***Guide price £525,000 - £550,000*** This is a truly wonderful apartment of great style, offering both spacious and beautifully appointed accommodation, combining the history of the building with high quality modern fittings throughout. Located on the first floor of a Grade II* Listed building, occupying a prestigious and surprisingly peaceful location in Southernhay, the property has easy access to everything that the city centre has to offer. This charming apartment has two double bedrooms, a gorgeous open plan living area, kitchen, two bathrooms, study and mezzanine floor.
This particular apartment is located at the side of the building and enjoys a remarkably peaceful position, overlooking the communal garden and enjoying a south westerly aspect.
Southernhay is the principal business district in the city centre with many fine Georgian buildings grouped around a central green and very few buildings now used for quality apartments, making this now a first class residential address. Dean Clarke House is within only moments of the medieval Cathedral and the Cathedral Green with its restaurants and boutiques, with the first class shopping facilities of Princesshay as well as the High Street also within the vicinity. In addition the Quayside which has a further choice of bars and cafes is within an easy walk and this is where there are opportunities for water sports as well as walks and cycle routes along both the river and the canal. All three hospitals are within a short distance as is St Lukes and the rapidly expanding main university campus. The mainline rail stations as well as the bus and coach stations are equally accessible whilst Exeter International Airport is within just a few miles to the East of the city.
If walking from the High Street the simplest route is to take St Martins Lane (opposite Marks and Spencer), passing the Cathedral and then arriving in Southernhay where you need to cross over to Southernhay East, bearing right and Dean Clarke House will then be found on the left hand side just before you reach Magdalen Street.
We are truly delighted and privileged to be offering this fabulous first floor apartment at Dean Clarke House, a converted hospital building dating back to 1743, now beautifully presented and completed in 2014, it was described at the time as "bringing Mayfair to Exeter". The ground floor reception area features a concierge service, a unique feature in Exeter. Pristine communal hallways and stairs along with a communal lift lead to each floor. The apartment itself has a private hall which has space to have some items of furniture and this then leads into a most impressive open plan living room which has a dining area at one end whilst the sitting room end has a high ceiling and a superb tall bay window enjoying a sunny, south westerly aspect. A wide opening then leads into a stylish kitchen/breakfast room which again is a bright and sunny room enjoying the same aspect as the sitting room. This is beautifully appointed with German hand finished units complete with silestone worktops and includes a number of appliances including an integrated fridge freezer, oven, microwave, dishwasher, washer/drier and a state of the art induction hob with integrated extractor. There is ample cupboard and drawer storage along with an excellent breakfast bar. Beyond the sitting room is a useful study, and a staircase then leads up to the mezzanine level which would make a perfect library or hobbies room. The two bedrooms both lead off the hallway and both are of a very good size. The principal bedroom is well appointed with some excellent built-in wardrobes and shelved cupboards and there is also a beautiful en-suite shower room. In addition the main bathroom has a wonderful freestanding bath, a stylish WC and basin and lovely textured wall tiling. There are fine communal facilities including a gym, meeting room (residents are charged at a discounted rate), beautifully kept gardens and a private secure car park where each apartment has an allocated parking space. The owners of the apartment have signed up and paid for the installation of an EV charging facility on their parking space in the car park. If the new owners drive an electric vehicle they would simply need to add the correct charger point for their own car. Overall this represents a wonderful opportunity to acquire a quality apartment that has been rarely occupied since it was converted, in one of the premier locations in Exeter City Centre. Viewing is highly recommended by the sole agent.
