'Chancel End' is a deceptively spacious property that is beautifully light and airy, having recently been redecorated by the current owners. The beautifully presented accommodation begins with an impressive reception hall/study area with an attractive original fireplace and stone flooring with double doors through to a good sized sitting room with twin sash windows and window seats, exposed wooden floorboards and a further fireplace with stone surround. The elegant bathroom has a roll top bath and limestone tiling from 'Artisans.' From the hall, stairs descend to a charming kitchen/dining on the lower ground floor with 3 windows, a gas fired AGA and limestone flooring. A feature stone framed fresco brings the illusion of walking into an Italianate garden. The two large double bedrooms have exposed wood flooring and wonderful views of The Norman church of St John's. A generous loft space has light and power socket, a window at each end (facing N + S) and 2 radiators and this generous and usable space offers further potential. This superb home could be an ideal holiday home or a boutique 'Air B&B' opportunity and a viewing is strongly encouraged to appreciate this characterful home.


The property is beautifully appointed, located just off Long Street right within St John's Churchyard, overlooking St John's Church and surrounded by equally characterful homes with town centre shopping right on the doorstep.

Historic 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. The major centres of Bath, Salisbury, Swindon, Marlborough and Chippenham are all within a 30-mile radius.
