The Poplars is a striking Georgian house in Pitsford which enjoys all the benefits of village life while retaining a sense of space with a three bedroom cottage, in approximately 3.26 acres and with far reaching views over open countryside. Marketed for the first time in over 40 years.

The Poplars is set back from the road behind iron gates and a sweeping in-and-out gravel drive. Originally part of the Drummond Estate, the house is Grade II listed, built of mellow Northamptonshire stone and is in very good order with fine proportions and spacious accommodation. Entering via the front door into a generous entrance hall, the front of the house is arranged in classic Georgian fashion with well-proportioned reception rooms to either side; a study to the left and a sitting room on the right, each with a working fireplace. Ahead, there is a dining room which leads through to the kitchen with an Aga, breakfast area and garden views. There is also a sitting room with door opening onto the outdoor terrace and countryside views. There is an impressive master bedroom suite with bathroom and dressing room, with 4 further double bedrooms, a family bathroom and shower room. There is also a cellar and guest cloakroom.

There is excellent secondary accommodation in the form of a coach house with kitchen, sitting room, 2 double bedrooms sharing a jack-and-jill bathroom, third bedroom upstairs, shower room, WC, utility room and office/bedroom 4.

The Poplars is set in lovely gardens with stunning views. The grounds comprise formal lawned gardens with flower borders, fruit and vegetable beds, an upper and lower terrace, mature trees and a paddock with separate access. Outbuildings include a stable, double garage with two store rooms and two car ports.

The Poplars is situated in the village of Pitsford, around 6 miles North of Northampton and 14 miles south of Market Harborough. Trains run from Northampton Station to London Euston from 52 minutes. Both towns offer an extensive array of commercial, leisure and recreational facilities, with Pitsford Reservoir within walking distance offering sailing, cycling and pedestrian routes and fishing.

There is superb schooling in the area, with preparatory schools including Pitsford, Spratton and Maidwell, while secondary schooling includes Northampton, Pitsford (previously Northamptonshire Grammar School), Guilsborough, Uppingham and Oundle.

Communications in the area are excellent, with easy access onto the M1, A14, M6 and the wider motorway network.
