The property is situated just outside the village of West Kington at the end of Holloway Hill, surrounded by glorious countryside and well placed for the villages of Burton and Nettleton.
The picturesque village of West Kington is sought after because it offers the rare combination of peace and tranquillity together with easy access to the M4 motorway.
The village itself comprises a hamlet and a church and there is a thriving community and excellent pubs, village shops and schools nearby in Acton Turville and Marshfield.
Of particular note is the Burton Farm Shop & Kitchen, which is less than 1.5 miles from the property and open 7 days a week.
West Kington makes an excellent base for commuting into Bath, Bristol, Swindon, Chippenham and Trowbridge; Junction 18 of the M4 is approximately 4 miles distant, and there are regular fast trains to London Paddington from Bath Spa (from 75 minutes) and Chippenham (from 59 minutes).
Within the area is an excellent selection of public and state schools at all levels.
Kington Down Cottage is situated on its own just off a country lane, surrounded by glorious countryside. Built in attractive Cotswold stone, the property offers in excess of 2,000 sq ft of accommodation arranged over two floors.
To the ground floor is a welcoming entrance hall, sitting room with feature fireplace and exposed stone wall, a study/home office and spacious kitchen/dining room. The country-style kitchen/ dining room is well equipped. There is a practical wooden-style floor, exposed beams and stone walls. A particular feature is the wood burner to one end. Across the back of the home and linking all principal living rooms is a light and spacious garden room, which offers tiled floors and three points of access to the rear gardens. It can be sub divided to offer smaller, more functional spaces, as has been done by the present owners.
Additionally to the ground floor is a bathroom.
To the first floor is the principal bedroom with an en suite shower room and three further bedrooms (bedroom four is currently used as a creative space).
The property enjoys a generous plot with gardens and grounds amounting to 0.47 of an acre with no immediate neighbours and unspoilt views across neighbouring countryside and farmland.
To the front of the property is a five-bar gate leading into a driveway and large single garage. There are raised beds to the front, which are well stocked with a number of shrubs and bushes.
There is also a practical workshop/lean-to leading off the garage.
Access via either side leads around to the rear gardens, where you are immediately struck by the panoramic country views. There is a paved terrace leading off the back of the house, which in turn leads to a level lawn area.
There are well-stocked flower beds and further steps and pathways leading down the garden and to the orchard/natural part of the grounds. There is a further paved seating area with pergola over and far-reaching views. The orchard/natural area at the bottom of the garden is ideal for young minds to explore or simply to relax and reflect by the pond and enjoy the peace and quiet.
Overall the gardens have something for all ages with stunning views and privacy combined; they are a rare find in today's busy world.
The property is located along the Cotswold Way lane heading in the direction of Burton.
