Description: Frome Manor is a beautiful stone built Grade II listed manor house located on the edge of the pretty village of Bishops Frome. Care has been taken to retain many of the original features including large sash windows with shutters, polished oak floors, open fireplaces and exposed ceiling beams. Large windows and high ceilings create a feeling of space and the property, set within its own grounds of around 2.73 acres,
occupies a tranquil setting with stunning views over the surrounding Herefordshire countryside. The oast house currently incorporates a swimming pool, entertainment area and gym but planning permission has been granted to convert this into living accommodation (see Agent's Note). To the ground floor one enters the property via a wonderful oak floored hallway with sitting room area showcasing a beautiful Jacobean fireplace with Clearview wood burning stove set on a stone hearth with ornate carved surround, beautiful exposed beams and large sash windows with wooden shutters. The dual aspect sitting room is west facing and benefits from lovely evening sunshine. The bright and airy dual aspect west facing dining room has oak flooring and a lovely open fireplace. The comfortable drawing room has an attractive flagstone floor, exposed beams to ceiling and an open fireplace with beautiful alcoves either side giving wonderful symmetry, as well as exposed beams. The well-appointed dual aspect kitchen/breakfast room has a quarry tiled floor and a great selection of attractive painted farmhouse style units and cupboards incorporating a five door oil fired Aga, fridge freezer, integrated Bosch electric oven, Bosch integrated microwave and a freestanding dishwasher. There is a large granite topped central island, separate breakfast bar and a large breakfast/dining/seating area. To the rear of the property adjacent to the kitchen is a fully plumbed utility room. On this floor is also a useful cloakroom with quarry tiled floor and large window. An attractive oak staircase with spindled bannister leads up to the first floor and a large landing providing ample space for a study or seating area. The west facing master bedroom is of a very generous size and boasts stunning views as well as benefitting from a good sized en suite bathroom with wooden floor and bath with shower over. Bedroom two is a large double bedroom again facing west from the front of the property and benefits from a walk-in wardrobe as well as an en suite bathroom with wooden floor. Bedroom three is another double bedroom with a tall built-in wardrobe and lovely exposed beams. The accommodation to the first floor is completed with a large family bathroom with roll top bath, lots of built-in storage and a large window providing wonderful views to the rear. Finally, there is a very practical laundry room to the rear of the first floor. On the second floor there are three good sized double bedrooms and the potential for either a fourth bedroom or the creation of a guest suite or staff quarters with en suite bathroom and large dressing or sitting room area. There is the benefit of a back stairwell which could create a private access to this floor.
Outside: The house is approached via a private gated entrance and a gravelled driveway to the front of the house. There is ample parking for cars and a side driveway continues up to a double open garage providing further plentiful parking. To the side of the property is a beautiful oast house, currently used as an indoor swimming pool, gym, entertaining area and mezzanine flexible space but which has planning permission to be turned into additional living accommodation to the main house itself (see Agent's Note). The oast house benefits from an entertaining area next door to the swimming pool which showcases a beautiful inglenook fireplace. The oast house is absolutely stunning and offers great versatility to any future purchaser. The basement is currently used as a workshop/tool shed as well as a station for the heating and filtration system for the swimming pool. To the front of the house there are sweeping lawns leading down to the country lane and the land then envelops the house beyond a stone walled haha and paddock which have a number of beautiful established trees including a large cedar and weeping ash. Furthermore, there is an orchard area with fruit trees and the lawns continue around to the rear of the house where there is a beautiful courtyard, small lawned area with herbaceous borders and pond as well as an amazing old walnut tree. Stunning views are afforded from much of the house and gardens over the beautiful Herefordshire countryside and on clear evenings beautiful sunsets can be seen. Further outbuildings to the rear of the house include a tool shed, potting shed, wood shed and kennel. In all the grounds and gardens amount to around 2.73 acres.
Overall, Frome Manor is a splendid, eye-catching period property enjoying wonderful views of the Herefordshire countryside and with further potential to create additional accommodation would make a wonderful family home.
Agents Note: Planning permission was granted in 2004 for conversion of the oast house to living accommodation. The Agent understands that work on this conversion has begun and therefore the planning permission is still current, however prospective purchasers are encouraged to make their own enquiries.
