A UNIQUE DETACHED FAMILY HOUSE SET IN EXTENSIVE GARDENS AND GROUNDS WITH GARAGING AND OUTBUILDING AND LOCATED WITHIN WALKING DISTANCE OF THE CITY CENTRE
DESCRIPTION: This magnificent residence was built in 1934 of brick and part rendered elevations under a tile roof. The present owners have lived in the property for some forty years and have maintained it to a very good standard. The house has the benefit of double glazing as well as gas fired central heating and has some interesting features including panelling to the walls of the reception hall, stairs and landing, lovely open fireplaces in the dining room and sitting room and an unusual shaped kitchen/breakfast room. On the first floor there are four or five bedrooms as well as a fitted bathroom. The property has magnificent views to the west over Salisbury and beyond.
The house is set in extensive gardens and grounds of approximately two thirds of an acre. There is a drive leading from Dorset Road down to a large brick pavioured parking area adjacent to the triple garage beyond which is the machinery store/workshop and store room with gardeners WC. On the southern side there is an extensive area of lawn with greenhouse and summer house and lovely views of the Cathedral spire. On the western side there are sloping terraced gardens leading down to pedestrian access to Queensberry Road and on the northern side there is a further area of lawn with trees, shrubs and attractive terraced sitting area.
Properties of this calibre very seldom come onto the market in Salisbury and viewing is strongly recommended.
