Three storey town house in the Cathedral Close.

About this property

  • In the heart of the sought-after Cathedral Close, this is a rare opportunity to acquire a four bedroom town house in the quiet Sarum St Michael enclave.

    Converted from a former teacher training college in the late 1970s, this particularly secluded corner of the Close has the added bonus of being a little tucked away and private.

    Set over three storeys, the house has versatile accommodation, including an entrance hall, kitchen and approx. 20-foot sitting/dining room on the ground floor, with south-facing windows overlooking a courtyard garden and the historic Medieval Hall.

    The first and second floors have two bedrooms and a bathroom on each.

    The property provides excellent potential for modernisation and improvement.


    The property enjoys three acres of communal riverside gardens, with fishing rights. The gardens look, across the river avon, to the water meadows in one direction and back towards the stately Cathedral spire in the other.

    There is residents parking.

I love the idea of being so near the Cathedral and the peace and tranquility of The Close.
