DESCRIPTION Monmouth House is an imposing Grade II listed Georgian house with two shops beneath in the centre of Frome. There is gated driveway parking and landscaped gardens.
ACCOMMODATION The accommodation displays a number of typical Georgian features including high ceilings, picture rails, shuttered sash windows and fireplaces. There is an impressive entrance hall which is very light and airy, doors lead into the living room and the dining room which in turn leads up to the kitchen. Both reception rooms feature magnificent sash windows with shutters and fireplaces. The kitchen is complete with a number of wall and base units and a breakfast island which provides further storage and granite worktops.
On the lower ground floor there are two commercial units, both of which are currently let out.
On the first floor there is another reception room with a woodburning stove, two double bedrooms (one of which has an en-suite bathroom), and a separate shower room.
On the second floor there are three further double bedrooms and another bathroom.
OUTSIDE Monmouth House stands proudly in the centre of Frome. To the front is a gravelled driveway which is enclosed by stone walls and wrought iron gates. An impressive staircase leads up to the front door. To the side of the house is a raised decked seating area that is perfect for entertaining and al-fresco dining on a summers evening. There are further landscaped gardens with a number of seating areas, views across the Town and a variety of shrubs and some mature trees adding to the privacy. The Bastion gardens which form part of the estate have an additional locked gate which can be opened for public events if wished.
AGENT'S NOTE The Bastion Gardens are subject to 20 days a year open to the public. Access is at the rear of the Bastion Gardens and therefore does not impinge on the main house and grounds.
