A home with connection at its core. Glebe House has been bringing people together for centuries.

Historically the site of cultivated land yielding revenue to the community, parishioners would gather to collect the harvest. Black and white photos from the early 1900s capture similar scenes, as the family who called this property home tend to vines and turn soil. In others, the smiles of parents and children have been frozen in time; scenes from climbing giant mounds of snow to summer days picnicking on the lawn. As the decades pass the faces change and new generations appear.

Today, daffodils line the drive and, as the treetops give way, the property's Georgian frontage appears.

Treasured memories have continued to be made here even in recent years, hosting the wedding of our vendor's daughter. The lawns hosted marquees on a sunny September day, family and friends chinked glasses and nattered in anticipation. At the top of the grand staircase one can overlook the impressive entrance hall. It is here that the bride stood, preparing to begin her day.

Five months of careful thought and affection was put into creating this exceptional home by the current vendors.

The boot room, off the entrance hall, is sophisticated yet fun. Wood panelling is met with prints of pheasants on the wallpaper; a nod to Norfolk perhaps?
The rest of the home is fresh yet cosy, enhanced by original features. The study, drawing room and dining room are flooded with light through sash windows and captivating views onto the grounds. A mesmerising open fire draws all the attention in the sitting room. Simply calling for cosy evenings with loved ones to be spent here.

A welcoming kitchen/diner is the heart of the home, stylish and practical, ready for casual dining with family or creating a feast for guests. It is the garden room, an oval oasis of warmth and greenery, that captures hearts in Glebe House. Morning coffees and an afternoon reading beg to be spent here, soaking up the outside while sunshine beams in.

Glebe house hosts five generous bedrooms, four with en-suites, and a family bathroom. Tall windows continue to offer views of the expansive grounds, a picture-perfect scene to wake up to year round, absorbing the transformation outdoors, which comes with the changing seasons.

Beyond the house, seven acres call to be explored, foraged and entertained on.

There's a double garage, paddock and swimming pool. The Gardener's Cottage sits quietly alongside the main house; suited to multi-generational living or a holiday-let.

The workshop with power, benefits from having separate access, making it ideal for horse boxes, vintage cars and alike

The next chapter at Glebe House could feature renovation of the barn, currently sitting empty within the walled grounds, which already has planning permission in place for a two and three bedroom mews. 

ASHILL Nestled between the market towns of Swaffham and Watton for convenience, Ashill is the epitome of mid-Norfolk living.

The village is quaint, the road through meanders alongside cottages, a community centre and village pub.

The parish church of St Nicholas peers over the wall. Dating back to the 14th century, the church stands close to a group of houses that form the oldest part of the village.

The thriving, historic market town of Swaffham offers an extensive range of local amenities including a Waitrose, Tesco, Asda, further shops, pubs and restaurants, three doctors surgeries and primary, secondary and higher schools together with a variety of leisure and sports activities, including an excellent Golf Club. The town has an extremely popular Saturday market and many interesting historic buildings including the parish church and 'The Buttercross'.

In each direction a different taste of Fen-land lifestyle calls to be enjoyed. To the west, Hanseatic King's Lynn sits on the River Great Ouse with direct rail link to London and Cambridge.

Royal Sandringham Estate sits just outside the port town and beyond, the shores of the sought-after north Norfolk curve around the coast. years. Around 25 miles east, the cathedral city of Norwich offers an abundance of stores.

Leaving field views behind, Thetford forest lies south on the border to Suffolk.
