You will be delighted and enthralled as you enter this stunning early eighteenth century double fronted Georgian town house which is listed grade II*

This important and historic town house retains immense charm and considerable character and has been the subject of a book, Samuel Powell's house, The early 18th century town house of a Devizes clothier'

The house is one of the most important of that period in this historic old Wiltshire market town, also once the home of surgeon Joseph Needham, commemorated by a plaque.

This house has retained a wealth of original features, architectural details, fixtures and fittings, including stone work, panelling, plaster work, decoration and ornate fireplaces. There is a spacious three roomed dry cellar and attic room with access to a roof terrace enjoying dramatic views across the historic town towards the castle and beyond.

An unusual feature with a period property in fashionable Long Street is the beautiful 160' walled garden with many seating areas, rose arch, fruit trees and a kitchen garden. Of particular benefit is the generous secure parking behind automated gates.

This property provides a convenient, comfortable and flexible home with a spacious garden room with underfloor heating to the Aga kitchen with cool larder and dining room. On the first floor is a light and classic drawing room which runs the entire length of the house. A truly stunning Georgian residence in the very heart of Devizes, a historic town with a lively weekly market.

There is an excellent range of facilities and the town provides easy access further afield, including local bus services to Swindon, Salisbury and Georgian Bath.

There are mainline railway stations at nearby Pewsey and Chippenham(London, Paddington)approx. one hour twenty minutes with junction 17 of the M4 motorway also close at hand.
