Crestwood is a stunning contemporary home with excellent eco credentials, tucked away at the end of a quiet cul de sac in the popular Wiltshire village of Box. It offers generous accommodation set within a beautiful terraced, landscaped garden. The architecture lends a light and open ethos that fills the whole house, making it perfect for entertaining. The property has just been completed and is ready for any new owner to add their own personality and style. Floor to ceiling high solar gain windows dominate the façade, with remote operated sun blinds and underfloor heating throughout. The main living space and the bedrooms lead on to private, Canadian cedar clad balconies and sedum roofs, all enjoying the breath-taking views. The property is configured to give you three main open plan living areas, one on each floor, linked by white Greek marble stairs and stainless steel balustrades and down-lit by a beautiful oval skylight. The accommodation is flexible so one could keep the ground floor as a separate self-contained apartment or as a games room as it was originally intended. This can be achieved whilst also keeping it integrated into the whole, making it perfect for teenage children or older relatives to have their own space and independence. Throughout the property the owners have finished the property with top of the range fittings including Hans Grohe, Corian Dupont worktop, Miele extraction, Siemens cooking, walk in wardrobes, en suite bathrooms, his-and-her sinks and programmable lights. The double garage is integrated into the main house and has a WC, work bench and utility area, built in storage cupboards and remote operated up and over doors, perfect for those wishing to tinker with a classic car or just as a workshop. The garaging is big enough to convert to extra living accommodation should one require. A covered car port sits snugly into the side of the property with exterior lighting. Remote gates sit at the bottom of the block paved driveway. The surrounding gardens are beautifully landscaped rising up to large lawn terraces to the side and to the rear of the house. The area to the rear of the property acts as a fantastic kitchen garden, and there are seating areas by the pond and also plenty of space to grow vegetables and fruit. A working well gains access to a freshwater spring that used to feed the local Box Steam Brewery, which now flows into the pond at the bottom of the lawn. There is an outside insulated wine cellar, which could also be used as a gardener’s store.
Upper Ley is centrally situated in the pretty village community of Box equidistant of Bath and Chippenham. The property borders an extensive wooded area of the Hazelbury Manor and there are many excellent walks in the area making it perfect dog walking territory. Local amenities are only a short 5 minute walk away in Box which include The Quarryman’s Arms pub, village shop and cafe. Wadswick Country Stores is close by for all your country pursuit needs as well as Allington Farm Shop for excellent local produce. The gateway to the Cotswolds AONB is a short drive away as you head north to Marshfield and Castle Combe. The City of Bath is only 7 miles away with its wealth of restaurants, shops and cultural attractions including the Roman Baths, Museum, The Royal Crescent and the Theatre Royal. High speed rail links are available from Bath Spa and Chippenham Stations to London Paddington at a journey time from 75 and 90 minutes respectively, these are due to decrease to closer to one hour as local electrification works are completed. The property is well placed for commuting with easy access to the M4 (Junctions 17 and 18) and the wider motorway network. An excellent village primary school is supported by an extensive selection of prestige schools in Bath including Prior Park, Stonar, Monkton Combe, King Edwards, The Royal High School for Girls and Kingswood, as well as two universities.

The property can then be found on the left hand side at the end of the road.
