GLEBE HOUSE
Originally constructed circa 1817 for the Incumbent Vicars of St. Thomas, Glebe House represents the meticulous craftsmanship of late-Georgian style and elegance.
Commanding attention with its stately presence, this distinguished home extends to approximately 372 sq. ft (4,000 sq.ft) and is situated on 1.6 acres of mature grounds.
A set of electric security Wrought Iron gates marked by limestone piers opens to a gravelled driveway bordered by spring bulbs, including delicate snowdrops, vibrant bluebells, and daffodils complimented by avenue lighting, outdoor security lights and sockets. As one approaches the property, the main residence emerges with its imposing facade, characterised by a single-bay projecting porch and large picture windows. This all sets the scene for what lies within. Granite steps lead to the front period door which opens to the entrance porch with two arched sash windows on either side. From here one is lead to the impressive hallway which serves a prelude to the splendour that awaits, with its high ceilings, original tiled flooring, elegant cornicing along with panelled arches which all lends an air of grandeur and sophistication.
On the right, is the opulent dining room boasting its original Kilkenny marble fireplace and intricate decorative coving, offering an ideal setting for both formal gatherings and intimate dinner parties. Across from it lies the drawing room, fitted with another exquisite marble fireplace and a large picture window with working shutters. Flooded with natural light from the bay window at the end of the room, which also provides access to outside, this room serves as an ideal space for relaxation and entertaining. Continuing on, is the indulgent library, a sanctuary for book lovers or even a place to play a game of chess. This inviting space features custom-built bookcases with intricate detailing. Additionally, thoughtfully integrated cabinets offer convenient storage solutions for essential items, including a designated space for a computer and printer.
Moving on is the sitting room which features an original cast-iron Gas operating fireplace and pitch pine flooring. This space provides a cosy retreat for quiet evenings spent in front of the fire. This welcoming space flows seamlessly into the newly fitted kitchen with new appliances and a Quooker tap. Notably, the walls of the kitchen are insulated, ensuring energy efficiency without compromising on style or functionality. Off the kitchen lies a fully fitted utility room which has an abundance of storage space. A backstairs leading to an upstairs bedroom is also to be found off the kitchen along with a plate and cold room. The main family bathroom with its timber panelling underfloor heating and luxurious freestanding cast iron roll topped bath provides the ideal space for relaxation.
The impressive staircase ascends to the first floor via a light-filled gallery landing with a triple picture window and a large glass dome overhead which allows natural light to enter the stairwell during the day. There are five spacious bedrooms on this level, each bedroom is a sanctuary in its own right, offering tastefully finished ensuite bathrooms in all, original fireplaces, and traditional window shutters that add to the property's old-world charm and character.

GARDENS & GROUNDS

Outside, the grounds of Glebe House are a testament to the current owners with its meticulous care and attention.

The courtyard area boasts a freestanding permanent barbeque/fire and is a suntrap and oasis of versatility, housing a laundry room, sheds, stables, a coach house, a workshop, and a charming garden room, each space thoughtfully designed to complement the property's historic charm and meet the needs of modern living. Notably, the property benefits from an office conversion over the barn with electric heating.
