After a century as a prominent solicitor’s office in the heart of Frome, Argyll House has now been transformed into a beautifully designed and eclectic family home. This Grade II property stands elevated above Bath Street and adjacent to the 12th Century St John the Baptist Church and Gentle Street.
The reception hall to the side of the house leads into the most wonderful kitchen with hand made units, beautifully laid oak parquet flooring which flows throughout the ground floor linking the rooms. The open plan dining area has two impressive arch windows with working shutters whist the tall ceiling and superb proportion of this open plan kitchen, living and dining area add to the impact of this major part of the house. In contrast the sitting room and adjacent play room or study is designed to be a little cosier with lower ceilings, a wood burning stove and a well designed wall hidden with storage behind; a door to the side courtyard is also a further pleasant feature to this charming room.
The history of the transformation has been uncovered and retained as a design statement on the first floor with bare plaster walls and wooden flooring. The master bedroom is a super size with the retained period detail including a tall decorated ceiling, central fireplace and a large square bay window fused along side contemporary Bisque radiators and a pebble free standing bath. The second floor houses a lovely bedroom with a dual aspect across the Georgian buildings of the street and the trees in the distance, as does the family bathrooms with a free standing bath and bespoke cabinetry. The top floor once again benefits from a large double bedroom and the most glorious family bathroom.
Back down in the reception hall an inner hall leads to a self-contained one bedroom wing if required or a third reception room with a central cast iron winding staircase to the fourth bedroom. This is a beautifully designed area with use as part of the family home or separated and rented out should you wish.
To the front of Argyll House is a drive providing a parking area and raised beds. Shallow steps lead up to a small lawned garden enclosed by hedging. Down below this is a pretty enclosed courtyard accessed from the sitting room. To the side is a lawn with paved slabs leading to the front door with stone raised flower beds.
