Full description

Tenure: Freehold

A magnificent country home on a generous plot that distinguishes itself from the rest not only with outstanding attention to detail within - but also FABULOUS VIEWS that stretch for miles towards the Shropshire hills. This truly is is a one-of-a-kind property!

You approach along a leafy carriage driveway, flanked either side by lawn that is dotted by a variety of mature trees including birches, conifers and of course, Poplars. And as The Poplars itself comes into view - you can't help but admire its situation because already there are glimpses of the open countryside beyond. At this stage you know you are in for a treat.

Step through the front door into the generous entrance hall and you certainly won't be disappointed. Immediately you get a sense that this home has been refurbished with outstanding attention to detail. Smooth modern lines enhanced with touches of classic features such as exposed timbers, solid oak flooring and period cast iron radiators - all blend perfectly to maintain the original charm and character of the property.

Leading off the entrance hall are two large reception rooms. The larger of the two being particularly bright and airy with two sets of French doors leading out onto one of the patio areas. The other sitting room with a Morso log burner makes the ideal cosy snug - perfect for those chilly winter evenings.

To the other side of the entrance hall, a useful study which provides a front aspect. There is also a cloakroom and a large utility / boot room - the perfect place for storing coats and wellies after your long countryside walks!

Leading through into the wonderful kitchen diner. This space not only provides everything you need to impress with your culinary skills - but it also enjoys fantastic views that need to be seen in person to be fully appreciated. In the distance, across countryside and farmland you can clearly see several well-known Shropshire hills - such as the Wrekin, Lawley, Caer Caradoc as well as the nearby Lyth Hill of course. Not many homes have views like this - imagine having the pleasure of them at every mealtime!

Heading upstairs and there are four good size double bedrooms. All of which enjoy an outlook to either trees and garden or the afore-mentioned views towards the hills. There is a large en-suite to the master bedroom as well as a large family bathroom.


The property occupies a plot of approximately 1.15 acres. The garden, which wraps around the majority of the house, is well-established with a variety of mature trees and hedgerow as well as smaller shrubs and bushes dotted within and around the lawns.

The garden to the rear of the property is east-facing and has been thoughtfully landscaped with a large raised patio area adjacent to the kitchen which provides an outlook over the garden and pond - as well as another area to soak up those wonderful views! This really is the perfect place to enjoy outdoor time with family and friends.

Paddock: There is a paddock area which is adjacent to the entrance / driveway.


Situated behind the property is a stable block which is divided into three separate sections. There is also a large garage / workshop adjacent to the property at the end of the driveway. Finally, a large garden shed/store tucked away in the northern section of garden (perfect for that ride-on lawnmower)!


To the north of the property is another paddock of approximately 1 acre in size. This is available at an additional cost and via separate negotiation.

In brief, the property comprises of: Entrance hall, two reception rooms, kitchen diner, study, utility / boot room, cloakroom. Four double bedrooms (master with en-suite) and a family bathroom. Outside, there are three large outbuildings, generous gardens and a paddock.


Heading south from Shrewsbury along the A49, through Bayston Hill and approximately 1 mile past the turning to Condover, take the right hand turn (sign pointing to Exfords Green / Longden). Follow that lane for approximately 1 mile until you come to a T-junction. Turn right (sign to Annscroft / Pontesbury / Longden). After 100ft there is a private gravelled track on the left - take it. The Poplars is approximately 0.3 miles on the left.

Please READ ON for further detail about the property. Be sure to review the FLOOR PLANS which include an approximate plan of the gardens. And of course, take a look at the video footage. Then get in touch with Ewemove Shrewsbury for any further enquiries or to arrange a viewing.
