Built in the 1930 s in the arts and craft style, 95 St Marks Avenue is a spacious, light and airy, detached house which has the potential to be much improved by a purchaser, and currently retains much of the original charm, which has been mixed with more modern conveniences. In recent years the property has been re-wired and re-plumbed, new oak doors and gas fired central heating have been installed but there is scope for further updating, if required. Many of the original period features remain, such as the windows and doors on the rear elevation, fireplaces, picture rails and the original staircase. To the rear of the property there is a very large garden (the whole plot measures about 0.3 of an acre) and planning permission has previously been granted for a substantial further extension, although this is now lapsed.

St Marks Avenue is a wide residential road on the northern edge of the cathedral city of Salisbury which has a good range of facilities nearby including Marks & Spencer Simply Food, a children s nursery and Parkwood Leisure on the London Road. The centre of Salisbury is close at hand with its excellent range of shopping, educational, leisure and cultural facilities, as well as the twice weekly market and mainline station with trains to London Waterloo, journey time approximately 90 minutes. The area is also served with a wide range of both private and state schools. Salisbury has also recently been voted by The Sunday Times as the best place to live.
