Nestled on the crest of Glebe Hill in Tucker's Town, The Glebe House commands a crowning position on just over an acre of some of the most coveted residential land in Bermuda, overlooking Mid Ocean Golf Course, Tucker's Point Club and Bermuda's breathtaking South Shore.
Designed by a protege of Frank Lloyd Wright, built in 1960 with tasteful upgrades over the years, this distinguished home was the private retreat of a former Governor of Bermuda. Combining elegance with practicality, the home is perfectly suited for entertaining on both grand and intimate scales, and comprises: covered entrance leading to a formal entry foyer. Then a cypress and marble staircase leads downstairs to the two-story living room with a beautiful fireplace and views of the South Shore. Or take the elevator if you prefer. There are a wet bar and powder room, and to the east of the drawing room is the oval dining room, enhanced by large windows, marble floors and a dramatic Bermuda stone atrium. To the west of the living/drawing room is a cozy wood-paneled library with fireplace and glass doors leading to a large covered patio and cocktail lawn.
The kitchen has been completely renovated with entertaining in mind - two dishwashers, three ovens, sub zero fridge and freezer, warming drawers, trash compactor and more. There is generous closet and storage space throughout this lovely home, five bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms, several staff/guest apartments, a luxurious pear-shaped pool and pool house with kitchen, and always VIEWS, VIEWS, VIEWS!
