Grade II Listed early Victorian country home with annexe and heated indoor swimming pool

Believed to have been constructed in 1839 in a Georgian fashion, Glebe House is a substantial Grade II Listed country house, built as a former rectory for the Reverend Charles Forster.

The accommodation is arranged over two floors plus a cellar and comprises two reception rooms to the main house, a kitchen/breakfast room, study and cloakroom. The first floor has a master bedroom, dressing room with en suite bathroom, a family bathroom and separate wc. Attached is an annexe comprising two further bedrooms, a living room, kitchen and bathroom. The property retains a wealth of original period features including the fireplaces to the main reception rooms and benefits from having a refitted kitchen. A lobby off the kitchen leads to the indoor heated swimming pool with views across the gardens.

The secluded grounds extend to 6.86 acres and commence with a gravel drive leading to the front facade. Immediately surrounding the house are formal lawns and a terrace to the rear. The remainder of the land comprises paddocks, tennis court and woodland. Outbuildings include a double garage, store room and a stable block.

This property has 6.85 acres of land.


Stisted is a former winner of Essex Village of the Year and benefits from a secluded position in the unspoilt north Essex countryside with enviable access to London, Essex, Suffolk and Cambridgeshire. The highly ranked Academy Primary School (Stisted CoE), newly opened The Onley gastropub and recently upgraded superfast broadband provide added attraction. The Braintree Golf Club, set in the grounds of former Stisted Hall, entitles Stisted residents to extensive walking surrounded by a historic collection of rare trees. An expanse of footpaths connects to the nearby 2000 acre Monks Wood Estate in Pattiswick while Coggleshall and Braintree provide convenient access to supermarkets, retail outlets, eateries and a cinema.


From the eastern edge of Braintree take the A120 (Coggeshall Road) and after a short distance turn left into Kings Lane signposted to Stisted. Continue along this lane, passing the Golf Club and then at the village centre turn left into Rectory Road. Pass the village hall on your left and continue for approximately 400 metres and the property can be found on the right just before the sign to Bocking.
