Fielding House is a Grade II* Listed freehold terraced/attached house in the historic Close (the exquisite walled enclave which surrounds Salisbury Cathedral).
Charlotte Cradock, who lived at 14a The Close, was the inspiration for the character Sophia Western in the Henry Fielding novel, Tom Jones. She was living in the Close when she met him, and they fell in love. She married Fielding in 1734.
The property provides well-balanced accommodation across three floors, beautifully presented and as per the indicative floor plans.
Of particular note is the fine, first floor drawing room and the wonderful walled garden to the south.
There is a southerly terrace with an electrically operated awning, allowing al fresco dining in a charming space with a resplendent rose garden. The garden is walled by the historic boundary wall of The Close, which borders Exeter Street along the eastern side.
