5 Bedroom House Sold
Culverhill House is a striking and attractive Georgian house, set in the Frome conservation area. Enjoying an extensive plot, there are large gardens and driveway parking for up to three cars in addition to a former coach house which represents an exciting development opportunity.
The accommodation throughout the house is well proportioned with a fine display of period features. An impressive entrance hall welcomes you into the home, with reception rooms either side and the kitchen at the far end. The two reception rooms are bright rooms that are filled with natural light through the sash style double glazed windows. The right-hand room has been a fabulous multi-purpose space that over the years has been a study, a music room and a dining room. The living room features picture rails and a wood burning stove with an attractive stone surround. A door from the living room leads into the sunroom that spans almost the full depth of the house and is a fantastic space to entertain. Towards the back of the house there is a large open kitchen/dining room which was completely refurbished just 3 years ago. There are a stylish range of wall and base units, a Range oven with hob, room for further appliances, a large built-in dresser and space for a family size table and chairs. From the kitchen a door leads through to a substantial, naturally lit utility/boot room which has lots of storage, plumbing for utilities and also gives access into the downstairs shower room, completed in 2021.
A staircase from the kitchen/dining room leads down to the cellar which provides further storage space and houses the controls for the solar panels and hot water tank.
On the first floor there are three double bedrooms and a family bathroom. Bedroom one is complete with an attractive cast iron fireplace and wooden floorboards. On the second floor there are two further rooms (potentially one bedroom and reception room). There is also a shower room off the bedroom, a perfect set up for guests.
To the front of the house there are attractive wall enclosed gardens with a gated flagstone path leading to the front door. There is a wonderful large private courtyard garden to the left-hand side of the house, beyond the gates, which doubles up as driveway parking for three vehicles. Beyond the parking area is a double storey former coach house, built from stone, that currently provides further parking and storage, however, subject to gaining the relevant permissions, we believe there is huge potential for this to be converted to an annex or Airbnb space. It is fitted with power and light already. There is also a substantial wood store.
Further gardens lie behind the old coach house which are laid predominantly to lawn with three apple trees, a patio seating area and a garden shed/outbuilding.
Beyond the existing hedge boundary, there is a substantial piece of land which our vendors are currently in the process of purchasing, and it will therefore form part of this sale. Please see our site plan which shows the house and the additional parcel of ground, and the relationship between the two. This garden space will be seeded to lawn and has been fence enclosed.
