Exeter property market: Look beyond the touchline

Published Oct 6, 2015 – 2 mins read

Excitement abounds as Exeter is a host city for the 2015 Rugby World Cup. Teams from around the world have arrived in the UK to compete in the Rugby World Cup 2015, which started on the 18th September, and one of the host venues is Sandy Park, home of the Exeter Chiefs Rugby Club. With Exeter currently in second place in the Aviva Premiership League and with three Exeter Chiefs players now in the England squad for the forthcoming World Cup, Exeter is “riding high” in the rugby world and also as a great place to live.

Step inside Exeter’s 2,000 year old Roman walls and enjoy the cosmopolitan High Street shops and restaurants of Princesshay, the historic Cathedral Green or cobbled Gandy Street.

Feel the holiday vibes at one of the outdoor cafes and galleries on the historical Quayside or take a leisurely stroll along the banks of the River Exe and the Exeter Canal

From the tree lined streets boasting Victorian and Georgian villas of fashionable St Leonards, to the trendy Pennsylvania district with its close proximity to the highly rated Exeter University, with each only ten minutes on foot from the city centre. Apartments in the trendy Exeter Quay area, to the Dutch influenced houses in sought after Topsham on the Exe estuary, the variation of property and location choices make it not so surprising that so many people are now calling Exeter home, a historical city with its modern and trendy image.

With its mix of modern culture and historic locations of interest alongside the diverse range of property, Exeter is the perfect place. Surrounded by rolling hills, the pleasant wooded valleys of the Devonshire countryside and close to the beautiful beaches of the English Riviera, the demand for property in Exeter is rising fast and Exeter is fast becoming “the place to live” in the South West of England.

The Exeter area has something for everyone. Whether you want to live in the popular cultural city of Exeter, would prefer to live in a nearby country town such as Honiton, Crediton, Cullumpton or Kingsteignton, or by the coast in one of the seaside towns of Sidmouth, Budleigh Salterton, Exmouth or Dawlish, or live close to the beautiful and rugged Dartmoor National Park in Bovey Tracey.
