What makes Devon so special?
Devon has the best of everything – stunning countryside and coastal landscapes, including five designated Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty, two National Parks and a variety of vibrant market towns. Exeter, where our Devon office is based, is a beautiful city with a wonderfully close-knit community, but the key thing is its location. Within half an hour, you can be on the beach or at the top of Dartmoor.
Who lives here?
Devon’s appeal is as diverse as its landscape. It is popular with downsizers, thanks to its excellent cultural scene, great pubs and restaurants, while young families are attracted by its well-regarded schools. In Exeter, these include the Maynard School, Exeter School and, for the musically talented, Exeter Cathedral School, which is where Coldplay’s Chris Martin was educated. In the wider county, Blundell’s School, Mount Kelly and Kingsley School are also popular.
We have seen more entrepreneurial buyers in recent years seeking opportunities to live and innovate in the area. We also regularly work with multigenerational families looking to set up home in the county.
