Dating from the 1840s, 87 Exeter Street is a desirable Grade II Listed 3 storey townhouse with a walled sunny garden and incredible views towards Salisbury Cathedral and Bishop Wordsworth school.

This fine townhouse offers spacious and flexible accommodation with an impressive central staircase open from the ground floor through to the second floor with an original coloured stained-glass skylight.
