The property is situated in a quiet and exclusive cul-de-sac in the popular residential area of Laverstock with good local shops and amenities on the doorstep. It is only a short trip by car or bus into the City centre and the popularity of the area is further enhanced by the fact that many of Salisbury's top state and private secondary schools are very close by. Salisbury's popularity owes a lot to its wide selection of schools, which includes boys and girls grammar schools, The Cathedral School, Godolphin and Chafyn Grove. The City also has a busy and attractive central shopping area around the market square, as well as the Playhouse Theatre, a Cinema and Arts Centre and of course the iconic Cathedral. Apart from being conveniently close to the centre of town another advantage of the Laverstock area is that within minutes you can be out and about enjoying the lovely countryside that surrounds Salisbury, either along the footpaths and bridle ways up onto Laverstock Down or walking along the river bank in either direction. Good communication links from Salisbury make the area popular with those who commute or travel regularly, the main line railway station has fast regular trains to London Waterloo and the West Country, and the A36 and A30/A303 are close by. Heathrow and Southampton airports are also reasonably easily accessible.
From our office in Castle Street proceed away from the City Centre and at the roundabout turn right on to the ring road. At the next roundabout take the third exit forward into Wain-a-long Road and continue to the bottom of the hill. Turn right at the T-junction and then immediately left at the mini roundabout and proceed under the railway bridge. Continue into Church Road and then turn left in to Riverside Close, the property can then be found almost straight ahead.
