**WONDERFUL WATERSIDE HOME** BACKING ONTO CANAL** OVER 2100 SQFT** 4 DOUBLE BEDROOMS & 4 RECEPTIONS** Relax in your own hot tub and enjoy watching the barges pass by at this superb canalside cottage! This impressive family home is the perfect definition of a 'Tardis'- with over 2100 sqft of beautifully presented accommodation that is not immediately apparent from the charming character facade. From its previous incarnation as a shop, the property has been transformed by the current owners into a splendid home that blends the old with the new. Inside, a delightful panelled entrance hall leads off to a 22ft dual aspect sitting room with a marble fire surround and a separate dining room with painted beams, an exposed brick chimney and doors to the garden. There is a stylish 'Magnet' kitchen with solid granite worktops, well equipped with a range of quality integrated appliances to include self cleaning ovens and a wine chiller! Furthermore there is a family room to the rear, a utility and downstairs cloakroom. On the first floor the cottage is equally impressive with four double bedrooms, dressing room, a family bathroom and separate shower room. The vaulted master bedroom is light and airy with a large Veluxe, French doors to a balcony and en suite WC and shower rooms. A study with a further balcony completes the layout. Outside there is parking for two cars, a garage and store room. The landscaped garden is south facing and opens onto the canal with a hot tub set under an oak framed gazebo with lighting. There are apple, pear, plum and bay trees featuring alongside ornamental shrubs and trees.


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.
