Constables View has arguably one of Salisburys best views of the Cathedral from all of its rear aspects, and a viewing is highly recommended and stands on the site that John Constable is purported to have painted his picture "View of Salisbury" (currently displayed in the Louvre). Conveniently situated towards the end of a cul de sac within reach of the amenities of Salisbury and Harnham this handsome double-fronted home is ideal for a growing family. Detached and well-presented throughout, its easy flowing layout has a hugely sociable feel, while its grand central entrance hall instantly hints at the amount of space this home has to offer. Beautifully light and bright a dual aspect 20ft sitting room provides a lovely amount of space to spend time together as a family. An exposed brick fireplace is an instant focal point, while sliding patio doors lead you out onto the raised terrace, making it simple to step outside and relax in the sun and view the cathedral. Creating a great space to entertain, the adjacent dining room has superbly framed views of Salisbury cathedral and opens once again onto the terrace. An additional study adds to the versatility of this family home.
Fully fitted with classic cabinets and countertops, the well-sized kitchen features an integrated tower oven and hob and easily accommodates additional appliances. Perfectly placed, its double sink is positioned for you to enjoy the cathedral views while you do the washing up and a separate utility room has space for a washing machine. A cloakroom completes the ground floor.
The carved wood banisters of the sweeping staircase lead you to a galleried hallway that opens onto four generously proportioned bedrooms. A large dual aspect master bedroom with an en suite shower room provides a peaceful retreat. Tasteful fitted wardrobes supply a wealth of storage while a wall of sliding doors open onto a private balcony that's perfect for looking out over the treetops and onto the cathedral. The lovely flow of natural light continues in the additional three bedrooms, two of which benefit from fitted storage. Arranged in a sleek white tile setting, the modern suite of the family bathrooms includes a full size bath with overhead shower.
The house is located in the most wonderful setting tucked away on the outskirts of East Harnham on the south side of the famous medieval cathedral city of Salisbury, towards the end of a peaceful cul de sac. Harnham itself has a local shop/post office, primary school and renowned public house the Old Mill, a fine dining pub in an historic converted mill. The Town Path footpath leads across the meadows to the centre of Salisbury and all its excellent facilities: shopping, leisure, cultural and educational, as well as a twice weekly market. Good local schools are numerous and include Salisbury Cathedral School, Chafyn Grove and Godolphin School, as well as Bishop Wordsworth and South Wilts Grammar Schools. TRAIN SERVICES: Salisbury has a mainline station with trains to London Waterloo (journey time approximately 86 minutes).
Set back from the road behind well-maintained lawns, this double-fronted red brick house with its Georgian-style pillared entrance porch gives an elegant first impression. Step out from the ground floor onto a raised patio that's ideally sized for al fresco entertaining. With fantastic views that reach across the city and on once again to the cathedral, the deceptively large rear garden is bordered by magnificently tall fir trees that give ample privacy, while the garden itself has plenty of potential to be landscaped and tiered. The shared driveway and private detached garage have off-road parking space for several vehicles.
The house name of Constables View was used by the vendors, because of the houses location on the hill above Salisbury in the location purported to be where John Constable painted his iconic painting of the Cathedral which now hangs in the Louvre, titled 'View of Salisbury'. The house was built on the site of Field Marshal Sir Archibald Wavell's home who was a celebrated military figure and a former Viceroy of India in the 1940's.
