A Grade II listed farmhouse with an annexe is up for sale in Elmsett, near Hadleigh, at a guide price of £775,000. 

Poplar Hall was constructed in the 16th or 17th century, with a rear extension added in the 18th century. 

Estate agent Chapman Stickels said: “Despite requiring modernisation throughout, the house offers well-proportioned living space giving considerable scope for improvement.” 

On the ground floor of the property, there is a lobby leading to the dining room and sitting room, which include original features. 

Both rooms have oak ceiling beams and an inglenook fireplace which divides the rooms. The fireplace supports the chimney stack, which has four octagonal shafts.

There’s a WC and a further reception room, which is open to the sitting room and includes doors to outside, off the rear lobby. 

Upstairs, on the first floor, there’s a landing area, five bedrooms, a family bathroom and an additional WC. 

The master bedroom has a dressing room, and two of the other bedrooms have cupboards.
