29 St Marks Road is an unspoilt, impressive and appealing semi-detached townhouse, believed to date from the early 1880 s. It is built of red brick elevations beneath a slate tiled roof, providing well proportioned accommodation laid out over four storeys and with delightful, far reaching views over the city and of the Cathedral spire. The property retains a wealth of period features, including single glazed sash windows on the rear elevation, detailed cornicing, ornate plaster ceiling roses, deep skirting boards and a plaster arch with corbels. The long, south facing rear garden is a particular delight, and has been hard landscaped for ease of maintenance, with deep, well planted flower beds.

St Marks Road is convenient for the centre of Salisbury (via a pleasant walk through The Arts Centre grounds) where there is an excellent range of facilities shopping, educational, leisure, cultural as well as a mainline station with trains to London Waterloo (journey time approximately 90 minutes). There are a number of excellent schools also within an easy walk, including both fee-paying and grammar schools. Salisbury has also recently been voted as the best place to live by The Sunday Times.
