For those looking looking for a new home close to the Hadleigh area, then look no further than our Property Of The Week features, which showcase the most interesting homes for sale on our Hadleigh Nub News property pages, now being sponsored by estate agents Chapman Sickels.

This week's outstanding home on offer is the well-proportioned Poplar Hall on the market with Chapman Stickels for £775,000


Occupying a secluded rural setting in the parish of Elmsett, Poplar Hall comprises a 'stand-alone' detached house which according to its Grade II Listing dates from the 16th / 17th century, with a substantial 18th century rear addition. 

Arranged over three floors, the accommodation is extensive, and features to the original part include oak ceiling beams in the sitting room and dining room, which are divided by an inglenook fireplace that supports the impressive chimney stack of four octagonal shafts.

Despite requiring modernisation throughout, the house offers well-proportioned living space giving considerable scope for improvement.

In addition to the five bedrooms on the first floor (which give options to create ensuite bathrooms) the second-floor bedrooms provide favourable ceiling heights with straightforward stair access via the central landing.

Poplar Hall is set to one side of a farm access road of concrete, which leads onto an 'in and out' driveway defining the front gardens which are chiefly of lawn.

The driveway leads to the main front parking area (south) which abuts a substantial single storey annex providing an additional 2,000sq.ft of ancillary accommodation. 

Defined by established field hedges, the majority of the grounds are to the west, comprising extensive areas of lawn which lead to a small grove of mainly oak trees.

Beyond is an orchard of apple and pear, where the land tapers off to the far-western boundary.


Approached via a private farm road, Poplar Farm is located equidistant between the rural villages of Whatfield and Elmsett. Elmsett is a popular village about five miles from the thriving market town of Hadleigh and nine miles from Ipswich.

The village itself offers a Village Store, public house, primary school, and village hall.


Mains electricity is connected. Oil-fired heating. Private drainage and bore hole water extraction.
