Grand old vicarage in Lower Hutt comes with its own time capsule

  • People who live in historic properties are often considered custodians, rather than owners.

There’s that sense of guardianship and responsibility for protecting and maintaining the heritage of the home, which may well be a national treasure.

And that is exactly the situation with The Glebe, the original vicarage in Boulcott, Lower Hutt, which was built in 1856 on land gifted to the Anglican church by Edward Gibbon Wakefield. Heritage New Zealand has given the house an Historic Place Category 1 listing.
