On the ground floor is an entrance lobby, hall, shower room, utility room and a sizeable bedroom from which sliding doors open into an enclosed courtyard bounded by the City Wall. This bedroom is adaptable and can be arranged either as an en-suite bedroom, an additional living space or a study/workspace. On the first floor are two double bedrooms, one en-suite, and a family bathroom. On the top floor is an open-plan kitchen/dining/living room with a vaulted ceiling, Juliet balcony, window seats, and French doors opening onto a balcony leading down to a sun terrace with panoramic views out over the City Wall, Customs House, Quay and River Exe to the south and westward to the Haldon Hills. Outside, the property benefits from one off-street parking space, courtyard, balcony and sun terrace.


The Development

Francis Louis are excited to offer For Sale four fantastic freehold properties forming the Quay Hill and Chapel development situated within Exeter’s beautiful historic City Centre and Quayside. The site abuts the Roman and Medieval City Wall behind the Customs House on the Quay. Two houses are new-build and two are conversions. All are energy efficient, adaptable, low maintenance homes that focus on delivering comfort within a healthy internal environment. Layered into the hillside where several routes between the City and the Quay converge, the development is a notable feature in the urban landscape that frames the main entrance to the Quay. All houses enjoy panoramic views over the Quay, River Exe and Haldon Hills. The houses are also an added focal point in the views along the Exe river valley towards the City, Cathedral and St Leonard’s church.

About the site, its history and amenities

The site is located on the hillside, known as Quay Hill, just behind the Customs House and Quay. The Roman and Medieval City Wall forms the southern boundary of the development and what makes the site so special is the marriage between its historic setting and the modern design of the four properties. The elevated position of the development affords each house fantastic panoramic views over the Quay and River Exe towards Exmouth to the south and Haldon Hills to the west. Being south-facing on rising ground, the site enjoys good daylighting from sunrise to sunset, and sheltered behind the Customs House and City Wall the terraces and courtyard gardens will feel almost Mediterranean. Two semi-detached new-build houses are situated on the lower level of the site which was originally part of the City’s barbican. After the Civil War, the City Fathers split the barbican into leasehold plots. This site was Barbican Plot 19 and, over the following two centuries, was inhabited by a clay pipe maker, an arris maker (carver) and a fishmonger amongst others. Those buildings were demolished in the late 1800’s. Two semi-detached Chapel conversions are situated on the higher level which was originally the site of the Tabernacle Chapel built in 1769 by the Reverend Henry Tanner to serve Exeter’s West Quarter. In the 1890’s the kite-shaped Chapel fell into disrepair and was demolished. In 1902 the Chapel was rebuilt and is now converted into two houses. The site’s City Centre and Quayside location with easily accessible parking and transport links, offers a wealth of lifestyle opportunities with shopping, dining, cultural, leisure, sports activities and schools only a few minutes walkaway. It is a convenient and desirable location.

About the properties

Each house is designed to make the most of its individual position with regard to orientation and historic features. They are finished to a high standard throughout and examples of materials are available to view. Each property provides good storage and adaptable accommodation. In addition to off-street parking, and on-street residents’ parking, residents can purchase season tickets from the City Council that cover both the nearby Cathedral and Quay car park as well as other car parks in central Exeter. Together with the Chapel Cottages, they form a small community of four characterful homes.
