  • A rare find so close to town

A rare find so close to town, this handsome detached grade II listed Georgian townhouse with large walled gardens and a 1 bed annexe within walking distance of Frome town centre, dates from 1607 with later additions. There are a wealth of period features throughout including working shutters and original fireplaces. Situated in the conservation area, Garden House would make a lovely family home or could work well to accommodate multi generational living or indeed turning into a B&B which the current owners had intended and was run as a successful Airbnb for 2 years. The property has undergone partial renovation including new flat roofs, boilers/plumbing and re-wiring with integrated smoke alarm system and has planning permission in place which has been activated to make numerous changes if desired. The current owners have installed a commercial grade smoke alarm system and sophisticated hot water system catering for up to six bathrooms used concurrently. On the ground floor a columned entrance and front door with decorative fanlight leads to a lovely dining hall with intricate cornicing, stone fireplace and sash window. From here doors lead to a beautiful drawing room with sash windows, French doors, Georgian Fireplace and cornicing. A further reception room with garden views, fireplace and cornicing, would make a perfect formal dining room. An inner passage leads to the kitchen with large inglenook fireplace housing the cooker with space for a dining table and leads into the large family room with original restored flag stones and bi fold doors opening onto a terrace. From the kitchen there is a covered walkway with a separate entrance from the front leading to the garage, workshop, store room/dark room, w/c and door to the backyard. There is also a laundry room with w/c and a cellar with good ceiling height which has access from both the kitchen and living room. A double height hallway with stunning sweeping staircase and reeded handrail, leads to the first floor landing and four double bedrooms, one with new ensuite with a jack and jill door to a small bedroom plus a dressing room. Two of the bedrooms are currently arranged as a self contained flat with kitchenette and new bathroom. On the top floor are two further doubles with stunning beams, a further bathroom and storage room with internal window and loft access. There are solar panels installed on one flat roof and there is permission to fit more on a second roof. Externally there are beautiful and very private walled gardens surrounding the house, a real haven for wildlife, with a variety of shrubs and trees, including a magnificent Tulip, Fig and glorious Magnolia. There is an elaborate pond with a fountain and waterfall feature and Beech hedging which screens a kitchen garden beyond and an orchard with apple and cherry trees plus a greenhouse and wooded area adding great potential for the aspiring gardener. In Frome it is rare to find a house of this size with such a large garden so close to the town centre. The gardens are an exceptional feature and provide a tranquil and quiet space. There is also a summer house with electricity and TV aerial. In addition water and electric power points are located throughout the garden. The driveway has parking for 2/3 cars in front of a double garage. A large part of the house was redecorated inside and out last summer. The thriving town of Frome offers great amenities for all ages and a good choice of schools and activities for children. Bath and Bristol are within commuting distance and there are rail links to London Paddington. Council Tax Band - F, Services - Mains electricity, Mains gas, Mains water, Mains drainage The property is offered with no onward chain.
