No 25 is a Victorian end of terrace on a quiet residential street in the fashionable Lower Keyford area of Frome. A great family house offering the chance to put one's own stamp on and improve with extremely spacious accommodation over three floors, the generous rooms are full of light, with high ceilings and original sash windows.
An attractive stone arch frames the front door, opening into a light and airy hallway with original encaustic floor tiles. To the side is an extremely spacious, light filled living room, triple aspect and with double folding doors in the middle, offering the flexibility of one big open space – fabulous for entertaining - or two separate rooms. The original Victorian fireplace is the centrepiece. A large sunny kitchen is fitted at one end with units in a stylish grey, with integrated oven and hob, and has ample room at the other end for a dining table. A door from here leads outside. Off the kitchen is a large utility/laundry room, with another door to outside, and a downstairs loo.
The attractive Victorian staircase has its original turned bannisters all the way up to the top and both landings have original wooden floors. On the first floor are two bedrooms and a bathroom. The spacious principal bedroom is double aspect, with a pretty outlook to the front, and has a deep walk-in cupboard. On the top floor there are two further very generous size bedrooms, one with an en-suite bathroom.
To the side of the house is an attractive cobblestone courtyard with a lovely Magnolia tree in the middle – the perfect spot to sit with a cup of coffee in the morning sunshine. To the rear is a shared pathway with access out to the road.
Lower Keyford is a historic part of Frome notable for its old manor house and monastery. The town centre is approximately ten minutes’ walk.
Frome is one of the South West’s leading market towns and was featured in the Sunday Times as the best place to live in Somerset. It has become a “foodie hipster haven” due to the influx of young families. The town has a comprehensive choice of retail outlets and all the usual amenities - Culturally, Frome has more than 500 listed buildings and in the 1990s the town benefited from considerable investment in the restoration of its historic buildings through the English Heritage Economic Regeneration Scheme. More recently, founded in 2013, the “Frome Independent” is an award-winning independent street market that is held on the first Sunday of every month and attracts 80,000 people a year. Frome is also known for its vibrant music and arts scene- a coup was The Foo Fighters playing at 'The Cheese and Grain'.
There are excellent transport links to Bath, Bristol and London. Within easy driving distance is the magnificent Georgian city of Bath and Bruton, a small town that has grown a big reputation in the international art world thanks to the opening of the Hauser & Wirth gallery. Babington House Hotel is just four miles away. Train links are good with a mainline railway station that connects to Westbury and from there, to London Paddington or the South West. There is also a faster line at nearby Westbury.
Frome offers several good state schools and a variety of local independent schools. It is also home to the first publicly funded Steiner Academy in the UK. There are a range of good schools in the area which include Frome Media Arts College, All Hallows, Downside, Millfield, Wells Cathedral School, Sexeys, Sunnyhill and Kings School Bruton, plus the Bath schools.
