About this property

  • Glenbrae is a beautiful Victorian house thought to date back to 1890, set in stunning and extensive gardens. The principal reception rooms are front facing on the ground floor, with outlooks over the garden. The most impressive room in the house is the newly-created open-plan kitchen / dining / family room. This was once two separate rooms which have recently been opened up to create this wonderful, bright room. It has windows to the front and side of the house, with integrated appliances including a Bosch combi oven / microwave and electric oven, Bosch induction hob, warming drawer and dishwasher. There is also a new Esse log burner in the family area. The utility room sits to the rear of this room and is plumbed for laundry appliances, and there is also a pantry store. The sitting room sits across the entrance hall and has a large front-facing bay window, fireplace with marble hearth and surround, and traditional decorative cornicing. The adjacent home office had a door which connects the main house to the guest apartment. A WC sits off the hall.

    The first floor is approached by a curving stone staircase from the entrance hall which leads up to the landing above which has a decorative ceiling arch. The principal bedroom overlooks the front garden through a west facing bay window, and a further window to the south, both with working shutters. It has fitted wardrobes and an en suite shower room. There are three further double bedrooms off the landing, as well as a bathroom and a shower room. The latter was converted from a single bedroom and installed in 2024. It has a contemporary finish with twin wash hand basins, WC and walk in shower.

The front garden has a band of mature and attractive evergreen woodland along the boundary, offering privacy and shelter from Glen Road. From the front of the house, steps lead down onto a generous lawn.

There are various soft fruit bushes, and the garden trees include a particularly attractive apple tree. To the south of the house is a greenhouse, and there is a pedestrian gate onto Leewood Road.
