This impressive Grade I listed Elizabethan manor house stands proudly amidst its own private, landscaped gardens, and is set within a Local Preservation Area. Erected in 1607 it has become the last remaining intact manor in Frome and hides behind tall stone walls with entry via automatic gates down a gravel driveway. It is situated on the south side of the ancient market town of Frome in a small valley of one of the most picturesque and historic areas. Described as one of the finest examples of a 16th-century stone built manor, it boasts virtually all original characteristics: stone gabled roofs, mullioned and leaded light windows, historic fireplaces, decorative plaster ceiling mouldings, oak stripped floors and panelling, some dating back to the 15th century, and huge oak beams removed from even older sailing ships. Accommodation is arranged over three floors with eight bedrooms, four reception rooms and one kitchen. Stonnwall Manor exudes an atmosphere of great charm. A recent sympathetic refit features the latest technology such as digital keyless entry, communal rooms automatically light up on entry, stained glass windows are beautifully back-lit at night controlled from proximity sensors. Take a pleasant stroll around the garden to enjoy the stone ornaments and plants, the fish pond and the rockery. A visit to the manor’s own underground bomb shelter is a must - themed as a 1940s living room. Ideally set in Frome, which boasts the most listed buildings in Somerset, there are many unspoilt villages nearby like Stonehenge. Also within easy reach are Wells Cathedral, Glastonbury, Bath and Stourhead Gardens.
