Spacious City town houses offering such a wonderful, convenient position and outstanding River views and yet being so central, very rarely come to the market, especially in a managed development like this and subsequently it would be ideal for those who perhaps travel a good amount or live in other cities and want a special Devon home to escape to. Its is also equally ideal for anyone who wants to be able to have space to work from home in a unique setting with all that the city cente has to offer just around the corner.
Riverside court is superbly positioned being at the end of Colleton Crescent which is a landmark Crescent of properties located above Exeter's historic Quayside, offering stunning views directly down over the Quay and river and out to the Haldon Hills and Dartmoor in the distance. Situated in a quiet development, set back from the road, it is remarkably peaceful for such a central location, within easy walking distance of the cathedral and the many shops, cafes, restaurants and facilities that the city centre has to offer. The property is within St Leonards which is regarded as the city's premier district and is very conveniently placed not only for access in and out of the city centre but also had ready access to the road network from Topsham road out to the M5 A30 and A38 on the eastern side of the city. The wonderful Quayside is only moments away, offering an eclectic mix of waterside restaurants, cafes and boutique shops as well as water sports and tranquil walks and boat trips down the river, flanked by meadows.
