Tenure: Freehold

A substantial 4 bedroom family home, surrounded by beautiful countryside. Self contained one bedroom annex. 30' Double garage. Set in delightful gardens with open views all around. In all about 0.413 acres.

Situated down a quiet road in the picturesque hamlet of Folke, Glebe House was built in the 1950’s and was originally the vicarage. As seen from the floor plan it provides extremely flexible accommodation which would meet a range of requirements. With an adjoining, self-contained 1 bedroom apartment there is potential for fabulous guest accommodation, annexe for a family member, income from holiday rental or spacious home office.

Accommodation
The entrance porch leads into the hallway, with attractive wooden staircase to the first floor.

The kitchen/breakfast room has a lovely country feel, with an Aga stove and patio doors to the garden. The main reception is a bright and sunny, good size room, with fireplace, full height doors and windows and opening to the fabulous garden room. This again has full height doors and windows on all sides making the most of the beautiful views. There are two further reception rooms providing a dining room and study/home office.

Also to the ground floor is a large utility room and cloakroom.

On the first floor is a spacious landing with window to the front and hatch to the loft providing excellent storage space.

Bedrooms one and two both enjoy en suite facilities. Bedroom three has patio doors leading to a charming balcony overlooking the garden and countryside around – the perfect spot for morning coffee. The family bathroom is fitted with a bath with shower over, wash hand basin, low level wc and large airing cupboard, and is shared with bedroom four.

The apartment has its own front door, but is also accessed via the dining room to the lobby, with stairs leading to a small landing. To the rear is the kitchen/dining/living room – the kitchen area is fitted with a range of floor units with sink, integral electric oven and hob and space for fridge/freezer. The living area enjoys delightful views. To the front is the double bedroom with en suite shower, toilet and wash hand basin.

Outside
The property is accessed via a wooden 5 bar gate to a tarmac driveway with parking for several cars, and access to the large double garage – a dream for a car enthusiast or hobby requiring a good size workshop area. There is access from the garage direct to the house, along with double doors at the rear leading to the gardens.

The gardens are a delightful feature of Glebe House, and have been beautifully maintained by the current owners. There is a good size lawn with attractive pond and a number of large beds planted with a wonderful array of flowers, shrubs and mature trees. There is a working vegetable garden, a green house, large wood store and a number of fruit trees.

The property adjoins open countryside and there are far reaching views over the Blackmore Vale towards Bulbarrow.



The hamlet of Folke has a charming sixteenth-century church, abandoned medieval settlement and small friendly golf club. It is just three miles from the ancient Abbey town of Sherborne with its excellent range of shops and facilities, including a number of independent shops, 2 supermarkets, sports facilities and the railway station - on the direct line to London Waterloo. Yeovil, which is 6 miles away, has a good choice of larger stores, supermarkets and industrial parks.

The area is very well known for its excellent choice of schools, both independent and state, and as one would expect there is a host of sporting, walking and riding opportunities close by.
