No. 8 Glinbury

Steeped in history No.8 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 panelled front door to the elegant spacious entrance hall where period doors with nickel ironmongery lead to all rooms along a hallway that opens at the end to a bright stairwell and double doors to the heart of the house, the Kitchen, dining and family living area.

The rosewood lines of the antique stairs draw the eyes upward to the dramatic period window on the half landing and offer glimpses of the landing above. At the foot of the stairs double doors open to the quintessential living space with large fireplace, carved architraves, ornate plasterwork and spectacular windows framing the natural beauty outside set the atmospheric stage at No.8.

The sleek kitchen design brings a fresh progressive energy to the period backdrop, from here extra large Georgian windows overlook the grounds from the dual aspect dining area in a space that flows perfectly to the delightful family living area. The lounge enjoys perfect finishes, a quiet retreat with french doors leading to outdoor paved areas. The spectacular panelled WC and the fantastically functional boot room and utility complete the ground floor accommodation.

Period style stairs lead to a large feature landing and opens to the family bathroom and four elegant large double bedrooms, two of which are ensuite. The large bedrooms provide each resident with their own quality private space awash with period charm and with 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.
