Built in 1904, 1 Glebe Cottage is a fine example of a Victorian village cottage. The property sits on the edge of the charming village of Gunby enjoying delightful views over open countryside.
Typical of properties within the area, the cottage is built of mellow terracotta brick and in recent times has been skillfully renovated and extended by the present vendors.
This delightful home now offers versatile accommodation over three floors with the added benefit of a self-contained annexe. All the original character has been retained
and the extended element is so skillfully done, that it blends seamlessly with the original building.
On entering the property through the oak door, an inviting reception hall gives access to the semi open plan dual reception rooms.
Each room has a wide chimney breast with original terracotta brick arch top and deep grate space, one housing a free standing Godin stove/fire.
Currently the arrangement is as two sitting rooms but one could easily become a formal dining room, should this be desired.
The large breakfast kitchen has a good range of storage with painted wall and floor cabinets with turned wooden handles, integrated dishwasher and professional Godin range cooker.
With a large bank of French doors giving access onto the terraced garden and a semi vaulted ceiling with Velux roof lights, this room is flooded with natural light, making it a great place for cooking and entertaining.
An oak staircase rises to the first floor where a large bedroom can be found with bespoke wardrobes, cupboard and book shelves. This dual aspect room has lovely views over the rear garden and over the village.
The large family bathroom with its high quality fittings includes a walk in shower, contemporary tiling and a free standing bath. The staircase to the second floor leads to the master bedroom with an exposed gable end wall showing the interesting arch top brickwork of the chimneys,
wardrobe, storage area and en suite wc with wash hand basin.
The annexe comprises of an open plan kitchen living room with a two oven electric aga. Further to this there is a double bedroom and bathroom. The annexe has its own entrance or can be accessed via the kitchen of the main house.
