As one of the oldest established areas of the city, the original settlement of Milford Hill – often referred to as ‘Old Town’ – predates the creation of modern Salisbury and has transformed several times over the years .
Most notably, this is where Milford Hill House was built, housing prestigious families before becoming a guest house in later years and eventually achieving Grade II status. Much like today, Milford Hill was seen as a suburban retreat that had all the benefits of the adjacent town center within walking distance.
Samantha Luckhurst, from Savills’ residential development sales team in Salisbury, said: “We have put a lot of thought into the development of Howarth Park to ensure it will be a great place to live, with contemporary homes featuring high ceilings and with an abundance of natural light. . The properties guarantee space and privacy, while the setting of the estate means that society is on your doorstep, should you wish.
“So far buyers here have been attracted not only by the excellent specification but also by the location, which provides easy access to the amenities Salisbury has to offer as well as Southampton Airport. The beautiful buildings, gorgeous grounds, and majestic cedar of Lebanon evoke memories of grandeur and are akin to something out of a Jane Austen novel. The peace of mind that an on-site property manager provides also allows downsizers to enjoy a stylish, secure and independent lifestyle.
