The house dates back to around the late 1940s but was extended in the late 1970s and again in the 1990s and 2010/11 into the spacious home it is now. With a flexible layout inside, this unique home could suit both families and downsizers alike with good reception space complementing the 4/5 bedrooms. A long 'L' shaped hallway with engineered oak flooring has a door to the left into a 23'10 bay fronted sitting room with an electric stove and a continuation of the oak flooring, and further doors to the right into two double bedrooms. In addition there is a refitted bathroom with a bath and shower, a separate WC and a useful utility room. The stylish updated kitchen has a central island with granite worktops and a range of quality integrated appliances including a 'Stoves' oven and induction hob. There are two sets of French doors- one into the conservatory/sun room and the other opening out to the garden. On the first floor there are 2/3 bedrooms alongside a study and additional family bathroom,. Various access points in to the eaves provides useful storage.

Outside, there is driveway parking leading to a 16'10 tandem garage with an extended carport behind it. There are a couple of older single storey outbuildings (offering potential change of use), with a central WC. At the far end of the sizeable lawned garden is a detached double garage/workshop with light and power. This 588sqft building offers great scope for conversion to an annex/studio, or even an additional dwelling (all of course subject to gaining the relevant planning consents).


'Saxon' is beautifully appointed, being tucked down a small lane just off the market place, with fabulous views of Devizes Castle. It is ideally located for all the shops and restaurants in town. Devizes is bisected by the Kennet & Avon 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. Bath, Salisbury, Swindon, Marlborough and Chippenham are all within a 30-mile radius.
