Property Description

Set on a pretty street in the heart of the Catherine Hill Conservation Area, this lovely 4 bed family home, part of the regeneration of the former Rawlings woollen mill, has the best of all worlds. A desirable location and a sympathetically designed contemporary property that fits seamlessly into this historic part of Frome while offering all the benefits of a modern home.

This house really is all about the location which is perfect for anyone wanting to be tucked away in a quiet side street but still within walking distance of Catherine Hill with its independent shops and cafes and the town centre which offers many high street brands.

Wrought iron gates open into a small, landscaped front garden with a lovely weeping cherry tree and a pathway which leads up to the front door. The door itself has a really interesting detail – an old map of Frome engraved into the glass. Inside, a hallway with downstairs cloakroom and stairs to the upper floors leads into the bright and airy open plan kitchen/dining and living area with solid wood floor. Stretching to almost 30 feet this is a wonderful relaxing and entertaining space and great for families wanting a central socialising area which is big enough for everyone to share. The glass roof of the conservatory-style extension floods the room with natural light and with fitted bookcases complement the style of the house. , Substantial sliding doors  open out into the courtyard garden which faces South West and is a lovely private space with room for a table and chairs and surrounded with stone edged raised borders and terracotta planters.

The kitchen is fitted with contemporary cream shaker units with oak effect worktops, a  gas hob with extractor, electric oven, brand new integrated Beko dishwasher and Bosch washing machine. Period style shutters are fitted to the kitchen window to give a bit of privacy. The property is double glazed throughout.

On the first floor is a spacious main bedroom overlooking  the garden at the rear. Fitted, glazed wardrobes along one wall provide lots of storage space and there ample room for a king sized bed as well as all the bedroom furniture you need. There is an ensuite off the bedroom with a large, walk in shower and chrome towel rail.  Across the landing is another really good sized double bedroom which looks out over South Parade, part of which is being used as a home office.  From the landing stairs rise up to the top floor and two further large and bright double bedrooms, one of which has a velux window with rooftop views across the town. A family bathroom with shower over the bath and chrome towel rail complete this lovely home. The accommodation is very versatile with the option to make the top floor into a bedroom and chillout room for a teenager or perhaps an AirBnB space.

The house is decorated in a neutral palette ready for the new owner to stamp their own mark on it but in the meantime offers a ready-to-move-into home.

Outside there is a gate from the garden to the garage which offers additional secure storage and allocated parking. The garage has been insulated and has power and light. A good place for a home gym maybe? There is also an allocated parking space, a particularly desirable feature in this area, where parking is often at a premium.

As one of only 8 houses in this development and the only semi-detached one they don't often come on the market. This property is a rare find, offering the perfect balance of space and location. It’s an ideal choice for those seeking a peaceful lifestyle but with easy access to all local facilities. Early viewing is highly recommended.

Frome is a popular Somerset town which is regularly voted one of the best places to live in the South West. It is home to a very creative community of writers, artists and musicians with the music venue, The Cheese and Grain, having previous hosted a surprise gig by the Foo Fighters as well as Paul McCartney's pre-Glastonbury gig last year. It offers a variety of high street names and a large selection of independent shops and cafes, particularly on the iconic Catherine Hill. The town hosts a very popular independent market held on the first Sunday of every month between March and December and an Arts Festival in July. Frome was one of the first places in the country to have a Community Fridge where residents and shop owners can donate excess food to the community to prevent food waste and also set up the first Share Shop where you can borrow anything from a highchair to a garden strimmer for a small fee. There is a leisure centre with pool, several theatres, a train station with good links to London, Cardiff, Dorset and Devon and whatever your hobby or passion there is bound to be a club or society which will welcome you.
