We are all different. From how we like our eggs in the morning, to how we sleep at night; everyone has a different preference. This naturally has an impact on our dream homes and what each of us are looking for when house hunting. Choosing the perfect home for you includes a variety of decisions, considering factors from your property’s distance to the shops, quality schools, convenient public transport, public gardens and available parking space – to name but a few.
As a leading estate agents in Devon and the Exeter area, we think Exeter can tick most (if not all) of these important boxes.Taking into account many of the things prospective homeowners care about when considering buying a home, we’ve decided on our top four reasons to live in Exeter:
1. Public Transport
With frequent trains to London (two and a half hours) and Bristol (one hour), there’s no need to worry about Exeter being an isolated city, it is incredibly well connected and is increasingly becoming a hot spot of its own. What’s more, with buses and smaller train services running throughout the city, there’s always a convenient way to get around.
2. Proximity to Shops
Exeter has an array of supermarkets to choose from, as well as a bounty of local convenience stores. The city centre is made up of an array of big chain stores for all your needs in the convenient Princesshay shopping centre. There are also a range of boutique stores for your more unique shopping needs on famous cobbled streets, such as Gandy street.
3. Beautiful Surroundings
The River Exe is a short and easy walk from Exeter city centre, with a beautiful quay area full of bars and restaurants for lunches, coffees and evening drinks, as well as an intricate network of paths throughout the gorgeous Devon countryside for walking, whether just to soak in the views or to take out your dog. Of course, little needs to be said about the easily accessible parks, moors and beaches with Exmoor national park and the gorgeous Exmouth beaches all only short drives away.
There is an excellent array of private and state schools in the Exeter area, and throughout the region there is a wide range of truly excellent primary schools. If ensuring your children have the best possible education is important in choosing your future home; Exeter is a wonderful choice for you.
