About this property

  • Glebe House is situated in a generous plot in the hillside village of Bourton-on-the-Hill. The property offers great potential for the next owner to extend and modernise to create a fantastic home.

    The property is entered via a spacious entrance hall which leads through to a double aspect sitting room with a bay window overlooking the south-facing garden. Double doors open into the garden. A formal dining room opens to a large conservatory providing further valuable living space with views over the garden. Between the sitting room and the dining room is a good study. The kitchen is fitted with a range of floor and base units and leads to a utility room and walk in pantry.

    Stairs rise to the first floor where there are four excellent double bedrooms, one with en suite bathroom, which all take advantage of south facing views over the surrounding countryside. There is also a bathroom and a shower room.
    A further flight of stairs lead to the second floor which currently provides extensive storage.

    Situated away from the house is a substantial barn which is a great asset with potential for conversion to a variety of uses subject to the usual planning consents.

    The property is approached over a gravel drive leading to an ample parking area. The mature gardens, which are mainly laid to lawn with well-stocked borders, shrubs, trees and greenhouse, lie to the front and rear of the property.
