Property description

Dating from the 1840s, 87 Exeter Street is a desirable Grade II Listed 3 storey townhouse with a walled sunny garden and incredible views towards Salisbury Cathedral and Bishop Wordsworth school.

This fine townhouse offers spacious and flexible accommodation with an impressive central staircase open from the ground floor through to the second floor with an original coloured stained-glass skylight. The ground floor accommodation comprises a long reception hall, sitting room, farmhouse-style open kitchen with adjoining pantry/preparation room (all with newly laid slate flooring) giving access to a utility/study and ground floor cloakroom; there is access from the kitchen and pantry/preparation area into a lovely sunny garden.

The first floor comprises an impressive main bedroom which, alternatively, could make an elegant drawing room, a double bedroom and recently re-modelled shower room.  On the top floor, off a large light landing, are two excellent double bedrooms and a re-modelled family bathroom.
87 Exeter Street is immensely characterful and contains many original features including 5 fireplaces, timber panel doors (mostly original) and sash windows (some of which have been rebuilt), a period skylight, architraves, mouldings and several original generous storage cupboards.  The current owner undertook complete refurbishment of the entire property during 2019/20 which included re-wiring, new central heating, new boiler and complete re-building of the rear single-story extension to contemporary standards.
A particular feature of this lovely family home is the city centre walled garden,  which is generous in size with many mature shrubs and flower beds, slate patio, a seating area and an original garden store/potting shed, which does need attention.
