Property description

A five bedroom stone farmhouse with excellent outbuildings in a peaceful tucked away location yet close to the middle of the village. In all about 5 acres.

This is a wonderful property comprising period stone farmhouse with origins dating back to 1760, superb 45' workshop and gardens and grounds of about 5 acres. Located down a private track the property is out of sight from the road and is a real find, hidden away with gardens, field and mature trees yet a stone's throw from the middle of the village. The house has attractive mellow stone elevations under a pitched tiled roof. The current owners extended in 2005 and the accommodation comprises wonderful central dual aspect dining room with stone fireplace housing a multi-fuel burner, dual aspect sitting room with exposed stone walls, open fire and views over the garden. The kitchen has granite work surfaces, gas fired Aga, excellent range of wall mounted and floor standing bespoke wooden units and views over the garden. Double doors from the kitchen open into a garden room which is a lovely room in which to eat or relax. The front elevation of the house faces due south and all main reception rooms and the kitchen have views out over the garden and are light and bright. A utility room and cloak room complete the ground floor and there is a good dry 15' square cellar. On the first floor there are three south facing double bedrooms and two bathrooms with the bedrooms all having good views and fitted wardrobes. A second staircase leads from the landing where there are two further double bedrooms.
Outside there is a fantastic 45' triple garage and workshop with room above, formal garden, side gardens and field. In all about 5 acres.

The property is approached via a private drive on to a gravel area with parking for a number of cars. There is a large 45' triple garage and workshop with external staircase to room above. At the front of the house is the main more formal lawn, facing south and with some mature trees and flowering shrubs. To the side a larger garden with many mature trees and pond. A gate leads to the paddock which is pasture and measures about 2.5 acres. There is a well-established and protected vegetable garden with raised beds and poly tunnel and orchard with a variety of fruiting trees. The garden and outside space is a delight at Goddards Farm with many well mown paths meandering between formal lawns and wilder areas - a rare find for so close to the middle of the village.
