DESCRIPTION / BACKGROUND Poplar House is an attractively situated edge of village smallholding offering potential. The property comprises a detached house, a range of modern buildings and in all is situated within 15.6 acres of grassland with an attractive woodland spring area known as Dun Keld Spring.
Poplar House has been in the ownership of the Wardle family for over fifty years and during this period the property had operated as the main base for a haulage business and operated as a smallholding with a small sheep flock. The house comprises a detached dwelling situated in lovely mature gardens and provides 4 bedroom accommodation.
The house does now require modernisation and improvement, but offers vast scope for re-configuration or extension to create a substantial family home, subject to the necessary consents. There is a range of relatively modern buildings and yard area to the south of the house providing a perfect base to provide smallholding facilities or for use as stabling or general storage.
In all Poplar House is situated in around 15.6 acres of which approximately 11.3 acres comprises three well fenced grazing paddocks and around 2.3 acres is known as Dun Keld Spring which comprises a deciduous woodland/wetland area offering amenity and conservation value. Part of the land is situated on the immediate edge of Wombleton village and therefore there is possible long term development potential subject to planning.
LOCATION The property is located in a quiet, edge of village position to the south east of Wombleton village accessed directly off Flatts Lane. The property has direct access off Flatts Lane which leads onto a private drive serving the property. The village of Wombleton lies to the south of the A170 Scarborough to Thirsk road almost midway between the market towns of Helmsley and Kirkbymoorside.

There is a regular bus service between Helmsley, Kirkbymoorside and Pickering which passes by at the top of the private drive.
