An attractive semi detached cottage situated in a good position in the heart of popular Box. This sought after location allows for easy access to both Minchinhampton and Nailsworth, with Beaudesert Park School and hundreds of acres of National Trust common land within walking distance. The property was originally built from Cotswold stone and has been extended in the past. The property is in need of some improvement but offers character accommodation arranged over three floors. An entrance hall, kitchen/breakfast room, conservatory and sitting room with open fireplace are on the ground floor. A landing, two bedrooms and a bathroom are above, on the first floor, with two further bedrooms at the top of the house. The windows at the front of the property enjoy a good outlook over the garden and, from the first and second floors, over the valley to surrounding countryside.
The interior is complemented by parking and enclosed gardens. The parking is to the side of the house, with a gate leading into the garden. This is on the sunny, southerly side of the house and is enclosed and private. There is a paved sitting area by the conservatory, with a level shaped lawn beyond, borders with established shrubs and mature trees. A shed and a summerhouse (that is in need of an overhaul) are at the end of the garden.
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.
