About the area
Glastonbury is internationally known as a beautiful historic and very friendly town. Its past and its present are linked with its dominant landmark, the Tor. It's been a religious centre throughout history and back into the times of legends. There was a Celtic monastery here by 500 AD which, in the next 1000 years evolved into one of England's wealthiest and most influential abbeys. The town grew up alongside the Abbey and today is a small thriving town and a major tourist venue, welcoming thousands of visitors each year. Medieval Glastonbury - designated a conservation area - clusters around the evocative ruins of the Abbey. Just 5 miles from Glastonbury is Wells, the smallest city in England (population 11,000). Its centre is the market place (local markets twice a week) surrounded by many medieval buildings including the Cathedral and moated Bishops Palace.
There are excellent local schools and the private sector includes Millfield, Wells Cathedral School, Downside, All Hallows and the Bruton schools. About 12 miles south east is Castle Cary station with a main rail line to London.
Leg of Mutton Road is located close to the High Street and within a short walk to the Chalice Well and Tor. The town centre has excellent facilities including doctors’ surgeries, restaurants and shops.
Number 70 is located at the bottom of Leg of Mutton Road, the High Street is a very short walk with a bus stop just a few steps from the property.
The property is believed to have been built in the 1960’s and has a rendered finish with aluminium double glazed windows and gas central heating.

The property is accessed under a porch that gives shelter to the wooden front door, this opens into the spacious hall with a cloaks cupboard giving coat hanging and shoe storage. On the left of the hall is the spacious sitting room with dual aspect and a large ‘picture’ window overlooking the front garden. An open fire with an understated oak mantle over gives a warming focal point during the colder evenings.
The kitchen/dining/living room is a lovely space with dual aspect. The kitchen has been fitted with plenty of wall and floor cupboards, a double electric oven and gas hob with an extractor fan over. There is space for a fridge/freezer, washing machine and tumble dryer and plenty of space for a dining table and chairs. Dual aspect doors lead out into the garden.

The garden is planted with an array of scented plants – jasmine, wisteria, different varieties of choisya and roses to name a few. The planting throughout is mature with a combination of trees, shrubs and herbaceous plants that give the property a private feel. There are paved areas for wandering around the garden and for stopping to sit and a larger paved area for al fresco dining. A timber framed octagonal greenhouse is tucked at the rear of the garden. The pathways lead around the bungalow to pedestrian gates at either side that give access to the front.
The front garden is bordered from the road by neat mature hedging. It has two lawned areas with raised borders, again well planted with an array of plants with a lovely mature olive tree.
