Glebe House lies conveniently close to Exeter, in a private 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 in the centre of its land, surrounded by mature trees, facing almost due south over its gardens and grounds. 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.

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 renovated to a high standard, with four principal bedrooms having their own en-suite bathrooms. There is under floor heating throughout the ground
floor except in the kitchen which has an oil fired Aga.
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 terrace on the west side of the house which has the benefit of the afternoon and evening sun overlooking the lawns and gardens beyond.

Glebe House Cottage
Adjacent to the main house but facing away from
it and with its own drive, Glebe House Cottage is
a conversion of a former farmhouse and barn. Its
antiquity and vernacular style merit Grade II
listing in its own right. The property benefits
from full residential consent, but has for the past
8 years been very successfully let as a holiday/
short break let (http://www.heaven-in-devon.
co.uk/) (marketed as Greengage Cottage)
capitalising on the quality of the conversion and
the convenient rural location close to Exeter.
The bright accommodation includes both good
sized living and dining rooms to accommodate
8 to 12 guests and four bedrooms served by 4
bathrooms (2 en suite). Outside there is plenty of
parking and protected outdoor seating areas with
access out from the house. In addition to the gardens there is a large gravel
parking area.
Lime Cottage
The single storey one bedroom cottage has been
converted from a former brick stable block. It too has been finished to a high standard and has been let either in conjunction with or independently from Glebe House Cottage.

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 the immediate setting for the house. 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.

Method of Sale: The property is offered as a whole three separate lots or as
a whole. The three lots are:-
Lot 1: Glebe House with gardens and rear paddock as shown on
sale plan.
Lot 2: Paddock with tennis court as shown on sale plan.
Lot 3: Glebe House whole estate including Glebe House Cottage
and Lime Cottage as shown on sale plan.
(Note: Glebe House Cottage and Lime Cottage are only for sale as part of the whole estate, not on their own).
