Property Summary

This is a well-presented, neat and tidy ground-floor apartment within a popular retirement development on the edge of Victoria Park in Frome, offering spacious accommodation, a private patio with direct access to pretty communal gardens, residents parking, overnight guest accommodation suite and a 24-hour Alarm Service via pull cords in every room - all within relatively easy reach of the town centre.

Interior

The main door opens onto a reception hall with a large storage cupboard to the right, a door to the left leading to the bathroom, another ahead to the bedroom and a final one to the spacious living room/diner diagonally to the right.

The main carpeted living space is decorated in neutral colours and includes a feature fireplace with a wood mantle and white surround framing an electric fire with a brass imitation grate. Ample natural light is allowed by the windows and glass-panelled door overlooking the patio while warmth is provided by a wall-mounted electric storage heater.

Double glass-panelled doors lead through to the kitchen, equipped with plenty of wall and base units above and below white laminate worktops and incorporating an eye-level electric oven and grill, four-ring electric hob beneath an extractor, and a stainless-steel sink and drainer beneath a window overlooking the gardens. Splashback tiles with floral highlights have also been fitted above the cooking and preparation spaces.
The spacious double bedroom includes an integral wardrobe with sliding mirrored doors, carpets and an awning window with views over the gardens. Warmth is provided by a wall-mounted electric storage heater.
The bathroom is equipped with a fully-tiled shower cubicle with a handrail for safety, a console hand basin within a vanity unit and a dual-flush WC.

Exterior

The property is part of a managed retirement development offering independent living surrounded by a smart, block-paved residents’ parking area, flower beds and gardens planted with shrubs and trees. The covered entrance is controlled by a secure video entry system connected to the residents’ TVs. However, some ground-floor apartments – including Flat 5 - also include their own external doors allowing direct access to private flagstone patios, shady lawns and communal grounds.

Facilities inside Longleat Court include a resident manager’s office, a 24-hour emergency alarm service, a common lounge area, a lift, residents' lounge, a laundry room and guest accommodation.

Location

Longleat Court is at the end of Park Road – a cul-de-sac leading to the playing fields and bowling club in the town’s Victoria Park a little south of the town centre.

Nearby amenities include St Catharine’s Church and The Wesley Methodist Church as well as The Refectory Coffee Shop off Butts Hill.

The town centre is within 500m of the apartment, offering a large branch of Marks and Spencer, a smaller Lidl supermarket, a good selection of independent shops and businesses, high street banks, restaurants, coffee shops, cafes and pubs. A weekly bus service is available between Longleat Court and the local supermarket.
Larger Asda and Sainsbury’s superstores can also be found on the edge of town while Frome boasts its own Community Hospital, including an A&E department, audiology unit, cancer care centre, urology unit, a falls and home treatment team, a neurology department and an older person’s community mental health team.

Trains from Frome Station run regular and direct services to Gloucester, Westbury, Bristol Temple Meads, Weymouth, Castle Cary and Salisbury. Buses from Christchurch Street West at the foot of Park Road also offer connections to the town centre, Midsomer Norton and to Bath.
