A superb opportunity to acquire a building plot with planning permission (S.12/0094/FUL) to build a substantial detached house in a lovely location within the sought after village of Box
A unique opportunity to purchase a building plot in a superb elevated position in the sought after village of Box. This lovely location enjoys a good village community and a wonderful outlook, 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 plot currently has planning permission (S.12/0094/FUL) to build a large detached three storey property. This substantial unit certainly sets the precedent for building a prime house on the site, and a prospective buyer may look to build out as per this design or reapply for a different layout.
The eventual property will benefit from parking, gardens and that first class outlook. The current design includes an integral double garage at street level, and there is a parking space deeded to the land a couple of meters back along the lane – a very useful spot for a skip, or drop off point for materials whilst building. The property will then benefit from gardens, at the front of the house, and this space will take in the sun and the fantastic outlook over fields below.
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 Park 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.
