Situation

Set in Frome's Conservation Area close to the town centre, a choice of Good and Outstanding schools and a short walk down to the railway station, local conveniences and supermarket. Renovated throughout by the current owners to create a majestic living space with exposed wooden floorboards and stonework, many original features and a touch of the modern in the 25' long kitchen breakfast room with bi-folding doors and roof lantern that transform this space to allow the outside in. Frome town itself is one of Somersets finest artisan towns which boasts a fantastic spirit of togetherness. The town prides itself on the great selection of independently run shops that line the historical cobbled streets; while away your days sipping coffee in one of the cafes or buying gifts from the amazing boutiques. Frome is well known for its weekly markets and its monthly artisan market on a Sunday which draws people from all around. There is a wide range of supermarkets, public houses, banks, theatres, schools, college and a sports center as you would expect. There is a rail service that is on the Paddington Line and also feeds into the cities of Bath & Bristol. Transport links will have you quickly out onto the ring road and the cities of Bath, Bristol & Salisbury are well within reach.

Entrance Porch

Walk up through the front garden along the path into the enclosed porch with its traditional tiled floor, ideal for getting out of the rain and taking off your shoes and coats before entering the main house.

Entrance Hall

As you open the main door with its etched obscure glazing you get a full taste of some of the features to come. Striking traditional tiled floor, feature archway and high ceilings. Doors accessing the main rooms, a large, well-lit under-stairs cupboard, and stairs to the first floor landing with new carpet runner, white-painted original wooden spindles, and banister painted in the popular Farrow & Ball ‘Railings’.

Lounge

14' 7'' (into Bay) x 12' 4'' (4.44m x 3.76m)

A stunning room with its deep bay window overlooking the front garden, period coving, ceiling rose, stripped wooden floor boards and feature fireplace. A lovely place to relax in the evenings.

Dining Room

11' 5'' x 10' 1'' (max) (3.48m x 3.07m)

A traditional dining room with a feature fire surround and tiled hearth, and double doors that open out onto the rear garden. A great room for formally entertaining your guests, this newly carpeted room could just as easily lend itself to being used as a study or playroom.

Kitchen Breakfast Room

25' 9'' (max) x 8' 5'' (7.84m x 2.56m)

This room has been designed by the current owners to provide a modern social living space that will have your friends in awe. Still keeping traditional features such as exposed stone work, wooden floor boards and latch key timber door, the modern has been blended in with the recent addition of a roof lantern and large bi-folding doors which allow the outside in and really brighten up this room. The kitchen itself is comprised of a range of floor units in Cashmere Gloss with solid beech work-surface over, inset sink/drainer and space for dishwasher under. Clever matching window seat with cupboards under. Large Stoves range with five gas burners and mosaic tiled splash back, space for fridge freezer beside kitchen doorway or a larger American fridge-freezer beside bifold. Recently fitted Worcester combi boiler.

Cloakroom

7' 8'' x 3' 8'' (2.34m x 1.12m)

Utility Room

12' 7'' (max) x 6' 11'' (3.83m x 2.11m)

A very handy addition to this property is this utility space with work-surface to one wall, plumbing for washing machine and space for a tumble drier under. Door opening out onto the rear garden also allows for great access if coming in from the parking to the rear. Plenty of space for your muddy boots and wet coats.

First Floor Landing

14' 10'' x 5' 5'' (4.52m x 1.65m)

As you walk up from the ground floor you are greeted by the split level landing with access to the third bedroom and then turn to step up on to the main landing. A large, light space with plenty of room for linen storage. Access to all rooms and the loft which is part boarded.

Bedroom 1

14' 7'' (into bay) x 9' 11'' (4.44m x 3.02m)

There is something about a bedroom with a large bay window that I have always loved and this room definitely doesn't disappoint. Wooden floor boards and feature fire place with tiled hearth and space for bedroom furniture either side. Bay window overlooks the front garden and brings in lots of light.

Bedroom 2

11' 5'' (max) x 10' 0'' (3.48m x 3.05m)

A stunning bedroom with great views out over the rear garden and over the roof tops of Frome. Wooden floor boards and plenty of space to decide how you are going to best layout the bedroom furniture and storage.

Bedroom 3

13' 3'' (max) x 8' 1'' (4.04m x 2.46m)

Typically with period properties the third bedroom can be a bit tight. However in this case you will find a lovely sized double room with plenty of options with regard to layout and storage options. Also enjoying the views over the roof tops of Frome.

Family Bathroom

7' 11'' (max) x 5' 5'' (2.41m x 1.65m)

A great space with a blend of the old and the new. Exposed stone work to the window surrounding the wooden window seat. Recently fitted bathroom suite with L-shaped bath with separate amazon rain shower over, the mixer taps also have a hand held shower piece. Low level wc, wash hand basin and tile effect flooring.

Front Garden

The front garden is tucked away behind a stone wall and iron gate. Paths lead up to the front door and to the side access gate. The garden is mainly laid to lawn with herbaceous borders.

Garage and Parking

To the rear of the property is a rare off-road parking space with garage alongside that has been recently refurbished with new roof, up and over door, double-glazed side access door and rear window. Wooden gate leads onto the rear garden.

Rear Garden

Step out through the bi-folding doors onto a large patio area with stone wall running down the length of the garden. This is perfect for al-fresco dining and for that cheeky morning coffee. Plenty of room for garden sofas and/or dining table and chairs here, overlooking the large feature area of split-level lawn. The garden path leads past a handy bin storage with external tap to the rear gate. All in all this 76' long sunny garden has plenty to offer the keenest of gardeners or if you are after something more low key it can be kept in its current low maintenance lay out.
