A striking 1800's detached Georgian Grade II Listed house situated on the sought after private road in Staplegrove. No Onward Chain.

The Poplars is a striking 1800's detached Georgian Grade II Listed house situated on the sought after private road in Staplegrove. The Poplars has been owned by the same family since the 1970's and properties along this road rarely become available for sale and this one benefits from no onward chain and would be the perfect opportunity for someone to update and add their own stamp to the house. The property is full of character and charm throughout with bay windows, high ceilings and ceiling roses. The property in brief comprises an entrance hallway with an impressive wrap around stair case and clock cupboard. There are five reception rooms to the ground floor. The sitting room is situated at the front of the house and has original sash windows, original shutters, coving and an open fire place. The Dining room has original sash windows, original shutters, coving and a ceiling rose and again another open fireplace. The office/playroom leads through to the drawing room which was added on in the 1980's. This is a fantastic sized room and has double doors which lead onto the glass garden room which has a further door to the garden. The kitchen/breakfast room has matching wall and base units, a pantry style cupboard and a door which leads to the utility room which has plumbing for a washing machine and dishwasher and a further door which leads to the courtyard. There is also a W.C. to the ground floor and the study has built in base units. To the first floor is a spacious landing with two storage linen cupboards. All four bedrooms are good sized doubles. The master bedroom benefits from a Jack and Jill bathroom and built in wardrobe, sink and a dressing table. Bedroom two has an en-suite which has a bath and sink, bedroom four also has a sink, the two other bedrooms are doubles and are served by the family bathroom. The property is in need of modernisation throughout and would be the perfect house for someone to put their own stamp on it and is offered to the market with no onward chain.

The property is situated in a highly favoured residential area and properties rarely become available on this road. The area has plenty of local facilities. Primary and secondary schooling are both within easy striking distance. Staplegrove Road gives good access into the town and also the northern part of Taunton. The area is dominated by established housing mainly from the Victorian era and is widely regarded as one of the most premier districts of the town. French Weir is also close by for walks. The house also has good access to Musgrove Park Hospital, Taunton train station which provides links to Bristol, Exeter and London.

The property is approached off Private Road onto the private gated driveway which provides off road parking and access to the garage. The gardens are all to the front of the house. The front gardens are mostly laid to formal lawns with borders full of shrubs, trees and flowers. The large tree has a tree preservation order on it. There is a pergola which leads through to the bottom of the garden which is very well established with flowers, shrubs and trees. This is the perfect opportunity for someone to add their own stamp to the garden. The vendor has advised there is a covenant on the bottom half of the garden (closest to Private Road) which states the land cannot be sold off separately to the house or high/tall fencing/trees/plants cannot be planted above a certain height. There is a courtyard at the side of the property behind the garage, a potting shed and an old coal shed.
