Interact with the virtual reality tour and call Forest Marble 24/7 to view this outstanding Georgian home, found just moments away from the tremendously popular town centre of Frome. This character townhouse will offer its new owner accommodation over four floors with generous reception space and substantial bedrooms; beset throughout with period touches such as high ceilings, sash windows, wooden floors and picture rails to mention but a few. The property's facade, with its oriel window, leaves a striking first impression of the house which continues to offer more of itself as you move through the reception rooms and living spaces, from hand painted wood panelling to the original styling of the window shutters. The home has been modernised in recent years and now blends the charm and character of the Georgian Period with the practical touches of modern life.
Sitting close to the town centre, you will find yourself within close proximity to the local nursery & primary school, train station, local post office store, fish and chip shop and supermarket. A short stroll will take you into the main town itself. Frome town itself is one of Somerset's finest artisan towns which boasts a fantastic spirit of togetherness. There is a wide range of supermarkets, public houses, banks, theatres, schools, college and a sports centre as you might expect. However Frome 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 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.
Step through the wooden front door and into the quintessential period hallway which proudly features wooden flooring, cornice detailing and embossed dado features. From here you have access to the first reception room, the kitchen at the rear of the house as well as stairs to lower and upper levels.
