What do you think of first when Devon pops into your head?
Beaches along a rugged coastline?
Perhaps miles and miles of green, open space?
Or the great transport links on road, rail and in the air?
Exeter offers access to three Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty, as well as the Devon coastline and those superb transport links.
The houses for sale in Exeter are pretty special too, and we’ve selected five of the best on the market right now…
Homes for sale in Exeter
As well as great properties, from new-builds to Georgian and Victorian period homes, buyers in Exeter can find real value for their money.
Exeter’s popular terraced homes averaged just over £250,000 in the past 12 months, according to Rightmove data, while larger, semi-detached properties also came in under £300,000 at £284,944 on average.
Exeter’s average property price of £281,750, meanwhile, means plenty of options for buyers on various budgets.
Flats for sale in Exeter
Many young professionals seek value in Exeter alongside the city’s transport links.
This studio flat in the city centre is located close to both Exeter St Davids station and Exeter Central.
Services from St Davids to Temple Meads take just under an hour, meaning Exeter is an attractive option for those working in Bristol.
The flat itself could also work as a sound investment, with a potential rental yield of 5.5% and demand for properties such as this from city centre renters.
Exeter’s road links, thanks to the M5 motorway, are as strong as the city’s rail services and this one-bedroom flat east of the city centre in St Loyes provides superb access for car commuters.
The motorway runs north to Taunton and Bridgwater and on to Weston-super-Mare and Bristol, meaning great options for buyers who work in those areas.
The flat is spacious but could use some modernisation. At £120,000, however, there is scope to add value, while the property may also appeal to an investor with a projected rental yield of just under 6%.
Houses for sale in Exeter
Exeter is known for its Georgian and Victorian period homes and this five-bedroom townhouse close to the city centre dates from the early 1700s.
