Full description

Tenure: Freehold

An 18th century five bedroom detached house set in approximately 3.8 acres with landscaped gardens, an orchard, paddock land, a tennis court, a stable block and garaging. Box Cottage is situated in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The property was built around 1770 and was originally linked to the village church and known as Mog's Lace School. Over the years, the property has been extended to create 2,537 sq. ft. of accommodation with the reception rooms and majority of the bedrooms overlooking the formal landscaped gardens. These gardens surround Box Cottage, with a gravelled path leading from the stable block to the tennis court and the paddock. The property is in catchment for Great Kimble School - which has an Ofsted rating of Outstanding - and Princes Risborough secondary school. Princes Risborough is approximately 2.5 miles away and has a variety of shops, boutiques, coffee shops, restaurants, GP and dental surgeries, and a mainline railway station.

Stable Block 
The stable block consists of two stables and a tack room with windows providing natural light. Electric lighting is also connected. One of the stables is currently used as a gymnasium, but can easily be converted back to a stable.

Gardens 
Box Cottage is approached via electric timber gates, and a driveway with parking extends to the rear. Formal landscaped gardens surround the property on two sides. The gardens to the side are principally laid to lawn with herbaceous and flower borders, mature trees and shrubs. A paved terrace and seating areas lead round to the rear garden which is also laid to lawn flanked with herbaceous borders and mature shrubs. Beyond the rear garden, there is an orchard which contains a variety of fruit trees which include apple, plum and walnut. From the stables, a gravelled path leads around the formal gardens passing the tennis court which has a hard surface and is fully enclosed. The formal gardens measure approximately 1 acre in total and are surrounded by fencing and mature hedging and trees.

Paddock Land 
The gravelled path from the gardens leads to a gate which opens into a triangular field. There is a five bar gate to Church Lane, and a five bar gate and a kissing gate to the paddock. The paddock measures approximately 2.8 acres and is surrounded by fencing and mature hedging and trees. A further five bar gate and a kissing gate leads to a field beyond.
