Elegant country house in fine rural setting


The Glebe House occupies a prime elevated position on the outskirts of the village of Carstairs. The property has beautiful open aspects to surrounding farmland and beyond to Tinto Hill and the border hills. The village of Carstairs is approximately 5 miles from the county town of Lanark and 11 miles from Biggar. There are excellent facilities via road and railway and Carstairs is served by Carstairs railway station which is on both the east and west coast mainlines and takes approximately 30 minutes to both Glasgow and Edinburgh. London is approximately 5 and a half hours via Edinburgh, however the direct London sleeper train calls at Carstairs station most nights throughout the year. The village of Carstairs has an excellent range of professional services including a doctor's surgery, pharmacy, food stores and a post office.


The Glebe House is an elegant Georgian listed mansion built in 1820 by William Burn. A former manse which still contains a wealth of original features, the house and its outbuildings have been regularly upgraded over recent years. The excellently presented accommodation on the ground floor is decorated in authentic period shades and begins with a grand entrance hallway with wonderfully intricate original mosaic tile flooring. Off the reception hallway is a staircase which leads to the wine cellar in the basement. The drawing room has a beautiful bay window to the front with a magnificent white marble fireplace as its focal point and the formal dining room has an imposing black marble fireplace. The accommodation on the ground floor is completed by a well proportioned dining sized kitchen with a two oven green Aga at its heart, with a utility room, pantry, store room, larder and downstairs toilet off. A splendid staircase with wrought iron banisters and a polished mahogany balustrade sweeps up from the reception hall to the first floor. Here there are three well proportioned and spacious double sized bedrooms, bedroom four/sitting room and family bathroom. The mid landing former maid's bedroom could be utilised as a fifth bedroom,

The gardens surrounding The Glebe House are a credit to the current owner and are surrounded by a wide variety of mature trees and shrubs providing additional screening and privacy. There is a former croquet lawn to the front garden. The rear garden has a courtyard and walled surround with a range of outbuildings which were reroofed circa 2000. These include a garage doors, stable and woodshed/coal shed. There are lovely open aspects to the surrounding countryside beyond the beautifully-tended gardens.

Square Footage: 2,669 sq ft
