1 West View is an imposing and attractive, Victorian house that has been in the same ownership for over twenty years, a testament to the well-presented, proportioned and versatile accommodation that the property provides, laid out over four floors. There are a number of period features remaining including picture rails, dado rails, deep skirting boards, original fireplaces and original doors. The property also benefits from a driveway providing off-road parking, an integral garage, an attractive west-facing rear garden and far reaching, appealing views of the Cathedral spire and across the city centre. It is felt that an integral annexe could easily be created, if required, subject to the necessary consents.

Elm Grove is a quiet no-through road located at the top of Milford Hill, convenient for the city centre and within an easy walk of all of the excellent range of facilities shopping, educational, cultural and leisure on offer in Salisbury. Salisbury also benefits from a well thought of Playhouse, twice weekly charter market and mainline station with trains to London Waterloo (journey time approximately 90 minutes); and has recently been voted as the best place to live by The Sunday Times.
