A detached family home in a picturesque location on the edge of the popular North Cornwall village of St Mabyn.
Standing in its own tree lined grounds, The Glebe Cottage combines the tranquility of its rural setting with the convenience of being within a short walk of the centre of the village. A private path from the garden leads across glebe fields to the garden of St Mabyn Inn.
Entry through the front door leads into a hall with a turning staircase straight ahead. On the left is a dual aspect drawing room with open fireplace and attractive fitted alcove shelves. The ceiling is a renovation of the original with authentic rose and cornice design. This applies throughout the house.
A discreet door leads through to a ground floor bedroom with en suite shower room, which has its own external door to the drive and is used for guest accommodation.
Across the hall the elegant dining room is spacious enough for entertaining around a large table and is also dual aspect, with French doors to the south facing patio and pergola. The adjoining kitchen is well equipped, maximising fitted storage space. The stove and oven are by De Dietrich. The kitchen faces south and has a beautiful view across the garden to the fields beyond.
A corridor leads into the renovated, spacious utility room, to the rear entrance and impressively, the purpose-built studio that is currently used for rehearsing and producing music. Wide, glazed patio doors take advantage of the garden aspect, while heavy duty insulation ensures that the single storey room maintains a pleasant temperature throughout the year.
Upstairs, the three double bedrooms are filled with natural light and are of comfortable proportions. The views of pasture and woodland are lovely. The family bathroom and en suites benefit from the new high-pressure plumbing system feeding the power showers. The principal bedroom suite incorporates an en suite shower room, an office and storage alcoves. There are two large storage and airing cupboards along the landing.

This very special home in a favoured North Cornish village is one of very few in the area to command such privacy, whilst also being just a short distance from the local amenities.Chris Clifford
