The Old Bakery in Bedwin Street is unique. A stunning Georgian town house, Listed Grade II, it offers elegant and surprisingly spacious accommodation which is beautifully presented throughout to complement the character of the building.
Offering a wonderful opportunity to enjoy a vibrant City lifestyle, the house is situated in a sought after and historic quarter of Salisbury. Right in the centre, but tucked away, surrounded by other period houses, it makes a perfect home for those who wish to enjoy the convenience of town dwelling and the many restaurants, artisan cafes, bars and fine shopping that the City has to offer.
Unusually for a City centre property, the Old Bakery has an extensive walled garden at the rear and this, coupled with a completely separate Studio building which has plumbing and power connected, makes the property a very attractive proposition indeed.
A perfect family home, the generous reception space is also ideal for entertaining, with a pleasing layout and well proportioned rooms lending themselves to large social gatherings and busy family life. The substantial, separate Studio, in the courtyard, offers more flexibility to the accommodation and an excellent amount of additional space either for guests, as a work from home environment, gym or substantial hobbies/storage space and, with power and plumbing already in place, it is ready to be pressed into service for all manner of uses.
From entering the property, the character is evident and the care taken to preserve the period features during extensive renovation has paid dividends; creating a home that is full of warmth and interest with exposed brick, original beams and fireplaces. Presentation has been carefully thought out, combining neutral decoration with modern touches such as shutters, tiled floors and bespoke fitted furniture/ storage to ensure that the house is light, fresh and easy to run.
The Drawing Room is particularly inviting, with deep windows to the front that flood the room with natural daylight and creating a lovely room which is both elegant and welcoming. The Dining Room is of equally good size and has an impressive fireplace and the inner hallway, fitted with bespoke storage leads through to the Kitchen/Breakfast Room.
Well fitted with a comprehensive range of units and equipped with range style cooker and integrated dishwasher, the kitchen also offers space for a table and chairs and has a stable door to the garden. A separate Utility Room/Cloakroom offers further appliance space.
On the first floor, the Master Bedroom is of very good size and has the benefit of an en suite shower room, fitted storage and remote controlled fitted blinds to the windows. The Guest Suite includes an en-suite shower room and there is a third bedroom and separate bathroom on this floor.
On the second floor there are two further bedrooms and a cloakroom.
The outside space at the Old Bakery is extensive, walled and private, it is almost like a 'secret garden' and totally unexpected in such a central location.
A large paved courtyard provides the perfect spot to dine or entertain al fresco, the hard landscaping making it useable throughout the seasons, and careful planting including herbaceous plants and evergreen shrubs ensures there is colour and interest in both summer and winter.
Beyond the Studio there is a large formal garden, laid mainly to lawn with flower borders, shrubs and many trees that add height and maturity to the plot. The garden is a bonus and offers ample space and opportunity for keen gardeners to enjoy their hobby, gives room to kick a ball, erect swings and trampolines of just relax in your private 'green haven' in the centre of the City.
