Available to the open market for the first time since 1974 is this charming & characterful detached house which enjoys a private & much desired setting within the village of Box. The property is believed to date back to the 1600s with a later extension to the property in the Victorian era. The result is a most attractive home with a wealth of original & period features including wood floors, exposed timber beams and several stone fireplaces one of which is inset with a recently installed wood burning stove. There is also what is believed to be a built in Jacobean spice/herb cupboard. Leading from the cellar, with its original stone steps, there is a secondary staircase which leads up to the attic. These character fixtures are beautiful complimented by a modern decor scheme which includes a farmhouse style kitchen complete with a Rayburn and Belfast sink, plus sleek bath & shower rooms with contemporary designs. The accommodation is arranged over 4 floors, including a dry cellar which is currently used as a utility/laundry room. The ground floor is accessed via a side porch onto an impressive flagstone reception hall which leads to a central hallway & 2 sitting rooms, kitchen & adjoining conservatory. On the first floor there are 3 excellent bedrooms with the principal bedroom having a dressing room & an en-suite bathroom. The other 2 bedrooms plus a further 2 attic bedrooms, one of which is used as office/gym, share a family bathroom with a walk-in shower.
