Full description

Tenure: Freehold

A charming Grade II* listed village home, offering
a great deal of character and historical presence.


The thriving Somerset village of Rode provides various amenities including a primary school, church, post office and 3 public houses along with a children's playing area and a popular local cricket club. A wider range of amenities is available at Frome, approximately 5.8 miles south west, and at Bradford on Avon, some 4.8 miles north east, while the city of Bath is within 10 miles. Bath is a World Heritage Site famed for its Georgian architecture and Roman heritage and enjoys a wealth of cultural, business and recreational facilities. Rode is also well placed for access to Bristol and London - via the A303/M3. Westbury is within 7 miles and provides regular train services to London Paddington (approximately 86 minutes) and Bath (approximately 25 minutes). Bristol International Airport is within 26 miles. There are many excellent schools nearby in Bath and further afield including Dauntseys, Downside, All Hallows, Sherborne and Millfield.


8 High Street is a charming listed village home, offering a great deal of character and historical presence. The property was constructed in the 15th century with later additions in the 16th, 18th and 19th centuries. It is in need of some modernisation but the room proportions and layout offer excellent potential. There is the additional benefit of planning permission having been granted to extend the current kitchen area to create a larger kitchen/dining/family space, as well as internal alterations to the first floor to provide an extra bedroom (full details available under planning reference 2016/0449/LBC).

Internally, the accommodation is arranged primarily over two levels but with steps up and down between some of the rooms, adding to the unique character of the property. There are beautiful original features, including a fine moulded cross-beam ceiling in the sitting room with intricate carving and a Tudor rose centre boss. There are also fireplaces to both reception rooms and exposed beams. Externally, the detail is equally as appealing with rubble stone elevations under a handsome Roman tile trussed roof.

The three generous reception rooms on the ground floor sit at the front of the house. There is also a kitchen, utility room, bedroom with en suite shower room and a useful study. A staircase from the sitting room leads to the first floor where there are currently three further double bedrooms and a family bathroom.

This unique property fronts onto the High Street in the heart of the popular village of Rode. Vehicular access to the side of the home leads to a parking area and stone-built double garage. Quite rarely for such a village property, the gardens are of a good size and laid mainly to lawn. There is also a useful external store attached to the rear of the property.


8 High Street is situated at the heart of the village of Rode, which is accessible via the A36 from Bath or the A361 from Trowbridge or Frome.
