Property description

Tenure: Freehold

Glebe House is one of the finest houses situated in the popular Pelhams, an area of unspoilt rural Hertfordshire countryside. The house is believed to date back to 1738, a Grade II Listed building of architectural and historical interest. Most of the fine original features remain and the property provides excellent well planned family accommodation laid out over three floors together with a large cellar.

Of particular note is the Drawing Room, centred on an attractive open fireplace with views over the mature gardens to the rear of the house and double doors opening through to the Sitting Room/Cinema Room. The kitchen has been extended over the years and now provides comfortable dining and sitting areas as well as an oil fired Aga. The bedroom accommodation is comfortably arranged over two floors with the principal suite extending across the whole of the first floor incorporating a newly installed bathroom.

The gardens and grounds provide a mature and tranquil setting for the house, laid mostly to lawn, studded with a selection of mature trees. There is a swimming pool and an all-weather tennis court both in need of repair.

Situated across the lane is a level, paddock of approximately 0.75 acre
