TENURE: Share of Freehold
Situated on a residential road just a few moments’ walk from the historic Cathedral Close and market square is this characterful ground floor garden apartment, converted from an attractive late Georgian terraced property with a wealth of period features, dating back to 1812. Comprising the ground floor of the main house and an annex extension to the rear, the property is deceptively spacious and offers a flexible layout thus providing excellent scope for the new owner. The vendor has embarked on an extensive modernisation project which has improved the interiors while retaining many of the period features, including an original tiled fireplace and picture rails.
The apartment is entered via a shared hallway with a cloakroom leading to the two areas of accommodation, including the main living space in the original part of the house. This comprises a spacious kitchen/dining room with stylish contemporary fitted units and a number of integrated appliances. The separate 18ft sitting room has original French doors leading to the garden. There is then a superb master bedroom and a modern family shower room.
On the other side of the apartment there is a utility room, two interconnecting bedrooms, and an en suite shower room. The middle bedroom is currently used as a snug but would equally make a good home office. This secondary accommodation is ideally suited for use as an annexe for family or friends or great income potential.
Crane Street is situated in the heart of the cathedral city of Salisbury, with an attractive mix of period properties and the open green space of Queen Elizabeth Gardens. Within a level walk are most of Salisbury's excellent facilities including shopping, leisure, cultural and educational. Salisbury has a mainline station with trains to London Waterloo (journey time approximately 86 minutes), as well as a twice weekly market. The A303 provides access to the south west and additionally London via the M3. Good local schools are numerous and include Salisbury Cathedral School, Chafyn Grove and Godolphin School, as well as Bishop Wordsworth’s and South Wilts grammar schools. There is racing at Salisbury and Wincanton, golf at Highpost, South Wilts and Rushmore, plus fishing on the River Avon and other nearby chalk streams. The countryside surrounding Salisbury offers large unspoilt areas, ideal for walking and riding.
The rear garden is well stocked with mature shrubs and hedges with a central lawn featuring a path leading to the rear. Despite its centre location the abundant greenery makes it feel secluded and it has a ‘secret garden’ feel. There is a small paved patio adjacent to the sitting room for alfresco dining. The current owner rents a car parking space in a nearby car park. Permit parking is available.
