An attractive bay fronted end of terrace Victorian cottage dating from 1900 that is conveniently located within easy reach of the local amenities and features a good sized garden that backs directly onto the Kennet and Avon Canal.

The property is presented in excellent decorative order and tastefully finished throughout. An entrance lobby opens through to a cosy sitting room to the front with a built in cupboard with shelving and a feature fireplace (currently capped but with scope to reopen). There is a separate dining room with exposed wooden floorboards, 3 under stairs cupboards and a door that leads into the smart refitted kitchen. The kitchen has tiled flooring, an integrated dish washer, a 4 ring induction hob and an electric cooker, as well as a window overlooking the garden and canal beyond. There is also a handy lean to garden room with sliding doors. On the first floor, the two double bedrooms both feature Victorian fireplaces and there is a refitted shower room with a walk-in double width shower. A space saving staircase ascends to a boarded loft space with light and power, eaves storage and a Veluxe skylight- offering scope for a study area.

Outside, there is on street parking to the front and an attractive rear garden with a shingled sun terrace, a timber wood store and shed and lawn that runs up to a seating area taking in superb views of the canal and locks. Available for sale with no onward chain.


The property is set in a most convenient location being just a short stroll from the town centre and enjoying superb views over the famous Kennet and Avon Canal to the rear. Historic Devizes is bisected by the canal, part of a waterway joining London to Bristol and famed for its flight of twenty-nine locks, an engineering and aesthetic marvel walking distance from the town, and a paradise for canoeists, barges and anglers. Featuring a wealth of listed buildings and a weekly market, the bustling town enjoys a beautiful setting amidst Wiltshire's chalk downlands criss-crossed by ancient byways and prehistoric earthworks providing a scenic playground for walkers and cyclists. Cultural facilities include a museum, active theatre, cinema and vibrant live-music scene. The major centres of Bath, Salisbury, Swindon, Marlborough and Chippenham are all within a 30-mile radius.
