Believed to date back to 1828, Merivale is an appealing period house, the front of which gives few clues as to the amount of versatile living accommodation within. Internally the bedrooms are of good proportions and it is stylishly presented with numerous period details throughout; fireplaces, exposed wooden floorboards, deep skirting boards etc. During our clients time here they have renewed the roof and recently installed a new boiler, along with making decorative improvements.

Merivale is situated on The Green, part of the original part of the village of Laverstock. Over time Laverstock has merged to become a suburb of Salisbury and now offers many facilities including a primary school, three secondary schools, a public house, convenience store, social club and takeaways. Nearby are Laverstock Downs which provide good opportunities for walking and outdoor pursuits and there is a regular bus service through Laverstock to the city centre. Peter Symonds College also provides a bus link with a bus stop being located on The Green. Salisbury offers a wider range of shopping, educational, leisure and cultural facilities, with a mainline station with trains to London Waterloo, journey time approximately 90 minutes. Salisbury was recently voted as the best place to live by The Sunday Times and also supports a well-thought of Playhouse and twice weekly Charter market.
