Driveway
Glebe Royal is accessed from a quiet countryside lane through a charming five-bar wooden gate that opens onto a sweeping driveway. This driveway winds its way around the expansive outbuildings, leading to a spacious gravel parking area capable of accommodating multiple vehicles. Additionally, there is a separate entrance from the driveway that leads directly to the courtyard.


Entrance
A block-paved pathway runs alongside the house from the driveway, providing access to the entrance. A distinctive old-style lamp post adds a touch of elegance and illuminates the parking area in the evenings. There are open spaces on either side of the property that lead directly to the beautifully maintained lawns surrounding the house.


Boot room
Upon entering through the front door, you will find a versatile entrance hallway that also serves as a boot room. This welcoming space features quarry tiled flooring, a Butler-style sink with a wooden drainer and a mixer tap. Two windows offer a view of the front and a further door leads to an internal hallway.

From here, you can access the snug and various other rooms, including the dining room, kitchen breakfast room and cloakroom.


Snug
There is a delightful snug with a window and door to the rear. Further features include a staircase leading to the first floor, quality wooden flooring, intricately detailed ceiling cornices and a log burner set atop a tiled hearth as the room’s focal point. There is also a door leading to the sitting room.


Sitting room
The sitting room, located on the left-hand side of the property, is exceptionally light and spacious. It features triple aspect windows that flood the room with natural light. The wooden flooring continues from the snug and a delightful stove takes centre stage on a granite hearth.


Kitchen
Returning to the inner hallway, a part-stained glass door on the right opens into a stunning country-style kitchen breakfast room. This well-equipped kitchen boasts base units with granite worktops, including a Belfast-style sink with a mixer tap. A beautiful Stanley oven is nestled between the kitchen units, surrounded by brick and tiles with a wooden beam above, creating a charming culinary space. Additional features include quality wooden flooring, recessed ceiling spotlights, an integrated wine rack, an Aga, fridge and freezer. This room is bathed in natural light through its triple aspect windows and a side door conveniently accesses the garden.


Utility Room
Adjacent to the kitchen is a well-equipped utility room, accessed through another part-stained glass door. The utility room features base units with work surfaces, a sink with a drainer and flexi-hose mixer tap and ample space under the counter for a washing machine, dryer and dishwasher. Wooden flooring and dual aspect windows to the front and side complete the room.


Dining Room

A convenient cloakroom comprising a low-level WC, washbasin set upon worktop, quarry tiled flooring and a side window completes this level.


First Floor
Ascending the staircase to the first floor, you will find a wonderfully spacious and well-lit landing with two front windows that provide beautiful views over the courtyard. The landing offers access to the family bathroom and four bedrooms.


Master Bedroom
The master bedroom is a generously sized double room with dual aspect windows offering far-reaching views. This exquisite master suite has an adjoining dressing area with doors leading to a sizable walk-in wardrobe and an ensuite shower room. The ensuite includes a low-level WC, a washbasin and a spacious walk-in shower cubicle with a rainfall shower head and a separate hand-held shower attachment. The walls and flooring are tiled and there is a rear-facing window.


Bedrooms Two, Three and Four
To the left of the landing is another generously sized double room with windows to the rear and side, a fitted wardrobe and an ornate fireplace.

The remaining bedrooms are both located at the front of the property. One is a good sized double room with triple aspect windows, while the other is an excellent-sized single room with front and side windows. Both bedrooms feature ornate fireplaces.


Family Bathroom
A well-appointed family bathroom serves the bedrooms and includes a stylish suite with a low-level WC, a washbasin set upon a vanity unit, a Jacuzzi style bathtub and a separate shower cubicle with a rainfall shower head and a separate hand-held shower attachment. Recessed spotlights, wall and floor tiling and a front-facing window complete the ensemble.



Gardens and Grounds
The gardens surrounding Glebe Royal are a true delight. French doors from the dining room lead to a patio, perfect for al fresco dining. The manicured lawns have been thoughtfully landscaped and include beds with an array of trees and shrubbery that provide interest throughout the year, including mature apple, pear and damson fruit trees. A gravel pathway and steps lead down to gently tiered lawns.

Beyond the immediate gardens lies a vast expanse of lawn with a park-like atmosphere, adorned with mature trees and extending to a stunning lake, offering a tranquil setting to enjoy the natural surroundings. Another patio near the lake provides an additional spot for relaxation.

A walled garden located by the house features low box hedging, creating a traditional garden style commonly found in this type of setting. The land bordering the garden has been divided into three paddocks, ideal for equestrian use, complemented by stabling located near the courtyard.

The magnificent grounds include a range of quality brick outbuildings with pitched tiled roofs situated around a courtyard. The first outbuilding comprises two garages, a useful store, a wood store and a granary store on the second level of one of the garages. These outbuildings are perfect for car enthusiasts and those involved in animal husbandry, offering dry storage for feed and bedding.

The second outbuilding, located on the other side of the courtyard, will appeal to those seeking an equestrian property. It includes two stables, a tack room, a WC and a spacious carport.
