  • Cathedral View certainly lives up to its name!

    Talk about a religious conversion! This newly converted penthouse has some of the most spectacular views we’ve ever seen. It spans the top floor of a Grade-II listed former clerical building adjacent to Exeter’s impressive cathedral, and boasts a private roof terrace with 360-degree views over the city.

    Another beauty: Linda Barker’s Yorkshire home is on the market for £475,000 and it’s BEAUTIFUL!

    Take a look around and discover why we’re singing its praises!

    Part of a complex of seven apartments, this penthouse is undoubtedly the star of the show. It boasts three bedrooms, huge open-plan living spaces and two fabulous outdoor terraces, where you can take in the views of Exeter and surrounding Devon countryside.

    A private entrance hall opens up into this space. White walls and classic parquet floors provide the first owners with a smart blank canvas to interpret however they choose.

    The building’s original features – including its beautiful windows – are juxtaposed with contemporary details like the widescreen fireplace. With so much space on offer, large-scale furniture is the only way to go.

    Live to entertain? This place is perfect for you. A breakfast bar provides a natural spot for friends to gather and envy over your prime location. We’re also a little bit in love with that cheeky cactus ornament!

    In another corner there’s space for a long dining table – we reckon you could go longer than this eight seater, no problem.

    A hallway leading to the bedrooms features another original detail – some beautiful stained glass panels.

    Feast your eyes on this! You could live in these spectacular converted stables – and wait until you see the views!

    All three bedrooms are doubles, with fitted wardrobes providing ample storage.

    A trio of en suite bathrooms are decked out in luxe materials – we especially love this marble, particularly in the form of hexagonal floor tiles. That generous vanity unit isn’t too shabby, either!

    This view could be yours for the princely sum of £1.25million. The apartment is on the market with Knight Frank, and comes with a 998-year leasehold.
