**Ideal Renovation Project** No Chain** 2 Double Bedrooms** Town Centre** Garden This is an exciting opportunity to complete the renovation of a Grade II Listed cottage that is just a stone's throw from the town centre. The cottage has had a good amount of work carried out to include a new gas boiler, fitted kitchen and some plumbing but is ready for individuals to finish it off to their own tastes and requirements. Inside a shared lobby with 11a leads to Number 1's front door. The sitting/dining room has exposed ceiling beams and a fireplace and leads through to the fitted kitchen with a fridge and washing machine. On the first floor there is a double bedroom and a bathroom (there is currently a bath but otherwise it is all plumbed for other sanitary ware to go in) Further stairs rise to a light dual aspect double bedroom with eaves storage. There is a door into a separate WC with wash hand basin and a good recess space behind this that possibly allows room to create a full en suite shower room. Outside there is a good sized divorced garden (accessed via a pathway from the rear) that is at present rather wild but again allows creative gardeners to landscape to their own style.


The property is conveniently situated within easy level walking distance of the town centre in a highly sought after street bordered by similarly delightful buildings. A Bridewell is a 16th century term for a prison or reform school for petty offenders. Bridewell Street is named after such an Institution. In 1579 a 'Bridewell' was built in Devizes and it remained the only county Bridewell until about 1631. It almost certainly stood from the outset in Bridewell Street where The Grange is now.

The historic market town of Devizes has many amenities including town centre shopping, a leisure centre, schools for all ages, various supermarkets, a variety of shops, cinema, theatre and thriving weekly market. The historic Kennet & Avon Canal runs through the town providing fishing and walking facilities. The major centres of Bath, Salisbury, Swindon, Marlborough and Chippenham are all within a 30 mile radius.
