THE HISTORY

Cathedral View, originally home to Wippell ecclesiastical suppliers in the 1880’s, is a Grade II listed building with impressive original Gothic Revival features.

Exeter Cathedral is one of the oldest and arguably one of the most beautiful in England, dating back to the early 12th century. The Norman Cathedral, which was replaced from 1270 – 1340, forms the base for the beautiful Gothic building we see today, with its famous west front and elegant nave.

The city itself dates back more than 2,000 years and once served as a centre of trade for the Roman Empire. The old city walls can still be found in nearby Southernhay, forming part of the City Wall Trail, one of many historical walks around Exeter.

The city also shines in the education arena with both Exeter University and Exeter College gaining national recognition as stand out educational providers.

A dedicated restaurant quarter on Queen Street has brought new restaurants to the city, with rooftop bars, DJs and live music, making this a firm favourite for foodies.

Exeter is also one of the region’s favourite places for shopping. Princesshay offers an array of high-street brands, with smaller independents in the Castle Quarter of the city, Gandy Street and Fore Street.

THE LIFESTYLE

Exeter is a perfectly positioned city – it is easy to see why the Sunday Times voted it one of the best places to live in the UK. Two national parks, Dartmoor and Exmoor, are within easy reach, as well as stunning coastlines and rolling countryside.

An abundance of culture awaits in Exeter. Art-house films are shown at the Picture House and Exeter Phoenix provides a full and varied calendar of events. Exeter also boasts various art galleries and a nationally acclaimed museum, Royal Albert Memorial Museum.

Hosting the Rugby World Cup in 2015 put the city firmly on the map for sporting excellence. Exeter’s rugby team, the Exeter Chiefs, triumphed in the Premiership and continue to strive for excellence.

THE LUXURY

Opulent, exclusive and elegant, from the moment you enter you will be struck by the high quality interiors. Classic design meets with contemporary living in these sumptuous residences. The original stained glass in the stairway, double height ceilings and period features provide a window into the past.

Once inside your apartment there is every modern luxury. The free-flowing reception rooms make the most of the stunning views. Sleek kitchens with integrated appliances, quartz worktops and feature lights are a great space for entertaining.

Oak hand-finished internal doors with contemporary ironmongery divide the spaces, with satinwood skirtings, architraves and window boards. Apartments also benefit from contemporary LED downlighting, secondary glazing and smart home technology.
