Firsdown, Salisbury

Guide price

Bedrooms: 4
An individual detached bungalow built during the 1960s, positioned at the head of a small residential close, within a plot exceeding half an acre and occupied until recently by the original owner.

A rare find indeed, 16 Firs Close offers potential buyers an opportunity to create a truly unique property either with the addition of a creative extension (subject to obtaining the necessary consents) or by retaining and updating the existing dwelling. The bungalow sits almost central within its plot with gardens extending to three sides and a central gated drive with excellent parking.

The current layout offers a little over 1200 sq. ft of living space with glazed entrance porch, a wide central reception hall leading to a large double aspect sitting room (with working fireplace), a generous kitchen/breakfast room, two double bedrooms and a family bathroom. The light and airy accommodation is spacious, fitted throughout with double glazing and centrally heated via an oil fired boiler to radiators. There is a further combined 1485 sq ft of space available within the loft over the bungalow and the garage.

The bungalow sits at the head of a small close with outstanding views over adjoining countryside and farmland. The gardens are mainly laid to lawn with a variety of shrubs and flower beds. There is also an imposing 70' metal frame greenhouse.

LOCATION: The semi-rural settlement of Firsdown is located some five miles to the east of Salisbury.
