Gateway to high life in Salisbury city centre

A character property next to the historic Cathedral Close gate in Salisbury has been sold.

Property consultancy Myddelton & Major successfully acted as agent to complete the sale of the mixed-use premises on a freehold asking price of £395,000.

The new local owner aims to breathe fresh life into the Grade-II* listed building for residential and commercial use.

Dean Speer, a Partner at Myddelton & Major, said: “This is a character property in a prime position immediately next to the medieval Cathedral Close gate.

“The new owner intends to refurbish the property, which will make it an attractive proposition for residential and commercial tenants alike.

“This is the latest in a number of successful negotiations we have completed recently in the city centre as we see demand for our services continue to rise.”

At number 64 High Street, the property includes a ground floor shop, first floor offices and storage, a second floor two-bedroom flat and courtyard garden.

The gate is the main access to Cathedral Close. The close has been described by Salisbury Cathedral Close Preservation Society as a ‘haven of peace’.
