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.
Take a look around and discover why we’re singing its praises!
Cathedral View, Exeter
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.
Open-plan living room
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.
We’re currently working out if we could handle the commute from Exeter to Ideal Home Towers!
