Rode Common, Frome, Somerset, BA11


2 Bedroom Semi-Detached House Sold


12 Rode Common offers a huge amount of scope and potential to create a super family home set in a plot of approximately 0.4 acres of gardens and grounds.

The property requires a scheme of renovation and improvement throughout but has retained some charming period features including open fireplaces, flagstone flooring and exposed beams.

The ground floor comprises an entrance hall with doors leading to the three reception rooms with the kitchen accessed from the dining room. An inner hallway, with a conservatory entrance from the rear, links the older part of the cottage to a more modern extension which provides a room that could be used as a kitchen, a shower room and a large open sitting room with a mezzanine area above. This part of the property could be used as a self contained annex, air b and b or as part of the main accommodation.

On the first floor there is a pleasant open landing with doors leading to the two double bedrooms and bathroom.


The gardens lie to the front, side and rear with the front garden planted mainly with trees and mature shrubs which provide a high degree of privacy and shelter. The rear garden is laid to lawn and also has a number of mature trees and shrubs. To one side is an area that was previously cultivated as a vegetable garden, but now needs some attention. There is a former bothy at the far end of the garden and a greenhouse.

To the side of the house is a gravelled driveway and parking area with space for several vehicles and a useful detached garage with a workshop to the rear.


Completion has been set for Thursday 28th March 2024 or earlier by arrangement.

Registering to bid and Administration fee

Cooper and Tanner require all bidders who wish to bid at our Auction to register beforehand. As part of the registration process, you will be asked to provide card details in order that the Buyer’s Administration Fee of £1295 inc VAT can be paid if you are successful. A week before the auction a hold will be placed on your account for this sum, which will then be released if you are unsuccessful. This fee will only be taken if you are the successful buyer. The fee is retained by Cooper and Tanner and does not form part of your deposit or completion settlement. Please also be aware that the Buyer’s Administration fee is payable per lot purchased. If you are successful in purchasing more than one lot, we will contact you following the auction to take subsequent payments for additional lots bought. All checks required by current anti-money laundering legislation must be satisfactorily completed, as part of the registration process before prior approval to bid will be granted; this will include providing proof of funds.


Successful bidders will be required to pay to the Cooper and Tanner Client Account the deposit of 10% of the purchase price within 24 hours of the auction. The account details will be provided to the successful bidder on conclusion of the auction. Once funds are cleared, they will be transferred on to the account of the solicitor acting for the seller. Please ensure that funds are in an account suitable to be able to make an Electronic Transfer from.
