A charming 1950's detached residence situated on the edge of this popular village. With attractive gardens, double garage and ample parking.

Poets Corner is a substantial detached family home situated on a sizeable plot of approx. 0.44 acres and on the edge of the popular village of Stockland Bristol. Positioned within the former grounds of Stockland Manor, the property was named after the poetry circle who used to gather around the garden pond in the early 1900's. We understand the property was constructed in the mid-1950's and has been well-maintained and extended by the current owners over the last 30 years.
