A substantial Grade II property with commercial and residential use.
Box Bush House is Grade II listed and dates from the late seventeenth century. The property is constructed of coursed rubble with a Cotswold stone roof and retains some period features including stone mullioned windows with drip moulds and a Tudor arch doorway. The property has been in the ownership of the same family for at least 40 years and has operated as a very successful model railway exhibition and toy shop for over 25 years. Box Bush is a complex and intriguing building offering over 8,000 sq. ft. of accommodation divided equally between commercial and residential use.
The ground floor is dedicated to the operation of the model railway exhibition and shop comprising interconnected exhibition rooms, kitchen, workshop and cloakroom. There is a traditional toy shop at the front of the property providing access to the exhibition.
The principal living accommodation extends to 2,025 sq. ft. and set out over the first floor. The bedroom accommodation is on the second floor accessed via two separate staircases. Exposed timbers and vaulted ceilings are a particular feature. At the rear of the property is the entrance to a self-contained flat which is set out over two floors.
Vehicular access is to the rear of the property where there is a block of four single garages and an extensive parking area and car port. This area provides ample opportunity for reconfiguration depending on the future use of the property.
There is a small and separate area of lawn enclosed by a low stone wall with a mature Cedar tree to the front of the property with potential for additional revenue streams.
The sale of the property presents an exciting opportunity to purchase a charming period property situated in the heart of a popular and thriving Cotswold village.
There is a right of access at the rear of the property over designated parts of the driveway in favour of three adjoining properties. Box Bush House has a pedestrian right of way over the adjoining properties' front passageway.
Part of the property operated as Bourton Model Railway Limited is registered for VAT. Please note that the vendors are retaining ownership of the business.
