Bedrooms: 4
Located at the end of a short residential road, Manitou is an impressive Victorian family house which enjoys a semi-rural outlook and, yet, is still within easy (walking) access of the city centre, the railway station and highly regarded schools.

This characterful family home is offered for sale in quite exceptional condition and offers generous, well-planned accommodation which is both fully double glazed and centrally heated via a mains gas fired boiler to radiators. The present owners have clearly invested in their home and given consideration to the functionality of the living space by creating a lovely central kitchen/breakfast room right in the heart of the house from which access is gained to the garden, a cosy snug with working fireplace and a large lounge/dining room also with an attractive working fireplace and full height bay window. This room can be left open to the kitchen or separated by fully opening cathedral hinged panelled doors. Off the snug is a large useful utility room/boot room (previously in use as a garden room) with cloakroom and access to the garden and patio/seating area.

The first floor is equally impressive; there is a large double aspect main bedroom with an extensive range of bespoke wardrobe furniture, a second double bedroom, nursery/single bedroom or study and a generous family bathroom. A second staircase off the landing leads up to an excellent double bedroom with vaulted ceiling, wardrobes, excellent full-length eaves storage and a super view (shared with the main bedroom), along the Avon Valley towards Old Sarum.

To the front is a small gravelled garden which is enclosed with low wall and picket fence with gate and mosaic tiled path leading to the entrance. Side access leads through to a good size garden with a sunny patio/seating area off the kitchen. Steps lead up to two further areas of garden which are well maintained and completely enclosed. There are a number of raised planters and flower beds, a large area of artificial lawn and an upper level with an additional patio/seating area and a large garden shed. Parking is available within the road.

Prospective buyers should note that planning consent has previously been granted for a rear extension which if reinstated and implemented would only serve to further enhance this fine family home which should be viewed internally to fully appreciate it's character, comfort and styling.

Kensington Road is located within walking distance of the city centre and railway station on the north western side of the city just outside the ring road. The medieval cathedral city has an excellent range of social, educational, cultural and leisure amenities with extensive shopping facilities and a thriving twice weekly market. Five Rivers Health and Wellbeing centre, tennis clubs, recreation grounds and walks beside the river Avon are nearby and the theatre, arts centre and cinema are all located in the centre. There are schools for all ages, both private and state, within and outside the city boundary. The property is near to a regular bus route into the centre. Salisbury has excellent road links to London and the West Country (A303/M3) and a mainline railway station serving London Waterloo, (journey time 90 minutes) and the West Country.
