SITUATED JUST OUTSIDE the East Cork town of Midleton, Glebe House has close to 200 years of stories to tell.
The five-bedroom property was built back in the 1820s as a rectory, and has since been lovingly repurposed, making it the perfect home for a family looking to upgrade.
Whoever next takes ownership of this historical property won’t need to do much more than unpack their bags, as the home has a full suite of modern home appliances and has been impeccably restored throughout.
The kitchen with its oil-fired Aga oven, hand-painted country-style units, Belfast sink and slate tiled flooring, feels like the natural heart of this property, and it has French doors opening onto a beautiful garden patio area.
Despite the contemporary makeover, the property retains many of its original features, like 11ft ceilings, Georgian fittings and an acre of mature gardens outside. Entrance to the house is via a gated gravelled driveway.
Downstairs comprises a large oak-floored entrance hallway, a drawing room with open fire, a sitting room, kitchen, offer, study and guest WC.
Upstairs are five generous bedrooms, including a master bedroom with an en-suite bathroom.
The family bathroom will be of particular interest to home décor lovers, with its free-standing roll-top bath, cast iron radiators and feature wall panelling.
Midleton has a range of family amenities such as primary and secondary schools, sports clubs, bars and restaurants, and it’s also just over half an hour’s drive from Cork city.
