2 De Vaux Place is a fine period property that dates from the 19th Century and forms part of a Grade II Listed terrace. The property retains much of its period elegance while also displaying attractive, stylish décor throughout. This row of six Regency townhouses was built on the site of De Vaux College in 1822 by John Peniston, a local architect, who also lived in the terrace. 2 De Vaux Place was sympathetically restored to an exacting standard in 1988 by a classical architect with a Ph.D in Architectural History, who lived in the property for 10 years.

On the ground floor, the main reception room is the well-presented drawing room, with its open fireplace and French doors opening onto the south-facing garden. There is also a dining room with a fireplace, a utility/laundry area and a kitchen/breakfast room with terracotta floor tiles, lime washed oak units, a butlers sink and integrated appliances including a gas hob.

There are five double bedrooms arranged over the first, second and third floors, all of which are well-proportioned doubles. The principal bedroom is located on the first floor with impressive views from the two large sash windows. The adjacent bedroom is currently being used as a dressing room to the principal bedroom, but could be a fifth bedroom if needed. The first and second floors have two bedrooms each, three of which have fitted cupboards. There are three family bathrooms, each functioning the bedrooms on the respective floors. The bedroom on the top floor offers ample storage, both under the eaves and also in the large walk-in wardrobe. This would make the perfect space for a self-contained guest suite. A wonderful study has been created on the third mezzanine, complete with bookshelves, storage cupboards and the best view in the house of the Cathedral spire.

The property is situated in a highly sought-after location, on the edge of the beautiful grounds of Salisbury's magnificent Cathedral and just moments from the city centre. With its historic centre and famous cathedral, Salisbury is a delightful city. There is a superb choice of shopping and leisure facilities, plus a fine selection of pubs, cafés and restaurants. The area boasts several outstanding primary schools, plus the renowned Bishop Wordsworth's and South Wilts Grammar schools, for Boys and Girls respectively. Salisbury's mainline station offers regular services to London Waterloo, taking approximately 90 minutes. The M27 (Jct 2) is 15 miles away.

At the front of the property, a door opens onto the paved York stone courtyard area, with doors leading to the kitchen and utility room. There is parking available along De Vaux Place, with two resident permits. To the rear there is a south facing, low maintenance courtyard garden with paved terracing and borders of flowerbeds, shrubs and established hedgerow offering privacy and seclusion.

As the property lies within the 'Liberty of The Close' it entitles owners to use the Cathedral for weddings, christenings and funerals.
