An impressive Grade II Listed house with extensive accommodation and beautiful landscaped gardens

Keyford House is a handsome Grade II Listed property, set in a sought-after position in a small hamlet on the edge of the market town of Frome. Dating from the 1830s, the house is built from attractive Bath stone in the Gothic revival style and offers up to 10 bedrooms and more than 7,500 square feet of elegant accommodation. Traditional features include high ceilings to all levels, wooden flooring, original fireplaces and triple sash windows.

There are five impressive reception rooms on the ground floor, including the welcoming reception hall with its sweeping wooden staircase leading to a galleried first-floor landing. Both the generous drawing room and the comfortable sitting room are splendid rooms in which to relax or entertain, with their elegant ceiling cornicing and large windows welcoming plenty of natural light. There is also a formal dining room and an orangery overlooking the southeast-facing rear gardens. The kitchen offers plenty of storage space, along with a central island, an Aga and space for a breakfast table.

There are five comfortable double bedrooms on the first floor, including the generous principal bedroom with its dressing room and en suite bathroom. The second floor has a further four bedrooms and an office, which could be used as a further bedroom if required. There are also family bathrooms on both the first and second floors.

The house is set in 2.81 acres of grounds, which include beautifully landscaped gardens. Outbuildings include a double garage with lapsed planning permission for conversion into a one-bedroom cottage, while there is also a carport and storage sheds. The property is approached via a gravel driveway, which provides plenty of parking and turning space at the front of the house. The delightful ornamental gardens include immaculate lawns, a parterre garden with box hedging and a central pergola, a walled vegetable garden and an array of mature specimen trees, established shrubs and hedgerows.


The property sits in a convenient location on the edge of the town of Frome, yet within easy reach of beautiful rolling countryside, including the nearby Mendip Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Historic Frome is a bustling market town with plenty of character and a wealth of amenities, including a fine selection of shops and supermarkets, and a choice of restaurants and cafés. Frome also has a choice of schools, including two secondary schools, the independent Springmead Preparatory School and the outstanding-rated primary Beckington Church of England School. Further amenities and schooling is available in nearby Warminster, while Bath and Bristol are also both within easy reach.
