A rare opportunity to purchase a CHARACTER FAMILY HOME in a LARGE GARDEN in probably the BEST ROAD in Salisbury.

Directions

From the city proceed south along Exeter Street, over the roundabout into Newbridge Road. Proceed through the traffic lights onto the Coombe Road and at the mini-roundabout turn right into Bouverie Avenue. At the top the road bears left into Bouverie Avenue South where the property will be seen on the left hand side.

Description

Dating from 1925, a detached family home, still with original character features, set in about a third of an acre with ample parking and distant views. Planning permission has been granted for an extension (19/00282/FUL) and there is still further potential for a substantial addition (subject to permissions) to create a stunning home.

Character features include floorboards, fireplaces, picture rails and servant's call box. Gas central heating is by radiators and there are double glazed windows throughout.

Bouverie Avenue South is probably the most sought after road in Salisbury with its wide, tree-lined avenue, large houses and gardens, within walking distance of the city and surrounding countryside.
