Camera Principalis is a unique and very attractive residence which forms part of a Grade II* listed building in the heart of Cathedral Close. Technically, it is a maisonette with an imposing entrance at ground floor and with well-proportioned and extremely spacious accommodation at first and second floor level. Throughout the property, there are numerous period details, as would be expected given that parts of the building date back to 1220.

From the ground floor, an impressive stone spiral staircase leads to the first floor reception rooms, which include a wonderful double height drawing room with a very large picture window that faces west and has lovely views over the communal grounds and of the River Avon. Adjoining the drawing room is a particularly atmospheric sitting room, which also has a large bay window overlooking the grounds. On the second floor, there are four bedrooms, three of which are ensuite, and a study.

Cathedral Close is an historic location with numerous attractive period buildings. It is a short level walk from The Close into the centre of the city, where there is an excellent range of shopping, educational, leisure and cultural facilities, as well as a main-line railway station with regular trains to London Waterloo. Salisbury also supports a well-regarded theatre and a twice weekly market.

Camera Principalis and other Old Deanery properties share the delightful communal gardens and grounds of Sarum St Michael. These gardens, totalling approximately three acres, run down to the River Avon, where Old Deanery residents have fishing rights. Camera Principalis benefits from residents parking for two cars and there are ample additional parking spaces for visitors.
