A beautiful former Victorian rectory originally built as a Rectory on the site of the former Exwick Manor, belonging to the Parish. Built at the turn of the century William Gibbs who appointed his Nephew as Vicar, the building is a fine example of the Gothic Revival, a well known Victorian architectural style following the industrial revolution. The building had a private chapel, a dairy and Stables next to Exwick Hill. It became the Diocesan Training Centre in 1983 and named Mercer House after The Bishop of Exeter.
SITUATION Exwick Manor is located at the end of a long private driveway. The Historical building, which offers four dwellings in total, sits within mature established grounds. It is a peaceful and secluded spot located within the historic and sought after ‘Old Exwick’ which is within easy reach of Exeter and St Davids Railway station and nearby River Exe and Canal basin walks.
DESCRIPTION 3 Exwick Manor represents a superb opportunity for a buyer to create their own home within this exclusive setting, styling their own individual internal decorative finishes whilst nestled within beautiful surroundings of matured gardens with views towards the university of Exeter.
