane and bridleway. This delightful home has been updated and extended in recent years and offers beautifully presented accommodation. Externally the property benefits from large landscaped gardens and superb equestrian facilities with two paddocks. About 3.5 acres in all.

    On the ground floor the reception hall, with a cloakroom and stairs to the first floor, leads to a cloakroom and fully fitted study. The sitting room enjoys a triple aspect with a fireplace and woodburner. A charming library area, with bespoke built-in cabinetry, opens to the orangery and through to the kitchen/breakfast room, creating a wonderful open plan space perfect for both family life and entertaining. The orangery, designed by David Salisbury, is a natural addition and blends perfectly with its surroundings. Two sets of French doors open on to the garden and outside terrace. The kitchen enjoys an excellent range of units complemented by granite worktops, with a central island and an array of integrated appliances including a gas Aga. Just off the kitchen is a well equipped utility room and a wet room.

    On the first floor the principal bedroom enjoys a range of fitted wardrobes and an en suite shower room. There are four further bedrooms, one with an en suite shower room, together with a family bath/shower room. Bedroom five is currently organised as a study with a built-in desk.

    The property sits tucked back from the lane with a walled and gated driveway leading to the garage and providing parking for several vehicles. At the rear of the house a Yorkstone terrace gives the perfect space for relaxation and outside dining. The private and secluded landscaped gardens are a delight with an extensive area of lawn bordered by mature and well stocked flower beds, pathways and a wisteria covered pergola giving an idyllic seating spot. Of particular note is a studio/outbuilding currently used as a gym, alongside a greenhouse and log store. The garden also benefits from an irrigation system. Beyond the formal gardens, a secondary driveway gives further parking and leads to the re-surfaced outdoor manège. The adjacent stable block comprises three stables and a tack room (with WC), with electricity and a water supply to each stable. In addition are further outbuildings for storage and equipment alongside two paddocks both with a field shelter.
