The Property

Originally two cottages, the property has been sympathetically merged and modernised to offer a well thought-out and beautifully presented family home. Whilst being Grade II listed with many original features, there is a modern, clean and airy feel to the property with space in abundance.

Everyday access to the property is from the gravelled courtyard entering directly into the rear hallway. Turning right into the breakfast room/ kitchen gives the first opportunity to glimpse the impressive garden through patio doors. The kitchen is fresh and clean with modern units and granite worktops. Dual aspect windows with views to the garden, range cooker, underfloor heating and a lovely working wood-burning stove make this area very appealing. The breakfast room easily holds a large table for indoor entertaining. Stairs in the breakfast room lead to first floor.

Returning to the rear hallway, access is given to other rooms including a practical utility room, and the study, which in turn leads to downstairs WC, dining room, main staircase, entrance hall and cosy drawing room.

Beautiful feature fireplaces with wood burning stoves are included in both the dining room and drawing room helping to make the ground floor welcoming and cosy.

Ascending to the first floor via the main staircase to a central landing area. Doors lead to the master bedroom with beamed ceilings and ample built-in storage, a further two good sized bedrooms and a family bathroom add to the spaciousness of the upper floor. A single door hides a staircase leading to the second floor attic rooms which at present are unprepared.

Returning to the landing area the tour of the first floor culminates with entrance into impressive Jack and Jill suites, with shared shower room between. An impressive feature window overlooking the garden gives added wow factor to the property.

The property benefits from outstanding bespoke secondary glazing throughout.

Returning to the outside of the property gives the opportunity to view the extremely practical outbuildings. Currently set up as a hobby room and gym, with shower room, this large space gives many options for usage.

Grounds & Garden

Astoundingly beautiful trees and a woodland area with wild flowers frame the impressive enclosed garden perfectly, with the formal front garden cushioned from the road by beech hedging.

The inclusion of a sundial on the front façade, a freshwater well and old apple tree add to the overflowing charm of this period property.

Access to the property is through large entrance gates leading onto a gravelled courtyard suitable for parking a number of vehicles. To the right is the Outbuilding, carport, garden store and wood store. To the left is the side entrance to the main property.

Progressing to the rear of the property is a delightful south-westerly facing patio area, conveniently accessed from the breakfast room, making this area ideal for outdoors entertaining. Steps lead from the patio to the main lawn area and wooded area beyond. More formal gardens with patio area compliment the front of the property.


Kington Langley is a village and civil parish about 2 miles (3.2 km) north of Chippenham in Wiltshire, England. The beautiful village is just east of the A350 trunk road and extremely close to the M4, with the practical town of Chippenham just 7 minutes away. There is a public house (The Plough Inn) located in the village as well as St. Peters Church and a highly regarded primary school situated at the centre of the village. The scarecrow competition is a large part of the community and takes place each year.
