Property Description

This modern home known as Lower Glebelands is believed to date back to the 1970’s and has highly flexible accommodation which would suit a range of buyers. The layout can be adopted with ease and therefore multi-generational families, as well as those who work from home will find it of great appeal. Our clients have been in residence for some 28 years and during that time they have enjoyed the benefit of developing the wonderful productive gardens and enjoyed being part of the vibrant village community. Today the property is a blank canvas and ready for the incoming buyer to be able to put their own stamp on how they wish to use it, whilst updating the accommodation. The outside space encompasses two pasture paddocks, as well as many large outbuildings, workshops, stores and stables. The setting is peaceful with much wildlife sharing in the tranquil environment.
