The Property

Poplar Farm is a delightful Grade II listed moated farmhouse set in beautifully tended grounds. The property, which is timber framed under a partly reed thatch and partly tiled roof, offers well presented accommodation and charming period

features such as exposed timbers and fireplaces including an inglenook fireplace with a woodburner in the dining room. The bespoke custom-built kitchen, which shares a central fireplace with the adjoining dining room, forms the hub of the house and is superbly appointed. An Aga is set into the

fireplace and there is a further Miele oven, Liebher fridge and freezer, Miele 5 ring electric hob with extractor over, Miele dishwasher, water softener and a filtered cold water tap combined with boiling water tap. A spacious drawing room adjoins the conservatory with both rooms having a superb outlook over the garden and moat. The ground floor also provides a study, utility/boot room and cloakroom. On the first floor there is a generous master bedroom suite, 3 further double bedrooms and a family bathroom.

The house, outbuildings and grounds are all very well looked after, added to which Poplar Farm enjoys a wonderful peaceful setting, making the property ideal for family living especially for those with horses and other animals. Viewing is highly recommended.


The well tended and established grounds of about 10.2 acres form an important feature. There is a gated access onto a spacious gravelled parking area to the front of the house and also giving access to the 2 large garages and adjoining workshop/barn, both benefiting from remote opening and closing system. Beyond this is a further gated parking courtyard/stable yard with open bay hay/straw/vehicle storage and 2 pony stables. Beautiful gardens surround the house incorporating lawns, mature trees, well stocked flower and shrub beds, a south facing terrace and heated swimming pool with a pool house. The picturesque moat wraps around the house and garden providing a special feature. There are a number of post and rail paddocks which are individually accessed via useful grass avenues. In addition, there is a productive kitchen garden

and a charming bespoke greenhouse.
