About this property

  • Believed to date from 1637 and sat in a plot of 0.6 acres, Great Goodwin Farmhouse is an exceptional Grade II listed home with an abundance of character and charm. The property has retained a number of period features including original stonework, exposed beams and brick fireplaces.

    The property enjoys close proximity to the amenities of Merrow and Guildford and is perfect for family living with accommodation extending to circa 4000 sq ft.

    Upon entering, the generous reception hall leads to the dining room and a sitting room with access to the gardens, there is a large study and a spacious and light conservatory.

    The well-appointed kitchen with Rayburn range cooker has space for informal dining. The house has the added benefit of a secondary kitchen/utility room off the study.

    Bedroom accommodation offers flexibility with the ability to reconfigure if required. There are four well-proportioned bedrooms on the first floor and two bathrooms whilst two additional bedrooms can be found on the second floor. The largest bedroom room has a balcony with pretty views and access down to the garden.

    Outside, the gardens are spectacular and have been well maintained by the current owner, the borders are well stocked with plants and shrubs and the garden is framed by a number of mature trees, hedging and a pretty flint wall. The gardens are private with a large area of lawn, a well-established vegetable garden, an assortment of fruit trees and pleasant seating areas to enjoy the summer months.

    To the front is a large driveway providing ample parking and a large two bay garage with utility room and WC. There is also an electric car charging point close to the kitchen door.

    Great Goodwin Farmhouse is an excellent opportunity to acquire a unique period home and is being offered to the market for the first time in over thirty years.
