Property Description

Glebe House has a long history with parts of it dating back over 300 years. Built, and used for most of its life as a rectory, it moved into private hands in the 1980s and has undergone an extensive programme of renovation since then with some wonderful further improvements undertaken by the current owners. The accommodation on offer is extensive and will happily suit the needs of even the largest of families. Encompassing in the region of 10,000 sq ft, all of the bedroom suites provide spacious accommodation whilst the reception rooms are a particular highlight and enhancements to the lounge and dining area have resulted in magnificent open plan space. The leisure complex featuring a gym space and indoor pool have been a popular addition, whilst the gardens are a delight - enclosed within high granite walls, they extend to just over a vergee and enjoy excellent privacy. Finally there is a car port to one side, also providing useful storage space, and parking for numerous cars.
