Former Officer’s Houses in Devizes Proving Popular Ahead of Good Friday Launch – Marlborough Close by Annington

Easter weekend will mark the launch of a unique retrofit development in Devizes, Wiltshire. Designed to offer a more sustainable way of life, Marlborough Close by Annington will bring to the market just five four-bedroom homes, each having been carefully refurbished to become smarter and more efficient.

Each home at Marlborough Close has been brought up to EPC A – a standard achieved by only the most energy efficient homes. Smart technology has been optimised to bring these homes up to 21st Century standards, meaning homeowners can enjoy lower energy bills and a smaller carbon footprint. Sustainable upgrades include an AI-powered Mixergy Smart Cylinder Tank to each property, alongside an air source heat pump, 14 photovoltaic panels, and brand-new double-glazed windows, thermal rendering, and energy-efficient appliances.

The houses will go on the market on Good Friday (29th March) following exceptionally high demand, with nearly half of all pre-enquiries coming from local homebuyers living in the SN postcode. Proving to be particularly popular with movers seeking the countryside, Annington has seen interest from a balance of upsizers looking for room to grow, and downsizers pursuing sustainable living at an achievable price point.

Marlborough Close combines traditional country living with an environmentally-friendly lifestyle, thanks to its setting on the outskirts of the historic market town of Devizes, overlooking the rolling fields nearby. The development itself comprises five spacious detached and link-detached four-bedroom homes, located within an exclusive private gated close. Each property offers an abundance of living space, thanks to an open-plan kitchen/diner, a dual-aspect lounge, alongside four spacious bedrooms and two bathrooms.

Stacy Whitehead, Marketing Manager at Annington, comments: “Homes like these simply aren’t available elsewhere – Marlborough Close is truly a unique offering in Devizes. Tucked away in an idyllic countryside setting, these homes are a peaceful retreat for buyers seeking a more sustainable way of life without compromising on modern comforts. These properties really must be seen to be appreciated, which is why we will be opening the doors to our thoughtfully-designed show home on the launch weekend. Visitors will be able to experience firsthand the lifestyle on offer at Marlborough Close.

“With just five homes available to buy, demand is already incredibly high. To avoid disappointment, we strongly encourage anyone interested to book a viewing for the launch weekend on 29th March, so please get in touch!”

Devizes is one of Wiltshire’s best-kept secrets. The town has retained its market heritage, hosting a monthly farmers’ market, and a Food and Drink Festival in September. On the town’s bustling high street can be found a selection of independently-owned businesses, shops, and cafes, alongside their chain counterparts.

Marlborough Close is located on the edge of Wiltshire’s famous rolling landscape, ideal for countryside walks and excursions. The Kennet and Avon Canal is just a short walk away, while the millennium Devizes White Horse chalk hill figure proves an exciting day out for experienced walkers. Swindon is also within a short distance to direct bus links, and the nearest railway station, Pewsey Station, offers services to Newbury (22 minutes), Reading (42 minutes), and London Paddington (1h 5m). Westwards, Exeter is less than 1h 30m away.

Prices for the four-bedroom homes at Marlborough Close start from £565,000. To book a viewing at Marlborough Close, please visit the website at or call Allen & Harris on 01380 729990. To find out more about Annington, visit
