The property, built in the 1980’s has an interesting layout created by a split level entrance which provides increased height and light and now offers a prospective buyer an ideal opportunity to refurbish and upgrade the house to meet their own standards. Arranged over two principal floors the property briefly comprises: Reception Hall, Cloakroom and Inner Hall/Library space which provides access to a dual aspect Sitting Room with open fire and doors leading to the terrace, a Dining Room also with doors to the terrace and a spacious Kitchen/Breakfast Room, all benefiting from the superb views. On the ground floor there is also a Utility/Boot Room and a downstairs Shower Room, accessed from an internal Hallway which provides access to the stairwell which leads up to Bedroom 5 found above the garage. On the principal first floor there is a family Bathroom, a 17′ dual aspect master Bedroom with en suite Bathroom and three further good size Bedrooms.

Approached via a five bar gate the drive sweeps down to the property where you will find plenty of parking, turning space and a DOUBLE GARAGE which has an electric door, power and light and a personal door leading into the property. The gardens which surround the property on all sides are a particular feature with a paved sun terrace from which to enjoy the views across the adjoining countryside and gently sloping lawns complemented by a host of mature planting, trees and shrubs to include a magnificent wisteria, horse chestnut and weeping willow plus some lovely natural meadow areas.

The village of Box lies on the sheltered south facing escarpment and close to 600 acres of common land belonging to the National Trust. The town of 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 and a good selection of cafes and restaurants. Beaudesert school is within walking distance and there are well regarded junior schools at both Amberley and Minchinhampton. There is a main line railway station at Stroud which is some four miles distant and provides a direct service to London Paddington together with a more comprehensive range of shopping, educational and recreational facilities.
