Firsdown, Salisbury, Wiltshire Sp5
An individual detached family house with spacious accommodation, substantial garage/workshop and an attractive mature garden approaching one third of an acre, quietly situated in Firsdown
A detached family house, believed to originally date from the 1950’s, constructed of brick/tile hung elevations under a tiled roof. The accommodation comprises an open sided porch leading into a double height reception hall with wet room, two reception rooms, garden room and separate kitchen/breakfast room. A third reception room could double up as a fourth double bedroom adjacent to a spacious wet room. An interlinking corridor serving the kitchen provides a useful freezer/utility room accessing the garage/workshop. To the first floor there are three further good sized bedrooms all with en suite facilities. The driveway provides parking for several cars. The well-established level garden approaching one third of one acre is bordered by mature hedging and trees and is mainly laid to lawn with an attractive ornamental pond, summer house and garden shed. We believe there is great scope and potential to internally remodel the kitchen and dining room creating a large open plan kitchen/living area opening onto the secluded rear garden (subject to all necessary consents). In addition there is BT and Virgin fibre to the property.
The property is located in the hamlet of Firsdown, close to the Winterslows and Pitton which are about six miles north east of Salisbury and have public houses, a church, school community centre, village hall, shops and bus service to Salisbury. Salisbury also offers excellent educational, leisure and recreational facilities as well as a main line railway station with fast trains to London, Waterloo. The village of Grateley also has a mainline railway station with trains to Waterloo in about 1 hour 15 minutes.
