Beech House sits in the wonderful and historic part of the thriving market town of Shepton Mallett, tucked back in a private position, this stunning Georgian home offers an exciting opportunity to live in one of the towns 'hidden gems'. The house is believed to date back to 1791, having undergone extensive renovations in recent times, huge attention has been given to completing all the works with conservation and the original heritage of the building always at the forefront, the old and the new now seamlessly blend together. Entering through a traditional central hall, blessed with the original flooring and being in fantastic condition, there are two rooms, one laid as the formal reception, complete with fireplace and fitted stove, the second used as a snug TV room, both being of typical Georgian proportions and with large South facing sash windows.

The guest bedroom is serviced by a wonderful master bathroom with a large wet area shower and a roll-top bath.
