Carlton Terrace, Devizes

Guide price

Bedrooms: 2
A handsome, red brick cottage, dating back to circa 1900, retaining character features and charm throughout, this 2-bedroom terraced home is offered to the market with no onward chain and with the benefit of your garden backing onto the peaceful Kennet & Avon canal, makes it perfect for first time buyers or those looking for a peaceful pied-à-terre.

Walking in through the front door, you are greeted by an entrance porch, which, in turn, leads into the bay fronted living room. The well-sized living room has a gas fire and large bay window, flooding the space with natural light. You are next met by a versatile reception room, currently used as a dining room and offering ample storage. The well equipped and modern refitted kitchen has a range of floor and wall mounted units, oak work tops, electric oven & grill, integral fridge/freezer and with a window looking out into the pretty rear garden, making this a really lovely room. A sunny conservatory completes the downstairs accommodation.

To the first floor, 2 double bedrooms are on offer, the principal bedroom is dual aspect and has ample space for wardrobes. There is also a modern 3-piece bathroom suite, with a 'rainfall' shower over the bath and heated towel rail.

Externally is the most wonderful rear garden, lined with mature shrubs either side, mostly laid to lawn and with shingled seating areas, it leads directly to the Kennet & Avon Canal making the end of the garden perfect for your morning coffee, or something else a little later in the day.


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.
