POPE ~ SIMPSON ~STEPHENS HOME

With much Grace and Southern Elegance....guarded by the long straight line of pickets that fence the front and side from the small town streets stands "Poplar Corner" so named for the large crooked-limbed poplar tree in front at the northwest corner of the lot...continuing to provide a spectacular show of golden fall colors year after year since the 1800's.

This amazingly magnificent home has been well preserved , maintained and loved by the prominent families that have dwelled here throughout history. It exemplifies some of Washingtons finest architectural features with elaborate columns, ornate plaster moldings (interior and also across the exterior front facade), beautiful ascending curved staircase with carved newell post, painted cloth parlor ceiling not to mention the exquisite woodwork in the early 1785 Wilkes County old courthouse which was purchased by Alexander Pope in 1825 during his ownership of Poplar Corner and moved intact from the town Square attaching the two-story structure making it as it remains today the southwest quadrant of the home....if only walls could talk!

The home boast approximately 5, 500 square feet. Upon entering the home massive double doors on either side the center entry foyer open grandly into the spacious formal parlor to the right and an expansive formal dining room to the left. Both with wonderful original mantled fireplaces and exquisite appointments and fixtures. Also on the main level is the very large kitchen with warm heart- of- pine, a convenient work island and beautiful ornate mantled working fireplace; the den/library (old court house) with stainglass accent windows, marvelous millwork and wainscoting ; sunroom across the rear of the home with powder room for guest and the Master Bedroom Wing( an addition in 1978 by the current owners family providing ample walk-in closets along with updated his and her baths - jacuzzi tub and showers).

Upstairs off a front and rear center hall created by the division from the curving staircase are four(4) very large and bright bedrooms with two full baths located between the bedrooms. There are fireplaces in most every room of the home, beautiful wood floors, gorgeous light fixtures and exquisite wood work all evoking and capturing an atmosphere of grandeur and a lifestyle as it may have been in a past forever gone.
The basement / cellar area of the home is a historic discovery in itself with channels leading here and there and an intriguing extremely deep dry well with its own staircase! The exterior of Poplar Corner commands the same grandness as does the interior with wide porches flanking each side of the home for enjoying afternoons or early mornings sipping mint juleps or coffee.
The west side porch (excellent swinging porch) overlooks the steet side yard and an original ornate well house while the east side porch (excellent rocking chair porch as evident by the many rockers) overlooks an inviting 18 x 36 inground pool tucked privately in an area amid gardens, meandering walkways and lovely gazebo. There is also a charming GUEST HOUSE on the grounds along with several quaint barns and farm structures.
