Situation
Glebe House lies conveniently close to Exeter, in a rural setting at the end of a no-through road on the edge of the small village of Farringdon. The scattered village is centred on the Parish church
and village hall. In addition to the prosperous surrounding farms, the area supports a number of thriving rural businesses, including Crealy Barton Adventure Park, Hill Barton Business Park and a
thriving farm shop. Glebe House stands surrounded by mature trees, facing almost due south over its gardens and grounds with the meadow behind.
Farringdon lies to the east of Exeter convenient to, but discreetly separate from, the business opportunities and communications offered by Exeter Airport Skypark, the M5 motorway, the city
centre, with its full range of academic, commercial and retail opportunities, regional hospital and government, theatre and cinemas and multitude of restaurants, clubs and pubs.
It is also convenient for local private and state schools in Exeter, Blundells at Tiverton, Colyton Grammar to the east and its proximity to the M5 junction puts Wellington and Taunton within
a possible daily trip.

The House
The listing entry for Glebe House concludes by describing it as "an exceptionally attractive house". This portrayal applies not only to the house itself but also its surroundings and the amenity offered
by its mature grounds.
Internally the house has been sympathetically brought up to modern standards, with the four principal bedrooms each having their own bathrooms en suite. There is underfloor heating on the ground floor, whilst the accommodation retains its attractive period detailing, with tall ceilings, decorative plaster work, open fireplaces,
ornamental joinery, including panelled doors. The rooms are light and bright, with tall sash or large opening casement windows and a gracious main staircase. Outside there is a very well protected
covered terrace on the west side of the house which gets the afternoon and evening sun and overlooks the lawns and gardens beyond.

The Gardens and Grounds
The stunning, mature grounds of Glebe House include many fine parklike specimen trees, hedges, level lawns and a meandering stream crossed by several attractive bridges.
They divide into separate areas serving different parts of the property. To the west and south of the house the main formal gardens provide it's immediate setting. The fine specimen trees are
illuminated by discreet up lighters and an old lime tree accommodates a delightful tree house with rustic stair access up to it. There are also flowering shrubs including hydrangeas, rhododendrons, camellias and flowering cherry.
These formal gardens run down to the meandering stream which forms the southern boundary of Lot 1, beyond which is a 1.8 acre paddock (Lot 2) with a spinney of deciduous trees and understorey
of spring bulbs. The paddock has its own vehicular access and in one corner of it there is the hard tennis court.
To the north of the house the meadow is fringed by mature manly oak trees. The meadow is cut annually for hay, but whilst the long grass is growing, pathways have been mown to provide a delightful walk around the perimeter of the property.

here is ample parking on the gravelled drive in front of and behind the house. There is a pole barn beside the rear drive providing accommodation for garden machinery and firewood.

Method of Sale
The property is freehold and will be offered for sale with vacant possession. The property is offered as a whole, or without Lot 2. This lot is not available on its own.
