Poplar and Bramble Cottages were originally one farmhouse and there is potential for the two properties to be reunited. Built in the 1830s this was an original Norfolk farmhouse built with the traditional metal ties (as can be seen on photos of each property). The original front door site is now part of Bramble Cottage and the connection to Poplar Cottage was originally at the bottom and also at the top of the main staircase. The extensions were added in the 1970s and built by a local and reputable builder, and both cottages' extensions were completely reroofed, including gutters and bargeboards, in 2020 by a local roofing specialist.

Services consist of Oil fired central heating, mains water, mains electricity and shared drainage with Bramble Cottage.

Agent's notes:- (1) The vendors undertake to construct a party wall in the roof space void, such work to be carried out asap & if following completion, on a date to be agreed between the parties.

(2) The pony paddock immediately behind the cottage is potentially available to rent. This 1.5 acre paddock already has fencing and was until recently used as a pony paddock by one of the previous occupants.

How It Works: Unconditional Timed Auction Online: This is a binding method of sale similar to a traditional public property auction. The only difference is the bidding takes place online. The successful purchaser will be required to pay a 10% deposit (subject to a minimum payment of £5,000) on the fall of the virtual gavel and contracts will be exchanged. Bidding for properties online works in a similar fashion to eBay. You can place bids using your PC, tablet or mobile phone and the minimum amount you can bid is defined by the 'bid increment' level. When you place a bid, the property listing page will show you if your bid was successful and whether or not you are the highest bidder. When you are the highest bidder on a property, if another bidder outbids you the system will notify you by email so that you can place another bid if you wish. The major difference from eBay is that our system eradicates sudden death 'bid sniping' through the use of auction 'extension times'. If you have any questions or require any clarification please contact the auctioneer.
