An impressive and exceptional Georgian family home on the fringes of the Dartmoor National Park. This spectacularly renovated historic manor house dates back to 1650 and is set in beautiful, secluded, mature gardens.

The spectacular 9 bedroom, 9 bathroom residence offers a flexible opportunity for a lifestyle earning potential and has excellent access to the main cities of Exeter and Plymouth.

Originally the site of a farmhouse, in 1865 it became a manor house and in 1945 Glazebrook House was owned by naval commander Algernon Edmund Penrice-Lyon. Latterly in 1970 it was converted into an iconic hotel and in 2014 went through a major remodel and refurbishment using creative interiors courtesy of acclaimed interior designer Timothy Oulton.

An imposing entrance with symmetrical floor to ceiling windows graciously placed on either side, opens on to the entrance hall with a staircase worthy of a movie set creating the focal point.
Adjacent to the hall are elegant entertaining rooms each have been beautifully and sensitively restored by the current owners to create decadent yet warm spaces. Following the staircase up you discover the indulgent bedrooms and bathrooms as well as extra versatile entertaining spaces. Below the house is an impressive wine cellar with extra rooms for storage.

The magic begins as you turn off the lane onto the private driveway, lined with mature shrubs and borders which provide seclusion. The house slowly reveals itself, smart terraces, fountains, formal lawned areas and vegetable gardens, approximately 3 acres in all. These are immaculately maintained, well stocked and provide a variety of experiences to match the interior, the perfect setting for Glazebrook House. At the rear are informal magical woodland areas with magnolias and rhododendron as well as an old stone outbuilding which could create a wonderful folly.

Glazebrook House is set within the fringes of The Dartmoor National Park. The contrasting beauty of the moody, craggy tors and gentle woodland glades interwoven by streams and rivers is a magical setting. To the south you have access to all the coves and beaches of the South Hams. All within easy access of the pretty village of South Brent approximately 1 mile, that hosts all the amenities one needs, schools, doctors, shops including a delicatessen, butcher and pubs. Ashburton and Totnes are both a short drive away. The house sits between the naval port city of Plymouth and the cathedral city of Exeter, each offering extensive cultural, recreational and educational facilities. Exeter has an international airport and Totnes, along with both cities, are supported by mainline train services to London.
