Box Inn Cottage offers quintessential Cotswold charm. This gem of a home has clearly been renovated with love, attention to detail and exceptional creative flair. A quaint facade of honey-coloured stone creates an instantly welcoming vibe and arched mullion windows frame the cozy interior within. A cobbled path leads to the pretty front door with stained glass hare inset, setting the tone for the abundance of character that runs throughout the home.
Opening to an open-plan kitchen and living space, this room is clearly the heart of the home. Limestone flooring with underfloor heating, fitted shaker-style kitchen units, a gas fired Aga and wood burning stove, create a wonderfully welcoming living space. Three mullion windows allow ample natural light to fill the room and neatly frame the pretty view of the garden. A cloakroom with shower/wet room, plus a laundry area, are also located at this level.
Aged oak stairs lead to the first floor with useful coat hanging space along the stairwell. A delightful double bedroom with oak boarded floor, ample built-in storage, aged beams and latch doors, create a calming retreat from the bustle of modern day living. A deep window seat offers the perfect spot to relax with a book or simply soak up the panorama beyond and a statement copper roll top bath offers a splash of glamour. A separate WC leads off the bedroom.
The south facing garden is located to the front of the cottage and offers a magical space for alfresco dining and summer entertaining. The garden comprises a patio area, lawn, kitchen garden, well-stocked borders and topiary hedging, enveloped by handsome dry stone walls. A greenhouse, log store and shed, provide useful storage.
From our Minchinhampton office head along West End towards Minchinhampton Common leading into Windmill Road and out to the common. Turn left at the T junction, in the direction of Nailsworth. Take the next left into Box village and then turn right towards the village green. Park alongside the Green and you will see the cottage ahead of you and slightly to the left; walk up the lane and you will find the entrance to the cottage on the right hand side, just past the cattle grid.
The location of Box Inn Cottage is one of its key attributes. Tucked away along a quiet lane in the heart of this sought after village, the property offers the ultimate quintessential Cotswold retreat. Well-known as one of the prettiest and most sought after villages in the locality, Box has a wonderful and welcoming community. Regular village events include 'Box Bar,' run fortnightly from the village hall, numerous active clubs including a gardening club and enormously popular open garden events. Minchinhampton Common is within minutes from the cottage, offering over 650 acres of National Trust land and also playing host to a popular golf course.
The market towns of Minchinhampton and Nailsworth are both within easy reach and offer a good choice of cafes, independent retailers, pubs and restaurants. Stroud and Cirencester are also conveniently close, both with major Waitrose supermarkets and Stroud also has an award winning Saturday Farmers market. There are lovely walks in the vicinity, including Box woods, owned and cared for by the local community.
One of the key draws to the area is the excellent choice of schools in both the private and public sector, with popular schools in nearby Nailsworth, Stroud and Minchinhampton.
Box is less than two hours from London by car or cira 90 minutes from nearby Stroud Station, while Bristol is within commuting distance and the M5 motorway is easily accessible (Junction 13).
