The Property
Occupying a plot of approximately one acre, and nestled in one corner of a private no-through road, a wonderfully presented spacious home in a sought-after Fenland village which offers rail links.

The owners of The Poplars have overseen much improvement to this fabulous property during their 12-year tenure, culminating in the creation of a home that offers a huge wealth of spacious rooms, stylish and yet understated decoration, and a garden of wonderful grandeur and practicality - all with a back-drop of huge dramatic skies amid enigmatic Fenland countryside.

The internal accommodation is, by its very essence, one which offers a 'flexible' layout, and briefly comprises wide entrance hall, double aspect lounge with multi-fuel burning stove, formal dining room, study, cloakroom, family/garden room with contemporary-style wood burner, fully fitted kitchen with Esse stove, integrated appliances and large separate utility room. The ground floor is completed by an extremely spacious guest living room - formerly the double garage - and which is served by its own wet room.

Two staircases lead to the first floor where the impressive rooms continue in the form of four double bedrooms, one of which is a large master bedroom with Juliette balcony overlooking the rear, together with a dressing room with modern fitted wardrobes and ensuite. A gigantic guest bedroom - linked to downstairs by the secondary staircase, also offers ensuite facilities.

Step outside to the rear garden which has been nurtured by the current owners from just a 'space' to an absolute delight begging to be explored. Formal gardens bordered by a patio hold an eclectic mix of established planting, a greenhouse, summer house, two paddock areas - field shelter and small stable - all edged by open countryside.

An ample parking area to the front seamlessly leads to the rear via a gated gravelled driveway, making it ideal for those wishing to introduce an equine interest to this simply superb home.

Total Plot Size Approximately One Acre (STMS)

Open block paved driveway sits to the front of the property allowing parking for several vehicles. A paved path leads to the front door.

Paved path leads to one side of the property and gives access to the side garden - which is of lawn and established shrubs, all enclosed by close board timber fencing. The plastic oil storage tank is also sited here to one corner, upon hard standing and concealed by trellis fencing.

The pathway continues through a timber gate to the rear of the property. Here two good sized timber sheds are located, providing additional storage or workshop use.

From the front drive area, a shingled drive leads from the South side of the property through a pair of wrought iron gates and further timber five bar gate - continuing into the rear garden area.

The rear garden with a gentle gradient sloping away from the property, has been thoughtfully divided into three sections. The first, and immediately to the rear of the house, is the garden area. Laid mainly with lawn edged by a raised deck and quarried stone patio and embellished with a variety of shaped well stocked and established planting. A shingled path leads the entire length of the garden area, covered occasionally by pergola with climbing vines and edged by lavender. A vegetable patch is also positioned within this space. The far end hosts fruit trees and a greenhouse.

The next two areas are arranged as separate paddocks. Enclosed by a combination of post and rail; and post and wire fencing, accessed via timber five bar gates. There is also external lighting. One area has a single stable, field shelter and chicken runs, the second has a summer house to one corner in order to take full advantage of the wonderful far reaching Fenland views and sunsets.

The village of Manea is popular with commuters given it possesses it's own rail station which links the village to Cambridge, Peterborough, Stanstead and London.
The village is ideally located for road links to the market town of March, the small Fenland city of Ely, and conveniently place for both the A10 and A14 roads.
