A well presented Cotswold stone cottage situated in the heart of sought after Box with three bedrooms, a lovely sitting/dining room, some great character features and a pretty rear garden
A well presented semi 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 under a pitched roof, with well finished accommodation arranged over three floors. A porch, 15’ sitting room with wood burning stove and kitchen are on the ground floor, with a landing, bathroom and two bedrooms above, on the first floor. There is another large bedroom, measuring 16’x 15’ at the top of the house. Character features are found throughout the property and every window enjoy a pleasant outlook.
The property benefits from a pretty rear garden. This can be accessed from a glazed door in the sitting room or via a right of way over the area to the side of the cottage. Steps lead up to this sunny space, with a level lawn and a paved spot with room for a table and chairs. There is a stone edged border behind the lawn, and the garden is enclosed with newly erected fencing. There is a gate in the rear fence for the neighbour to access the rear of their property for maintenance but we are informed that this is only an informal arrangement between the two households and not a legal right of way.
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.
The current owners have built fitted wardrobes into the eaves in the second floor bedroom since these photographs were taken. These will remain with the property for the benefit of the new owner.
