Full description

Tenure: Freehold

1 YARD COURT off East Street Warminster is part of the former Yard House, a substantial mid-19th century town house which comes with an interesting history, and a Town Council Blue Plaque records that it may be the original site of Warminster Scudamore manor house. In 1664 the property was acquired by Edward Halliday of the wealthy Halliday family and rebuilt in 1771 and again in 1891 before being leased in 1906 to Sisters of the Ursuline Order who set up the original St Georges Catholic School and Chapel. The property has most attractive Ashlar stone elevations under a slate roof and in 1987 was imaginatively sub-divided into 4 individual homes resulting in a successful blend of old and new and although needing now in need of updating Number 1 offers spacious accommodation with lofty well proportioned rooms which benefit from Gas-fired central heating to radiators and newly installed sealed unit double glazed sash windows carefully chosen to match the originals they replaced. This is a rare opportunity to acquire a spacious home in a secure gated courtyard community just moments from all amenities and is equally suited for family occupation or someone retired wishing to live within yards of the town centre, hence the Agents recommend an early accompanied internal inspection in order to avoid disappointment.

LOCATION Yard Court is a small, exclusive enclave of just 6 properties approached via a remotely operated gated entrance, tucked away from passing traffic off East Street and very conveniently located within a very short level walking distance from the centre of Warminster with its excellent shopping facilities - 3 supermarkets including a nearby Waitrose store and a wide range of other amenities which include a theatre and library, hospital and clinics, Golf Course and railway station with regular rail services to Salisbury, and then direct to London Waterloo, and to Bath with a direct line on to South Wales. St Georges Catholic Church and St Johns C of E Church are nearby as is schooling, including both New Close Primary and St Johns Primary together with Kingdown Community College and its adjacent Leisure Centre, and the Warminster co-educational boarding and day Public School. Other main centres in the area including Frome, Westbury, Trowbridge, Bath and Salisbury are within a comfortable driving distance as are the various Salisbury Plain military establishments whilst the A36, A350 and A303 trunk routes provide swift road communications throughout the West Country and further afield to London via the A303/M3. Bristol and Southampton airports are just over an hour by road.
