A wonderful example of a detached Cotswold stone cottage situated in the heart of sought after Box with four bedrooms, an 18’ kitchen/dining room, 18’ sitting room, a pretty garden and parking
A beautifully presented detached character property situated in a superb position in the heart of the sought after village of Box. This rural location enjoys a good village community, with the shops and amenities of nearby Nailsworth within easy reach and hundreds of acres of National Trust land found just up the road at Minchinhampton and Rodborough Commons. The property is built using traditional methods from Cotswold stone and has clearly been the subject of a comprehensive renovation programme in the recent past, with well finished accommodation arranged over three floors. An entrance area, 18’ kitchen/dining room, useful utility room, 18’ sitting room with Inglenook fireplace and wood burning stove, rear hall and cloakroom/WC are on the ground floor. A staircase leads up from the hall to the first floor, with a light landing, two bedrooms, a study/dressing room and a bathroom on this floor. A further double bedroom with en suite bathroom is at the top of the house, on the second floor. High quality fittings and materials have been used throughout the house, and these are highlighted by tasteful colour schemes. The ground floor benefits from underfloor heating, and every window enjoys a pleasant outlook.
The interior is complemented by parking and a well kept garden. These pretty courtyard gardens surround the property with a gate leading to the front door with well planted borders at the front and a covered area to the side with a useful stone built garden store. One can walk out of either the side or the rear of the house, with a paved area with wood store and pergola at the side of the house with steps that lead up to the rear garden. This secluded level area can also be accessed from that first floor rear access and is a lovely place to sit and relax, with raised borders, steps up to the top of a planted rockery area and further paved area at the far end with is currently used to store items. The property also benefits from parking, at the front of the house, to the right of the garden.
