Grade II listed small manor house in beautiful secluded grounds.
Goodwin Manor is a handsome Grade II listed house which has origins dating back to the 16th century on a site which is believed to date back to Roman times.
The house has undergone many improvements in recent times including the addition of a practical and sympathetically designed ground floor rear hall/utility room extension. This fine period family house is in an unusually private setting in this very picturesque village 8 miles from Cambridge and provides approximately 3,145 sq ft of accommodation.
The main range features exposed timbering, leaded light casement windows and a steeply pitched roof with diaper pattern tiles. Internally the house has well-proportioned rooms which are uncharacteristically light, and many original features including exposed brick flooring, wide Inglenook fireplaces, plank and panelled doors.
The kitchen has a four oven Aga set into a deep Inglenook and a range of units with integrated Gaggenau oven and a dishwasher. There are three fine reception rooms all with outlooks over the garden, two featuring recently installed wood burning stoves. There is a study off the sitting room and, beneath part of the ground floor, a two room wine cellar.
At first floor level there are four bedrooms, two with en suite shower rooms, which along with the family bathroom have been recently refurbished. The fifth bedroom is on the next level together with access to two large attic rooms lit by conservation roof lights. The present owners have installed removable double glazed secondary glazing to the original windows and insulated the attic rooms.
Outside, the property is situated centrally in a large secluded site which is thought to have originally been moated. Remnants of historic features can be seen in the mainly lawned gardens which are secluded and contain many mature trees.
Approached via electrically operated twin five bar gates, a shingled drive leads up to the L shaped garage block with five sets of hardwood double doors and approximately 1,673 sq ft of floor space providing parking for up to 10 cars but offering potential for other uses (subject to any necessary consents). Part of the building has a storage loft above which is accessed via stairs from the central section.
Beyond this building there is an attractive pond edged with timber sleepers and with a water feature to one end. To the rear of the house is a wide stone terrace and in one corner of the site a walled and fenced outdoor swimming pool (requiring some improvement) along with a small brick outbuilding housing the filtration and heating equipment.
A further range of outbuildings are situated alongside the southern boundary and include a timber clad barn, brick former stable and an open sided log barn.
In all about 2.09 acres.
