Full description

One of the best private residences in Glastonbury Abbots Leigh was originally part of Glastonbury Abbey The garden borders the grounds of the Abbey within which there is a meditation area, a fire garden and a two bedroom cottage.

Abbots Leigh was originally part of Glastonbury Abbey and remained so until the early 1800's. It has a striking front red brick facade and is an elegant and immaculately presented house with many period features including sash windows, open fireplaces, pretty cornicing and ceiling roses in most of the principal reception rooms. The Orangery is an impressive addition, built by David Salisbury in 2011. The house provides excellent family accommodation with 2 bedroom suites, 3 further double bedrooms and an impressive family bathroom. There are two further attic rooms (one is currently used as a small cinema room). Lying within the grounds is the detached 2 bedroom cottage, ideal for dependent relatives or staff. The main area of garden lies at the rear of the house and is predominantly walled with a large flagstone terrace adjacent to the Orangery - excellent for alfresco dining. The garden borders the grounds of Glastonbury Abbey with excellent views over it.
