What determines a house sale?  We at East Devon Estates Ltd believe that location and lifestyle are two of the “undersold” reasons for buying a house which is why we as property developers are proud to extol the virtues of living and working in such an outstanding area of natural beauty.

The work/leisure balance is easily achieved when an area is adequately supported by the correct infrastructure.  Here in East Devon we are spoiled with fast network connections to the centre of the city and to all the major cities in the UK via:-

And if you do not wish to be too energetic but would rather just soak up the warmth and hospitality of the local village pubs there are plenty of eating houses to recommend including fine dining .  In contrast you can  immerse yourself in the cultural and vibrant atmosphere of the historic city centre with its renowned university and ever expanding retail outlets ranging from bespoke boutiques to high end department stores and trendy restaurants. Exeter has it all! There is an array of  excellent schools in the area including Colyton Grammar School which boasted the best GCSE results in England.  You would not be disappointed if you chose to settle in East Devon or even invest in a 2nd home to take you away from the stresses and strains of today’s fast moving work environment.
