A grade I listed 18th Century building with an intriguing history, a symmetrical façade and striking period-style interiors is up for sale or rental in the city centre.

The Hall, on New Street, was constructed around the same time as other famous buildings like Malmesbury House, Arundells, Mompesson House and Myles Place, and belonged to the alderman of Salisbury and MP between 1751-58, William Hussey. 

It is on offer for £775,000 as a freehold sale, and £60,000 a year for rental on a new lease, from Myddelton & Major Estate Agents. 

Built in the mid-18th century, the eastern wall contains medieval flint and tile work as well as 17th century brick work, according to Ancient and Historical Monuments in the City of Salisbury.

Outside of the door is a plaque which suggests Alderman William Hussey built the property on the site of the old Assembly house.

The three-floor building has a highly symmetrical facade, as was fashionable in the 18th century Georgian era which is a period known for its ancient Greek Motifs, with a bay supported by four Doric columns. 

There is an impressive entrance hall with a stone fireplace, the floor space in total amounting to 6777 square feet. 

On the ground floor there is a double height library, the first floor has a large drawing room, and every floor has several separate rooms with their own unique character.

It was last used as offices, as reflected in the photos, but has planning consent to be developed for educational, training, or medical uses, with the potential for residential use or could be converted into separate apartments.

It is located next to the Old George Mall multistorey car park right in Salisbury city centre and overlooks the White Hart Hotel.
