This unique detached country residence, built in the late 1960s, is being sold for the first time in many years. It presents an exciting opportunity for purchasers seeking a country retreat that is not too remote, especially given its proximity to the Wyre Forest Nature Reserve, which forms the backdrop to this location. The property is ideally suited for equestrian enthusiasts, as the house sits within almost 5 acres, with a gated and enclosed paddock tucked away at the rear and bordering St Johns Lane.

The house is spacious, featuring three bedrooms with generous room sizes throughout, including a wonderful landing that opens out to a full-width rear balcony overlooking the grounds and countryside beyond. There is amazing potential to extend the existing footprint and develop a charming stone barn found in the grounds, nicely positioned to one side of the driveway, subject to the usual planning consents. The barn is a two-story structure with an adjacent modern extension currently being used as a hobbies room.

Poplar Dene is set back several hundred yards from the roadside and accessed via a gated entrance with a sweeping tarmacadam driveway leading up to the house and around to the land at the rear.
There is parking for multiple vehicles, including motorhomes and horse boxes. To one side of the property is an attached single garage accessed via an electric roller shutter door, benefiting from power, light and a rear pedestrian door.

Living Room
Upon entering through the front door, a spacious reception hall greets you with stairs rising to the first floor and glazed doors accessing the living room, dining room and kitchen.

The bay-fronted living room runs from the front to the back of the property, offering lovely views at the rear across paddocks to the mature oak woodland beyond. This spacious and light reception room is centred around a wood-burning stove and has wall lights, patio doors and an internal glazed door accessing the adjoining kitchen.

This wonderful kitchen is a good size and offers plenty of scope for extension at the rear, subject to planning. It comprises an oil-fired AGA, modern wall and base units, downlighters, space for a dishwasher and fridge freezer and a doorway through to an adjoining utility room.

Utility Room
The utility features a ‘Belfast’ sink, downlighters, wall and base units, a larder cupboard, a downstairs WC and space/plumbing for appliances, with a door conveniently accessing the rear of the property.

Dining Room
A cosy dining room, which can be used as a study, completes the ground floor accommodation, featuring a window to the front aspect that illuminates the room with natural light.

First Floor
Upstairs, you are greeted by a spacious landing, ideal for use as a living area, occasional bedroom space, study or library. This impressive part of the property is incredibly light and enjoys far-reaching views to the rear, with French doors leading out to a first-floor balcony.

This sizeable balcony runs the full width of the property and is a great place for al fresco dining or enjoying an evening drink as the sun sets over the trees.

On the first floor, there are three double bedrooms serviced by a spacious family bathroom. All the bedrooms come with ample fitted furniture and enjoy lovely views of the surrounding gardens and countryside.

The bathroom, flooded with light from dual aspect windows, features a corner shower cubicle, a panelled bath, downlighters, a vanity unit, a bidet, tiled flooring and a chrome towel radiator.

Gardens and Grounds
The grounds of this property are simply wonderful and offer something for everybody, including those who desire space, seclusion and especially those with animals and equestrian interests. The property sits well back in the extensive grounds measuring almost 5 acres comprising formal gardens, an orchard and a paddock. To the front of the property are two large sections of meadow on which ancient cherry trees stand.

Directly to the rear of the property are landscaped formal gardens, comprising a stone-paved patio with a sunken pond, walled beds and shrubbery. To the right, there is another section of orchard with cherry trees, mature hedging, a wooden summerhouse and a chicken coop.

A wooden gate from here leads to an extensive paddock measuring around 4 acres, bordered by mature hedging and oak trees, with a spinney in one corner. This gently undulating parcel of land is ideal for keeping animals or horses and directly borders St Johns Lane, which leads directly into the Wyre Forest Nature Reserve.

Stone Barn - Craft Room
Situated to the right of the property is the period stone barn, which has the potential for conversion, subject to planning. It could be ideal as a self-contained annexe or holiday let. This two story building has a power supply and an adjoining modern extension currently being used as a craft room. The craft room has power, lighting and underfloor heating.

Oil central heating. Mains electricity and water. Septic tank. Broadband is available at this property.
