Property description

118 Firs Road is a detached, three/four bedroom chalet dwelling pleasantly positioned on the outskirts of Firsdown.

Originally a 1950s bungalow, the property has undergone a series of improvements including a front extension and garage extension in the early 1990s followed by a rear extension and first floor conversion in the late 1990s. The resulting accommodation is therefore spacious, versatile and light. There is a long, light entrance hall and an inner hall/study with the staircase leading to the first floor. All rooms are generous in proportion with further potential available to alter and extend.

It may also be sensible to consider further first floor alterations resulting in additional bedroom space. Presently the ground floor offers four reception rooms, a kitchen, a utility room and a bathroom. The first floor offers an enormous master bedroom with a full ensuite bathroom and a second attic room.

Centrally heated via an oil fired boiler to radiators and fully double glazed, the property is sited within a sizeable plot to the front of which is a sweeping drive with parking and access to a substantial garage. The large rear garden is laid predominantly to lawn and fully enclosed with a high degree of privacy.


Location


The semi rural settlement of Firsdown is located some four miles to the north east of Salisbury. The neighbouring vlillages of Pitton and Winterslow offer village stores/post office facilities, village schools and country pubs. The cathedral city of Salisbury offers a more comprehensive range of recreational amenities, shopping facilities including a market each Tuesday and Saturday and a wide range of schooling, both state and private including two grammar schools and a college of further education. Salisbury has a mainline railway station, also stopping at Grateley, serving London, Waterloo and the West Country. Although a rural environment, access to the M3 and M25 is easily obtained via the A303 to the north east and to Southampton via the A36/M27 to the south.


Tenure and services


Tenure: Freehold. Local Authority: Wiltshire Council. Council Tax: Band D - £1,622.46 for year 2017/18. Services: Mains water and electricity are connected. Private drainage. Oil fired central heating. Windows: Fully double glazed.


Directions


From the city of Salisbury proceed in a north easterly direction along the A30 London Road in the direction of Andover. After approximately 3.5 miles turn right into Firs Road just before the Hilltop Grill and Diner, signposted Firsdown. Proceed down the hill and 118 Firs Road can be found after a short distance on the left hand side clearly identified by the Baxters For sale sign.
