Tenure: Freehold

Swan House is a pretty village house thought to date back to the 17th century. Built of local stone under a tiled roof, the front elevation captures a traditional feel and an appearance that is typical of this part of the Wylye Valley. The property has been sympathetically restored by the current owners with many original character features retained, including the wonderful inglenook fireplace and stone mullion windows with deep window sills.

The heart of the home is the wonderful sitting room, with its deep set inglenook fireplace with a Jotel wood burner. There is a side door onto the terrace from the sitting room, perfect for outside entertaining.

The dining room, which is triple aspect, is light and airy and could be extended on the south elevation, subject to the necessary planning permission. There is also a good sized loft which has potential to be converted at first floor level.

The kitchen has east and south facing windows and fitted wooden units, handmade Italian tiles and a cleverly designed pantry. There is an oil fired Rayburn cooker, which functions the water, heating and cooking. There is also a cloakroom and utility room on the ground floor.

On the first floor there are two double bedrooms, both of which have fitted wardrobes and a family bathroom, which has a separate shower cubicle and a bath. On the second floor there are two further double bedrooms.

Hanging Langford is a popular village in the heart of the beautiful Wylye Valley countryside. The village is composed mainly of attractive period houses and is positioned well away from any main roads. There are endless walks and bridal ways throughout the valley and into nearby Grovely Woods. Langford Lakes Nature Reserve provides a haven for bird and wildlife within this conservation area.

The village hall has an active social calendar, with a variety of events throughout the year, including film nights, Pilates classes, acoustic café evenings and a youth club.

Set in an idyllic position, Hanging Langford remains conveniently situated. The next door village of Wylye has a village shop and a post office and in Steeple Langford there is also a good pub.

The A303 is just over 2 miles away and gives access to London and the national motorway network. To the south east is the cathedral city of Salisbury which has a direct train service to London Waterloo, as well as a wide range of recreational, cultural and shopping facilities.

There are a range of excellent primary schools in the valley and both private and state schools in Salisbury. Salisbury has also retained its grammar schools, Bishop Wordsworth and South Wilts for Girls.

The garden is an absolute sanctuary and has been carefully divided into different areas of interest. There are established flower beds and mature trees including Rowan and Birch. The garden is well stocked with beautiful flowers; honeysuckle, clematis, rambling roses and hollyhocks to name but a few. There is also a productive vegetable garden and soft fruit cage, with raspberries and strawberries. A large greenhouse and two further outbuildings make for a good potting shed and garden machinery storage.

Towards the bottom of the garden is a small orchard with a mix of apple and pear trees providing shelter for the chickens, overlooking the adjacent paddocks with views onto the River Wylye. There is also a fabulous summer house, which benefits from having electricity and is the perfect studio, home office or outside dining room.

There is ample parking at the property, with a good sized single garage and parking for several cars along the drive.
