Dating back several hundred years, this stone property has since been extended and updated. Occupying an elevated position on the southern slopes of the Box valley the views are absolutely superb and a key feature of this rural country retreat. Another major benefit that will appeal to the ever changing market is a spacious and highly versatile detached home office/studio. The property provides an open plan, double volume reception room with inglenook and wood burner. This is divided by two steps to the lower area where a fully fitted kitchen is separated from the dining area by peninsula cabinets and granite worktops. This room has patio doors leading out to a conservatory which opens to the deck. The first floor is accessed via an open spiral staircase and comprises a principal bedroom with en-suite shower room and a guest bedroom which is served by a full bathroom.
The hamlet of Kingsdown is located on the southern slopes of the valley within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty between the villages of Bathford and Box. Both have extremely popular infant schools, churches, recreational grounds and public houses, and further local amenities include a small supermarket and village store in Box with a post office/store in Bathford. Five miles to the west is the Georgian city of Bath itself providing year round entertainment and events of cultural interest. Mainline railway station at Chippenham links to London Paddington with a journey time of 75 minutes. Bristol International airport is less than a 25 mile drive away. There is also a regular bus service from The Swan public house into Bath.
The rear gardens are delightfully stocked and benefit from elevated views across the By Brook valley. A raised deck with fitted seating descends via steps down to a terrace and beautifully planted beds and footpaths to the rear. To the front a flight of stone steps lead down to the front door with a profusion of shrub beds. On the opposite side of the lane is a detached studio which makes a superb home office or potential annex. With adjacent gravelled garden there is also parking for several cars.
