Full description

A handsome double fronted period home with four bedrooms and stunning open plan kitchen/dining/sitting room and attractive gardens in the vibrant village of Box, six miles from the heart of Georgian Bath.
The vendor says: “It was the garden and the kitchen which first drew us to the house eight years ago. We walked up a little lane and came across a double gate which opened out on to a lovely big garden leading down to the back of the house. It’s about one third of an acre and faces west so is very sunny in the afternoon. From the top of the garden there are stunning views across the valley to Thorn Wood. The mature trees in the woodland next to the house make this a very private garden. We love to eat outside in the summer and the patio area is perfect for this and has plenty of room for a barbecue.”
“The kitchen, which is our favourite room in the house is an eight year old extension right across the back of the original house, which was built in 1893. It is open plan and light and is big enough for a table for twelve people, as well as a sofa. The floor is tiled in cream stone, there are cream units with black granite tops, an island with stainless steel cooker hood above, two AEG Electrolux ovens and two microwave ovens and a water softener. There are double doors which open out on to the garden. We also have a utility room with a back door which opens out on to the garden. There is a downstairs cloakroom, sitting room with a woodburning stove and a snug. Upstairs there are four bedrooms with views across the valley and a lovely spacious bathroom with bath and separate shower.”
“Outside there is a charming French porch over the door in Bath stone with the date when the house was built, 1893, carved in it. There is parking for three cars to the side of the house on a large driveway.”
“Box is a lovely friendly community, catering for all ages, from toddlers to the elderly. There is an excellent primary school, attended by all three of our daughters, a doctor’s surgery, chemist, local shop, post office, butchers and the Northey Arms and Queen’s Head as well as a very popular Indian restaurant. Bowls, cricket, football and tennis are available at the sports pavilion and there are many stunning countryside walks from the house. The bus stop for Bath is right outside our door, which is ideal for our children, and it is only 90 minutes from Bath station to London Paddington.”
“We’ve really loved this house in this superb location. We have planning permission to put a two storey extension at the side and make the cloakroom a shower with a bedroom above, should the new owner wish to do this work.”
