 Positioned within the pretty, quiet and rural village of Laverton, the house enjoys excellent countryside views and easy access into Frome and Bath.

The front door opens into a light and airy entrance foyer, almost the size of a reception room, it provides plenty of space for furniture and makes a great first impression. There is a large built-in bookcase, under stairs storage and solid wood flooring. The kitchen/dining area is the most incredible, open plan, naturally light space. An extension adding an orangery onto the kitchen has transformed the area into a naturally light sociable layout with views over and doors onto the beautiful back gardens.

From here you progress through to the dining room, an exceptionally spacious room with plenty of space for a large table and chairs and dressers. Dual aspect windows also fill this room with light. Both formal reception rooms are decorated in neutral decor, with pale carpets and a wealth of period features.
