LOCATION

Gentle Street is a historic 18th century location in the centre of Frome. Frome is voted one of best places to live in UK by Sunday Times 2021 & shortlisted best place in Somerset 2023.
Car parking in the town centre is in short supply & the community lead plans for redevelopment of Saxon Vale and the Silk Mill, a short walk past the impressive St Johns Church will only serve to strengthen the future appeal of the town and this historic location.
Bath and Bristol are within commuting distance, and the local railway station connects at Westbury for London, Paddington and Frome to Waterloo.

BUYER’S PREMIUM
Please be aware all purchasers are subject to a £1000 + VAT (£1,200 inc VAT) buyer's premium which is ALWAYS payable upon exchange of contracts whether the sale is concluded before, during or after the auction date.

GUIDE PRICE
An indication of the seller's current minimum acceptable price at auction. The guide price or range of guide prices is given to assist consumers in deciding whether to pursue a purchase. It is usual, but not always the case, that a provisional reserve range is agreed between the seller and the auctioneer at the start of marketing. As the reserve is not fixed at this stage and can be adjusted by the seller at any time up to the day of the auction in the light of interest shown during the marketing period, a guide price is issued. This guide price can be shown in the form of a minimum and maximum price range within which an acceptable sale price (reserve) would fall, or as a single price figure within 10% of which the minimum acceptable price (reserve) would fall. A guide price is different to a reserve price (see separate definition). Both the guide price and the reserve price can be subject to change up to and including the day of the auction.

RESERVE PRICE
The seller’s minimum acceptable price at auction and the figure below which the auctioneer cannot sell. The reserve price is not disclosed and remains confidential between the seller and the auctioneer. Both the guide price and the reserve price can be subject to change up to and including the day of the auction.
