The Poplars occupies a delightful 1.5 acre plot to the end of a private drive in the sought after village of Averham. Offering two bedrooms, two bathrooms and three reception rooms, the property provides over 1800sq ft. of versatile accommodation, with the potential for a third bedroom in the loft space.
Entry to the north elevation leads into a spacious entrance hall with flagstone tile floor, also providing access into the spacious garage which benefits internal power, lighting and water, with a workshop area to the rear.
The entrance hall follows on to an internal lobby, featuring half height panelling and allowing access to the utility room and a three piece bathroom suite, fitted with a freestanding roll top bath, concealed cistern WC and a vanity wash hand basin.
The dual aspect breakfast kitchen is fitted with oak effect base and wall units with a breakfast bar peninsula and laminated work surfaces. Appliances within the kitchen include a Neff electric oven and grill, Neff four burner induction hob with extractor above, stainless steel sink and drainer, an undercounter fridge and two tall larder units.
Off the kitchen, another entrance hall, which is also accessible via the east elevation lends access to the extent of the accommodation, including the sitting room with a focal point multimedia wall with inset wall hung electric fire, recessed alcove display shelving and French doors leading out to a patio area,
There is a snug/study with built-in shelving and dual aspect fixed seating area, affording lovely views over the garden and beyond. Glazed double doors from the snug area lead into a pleasant dining room which also enjoys superb views across the gardens and paddock land with a triple aspect and French doors out to a patio area. The patio is covered by a pergola which itself is draped in wonderful wisteria planting, making this an idyllic seating area.
The dual aspect principal bedroom sits to the north-east corner of the house with a mirror fronted fitted wardrobe and fitted bedside shelving. Bedroom two overlooks the garden to the south aspect, fitted with a collection of furniture to include wardrobes, bedside tables, high level cupboards and a dressing table.
A shower room neighbours the principal bedroom with a very generous walk-in shower enclosure, chrome heated towel rail, a concealed low level WC with vanity wash hand basin.
A loft hatch with drop down ladder from the main entrance hall leads up to a loft room, currently storage space with additional eaves storage and two Velux windows. This room could quite easily be converted into further bedroom space, subject to the necessary building regulations.
A private drive leads down to a set of black wrought iron gates, opening through to The Poplars and the block paved drive, providing ample off-street parking in addition to the garage.
There is a formal garden space to the side of the property which is laid to lawn with a block paved seating area and a patio which is also accessible from the dining room.
To the rear of the property there is a generous stretch of lawn with a shrub boundary, a large patio with central pergola, draped in wonderful wisteria planting, making this an idyllic seating area. There is also a feature pond to the corner of the patio and raised bedding planters and a decking platform to the west corner of the garden which favours lovely views over the paddock.
A wrought iron fence separates the formal garden from the paddock which measures 1.1 acres, providing ample space for a pony. Within the paddock area there is a timber barn with internal power and lighting, this space provides an ideal workshop or could be converted into a stable & tack room.
