Rag Tag is an attractive detached house dating back to 1975, constructed of stone elevations under a tiled roof, with recently installed UPVC double glazed windows. The property is situated in the centre of its plot, with delightful gardens. Rag Tag has been looked after by the present owner and is decorated with a neutral tone palette, giving it a bright light feel throughout. The property has spacious rooms with high ceilings and is a solid house of its era.

There is plenty of room to extend with the necessary consents. There is an attractive, fully fitted kitchen/breakfast room on the ground floor enjoying views of the garden and rural views beyond. The sitting room is a double aspect that boasts plenty of light and leads to a garden room and a separate dining room. Complimenting the ground floor is a particularly useful utility/boot room with a cloakroom. The utility room has access to the garage and office/workroom.

The first floor was originally 4 bedrooms but now has 3 large double bedrooms, the master benefitting from double aspect windows which frame the views. Additionally, there is a well-appointed bathroom with a separate shower.

There is plenty of parking in front of the double garage. The village of Goatacre has a very diverse active community with equestrian, agriculture, and countryside walks in abundance, yet has easy access to towns and motorways. Goatacre is about 4 miles (6 km) north of Calne and 1 mile (1.6 km) south of Lyneham on the A3102 road. It is in the parish of Hilmarton, and the closest major town is Swindon, some 10 miles (16 km) to the northeast.


Rag Tag is approached via the front door leading to an entrance porch into a spacious hallway with wooden laminate flooring and stairs leading to the first floor. Off the hallway, there is a bright sitting room with a coal effect fire and walled brickwork with shelving. Sliding doors lead to the garden room, which enjoys a pleasant outlook towards the garden. Also, there is a dining room from the hallway which has a large window overlooking the rear garden flowing into the sitting room.

Opposite the dining room, there is a kitchen breakfast room with a range of wooden wall and base units, space for cooker, fridge freezer and dishwasher. The utility room has a door leading to the garden, a space for a washing machine, a stainless steel sink unit, wall and base units with work surfaces and entry to the cloakroom. A door leads to the double garage, where there is an oil-fired central heating boiler. At the rear of the garage, there is a workroom/office. The layout of Rag Tag has a great flow ideal for family living.
