The Orchard is an end of terrace period farm cottage. Situated in the entrance to the Pewsey Vale, on a third of an acre containing a variety of fruit trees, purpose built stable block, store, large parking area and drive. Fields surround the property with far reaching views up to Salisbury Plain and the white horse on Roundway Hill.

The current owners have installed an oil fired central heating system, re roofed both the pitched main roof and the single storey flat roof and updated the electrics. They have built a smart stable block of three boxes with easily removable internal partitions, that would create a usable 36' x 12' building with an attached store.
There is potential, subject to the usual planning, to extend the house either to the side, rear or front. The kitchen extension was built with footings to take a second storey. There would be the possibility, subject to change of use and planning, to convert the outbuildings to an annexe or office.

Directions
From The Market Place, head up Long Street, turning left onto Southbroom Road at the mini roundabout. Follow the road around, keep right onto the Nursteed Road in the direction of Andover and, at the Fox and Hounds pub, turn right into Sleight. Follow the lane up hill and down dale until you see three white cottages ahead, take the driveway immediately after the three garages.

Location
Sleight is a delightful rural spot less than one and a half miles from the centre of Devizes but surrounded by fields with direct access to a by-way. The current owners have grazing agreements with two separate farmers totalling approximately six acres within sight of the house. It is likely that a new owner of the cottage would be able to continue with similar arrangements. There is wonderful outriding direct from the property, Salisbury Plain is within three quarters of an hour on horseback utilising a network of bridleways, byways and quiet country lanes.

Devizes itself is home to a vibrant music, food and cultural calendar of festivals as well as a bustling weekly produce and antiques market. There are a good range of supermarkets, independent shops, pubs and cafes. For the engergetic, there are a variety of sporting clubs and a leisure centre and we have a library and museum as well as a cinema and theatre.

The larger centres of Bath, Salisbury and Bristol are all easily accessible as are both the M3 and M4. There are mainline stations at Pewsey and Chippenham within half an hour, running into London Paddington in just over an hour.

Inside Devizes

from a local eye view

In the area

Devizes has a beautiful Art Deco cinema which features all the latest live streamings from the National Theatre and Royal Opera House, as well as an Amateur Theatre situated on the edge of the canal at Devizes Wharf. There are many walks along the canal as well as in community woodland, all within a few minutes' walk of the centre.
