Tucked away in the heart of the highly sought after village of Box is this superb 1970's one off design home. This home approximately offers a staggering 3013 sq ft (279.9 sq m) of internal area with flexible living and with optional self-contained ground floor accommodation which includes three bedrooms, bathroom, kitchen and access to the garage. Equally, Charnwood House has an abundance of potential and flexibility for family living along with attractive views over the village, and it is within walking distance to all of Box's fantastic amenities. In brief the accommodation is split level with the first floor having an entrance hall, kitchen, utility room, WC, split level sitting room/dining room with large picture window taking in the views, and master bedroom. The master benefits from built in storage, a recently decorated ensuite bathroom and sliding doors opening onto the balcony where there are further views over the village and surround countryside. An impressive central staircase with architectural brick column leads down to the study which has a bedroom leading off and patio doors leading to an additional balcony. From the study there is a smaller staircase leading to the lower level complete with gym area and built in shower cubicle and access to the garden. Returning to the central staircase, this continues down to the additional three bedrooms, bathroom, kitchen and the access to the double garage. This area also has its own access allowing it to be used as further accommodation, potentially for elderly relatives, older children or even as a holiday let. The property benefits from solar panels, which belong to the house and provide an income stream, and an air source heat pump which has been newly installed and provides hot water and heating of the radiators.
The property is located on The Ley with a driveway leading down to a parking area which also has access to the double garage and there are steps that lead up to the front door and sunny patio area. The beautiful rear garden has several sections of lawn and patio area with mature planting within stone built raised beds that create a number of sunny and private areas to enjoy the garden in the summer months. There is also a fruitful orchard on the west side of the property with the whole plot being approximately 0.33 of an acre.
