Glebe Farm

Oak and Glass

Another beautiful staircase

Glebe Farm was the oldest house in Tansley but fell into disrepair and was demolished and rebuilt in 1954. The barn however still dates to Tudor times and was being used as a workshop when our client bought the property.

The first project was to strip the house out and make it largely open plan downstairs with some bi-fold windows at the front. This took ouir client the best part of a year. He then built a link from the house to the back

Our client took the floors out upstairs and downstairs and stud walled the interior completely.


They had to cut through the large beams to make a doorway from the top of the staircase into a dressing room and bathroom then into the master bedroom.


“We picked central joinery because you were recommended by James Nevil a local builder who did the building work on the link and barn and has used Central several times before. Central Joinery were excellent and produced a lovely staircase which is a major feature in the barn at a reasonable price”

Doing the project meant he could have a large, secluded house but remain in the village he had lived in for the past 30 years.

Our client knew all along he wanted the oak staircase to be a major feature in the house lots of thought was put into the design to achieve the required look.
