Guide price

  • Bedrooms: 5
Sundial Cottage is a fine Grade II Listed property set in an acre of gardens on the edge of Kington Langley. This well presented and spacious home has been much improved by the current owners and provides living accommodation over two floors as well as two attic rooms. Externally there is a large detached outbuilding which is currently used as an office and gym with a handy shower room. The beautiful Cotswold stone elevations to the front of the original cottages are of particular note and have an inset sundial dated 1685. There are impressive character features throughout the property including mullioned windows, beamed ceilings and stone fireplaces along with modern additions such as the Oak staircase and limestone flooring.


The property is situated on the edge of the popular village of Kington Langley, an old established village still retaining much of its village character with a public house, parish church, good primary school, village playing fields and both a tennis and croquet club. It is particularly well located for access to Chippenham which has a wide range of amenities to include High Street retailers plus supermarkets and retail parks and, in addition, there is a leisure centre with indoor swimming pool, library, cinema and public parks. Chippenham also benefits excellent schooling with numerous primary and three highly sought after secondary schools. For those wishing to commute there is also a regular main line rail service from Chippenham station to London (Paddington) and the west country and the M4 motorway is easily accessed via Junction 17 a few miles north of the town.
