For sale, The Old Vicarage offers spacious family living space, with 7 bedrooms, 7 receptions rooms, beautiful gardens and plentiful parking, in a central position within the desirable market town of Frome. In all approximately 0.75 of an acre.

One of the most significant houses in Frome, The Old Vicarage dates back to 1774 and is located in the heart of the charming and vibrant town of Frome. Sitting in the midst of a walled garden, this beautiful Georgian vicarage maintains many of its original features, including the stone entrance hall, original fireplaces, working shutters and panelling as well as exquisite stained-glass windows in the Chapel.

Far from old-fashioned though, this beautiful home has been extensively improved and modernised and now includes a fabulous 32 foot Minotti kitchen with top of the range Gaggenau appliances and stunning contemporary bathrooms.

Set over four floors, The Old Vicarage provides plenty of space for family, entertaining and working. As well as an elegant drawing room, a Chapel and a dining room that sits at least 14, there are seven double bedrooms divided between the top two floors and a basement dedicated to workspaces, including a large and lovely flagstone floored art studio.

Just under an acre of tree-lined walled garden surrounds The Old Vicarage. To the front, through the automatic gates, there is a gravelled driveway with plenty of parking space. Wisteria is trained along the front facade of the house. The deep bed of box ball plantings were created by renowned topiary expert Jake Hobson. To the rear, there are lawns, flower beds, a rose arch, fruit trees and a summerhouse. Leading out from the kitchen is a terrace with an long pond and an dining gazebo.

According to The Sunday Times, Frome is the best place to live in the South-West as well as one of the coolest places to live in the UK. With its vintage shops and independent retailers, theatres, summer festival, cool cafes and cobbled streets, Frome is a fun place to live. The Frome Independent Market, held on the first Sunday of every month is a celebration of all things artisan and attracts thousands of visitors.

Babington House, the private members' club, with its swimming pools, tennis courts, gym, bars and restaurant is only a short drive away and is an idyllic hub for relaxing and socialising.

Bath, Frome, Westbury, Warminster and Castle Cary stations provide rail services to London Paddington and London Waterloo. The A303 (M3) links to London and the wider motorway network and the A36,M4 and M5 are all within easy reach. There is a wide range of national and international flights from Bristol Airport.

As for schools, there is an excellent choice!
