Positioned in a magical rural setting in the very heart of the Hambleden valley
Upper Goddards Farm is an attractive Grade II listed house
which is believed to have 17th century origins. Predominantly
built of brick and flint under a clay tile roof, the house has been
extended over time.
Upper Goddards Farm sits in a tranquil position and is
surrounded by beautiful countryside within the Chilterns Area
of Outstanding Natural Beauty. It is positioned on the eastern
side of the valley and enjoys sunshine throughout the majority
of the day.
Accommodation on the ground floor comprises the sitting room,
dining room, kitchen/breakfast room, games room, cloakroom
with power shower, utility/laundry room and an integral garage. The sitting room and the dining room are beamed and each have a log burning stove and the original tiled floors. The kitchen has maintenance-free granite work surfaces, Neff built-in equipment and French doors to a paved terrace,
On the first floor there is a principal bedroom with en suite
bathroom, five further bedrooms and a family bathroom. These rooms also have numerous beams. Bedroom 6 has its own external entrance and is currently used as an annexe.
From the games room there is a staircase to a separate first
floor office with its own entrance, and which could be converted into two more bedrooms if required or even a self-contained annexe (subject to planning permission).
At the rear of the house there is an extensive area of brick terracing for outside dining and enjoying the beautiful surroundings.
Upper Goddards Farm is fortunate to have various outbuildings, all with electricity. These include the old granary with clay tiles on four staddle stones (used as a workshop), a feed store or potentially an outside office, a gym or a second workshop. There is also a coal store /log store/tool shed.
The detached oak framed garage has two open bays and one with double doors and a staircase to an extensive storage area above. There is ample further parking for other cars.
There is also an attractive lily pond with a private sitting area,
an orchard, a soft fruit cage, and a rabbit proof vegetable plot
adjacent to a National Trust designed Alitex greenhouse with
electric heating and lighting. The sandstone paved terrace in front of the greenhouse is an unrivalled place for a BBQ with views over Skirmett and the beautiful Hambleden valley towards Turville. There are also three chicken runs and a wild flower meadow. The house, orchard and gardens extend to approximately one acre.
An equestrian dream: there are four post & railed paddocks with water troughs, a grass training arena and 2bay movable stable. The paddocks have direct access to a bridlepath to Adams Wood, and via Shogmoor Lane to another bridlepath some 300m away leading to Parmoor. The various paddocks amount to about 7.6 acres.
