Listed Grade II being of architectural and historic importance, Goddards was originally constructed between 1725 and 1750 with the North East wing being added in the late Victorian era. In the early 19th Century Goddards was ’a Young Gentlewoman’s Academy’ run by Elizabeth and Jane Norris and visited regularly by Charles Lamb and described by Mary Lamb in ’Mrs Leicesters School’.

The house is constructed of mellow red brick under a clay tiled roof, part mansard to the 19th Century addition. Internally, the house combines light and spacious reception rooms with comfortable bedroom accommodation on the first and second floors. Of particular note is the well-proportioned drawing room centred on an attractive open fireplace and views over the gardens and grounds. On the second floor, there is additional bedroom accommodation and a self-contained flat.

The gardens and grounds provide a charming, tranquil setting for the house. Divided into "rooms" and laid mostly to lawn, an attractive ornamental pond is centrally situated with a classical pavilion beyond, providing a focal point and overlooked by a paved terrace.

To the south beyond a pleached Beech tree avenue is a further area of lawn with a strand of silver birches and further mature specimen trees whilst to the north is the old vegetable garden.

Lying to the north of the house is a traditional red brick garage block with an adjoining utility room. Planning consent was previously granted for the extension of this building to provide secondary accommodation.

There was also planning consent for the construction of an indoor swimming pool on the south lawn.
