Full description

Tenure: Freehold

A spacious 17th Century farmhouse with flexible living accommodation, detached annexe with scope for enlargement, barn and generous gardens and grounds now in need of modernisation. No chain.


Goods Farm has been in the same ownership for just shy of 40 years and comes to the market following the passing of the current owner. The property which in parts dates back to the 17th Century boasts a wealth of character features namely large inglenook fireplaces, exposed timber roof beams and a traditional cross passage hall to name but a few. In the past part of the main house has been divided and let out for additional income which could easily be continued or it could accommodate a dependant relative. In brief the accommodation comprises a cross passage hallway, dining room, sitting room, utility room, downstairs bathroom, large living room with inglenook fireplace and kitchen/breakfast room. There are two staircases to the first floor where there are six double bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and a shower/dressing room. A loft ladder on this floor gives access to the roof which is boarded and spans the complete length of the house. This could suit a number of different uses i.e. additional living accommodation, playroom or office (STP). Outside the property is a detached one bed annexe with a two storey
barn adjoining which again could be utilised for further accommodation (STP) if required. Also within the gardens is a courtyard for parking, a large detached barn and garage. A small garden lies to the front with large lawned gardens to the rear. This unique property could suit any number of uses and offers fantastic flexibility.

The property is situated within the village of Puriton where a good range of facilities can be found to include; a public house, butchers, hairdressers, post office, church and infant school. Ideally located for the commuter as access to the M5 motorway at junction 23 is approx 1/2 mile distant. The town of Bridgwater is approximately 5 miles distant and the town of Street about 12. Both towns offer a wider range of shopping and leisure facilities.

The property is approached off Middle Street through a set of wrought iron gates over a concrete driveway which leads to the side of the property and to the rear where there is a
car parking and turning area for several vehicles. Here access can be gained to the outbuildings, large detached barn and garage. Within this courtyard is a two storey barn currently used as a workshop and adjacent is the elevations of another building now in need of re-roofing and repair. To the rear of the barn is a large predominantly lawned garden with herbaceous borders interspersed with a number of mature trees shrubs and bushes. To the front of the property is a small lawned garden with herbaceous borders. The gardens and outbuildings are a real selling point to this property, the outbuildings especially which are very adaptable and can suit a number of alternative used subject to the necessary planning consent.
