Wellington, Lower Road
Property SummaryWellington is a most interesting and deceptively large home with great charm and character. The property is made up partly of a cob cottage c1850 as well as a 1920’s element with more recent changes and additions. The result is a very adaptable four double bedroom home. Accommodation comprises entrance hall, two reception rooms, 5.45m kitchen /dining room, 5.2m double glazed conservatory with bi-fold doors, utility room, ground floor shower room, four double bedrooms and first floor bathroom. Outside Wellington has attractive gardens, predominantly on two sides with a Southerly and Westerly aspect with a range of ‘areas’ and outbuildings. Wellington also has a single garage and useful additional area of land (accessed via Locks Lane). Situated in the village of Quidhampton the house has some lovely countryside views and walks yet provides easy access to Salisbury city centre, railway station and Wilton. The village has a popular public house, village hall and play park with popular schools close by.
