Georgian former rectory in Frome

Fountain House is a superb Grade II* listed Georgian property in a peaceful part of Frome. Renovated in 2010, the house retains period character and charm while offering everything a modern family needs including a brand new kitchen/breakfast room.

Internally accommodation is arranged over three floors, and the majority of rooms retain ceiling mouldings and original fireplaces. The double drawing room has a broad bay which includes two sash windows and a central French window to open lawn; all the principal windows downstairs have their original shutters.

Upstairs the master bedroom suite has floor-to-ceiling wardrobes and the guest bedroom suite on the second floor has a door to a roof terrace which overlooks the garden. There are a further five bedrooms upstairs, and the shower and bathrooms are new.
