HISTORY
This converted Georgian former farmhouse was once the only building in the area, surrounded by fields and woodland.  In 1908 it became “Gooders Dairy Farm”, the business being started by John Gooder, a successful bookmaker.  Their seclusion didn’t last very long, as Tudor style villas soon came to surround the farmhouse, which itself was altered in 1930 and enlarged by the addition of the corner tower.
