Description

Six Bedroom Georgian Home. If you are looking for a home that visitors will describe as grand, imposing and welcoming, then this is the property for you. Located in Walmer, this iconic building will be instantly recognisable to many Deal residents.

Glebe House is a fabulous, substantial detached Georgian family home that is laid out over four floors. As the property is not listed, many improvements have been made by the current owner, including double glazing to the rear of the property and the second floor. The remaining rooms retain the original Georgian panes. The house still retains much of the original charm and features, notably the wide solid pine flooring that runs throughout and dates back to the 1800’s.

Lower and Ground Floor:

The ground floor accommodation is spacious and flexible. On entering via the grand Hallway, there are doors leading to the double aspect Living and Dining Rooms (the latter with French doors to the Garden), Kitchen and Study. The first notable piece of the history of this home is evident in the Dining Room, two doors that vary in height to allow entrance to servants and naval hat wearing guests alike. Not as evident, is the tunnel which runs to the nearby St Mary’s Church, which has been bricked up along with the other rumoured underground passages that have yet to be discovered. The Kitchen and Study grant dual access to the full length Cellar, which houses three separate storage rooms, a Wine Cellar and Utility Area.

First Floor:

Up here you will find the two principal bedrooms that enjoy views over the side garden, main family bathroom plus an additional area that is open to the landing and features the fireplace of just one of the three chimneys that adorn this house. Currently used as a reading and for practicing the piano, this area can serve a multitude of uses. Finally, a secondary Shower Room that also serves as En Suite by way of ‘Jack and Jill’ doors to Bedroom One.

Second Floor:

The top floor currently houses four separate bedrooms, two with En Suite shower rooms. From here, the accommodation benefits from impressive views reaching as far as the Seafront, over half a mile away.

Garden:

The gardens wrap around the entirety of the house. To the left there is a large well-tended lawn and driveway with parking for multiple vehicles and double car port, bordered by mature shrubs and with a beautifully cared for Beech tree at the entrance. Behind the house is an enclosed, walled area with artificial grass, great for catching the sun’s rays and for entertaining the dogs. Furthermore, a private sunken garden provides a great outdoor escape for that all important privacy.

Other notable benefits of this magnificent home centre around the location. Walmer Castle, the beach path that leads to Deal Seafront, Walmer Train Station with links to Deal, Sandwich, Ramsgate, Margate, London Victoria, Ashford International, St Pancras and Charing Cross are all within walking distance. Even closer is Walmer Village, providing daily essentials via the supermarket, butchers, chemist, newsagent, fish and chip shop and micro pub. For the evening, why not sample the beers on offer at the nearby micro pub, or combine them with a sit down meal at the recently renovated, highly rated gastro pub, The Thompsons Bell.

Families that are looking to select Grammar schooling for the children, will be spoilt by the choice of three educational facilities. Whilst they are at school, you may wish to take advantage of the famed Golf courses, of which Royal St. Georges hosted The Open Championship in 2021.

This property is truly one to be viewed in person, to appreciate all that is on offer. Arrangements are exclusively via The Agency UK.
