Overview

About the property

Unique two bedroom apartment with unparalled views of Salisbury Cathedral

With your own resident's parking bay just seconds from your independent front door, this quirky, attractive apartment offers versatile accommodation over two floors. Entering via a generous lobby area you proceed up a staircase to the first floor where you will find a well sized, comfortable lounge with a beautiful original sash bay window overlooking the Close and Cathedral lawns. A good range of seating, TV and artwork. This leads to a large, light and well equipped modern kitchen/diner with microwave, toaster, kettle, oven and hob, dishwasher, fridge and washing machine, iron and ironing board. Provision has been made for four guests in this area.

Just off the kitchen is a good sized modern bathroom furnished with a bath, shower fitting, wash hand basin and toilet.

The dual aspect master bedroom is delightfully furnished with a double bed, drawers and hanging space plus built in secure cupboard. Seating within the bay window offers the perfect vantage point from which to watch the world go by as you start the day.

The second floor is accessed via a very steep and curving staircase, suitable only for able bodied adults. Here you will find two characterful areas, one small double bedroom with a window overlooking the North Walk and a further generous area which can be used as a dressing or relaxing area.

You will notice the ecclesiastical touches throughout the apartment in keeping with its heritage and location. Church chairs and prayer book stands blend in well with contemporary furnishings offering you a special blend of both worlds.

What makes this apartment unique

Beautiful apartment with a stupendous view

  • 5 of 5

This really is the best location in the city. The large windows in the sitting room and bedrooms look across the cathedral's lawns and you could sit and people watch all day! At night it is still a wonderful view as the cathedral is floodlit. The apartment is spotlessly clean, bright, spacious and well equipped. It is a great base for exploring the city and has its own car parking space outside. I would thoroughly recommend this apartment and hope to visit again.

Clean tidy and lovely decor- just like home from home

  • 4 of 5

Highly recommend this lovely apartment, stayed there for 2nights to celebrate Birthdays, such an amazing location overlooking the cathedral.

So very clean and even Genevieve ( who we met on arrival) left us a basket of local food, daffodils & vouchers for the coffee shop below. We fully recommend a stay at 32 The Close.

Salisbury is ideally situated for trips to the coast, the New Forest National Park, Stonehenge with good rail links to London and the west country. We have the famous Salisbury International Arts Festival running every May and June. A well reputed Playhouse and City Hall, which host many shows. Local countryside fairs run throughout spring to autumn. However, right on your doorstep you have the largest and most lovely Cathedral Close in Britain extending to about 80 acres. Home to beautiful Grade I and II listed houses, two museums, a National Trust property, three tearooms and two restaurants. The magnificent Cathedral just yards away, you can stroll across the lawns to attend nightly Evensong at which our world class choir sing, enjoy the art frequently on display in the Cathedral or spend time in the beautiful Chapter House where the 1215 Magna Carta is displayed, one of only four copies remaining in the world. For more energetic visitors a behind the scenes Tower Tour takes you to the base of the Cathedral's soaring spire, the tallest in the UK. Via the 332 steps taken in easy stages you enter the Cathedral roof spaces where the ancient wood structures and hollow spire with its scaffolding can be observed. The views from the top of the Tower are unparalleled, looking way beyond the city to the surrounding countryside.

Old Sarum the Cathedral's original pre 13th Century home, is just minutes away by car and Stonehenge a 20 minute drive.
