DESCRIPTION A Truly Magnificent Grade II listed Elizabethan Manor House that stands proudly amidst its own private, beautifully landscaped gardens. Hidden behind tall stone walls with entry via automatic gates down a sweeping gravel driveway, flanked by huge 600-year-old beech trees. Stonewall Manor is situated on the south side of the ancient market town of Frome in a small valley of one of the most picturesque and historic areas.
Described as one of the finest examples of a 16th-century stone built manor, it enjoys a display of virtually all original characteristics: stone gabled roofs, mullioned and leaded light windows, historic fireplaces, decorative plaster ceiling mouldings, oak stripped floors, 15th-century paneling, huge oak beams.
The accommodation is arranged over three floors and is well proportioned and extremely flexible. Somebody wanting to use this beautiful house as a family home may wish to reconfigure the space slightly but as it stands the house provides 9 bedrooms, 3 reception rooms, 3 bathrooms and a kitchen with separate utility.
In addition to the main house there is a beautifully presented 4 bedroom cottage in the grounds that would make a fantastic annexe and an equally great extra income if somebody wished to continue to use it for holiday rental.
The whole property is in fact currently run as an extremely successful business, renting the two houses out for holidays and extravagant parties.
OUTSIDE Stonewall Manor is set behind a set of secure electric gates that open into a long sweeping driveway leading to the front of the house. There is parking for a number of vehicles and large well established private walled gardens. The gardens provide a number of seating areas and large lawns that are decorated with mature trees. A fabulous safe haven for chilldren to build dens and play sport. All in all, there is just under an acre.
