Sold subject to contract

2 The Market Place Nunney2 The Market Place is a very happy house with tons of character. The front of the house is clad in beautiful Doulting stone and climbing roses.

A small entrance hall leads to the living room, which has an open fireplace, exposed beams and lots of period features. It was probably a shop at one point. A spiral staircase in the corner leads to the first floor.

Beyond the living room is another small hall, leading into the spacious kitchen / dining room. The kitchen has lots of work surface space and storage cupboards. The dining area has plenty of space for entertaining larger dinner parties (the previous owner had up to 120 people round for gin and cupcakes at one point, although that was pushing it).

2 The Market Place NunneyThe dining room has a door into the garden. A stairwell leads to a raised patio area to overlooks the long rectangular lawn and flowerbeds with mature shrubs, trees, plants and flowers. The garden runs along the length of several other properties, but is sufficiently private. There’s a small shed at the end of the garden for storing gardening tools.

An open staircase leads from the dining area to the first floor. The landing area leads to a double bedroom with radiator. A separate bathroom has a bath with handheld shower, sink and toilet.

At the centre of the first floor is a room that could be used as a study, with space for several desks or a desk and seating area. Another option is to market this space as a private living room to accompany one or both of the bedrooms at the front of the property.

The top floor is surprisingly spacious, with a landing, huge attic and bedroom with en-suite bathroom. The bedroom benefits from roof lights and has exposed beams.

2 The Market Place Nunney2 The Market Place overlooks the Market Place and the moated 14th century Nunney Castle. The SPAR village shop, excellent country inn and Castle Kitchen café are within 150 yards.

Nunney has bus service (not available on Sundays and Bank Holidays) and good access to main routes to London, Bath and Bristol.

Nunney has a vibrant community life, school, church, village hall and amateur dramatics group. On-street parking is available at the front of the property, which has gravel beds about 2 feet wide.

Location

The stunning village of Nunney, complete with Castle, is located near Frome, the fourth largest town in Somerset and a wonderful centre from which to visit the surrounding area. Architecturally well preserved, there are more listed buildings in Frome than in any other Somerset town.

In recent years the town has developed a reputation as a focus for Arts and Crafts and there are a number of galleries and contemporary craft centres. There is a wide variety of places to eat and drink in the town as well
as a theatre and local shopping facilities.

Access to the M4, Junctions 18 (Tormarton) or 17 (Chippenham) is afforded to the North and nearby Trowbridge has rail links Bath and Bristol. Frome Railway Station is ¼ of a mile away and runs a daily return to London Paddington and Bath Spa Station offers very regular high speed links to London Paddington (90 minutes approximately), the West Country and Bristol Temple Meads.

The neighbouring World Heritage City of Bath (some 16 miles distant) is renowned for its historic, Georgian and Victorian architecture and has a wide range of cultural and leisure amenities including shops, bars, restaurants and the Theatre Royal as well as many sporting facilities and clubs.

2 The Market Place is on the market with a guide price of £375,000. Full details are available on Rightmove.
