An Edwardian town house in Salisbury city centre is on the market for the first time in more than 50 years.

The house sits within a spacious and private corner plot in Albany Road and has period features including original floorboards, cornicing, deep skirtings, picture rails and original fireplaces.

Paul Cadge of Savills said: “This is a wonderful and rare townhouse; detached, well-proportioned and really interesting, with a wealth of period features.”

Salisbury Journal:

The sitting room towards the back of the house has an original fire surround and mantle, with French doors through to the garden room which has two full walls of windows, travertine flooring with underfloor heating, and doors onto the garden.

An original full-height Edwardian oak dresser fills one wall of the kitchen/breakfast room, which also has a walk-in pantry with original ‘meat safe’, slate work surfaces and, like the kitchen, a quarry tiled floor.

There is also a walk-in larder and an L-shaped utility/ boot room and downstairs shower room/WC.

Upstairs, there are four large double bedrooms off the galleried landing, all with original fitted wardrobes and two with bay windows.

A fifth smaller bedroom/ study has French doors opening onto a wrought iron balcony.

A family shower room with separate WC completes the first floor and there is also a large, part boarded loft space.

The property also has a walled garden, a garage and fully insulated studio.

The garden, with glimpses of the Cathedral spire, is mostly lawn, with areas of terrace/pergolas draped with wisteria, clematis, vines and honeysuckle, in addition to numerous mature trees, such as ginkgo, walnut, holly, fig, apple and pear.

The house is being marketed by Savills for a guide price of £1,100,000.
