Shackleton Place

Shackleton Place - Huge One bedroom Open Plan Apartment

property description



This stunning, ground floor garden apartment is, without doubt, the largest one bed apartment on the development, occupying a footprint similar to the most expensive two bed apartment but without the additional service charge. This property offers fantastic contemporary living with an excellent and quite private covered terraced and a garden outlook. If you are looking for something special, then the massive open-plan living room/kitchen will surely impress you with its design and accessibility. It doesn't stop there; the bedroom is of a good size, there is an excellent hallway and even a walk-in store room that could easily suffice as a small study area. A well equipped kitchen with many appliances and a very practical wetroom with walk in shower add to the obvious benefits of this amazing home.

A unique setting with the feel of a hamlet community set among mature trees, rolling countryside and abundant wildlife you might be fooled to think you were living miles from anywhere, however the Market Town of Devizes is only 0.7 miles distance where you will find a thriving Market Town full of independent and well-known shops, as well as a market square with a super outdoor market every Thursday.
There’s plenty to keep you busy and active nearby. Devizes Leisure Centre is just 1.2 miles away and a cinema, library and Devizes Bowls Club are all within 1 mile of Shackleton Place.

Shackleton Place is a 'Retirement Living Plus' development Constructed in 2018 by multi award-winning McCarthy and Stone. It provides a fantastic lifestyle living opportunity for the over 70’s designed for independent living with the peace-of-mind provided by the day-to-day support of our excellent staff and Estate Manager and team who oversee the smooth running of the development. Homeowners benefit from an hour of free domestic assistance each week and there are extensive domestic and care packages available to suit individual needs and budgets. All apartments are equipped with a 24-hour emergency call facility and sophisticated intercom system providing both a visual and verbal link to the main development entrance. There is also the excellent guest suite widely used by visiting family and friends for which a small charge of £25 per night applies.

Devizes features a variety of local and national shops including a large Sainsbury's that's just under a mile from the development. The town is also lucky to have kept a good selection of unique independent shops offering a wide range of goods not found elsewhere. Weekly general and collectors markets, farmers' markets and continental markets also serve to give the town a rich sense of character and community.
A visit to the town's central Market Place offers several restaurants and cafes for laid back afternoons and evening meals, as well as a range of boutiques and shops. There is also a local cinema and a small pedestrianised area known as The Brittox. Devizes is also home to the Wadworth Brewery at the north end of Market Place. Their Shire Horses can regularly be seen making deliveries across the town centre.
Lovers of the great outdoors will enjoy the fantastic access to the stunning Salisbury plain in the heart of the Wiltshire countryside. With 300 square miles of chalk downlands, the plain is known for its rich archaeological history and is also home to the legendary Stonehenge.
