Annington has launched the first release of former Ministry of Defence homes which are surplus to MOD requirements, and are now available to purchase in the historic market town of Devizes.

The first five homes, which are a mix of 11 three-bedroom detached and semi-detached homes, will be available to view from 17th June. Providing the perfect opportunity for buyers to put their own stamp on, the homes are set in a sought after residential area off Pans Lane, Devizes, and are expected to be popular with downsizers and first time buyers.

Known as ‘Wiltshire’s hidden gem’, Devizes is a prominent market town that is characterised by a thriving community and was ranked the best place to escape to the country in 2021 by the London Economic. Home to period buildings and a historic market square to rival Bath and Salisbury (both approx. 45 minutes away by car), Devizes has a variety of independent shops and supermarkets, a popular leisure centre and annual community festivals, alongside good schools.

New homeowners will find a wealth of history at their fingertips, with the town home to the award-winning Wiltshire Museum, whilst being just 16 miles from Stonehenge. The properties themselves are located in an already-established residential area and the rolling countryside of Wiltshire is just a short walk away.

Connor Hill, Senior Sales Negotiator at local agent Allen and Harris, comments: “We’re expecting a lot of interest for these properties, which offer the perfect balance of affordability, location and scope for improvement. Devizes’ property market remains a real pocket of activity, and with just a handful of homes available to buy within the first release, we’re expecting to receive a lot of interest from prospective buyers.”

Louise Saunders, Sales & Marketing Manager at Annington, adds: “These homes are the ideal blank canvas for buyers wanting to really make something their own, whilst the established residential setting means that there’s a ready-made community waiting to be joined.”

Prices start at £225,000 for a three bedroom semi-detached home. To find out more and book a viewing, please contact the dedicated selling agent, Allen and Harris on 01380 729900.
