No. 7 Glinbury

Steeped in history No.7 Glinbury is a protected structure that has been refurbished to meticulously reinstate its period Style. The result is a unique family home that combines the comfort and elegance of a period residence with the high standards of energy efficiency and comfort of a new build to deliver the best of both worlds.

Enter through the quintessentially georgian front door to the elegant entrance hall where the rosewood lines of the antique stairs draw the eyes up to offer glimpses of the landing above. From the entrance hall period doors with nickel ironmongery lead to all rooms. Carved architraves, ornate plasterwork and spectacular windows framing the natural beauty outside set the atmospheric stage at No.7.

The kitchen design brings a new energy to the period backdrop and is at once traditional and progressive, from here extra large georgian windows overlook the grounds from the dining area with double sided fire shared with the more private family living area where the dual aspect and large windows make for a delightful space. The lounge enjoys perfect finishes, a quiet
retreat with french doors leading to outdoor paved areas. The spectacular home office, the panelled WC and the fantastically functional boot room and utility complete the ground floor accommodation.

Magnificent stairs lead to a large feature landing with void to the entrance hall below and opens to four large elegant double bedrooms, two of which are ensuite. The large bedrooms provide each resident with their own quality private space awash with period charm and will commanding views of the verdant natural surroundings at Glinbury.

The ancient Glin Valley and the stone walls of Glinbury create a privileged and private setting for this refurbished early 19th century house and gardens. The River Glin meanders through the site and is a most attractive feature in the gardens that have been established since the early 19th Century. The planted woodlands of the original gardens contained ornamental walks to the wier which have been retained and enhanced for the easy enjoyment of Glinbury residents. In the victorian spirit of collecting plant species from around the globe, generations of gardeners have added to the flora and fauna and today there are dozens of decorative species amid the native species to deliver a complimentary crescendo of colour and texture that has been centuries in the making.
