Settle Down For The Long-Term In Exeter

Posted 9 May 2023 by Keith Osborne

Paul Furner, director of sales and marketing at Cavanna Homes, on what life in Exeter has to offer…

The historic city of Exeter offers the best of city living and rural life, a combination many buyers look for in the location of their new home.

The thriving city centre is brimming with well-known high street shops and independent boutiques, as well as cafés and restaurants that are ideal for family-friendly meals out, or special occasions with friends.

Sandy beaches are within a 30-minute drive of the city, as are swathes of open space for day trips, dog walks and family adventures. You only need to visit the National Trust’s Killerton Estate and the East Devon Pebblebed Heaths to explore the varied landscape on offer within a stone’s throw.

With coast and countryside right on the doorstep, it’s no wonder that our new homes in Exeter continue to prove popular amongst growing families and professional couples looking to put down their roots in the Westcountry.

Cavanna @ Elm Park is located on the southern outskirts of the city and is surrounded by open green space, with great connections via foot or bike to Exeter Quayside.

The homes at Equinox II and Equinox III are situated within the Tithebarn area, which neighbours the vibrant community of Pinhoe. They’re conveniently close to supermarkets and two parks; Minerva Country Park and Station Road Playing Fields, which has a playground and brand-new BMX park.

A top consideration for families with children or young couples on the hunt for their first family home, are nearby nurseries, schools and colleges.

Matford Brook Academy, the catchment school for children aged 5-16 years living at Cavanna @ Elm Park, opens this September and is within walking and cycling distance. Our Equinox community is within a 30-minute walk of Monkerton Primary School and St Lukes CofE Secondary School.

For post-16 students, Exeter College is the obvious choice having been rated ‘Outstanding’ by Ofsted in an inspection earlier this year. What’s better is our developments are well connected to the city centre by a network of public transport routes, which provide older students with the independence they desire to get to and from college.

At Cavanna Homes we want to give our customers the very best opportunity to get onto or move up the property ladder, which is why we have a number of savings and offers to help make your next home a Cavanna home.

Across all of our developments in Exeter, we’re offering a deposit contribution of £10,000 on selected properties to help buyers secure their home and achieve lower monthly mortgage repayments.

For upsizers or downsizers, we will contribute towards the personalisation of your new home and can help with kitchen upgrades, bathroom tiling, as well as flooring and carpet packages (terms and conditions apply). Don’t forget we also offer the opportunity to help you sell or Part Exchange on your current property (terms and conditions apply too).
