Bouverie Cottage belies its name. Far from being a cottage, No.30 Bouverie Avenue is in fact a large, family house set in a generous and private garden, within one of the most sought after locations in Salisbury.
Set on the southern outskirts of the City, Bouverie Avenue has long been regarded as one of the best addresses. An extremely pleasant residential area made up of individual houses of all ages and styles, located within easy reach of the City Centre.
Bouverie Cottage is particularly well situated, tucked away and hidden from view, sitting privately within its mature garden and having the benefit of three garages in addition to ample private parking.
Arranged over three floors, the accommodation is extensive and well planned with a beautifully light and airy open plan layout. Neutral décor combined with oak joinery, tiled and timber floors for a contemporary feel, is complemented by luxury bathrooms and underfloor heating.
From the entrance porch, the solid oak door opens to the entrance hall, with cloakroom under the stairs. The Kitchen is well fitted with a comprehensive range of units under solid wood work surfaces, including a breakfast area and equipped with a range style cooker.
The reception space is superb, extensive and open plan, perfect for family life and large scale entertaining. Of split level design, the accommodation is laid out to provide a large dining area with bay window overlooking the front garden, whilst a generous conservatory at the rear makes the most of the views over the back garden. The living and dining rooms feature discrete in-wall/ceiling speakers which can be linked to Sonos and Bose devices.
Steps, with attractive natural wood and chrome banister, lead down into the Sitting Room, which, with three sets of doors opening to the garden, is a wonderfully light place to relax and with the benefit of a woodburning stove, is equally inviting on colder days.
On the first floor there are four double bedrooms, two of which have en-suite shower rooms and there is a well fitted family bathroom.
On the second floor, the Master Suite is outstanding, a fantastic space, with a triple aspect bedroom, running the depth of the house and with huge windows allowing light to flood in; including a seating area, walk-in dressing room and eaves storage and a superb, luxury bathroom with walk-in shower and free standing bath.
In addition to all this, Bouverie Cottage boasts an Attic Comms Room, from which the telephone, alarms, tv and music signals can be controlled throughout the property.
The property also benefits from recent re-wiring (2010) and new boiler installation (2017), which sets it aside from older properties on Bouverive Avenue South.
To the front of the house, there is plenty of private parking and a detached double garage with loft storage and light and power connected. There is also a separate garage which is currently used an office, again with private parking to the front.
The Garden is generous and mature, with shrubs creating excellent privacy to the front and the large rear garden is also pleasantly private. The garden is arranged to make the most of the plot, with an area of lawn and a sunken seating terrace, ideal for entertaining, along with a separate play area and kitchen garden area with greenhouse.
Bouverie Avenue is set on the southern fringe of Salisbury in the popular area of Harnham and has very easy access to the City Centre with its excellent shopping, entertainment and educational amenities. There is also a good range of local amenities including school, recreation ground, shop and pub. Salisbury is an important cultural and commercial centre for the area and has a main line station for London Waterloo. There are a number of state and private schools in the area and the surrounding countryside is renowned for its natural beauty.
