Property description

Tenure: Freehold


Tunnel Inn is a pretty, detached family house in need of some renovation. The property is partially modernised to one side of the building, with need of reconfiguration in the larger portion of the house. There are currently three bedrooms, however there is room to extend and make into a four-to-five-bedroom house.

In former years it was a public house. Local Box historical references refer to the Tunnel Inn as a public house during the construction of the Box Railway Tunnel. The property is on the market for the first time in over 40 years and has no onward chain.

There is a large, gated side access to off street parking for several cars. The land to the end of the garden has water and drainage and previously has had static trailer accommodation on-site, separately council taxed, that could also, subject to planning, be used as a building plot.

The gardens are partially walled and are well planted mature trees and hedges to the outer boundaries. Much of the garden is lawned and gives plenty of open space to enjoy. There are two stone-built outbuildings close to the house that could also offer an opportunity to make
a handy garden store, garden office or extend to make a lovely summer house.
