detached older style bungalow for improvement in a superb location just off the Common at sought after Hampton Green, Box, with two bedrooms, parking and garage and a lovely level rear garden
An individual detached bungalow situated in a superb position at popular Hampton Green, Box. This quiet position allows for easy access to the shops and amenities of both Minchinhampton and Nailsworth, with hundreds of acres of National Trust land found just along the road at Minchinhampton and Rodborough Commons. The property is built using traditional methods under a pitched roof, with accommodation arranged over one floor. This comprises an entrance hall, 16’ sitting room with fireplace, dining area, kitchen with pantry, shower room, separate WC and two double bedrooms. The property is in need of updating but offers prospective buyers to create a home to their own standards, and could of course potentially be extended, subject to relevant planning permission and consent.
The interior is complemented by parking, a garage and a lovely rear garden. The parking is to the front, with space for several vehicles, with the attached garage with up and over door to the right of the property. This is currently divided into two areas, the rear used as an additional room/study with power and light and access to the garden, the front part as a garden store. There is a lean to on the left of the house, with the garden behind. This lovely space is level, and has clearly been well tended, with a level lawn and well planted beds stocked with a variety of colourful plants. The garden borders fields at the rear, and the view here is quite something.
The property is located just of hundreds of acres of National Trust common land, just above Box village. 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.
