Full description

Tenure: Freehold

End house is a delightful grade II listed Georgian home which in part dates back to the 1600s.

It is a large house with wide open corridors and doorways made for the petticoat lined, floor skimming dresses of centuries past. Like so many grand houses, accommodation has been arranged over three floors.

On entering the house, there is a sitting room/snug with fireplace with gas fire one side and a very long elegant dining room that could easily seat twelve or more. A large elegant drawing room sits to the rear, with a log burning stove, cornicing and shuttered windows.

The kitchen has country style cabinets, polished wooden flooring and space for more casual dining, as well as plenty of character with a butler's pantry, scullery and a larder/cold room close to hand. The garden room, overlooking the pretty mature gardens has a staircase up to a second garden room on the first floor. Once used as a waiting room, this leads into the former doctors consulting room. This room is now used as an artist's studio, but could be turned into a large bedroom with en-suite.

On the first floor are four double bedrooms, three with original fireplaces and all are in excellent decorative order. At the top of the house, a bedroom is accessed through a sitting room or dressing room and offers delightful rooftop views of historical Devizes.

Beneath the house there are two large cellars, with wine storage racks, offering a whole new floor of accessible storage space. Outside there is a converted former coach house, offering covered space for two cars and parking for two/three more cars. There is a delightful South facing part walled garden proliferated with mature fruit trees.

End house is situated in fashionable Long Street, one of the finest and most sought after locations, within five minute's level walking distance of the historic town centre and beautiful Hillworth Park. Devizes is a splendid historic market town that still hosts a weekly traditional outdoor market. There is an excellent range of shopping facilities and the town provides easy access to the larger cities of Georgian Bath and the Cathedral city of Salisbury. There are mainline railway stations at nearby Pewsey and Chippenham (London, Paddington) (approx. one hour twenty minutes to London) with junction 17 of the M4 motorway also close at hand.
