Poole stands in an elevated position with fine views over fields and surrounding countryside. The present house is early 18th century and is Listed Grade ll with parts dating back to the 16th century. The house is constructed principally of colour washed rendered cob and stone under a thatched roof of water reed.
A particular feature of the house is its 17th century plank and chamfered muntin screen. There is a detached garage block with an integral store and a separate self-contained studio flat above. The house is approached by a private drive, which leads to the main entrance of the property. The entrance porch takes you through to the hall with oak staircase. The dining room features a high-beamed ceiling, oak panelled window seats and 19th century oak parquet floor. The sitting room is light and spacious, with 19th century pine fireplace and mantle. This room leads through to the study, with fitted ceiling height book shelves. The garden room features a pair of French windows, which opens out into a terraced area in the garden.
The kitchen/breakfast room features an inglenook fireplace with oak beam and mantelpiece with inset oil fired Aga. There is a range of useful fitted cupboards. The scullery has further fitted cupboards, a Belfast sink and plumbing for a washing machine with pantry and a door leading out to the garden. The oak staircase from the hall leads to the first floor accommodation; there are four double bedrooms (one en-suite), a family bathroom and shower room.
The majority of the ground floor and upstairs rooms at Poole enjoy uninterrupted views over the surrounding countryside.
The garden and grounds (approximately 5.5 acres) surround and protect Poole and are mainly laid to lawn, shrubberies and flower beds with mature trees. Outside the garden room is a paved area with cobbled path around to the kitchen door where there is a further paved area. There is a productive vegetable patch with greenhouse and also a summerhouse. The main lawn sweeps down to the Sulley brook.
The land is laid to pasture with mixed woodland and a lake. The lake with its reed beds and floating duck house is a haven for a variety of wildlife. The grounds run down to a small stream, the Sulley Brook, which flows on the eastern boundary of the property and there are also remains on an old cider orchard. Both paddocks have separate road access and are often let out to a local farmer for grazing sheep and making hay.
To the north of the house is a detached studio flat, forming the upper storey of the double garage, and accessed from its own path and front door to: Entrance lobby, shower room, kitchen and living room, measuring 270 maximum x 183 overall (8.23m max x 5.56m). It has potential to extend subject to planning consent. The detached double garage, which has an adjoining log store and further integral store to the rear, measures 183 x 166 (5.56m x 5.03m) and the store measures 100 x 93 maximum (3.05m x 2.82m).
