A beautifully presented extended, attached Cotswold stone cottage in a superb rural location on the edge of sought after Box with spacious, character accommodation, landscaped gardens & a garage
A beautifully presented character property in a lovely rural position on the outskirts of popular Box. This quiet location is private but still very much part of the local community, with the shops and amenities of both Minchinhampton and Nailsworth within easy reach and community owned woodland on the doorstep. The property was originally built using traditional methods from Cotswold stone and has been carefully extended and improved, with accommodation arranged over three floors.
A 21′ kitchen/dining room with Aga, 14′ sitting room with wood burning stove, garden room and cloakroom/W.c are on the ground floor. Two double bedrooms and a bathroom with separate shower room are above, on the first floor, with two further double bedrooms, one with en suite W.c, at the top of the house on the second floor. High quality fittings and materials have been used throughout the property, with solid Elm floors throughout the ground floor, and every room is tastefully decorated.
The property benefits from gardens to the front and rear. The front garden is level, with a sunny paved sitting spot by the house and a gravelled area that stretches away from the house. The rear garden is beautifully planned and planted, with a pretty pathway leading on to a good sized landscaped garden with lawns, a private sitting area, established borders and beds stocked with a variety of shrubs and mature trees. The garage is found at the far end of the front garden and measures 15’5” x 9’5” with a carport attached.
Jasmine Cottage is accessed via a quintessential country lane that leads between Pensile Road and the village of Box, a sought after Cotswold village. This tranquil location affords the property access to both the centre of Nailsworth and the hundreds of acres of land vested in the National Trust at Minchinhampton Common. Nailsworth benefits from a large and comprehensive selection of speciality shops including Williams Food Hall, the famous Hobbs House Bakery, various clothing and gift shops, several cafes and a good selection of very well regarded restaurants. In addition there are three supermarkets, a public library, doctor’s surgery and free parking. Nailsworth is also home to Forest Green Rovers Football Club where there is a modern leisure/fitness centre and both state and private schooling within the area. Bus services connect with Stroud, some 4 miles away, where there is a more comprehensive selection of shopping, educational and leisure facilities. Junctions of the M4 and M5 motorways are within easy reach and railway stations at Stroud (4 miles) and Kemble (10 miles) provide main line services to Gloucester, Swindon and London Paddington.
