COULD POPLAR COTTAGE BE YOUR NEXT HOME? Are you looking for a project? A house to make home? With substantial and versatile living accommodation AND a separate three-bedroom annexe for your guests, older children, rental or a holiday cottage? And all set within circa 1 acre of gated grounds just waiting to be landscaped to your liking! With an extension needing completing to your choosing. This is an opportunity you have to see.
As you approach through a pair of secure timber gates, the separate three-bedroom annexe is to your left with Poplar Cottage standing proud ahead of you which we are sure will impress each and every time you return home.
Leading through from the porch with its quarry tiled floor, you enter the living room, a generous room featuring a cast iron multi-fuel burning stove set on a slate hearth within an exposed brick chimney breast. Off the living room is the drawing room, a good-sized room with plenty of natural light and an exposed fireplace. And beyond the drawing room is the family dining kitchen currently fitted with a suite of units incorporating a range cooker with double oven. A double storey extension has been started, the ground floor portion to create a family room with kitchen, dining and lounge area which will create a generous setting for those friends and family gatherings and upstairs an extension to bedroom three to literally treble in size! The extension needs to be incorporated into the existing bedroom but the end wall remains open. Would you finish with wall to wall glazed bi folding doors or French doors to really enjoy an elevated perspective? There is also a utility room and cloakroom w/c on the ground floor - always useful additions to a family home.
Moving upstairs and the landing features decorative stained-glass windows with doors leading to all five bedrooms and the family bathroom.
The spacious master bedroom enjoys elevated garden views through the glazed French doors that open to a Juliet balcony, there is a suite of fitted wardrobes and the convenience of a well-appointed four-piece ensuite. While bedrooms two and four feature exposed beams, bedroom three features a cast iron fireplace and bedroom five could serve as a useful dressing room, walk in wardrobe or study. All bedrooms enjoy elevated garden and/or countryside views. The family bathroom has been fitted with a four-piece suite incorporating a deep panelled spa bath and glass shower enclosure with chrome power shower.
The wrap around gardens can be accessed from the living room or what could soon become the family room and are just waiting to be landscaped to your liking with your choice of plants and shrubbery providing pleasing colour throughout the seasons. Leading out from the aforementioned family/family dining room there is a paved patio area providing the perfect setting for dining and entertaining. And there is plenty of space for your rattan or cast-iron garden furniture suite - a coffee or dining table, sun loungers, BBQ, patio heater and even a hot tub! There is one there and there is certainly the for the rest! The garden itself is mainly laid to lawn with plenty of space here for permanent outdoor toys for the younger members of the household like the more appealing timber framed swing, slide or play house without being intrusive whilst a variety of mature trees and hedging maintains privacy all year round.
As we touched upon earlier, if you needed the extra space for an older family member or your guests then there is the detached two-storey annexe comprising lounge, kitchen, study, three bedrooms and bathroom. Or why not bring in some extra income? it will certainly command a good figure either as a buy to let or holiday cottage?
