Swan House, in all probability, dates back to the 17th Century, and, with warm mellow stone elevations and mullioned windows, typical of Wiltshire farmhouses, the house sits easily within the extremely pretty rural village of Hanging Langford.
Later additions have added to the accommodation and the house now forms an excellent family home with four good size bedrooms balanced by generous reception space.
Carefully restored, the interior does not disappoint and retains much to the period character that one would hope to find in a house of this age. Exposed beams and stone walls, mullioned windows with deep sills, a fabulous Inglenook fireplace and timber, latch doors, combine to create a warm inviting feel to this well loved family home.
The Sitting Room is set in the centre of the house, with a Jotel woodburner fitted into the Inglenook ensuring that it is a cosy place in which to relax, whilst a door opening to the terrace makes it an equally pleasant room in which to entertain in the summer months. This leads into a triple aspect Dining Room that is beautifully light and airy.
The Kitchen/Breakfast Room is fitted with bespoke wooden cupboards and drawers that complement the character of the property and includes a cleverly designed pantry. Warmed by an oil fired Rayburn (for cooking, heat and water), the kitchen also has space for a table and chairs, making it a sociable space in which to work and congregate. There is also a separate utility room/cloakroom.
On the first floor there are two double bedrooms, both with fitted wardrobes and a family bathroom including a separate shower cubicle. The second floor offers two further double bedrooms.
Due to the generous space surrounding Swan House, there is potential for a two storey extension to the rear and around the side of the property, subject to necessary planning consent.
A driveway to the side provides ample parking and leads to a good size single garage.
The Garden is a delight, a large, traditional cottage garden filled with colour and scent from well stocked herbaceous beds and borders and including lovely mature trees that add height and interest throughout the seasons.
The large plot is divided into different areas and includes a productive vegetable garden with fruit cage, large greenhouse and two garden outbuilding which provide excellent storage. An area of orchard with a mix of pear and apple trees, overlooks adjacent countryside towards the River Wylye, with a well placed Summerhouse, with power connected, providing the perfect spot to relax or use as a home office/studio.
Hanging Langford is a pretty village with a mixture of period cottages and family homes, set away from main roads amid the beautiful Wylye Valley.
The village is situated within a Conservation Area and the surrounding countryside offers wonderful opportunities to enjoy many pursuits including excellent riding, shooting, cycling and walking. Nearby Grovely Woods and Langford Lakes Nature Reserve provide a haven for bird and wildlife.
Local amenities can be found in the nearby village of Wylye and along with The Langfords, there is a strong community spirit, built around not only the parish and local events, but the sports facilities, organisations and people within the villages.
The Cathedral City of Salisbury has a wide range of shops, leisure and entertainment facilities. Excellent schooling within easy reach with many highly regarded schools in both the private and state sector.
The A303 and A36 are easily accessible providing links to the national motorway network.
From Salisbury take the A36 in a westerly direction towards Warminster. At Wilton, continue straight over the roundabout staying on the A36. Continue along this road for approximately 6 miles, taking the left hand turn sign posted 'The Langfords.' Continue through the village of Steeple Langford, turning left down Duck Street, before the Church, signposted towards Hanging Langford. Continue along this road for 0.5 miles, turning right at the T-junction. Swan House will be found on the right hand side after about half a mile.
