DESCRIPTION: This is a rare opportunity to purchase one of the best known properties in Salisbury. The High House is located on the southern edge of the Cathedral Close within easy walking distance of all facilities of the City. The house was built around 1800 of brick elevations under a tiled roof and is Grade II listed being of special historic and architectural interest and is considered by the Dean and Chapter to be within the Cathedral Close and a key is supplied to the south gate to The Close. It has been well modernised by the present owners and works have included the refurbishment of the kitchen with the provision of an Aga, rewiring, provision of a gas fired central heating system and secondary double glazing has been fitted to some windows.
The accommodation is laid out on four floors with the benefit of potential separate accommodation on the lower ground floor with its own access. There are lovely views to the east over the River Nadder and to the north to the Spire.
The house also has the benefit of a charming courtyard garden to the front with a large single garage adjacent.
LOCATION: The property is located just on the southern edge of the City centre within reach of the famous Cathedral Close as well as the facilities of the City centre. These include a wide variety of shops and supermarkets, good schools, both primary and secondary, and also a main line railway station. There is a good local bus service and in Harnham nearby there is a public house, hotel, recreation ground and the lovely walks along the river banks.
It is seldom that properties of this size and quality come onto the market so near to the City centre and viewing is strongly recommended.
