Glebe House is located under half a mile to the east of the small village of Maidford in attractive unspoilt south Northamptonshire countryside. Local amenities can be found at the nearby village of Blakesley, about a mile and a half away, including a general store with post office, the Bartholomew Arms public house, garage, parish church and high performing primary school. More specialist requirements can be found at the market towns of Towcester and Daventry and the larger centre of Milton Keynes. Mainline train services from Milton Keynes to London (Euston) from 35 minutes and Banbury to London (Marylebone) from under 55 minutes. Connection to the national motorway system is found at junction 15a Rothersthorpe of the M1 motorway and junction 11 Banbury for the M40 motorway.
Glebe House was converted in 1997 from a range of barns and can be found at the end of a private drive and provides flexible accommodation. Constructed of local stone under a tile roof, the principally single storey barn surrounds a wide gravel parking area and offers surprisingly larger than expected, flexible accommodation.
The property is accessed by a wide light entrance which opens to a large open plan dining room area and a sitting room with stone flooring and a high glazed barn door with views to the garden and surrounding country. The west wing comprises three bedrooms including a vaulted bedroom 2 with en-suite and fitted cupboards. The kitchen breakfast room has high vaulted ceilings and is centred around a work island with breakfast bar. There are extensive wall and floor cupboards throughout including a Belfast sink, electric hob and an oil-fired Aga. One side of the room is a breakfast area and adjoining, is a super glazed orangery with under-floor heating, making the whole space truly ‘living’ and enjoying garden and countryside views. Through the utility room, in the east wing can be found an annexe with separate access which includes an open plan kitchen/living area, bedroom and a shower room – ideal for dependents, income generation, or self-contained office. On the first floor is the principal suite comprising a good-sized bathroom with double stone wash basins and an extra large glazed shower. Adjoining the bedroom is a dressing area with fitted cupboards and a dressing table.
Grounds and gardens
Glebe House is privately situated and is approached via secure electrically operated gates and by a drive, which runs to a wide parking area to the front. The main rear gardens comprise a principally lawn area with an eating terrace under a pergola, raised beds and a timber summerhouse (with power). The drive divides two pony paddocks with post and rail stock proof fencing. The whole property is surrounded by lovely unspoilt pasture land. In all the property extends to about 1.03 acres (0.41 hectare)
