DESCRIPTION A very appealing and well-proportioned 1950's detached bungalow requiring modernisation, set in a generous plot of approximately quarter of an acre. Built by the current owners over 60 years ago, Brynhyfryd, (meaning 'pleasant hill') is an intriguing double-fronted property surrounded by its own well-established gardens. Inside, the accommodation is in need of updating, however offers good size living space with enormous potential. There is also scope to extend into the roof or to the side, subject to planning permission.

At the front of the property there are two rooms of a similar size, both with double glazed bay windows. One is the largest bedroom with fitted wardrobes and units, the other is the main reception room with fireplace and back boiler for the LPG central heating. The second bedroom is also a double with built in wardrobes and double glazed window to the side. Also located off the hallway is a shower room and a separate reception room, which could be used as a dining room or additional sitting room. Sliding doors then lead through to a double glazed east-facing conservatory. At the rear of the property there is a kitchen, which incorporates a range of wooden fronted floor and wall units, pantry and useful store cupboard. The utility room is also a good size and located off the kitchen with access out to the garden.  

OUTSIDE The property is accessed directly from the A371 onto a private driveway which provides off road parking for one to two vehicles and leads to a detached single garage. A gate then leads through to the surrounding gardens, which are well-stocked, predominantly laid to lawn with a range of mature trees, shrubs and planted borders. The property enjoys plenty of sunshine throughout the day and a good deal of privacy. The garden also includes a good size lockable shed and greenhouse.  

LOCATION The village of Prestleigh lies a couple of miles south of the historic market town of Shepton Mallet and has a local pub, The Prestleigh Inn, which is located next door to the property. The village is conveniently located, accessible from the A371, A37 and A361 and is under five miles from Castle Cary train station, which offers direct rail links to London Paddington. Shepton Mallet is situated five miles east of Wells, England's smallest city. Both the City of Bristol and the picturesque City of Bath, a World Heritage Site, are just 18 miles away and easily accessible. Shepton Mallet itself offers a range of local amenities and shopping facilities including a large supermarket, leisure centre, lido with fitness centre, a choice of pubs and restaurants, dentists and doctors, a Grade I Listed church and both primary and secondary state schools. There are also many highly-regarded independent schools (Prep & Senior) within easy reach, such as All Hallows Prep School, Downside School, Wells Cathedral School and Millfield School.
