Brecon House dates from the mid Victorian period remaining in the same family until the mid-1950’s when the house was converted into a nursing home until it was sold in the 1990’s for conversion into six individual apartments. The building is local stone with a formal dressed stone front elevation in the Georgian style under a slate roof. This well-proportioned apartment has features including a telephone entry system, thorough soundproofing, smoke alarms, secondary and double glazing throughout, ventilation systems for kitchens and bathrooms, gas central heating, lift and built in satellite television points. The proportions of the apartment are excellent, with a plentiful supply of natural light and excellent ceiling heights.  The bedrooms and living accommodation are cleverly separated by the entrance hall, the sitting room having a centrepiece fireplace with electric fire inset. Accommodation flows from the sitting room into the kitchen, fitted with a range of units and integrated appliances to include Zanussi electric oven and 4 ring hob with extractor over, fridge/freezer and washing machine. The apartment offers two generous bedrooms both with fitted wardrobes, both served by a bathroom comprising panelled bath with thermostatically controlled shower and screen, pedestal sink unit and WC.

Brecon House lies to the centre of the historic Abbey town of Sherborne within level walking distance of many of the towns amenities which include the Abbey, a main line train station, three doctors surgeries, two supermarkets and a comprehensive range of shops, public houses and restaurants. Sporting, walking and riding opportunities abound within the area with golf clubs at both Sherborne and Yeovil while the region is well known for both its public and privately funded schooling.
