2 Upwey Cottages is a period three bedroom property, which has been completely renovated and extended over recent years to provide a spacious and welcoming home, located in the highly desirable village of Box, Wiltshire.
The current owner says: “We fell in love with the cottage as soon as we saw it and have been so happy living here. The open plan living space downstairs creates a sociable, relaxed environment which changes through the seasons. In the summer, the bi fold doors to the garden allow light to stream in and create a feeling of the outside inside. In winter, the beautiful Bath stone fireplace with a traditional stove makes the cottage feel cosy and warm. Upstairs, the bedrooms have stunning views across the valley and the large bathroom with separate shower and bath feels very luxurious.
Outside, the patio area is perfect for outdoor dining. The patio leads up to a large lawned garden which in turn leads to a decking area with the most beautiful views across the valley to Colerne. Behind the decking is a brand new 20 x 10 ft pressure treated timber workshop with electricity connected.
The location here has been perfect for us. Box has a thriving community and cornucopia of amenities including pubs, the very popular Bengal Bear restaurant, a lovely cafe, shop, post office, butchers, doctor’s surgery, pharmacy, hairdressers, village hall, sports pavilion, excellent primary school, pre-school and forest school. To the rear of the property there are steps, known locally as the ‘Stairway to Heaven’, which lead to the Quarryman’s Arms which is a very popular pub with great food, drinks and views. The Queen’s Head pub hosts regular live music sessions and the village puts on two festivals each year - Box Rocks and the Pig and Jig”.
The World Heritage Spa City of Bath is a mere 7 miles away and the historic market town of Corsham is less than 3 miles away with its supermarket, primary and secondary schools, restaurants, cafes and independent shops. There are commuter links to London, Bristol and beyond via the M4 motorway as well as regular rail services to London and elsewhere via Chippenham or Bath stations.
