Built in 1926 of red brick and rendered elevations beneath a clay tiled roof, No. 129 Harnham Road is an attractive and substantial, period, semi-detached house, providing flexible and well-proportioned accommodation. Internally the property retains the original doors and also benefits from a detached double garage, with adjoining driveway, providing off-road parking for three vehicles. It also has a good sized, south-facing, rear garden which has been well designed and planted with a greenhouse, a wildflower meadow and vegetable patches.

Within Harnham itself, there is a good range of day to day facilities including a post office with convenience store, two hotels with restaurants, tennis courts, an infant school, a junior school and several churches, clubs and societies. There is a pleasant walk through the world-famous Cathedral Close to the centre of the city which hosts a good range of educational, leisure, cultural and shopping facilities and also has the mainline station with London Waterloo (journey time approximately 90 minutes). Salisbury also supports a well thought of Playhouse and twice weekly charter market and there are regular bus services from Harnham to both the city centre and nearby Salisbury District Hospital. The house is also within walking distance of the hospital, Cathedral and various schools. Salisbury has also recently been voted as the best place to live by The Sunday Times.
