Former police chief's house goes on the market in Devizes
3:51pm Tuesday 17th July 2012 in News
The Devizes home of former Chief Constable and High Sheriff of Wiltshire, Dame Elizabeth Neville, has gone on the market.
Located in The Breach, one of the town’s best roads, Breakspears is a grand red brick Edwardian house, designed and built in 1906 for the Sloper family who owned a department store in the town.
Guy Straker who heads the Devizes office of selling agent Strakers said: "We are delighted to have received these instructions from Dame Elizabeth.
"Breakspears must be one of the best houses available in Devizes and it presents a rare opportunity to buy a family home of real quality in such a fine location."
Handsome in appearance, the house retains its Edwardian character with good ceiling heights and detailing typical of the period.
The accommodation is arranged around a fine entrance hall; three reception rooms on the ground floor together with a kitchen/breakfast room and utility room are complemented by five bedrooms, two with large bay windows, two bathrooms and a shower room.
The house is approached over a gated driveway that leads to a substantial garage and parking.
There are generous gardens, well-established with large lawns, well stocked borders and a heated swimming pool.
The property is on the market for £770,000. For more information, call Strakers estate agents on 01380 723451 or email email@example.com .
