Salisbury, somewhere properly rural

With autumn in its glorious full flow, I am working in the office and polishing up my picking up skills when out on my walks.  It's our local hunt meet tomorrow, but we are working in the office and with my colouring, it wouldn't be fair on the hounds anyway!

Our November has been busy, with some great buyers snapping up the last of this season's offerings. One pattern we have seen emerging this autumn is the shift away from just the London buyer to purchasers moving from the greener areas of the home counties, who have seen these settings become more commuter belt than green belt.  These buyers tell us they are seeking somewhere gentler, with a mix of countryside and community - somewhere that is properly rural. 

Salisbury is the epicentre of the five river valleys which converge upon the city.  Its ancient streets are home to thriving idependent shops, eateries and businesses, which exist alongside those of the high street.  Its schools range from grammars for both boys and girls to some wonderful independent and state schools alike.  Markets fill the square, with twice weekly traditional Wiltshire fare and an eclectic mix of Continental, vintage and international foods at other times.  The cultural calender in the city is as vibrant, busy and wonderful as the sights and smells that I experience walking through the Charter Market on Tuesdays and Saturdays!  It also has wonderful open spaces, and a number of parks, for which I am an expert!

2015 has been busy from the get go.  I have entertained clients, meeting and greeting the many visitors to our lovely offices.  I also entertain their children, particularly when they become bored on a long country house viewing.  Our market is a mix of buyers downsizing to our level, rural city to families moving to this lovely part of Wiltshire and the life it offers.

The New Year looks set to be an exciting one for both the city and its bouyant property market.  Do feel free to come in to our offices on Milford Street to see me.  There is always much to talk about in our bustling 'small' city.
