St Thomas of Canterbury Church, listed as a 'building of local importance', is a truly stunning home built in the 1930's. This impressive church was recently derelict until purchased in 2006 and developed into two very unique properties. Canterbury House has been exquisitely renovated providing gracious and elegant accommodation, whilst retaining a wealth of character including high ceilings, exposed beams and original stone mullion windows. These beautiful character aspects are complimented by modern features such as en suite bathroom, underfloor heating to the ground floor, gas central heating, bespoke handmade double glazed windows and an exceptional open plan kitchen fitted with granite work surfaces and integrated appliances. An excellent space for entertaining friends and family. Outside there is a level lawned garden to the front and side with two patios and a gravelled parking area which the adjoining house has right of way over.


A suburb of Exeter to the West of the city centre. St Thomas has its own shopping centre with banks, pubs, a post office, doctors surgery and church. A choice of schools with the West Exe Technology College also within walking distance and Sainsburys supermarket also nearby. Access onto the A30, A 38 and M5 is close by whilst a regular bus service travels into the city centre with its wide range of retail and leisure facilities, University of Exeter and Cathedral.
