DESCRIPTION 18 Fromefield is a fine example of one of Frome's historic Grade II listed properties, which dates back to the 17th Century and is understood to have been part of the town's Cloth or Rope industry. Successfully combining a great family home with the space for business premises, it offers versatile accommodation that would suit many uses and requirements.
The commercial element of the property comprises a good, open plan area that was formerly run as a successful Post Office counter along side retail space (stationery, cards, confectionery etc) There is the potential to change the use of this area, subject of course to gaining the relevant consents, it could be incorporated into the main residence or converted to provide separate accommodation. Accessed from the shop is a useful store with a WC. There is also a separate staff kitchen area which is now being used as a utility room with a door leading to the garden and steps up to the residential accommodation.
The residential accommodation starts with an entrance hall, with a separate front door from Rodden Road. Part of this level is used as a snug/tv lounge and then stairs, with storage underneath, rise to the first floor. From the landing doors open into the study/bedroom 4 and kitchen. Stairs rise to the second floor. Beyond the kitchen is a lovely light, open sitting room with wood burning stove, stairs to the second floor and a door to the master bedroom, with a recently fitted en suite shower room. The second floor comprises two further double bedrooms, a dressing area and a super bathroom. One of the landings on this floor is used as a dressing room and the other could be a shared space between the two bedrooms.
OUTSIDE To the side of the house is a pleasant enclosed garden area which is a real sun trap with patio and sitting area. Beyond the garden is a useful double garage and shed with parking for two vehicles to the front and a carport providing an additional space too.
