Property Summary

A rare opportunity to purchase an exceptional family home with a highly sought after address and breathtaking views! A substantial detached house, surrounded by well-tended gardens, with ample driveway parking and a double garage. This individual property is beautifully situated within Old Park, a desirable location on the edge of town, within walking distance of the historic Market Place of Devizes.

The original part of the property was built in the early 1800s, forming part of an estate, and was believed to be the gardener's cottage, hence the name. A two up, two down house with a ladder, rather than stairs! The cottage was then extended & modernised in the 1930s, and again in the early 1990s, to create a four bedroom family home with the addition of a detached double garage.

The current owners bought the house in 1992 and continued to improve the family home, adding three more reception rooms and two further bedrooms in 1996. Then in 2005, the old scullery/kitchen was demolished, and a superb new kitchen/dining room was built in its place, designed around the stunning views! At this time, the heating was upgraded, the downstairs toilet was converted into a wet room and the sixth bedroom became a generous sized family bathroom.

The accommodation on the ground floor comprises a large dual aspect entrance hall, featuring the original Quarry tiles, a practical modern wet room, a lovely sitting room with an exposed brick chimney breast & inset log-burning stove, a light & airy garden room, a beautiful drawing room with solid Oak floors & Bath stone fireplace, a great size study, a further reception room with a working open fire, a utility room, and an impressive kitchen/dining room with exceptional views across the valley!

Upstairs, the spacious landing and hallway lead to five double bedrooms and a large family bathroom, featuring a freestanding roll top bath. The main bedroom features an en-suite shower room and a dressing area with ample fitted wardrobes. The guest bedroom has an en-suite bathroom with a shower over the bath, and two of the remaining three bedrooms have built-in wardrobes.

The house is approached via a private road. There is ample off-road parking and a double garage with light and power. Shallow steps lead down from the driveway to a spacious & private patio terrace, adjacent to the property. Well-tended gardens wrap around Gardener's Cottage, mainly laid to lawn with decorative borders, featuring a large garden store, a beautifully made bin store, a timber garden shed and a log store.

This really is an extremely individual property, which has clearly been well-maintained and improved over the years, offering plenty of space for a large family. Conveniently situated, with a village/country feel, yet within walking distance of a thriving market town, offering a range of amenities. Offered for sale with no onward chain. Internal viewings are by appointment only with Caulfields.
