One of the finest houses in Canterbury

Listed Grade II, and dating from the 18th century, Glebe House is a former rectory situated in St Stephens, a former village an easy walk from the city centre.

Inside, all the main reception rooms are accessed off the hall, including the main drawing room, a bright double aspect room at the rear of the house with good views across the gardens and a brick fireplace. The dining room, to the front of the house, has original panelling, and also has an open fireplace with a marble surround, as does the study. The kitchen is well-proportioned, and leads to the annexe which comprises a sitting room/dining room, kitchen and two bedrooms.

A wide Georgian staircase leads up to the first floor in the main house, which has a master bedroom suite which has a corner fireplace. The guest bedroom is opposite, and has a door to bedroom three/dressing room. Bedroom four is a large double bedroom at the front of the house and bedroom five is currently used as an upstairs study.
