A substantial detached former farmhouse with 15th century origins with later additions to include the handsome 18th century front façade. The property sits in a lovely position on the edge of this popular village backing onto open fields in a mature setting.
A gated driveway sweeps up to the turning circle in front of the house leading to a large level enclosed lawn lined with poplar trees as the name of the house suggests. The property forms three parts; the front family house with accommodation on three floors full of period features, the remnants of an old chapel at the centre and a large two storey barn to the rear, presently housing a large garage area, indoor pool and storage. This area offers huge versatility for further living accommodation, entertaining
area, or annexe. At the side of the house, enclosed by a high stone wall and facing due south, is a lovely orchard and fruit garden.
This is accessed from the garden room and this side of the property is adorned with a mature wisteria.
The property sits on the edge of this popular and historic village with Roman origins. It has excellent facilities to include the church, chapel, village hall, an outstanding nursery, acclaimed childminders and a favoured primary school. There is a park, playground, football pitch and village tennis courts. Both Neston Park Farm Shop and Lowden Garden Centre, Farm shop and Café are in walking distance, as are the late-opening garage and grocery shop, and friendly White Hart pub and restaurant. There are excellent sports facilities a short walk away at the exclusive private Stonar School. The village is surrounded by the market towns of Corsham, Melksham and Bradford on Avon and equidistant between Chippenham and the World Heritage city of Bath.
