A tale of two cities

It is hard to believe it is the first of October in Salisbury, with sunlight flooding into our office and people wearing short sleeves. Yesterday saw the end of the driest September on record and walking through the market, if felt more like being on the continent than this most English of cities. The Close is another open space, in which I was fortunate to enjoy the weather when walking through our lovely level city. It really is every bit as magical as each lyrical waxing suggests. We recently launched 64 High Street, which sits on the other side of the close gate. A rare opportunity to create an outstanding townhouse, right next to the Close Gate leading to the famous Cathedral Close in the heart of the beautiful city of Salisbury. Number 64 High Street is a Grade II* listed period project with outstanding potential to become a really special town house. Currently unoccupied, subject to the necessary planning consents, the aim is to retain a self contained ground floor shop with its own front door, wc and kitchenette, separated from the rest of the building which would become an elegant, light filled and spacious home with an attractive courtyard garden. Guide price £395,000. Salisbury is as bustling as it is friendly and the quiet of its green spaces coexist with the commerce and culture that has long been a draw for the city between London and and the West Country. 64 High Street could combine a live: work property, which when renovated, could be as modern a use of the building as it is traditional. The history of the place is intoxicating and impossible not to be touched by, as the next owner makes their own chapter in the city. The last time the property was sold was over seventy years ago. There are super southerly views from upstairs at the rear of the property over the rooftops to Salisbury Cathedral with its spire, the tallest in the UK at 404ft, the second tallest medieval spire in Europe. There are also attractive views across the formal garden to the rear of the Grade 1 listed Queen Anne style Monpesson House which belongs to the National Trust. Having recently renovated a Grade II Listed building myself in the city, it was enormously satisfying to breath new life into an ancient property. Times change and the way we shop is different from the days before the internet. But our love of Salisbury, its history and charming mix of tradition with modernity, it seems, is as alive today as it was when many of these ancient buildings were built.
