Guide price

Bedrooms: 7
With parts over 400 years old, Glebe Cottage has been the recent subject of an extensive programme of refurbishment and renovation by the current owners, completed with great care and attention to detail. The resultant property provides very well appointed flexible accommodation to suit a variety of needs.

The property is situated along a private drive off Puxton Lane, with a large golden stone parking area to the front of the house. The front elevation displays the old and more recent origins of the property, with a rubble stone former barn adjacent to a more recent residential building. The property combines charm and character, with latched doors and stone walls alongside high specification contemporary fixtures and fittings.

Upon entry the hallway opens onto the kitchen/breakfast room to the right, or up two steps to the music room to the left, and there is a useful utility room/downstairs cloakroom. The kitchen/breakfast room has recently been refitted with a comprehensive and stylish range of grey units and includes an island breakfast bar and a separate breakfast table area. The 5-oven racing green Aga gives a traditional feel and there is room for an American-style fridge-freezer.

A doorway from the kitchen/breakfast room leads to stairs to the right, or straight on to the spacious dining room, which is light and airy, with windows overlooking the side and the lovely rear garden, which is directly accessible via a glazed lobby. Off the dining room is the sitting room with large inglenook fireplace with an old bread oven, believed to date from the 1600's, along with a multi fuel stove.

The stairs wind round to a light and spacious landing area immediately off which are 3 double bedrooms and a newly fitted stylish family bathroom with large shower enclosure. Beyond is another double bedroom and airing cupboard, and a doorway that opens into a large living room/snug where there is a sense of space and calm, with ample fitted bookshelves, and light floods in through 2 Velux windows. Beyond is a contemporary shower room with walk-in enclosure, and at the end is another very spacious double bedroom with original timber beams. Off the snug to the side are 2 further large double bedrooms and a doorway opens onto a large landing area that could be used as an additional work/storage space or somewhere to simply sit and relax and enjoy sunny views over the rear garden.

Timber stairs lead down to the spacious sitting/living room that could be used for a variety of purposes. Light pours through three large sets of French doors that open onto the side and rear garden. To one end there is concealed plumbing and electrical wiring, that could accommodate a kitchen if required. Stylish contemporary lighting and vertical radiators combine with a feature wall of the original rubble stone. A door leads through to a large home office overlooking the front garden, with another office to the right. To the left is another reception room, currently used as a music room, that leads back to the entrance hall.


The property sits centrally within a plot with a front garden incorporating a lawn and seating areas along with a number of mature trees and shrubs. Round to the right-hand side is a greenhouse and vegetable patch and to the rear is the spacious enclosed garden which is mainly laid to lawn, with mature shrubs and trees along with some newly planted shrubs and new fencing. A wide sun terrace runs across the back of the property, providing a wonderful space to sit and enjoy the views or for outdoor dining. Through a wooden archway is the delightful orchard, with some fruit trees and 2 useful storage sheds. A side terrace to the side of the property opens onto the approx. 2 acre paddock, beyond which are fantastic far reaching views across adjacent farmland and countryside to the hills beyond.


The small hamlet of Puxton, with its 13th century church and country walks on the doorstep is an idyllic location

yet convenient for the amenities of Weston-super-Mare and the M5 motorway at junction 21, plus mainline railway stations at Yatton and Worle. There is good local schooling, with primary schools at nearby Hewish, Congresbury or Churchill, plus secondary schooling at the highly regarded Churchill Academy and Sixth Form.
