Description

St Luke's House is a newly built contemporary detached four bedroom house, finished to an exceptionally high specification, in a private road in St Leonards, Exeter.

The architect has created a unique modern dwelling which draws on the classical architecture of the original Regency Georgian villas within Baring Crescent, achieved by creating large internal spaces with oversize doors and windows and floor to ceiling light sources. The building has underfloor heating on each floor, washed oak flooring, a smart oak staircase with seamless glass balustrade, a Bulthaup kitchen, and an impressive six metre high opaque glazed wall with stunning glass chandelier.

Situation

St Luke's House is set within one of the most sought after addresses in Exeter, a Georgian garden crescent built in 1820 overlooking the medieval city. Nearby Magdalen Road village has a parade of independent shops and cafes. Waitrose supermarket is a stones throw away, whilst the city centre, Cathedral Close, John Lewis and Princesshay shopping centre are just a ten minute walk.

Exeter is the most thriving city in the southwest with theatres, art centres and museums. Excellent state and private schools include St Leonards Primary, Exeter School, The Maynard and Exeter Cathedral School, whilst Exeter University is recognised as one of the best in the country.

The M5 motorway provides links to Bristol and London, and Exeter St David's station offers train services to London Paddington in just over two hours. Exeter Airport has daily flights to City Airport London as well as international destinations.

Directions

St Luke's House is at the north end of Baring Crescent. From the city centre drive up Heavitree road and with Waitrose on your left turn right into Baring Crescent.
