If you are looking for that perfect blend of character and modern convenience, then look no further. Goddard House, built in 2004 is immaculate and offers a hassle free alternative for anyone looking to be part of Village life, without all the maintenance that comes with an older property. The property has good size rooms which have excellent ceiling height – on both floors! (unusual for a cottage style house).
The current owners, with help from professional trades, have embarked on improving the property with great attention to detail. Externally these include well-designed new windows and doors, (to suit the building style ) two electric Roller-Shutter Garage Doors, new fascia and guttering, painting, and a local Master Thatcher has replaced the ridge, cleaned and dressed the water-reed thatch.
Internally the improvements continue and enhance, with oak flooring, new oil fired central heating, plus a Multi-fuel stove in the lounge. Matching vertical blinds & certain poles in most rooms, enhance the neutral décor.
Entrance into a spacious hallway leads to a multi-aspect sitting room with a pair of doors opening out to and overlooking to southerly facing garden, as does the kitchen and dinning room, which also has a door to the garden, allowing easy access for outside dinning on the adjacent paved area.
Off the hallway is a study (currently a TV room) a cloakroom and useful utility / laundry room with door access into the garage/workshop which is approx 6m x 6m.
Upstairs the landing is also spacious, off which are 4 pleasant sunny bedrooms, a family bathroom, the master bedroom has an immaculate en-suite plus a dressing area to complement the accommodation.
Well worth a look, enabling you to appreciate the scale and standard of the accommodation on offer, perhaps adding to your `list to view` as the `Mystery House`.
