The property

This superb duplex apartment (which sits on top of a residential flat and a divine natural foods shop) is neatly tucked away just a stone's throw from the river in Topsham, one of Devon's most popular towns.

Beautifully restored to seamlessly blend original character with contemporary features, St Margaret's Steps enjoys views over the river Exe and rests adjacent to the 10th century churchyard.

Unlike the other properties here which are accessed via Fore Street, this apartment is approached via the churchyard which adds to the secluded feel.

Accessed via external steps, you enter via a welcoming entrance hall, off which is the stunning kitchen/dining area, a glorious open space with a central island, exposed beams and sleek surfaces.

You'll find everything you'll need to cater for the family and a large seating area with comfy sofas means the chef is never without company.

A second formal seating area enjoys some of the best views in the property looking out over the river and church.

Also on the ground floor is a twin bedded room and a family bathroom.

Spiral stairs lead to the master bedroom where you'll find a huge super-king-size bed and a claw foot bath tub in the Jack-and-Jill style bathroom, perfect for a long soak before retiring at the end of the day.

A second staircase leads through a large landing area which has twin futon style beds, to bedroom three a further twin which also has access to the bathroom.

Outside you'll find a neat little terraced garden with a table and chairs.

The little town of Topsham lies directly on the Exe Estuary Trail, a 26 mile, mainly level cycle and walking route along the river.

Everything here is right on the doorstep, within a very short walk are pubs, a range of independent shops, galleries and even an outdoor swimming pool.

For those wanting to leave the car at home, Topsham also has its own railway station served by the Avocet Line, a much loved 10-mile railway connecting the historic cathedral city of Exeter to the golden sandy beach at Exmouth and within a short walk.

Ideal for those wanting to explore this gentle, picture perfect area of Devon or just a touch of luxury with convenience at hand, St Margaret's Steps is an ideal choice.

About the location


Exeter 4.5 miles; Exmouth 6.5 miles; Newton Abbot 17.2 miles.

The charming town of Topsham is set on the River Exe estuary and has been declared a conservation area due to the wealth of 17th and 18th century merchants' houses, many built in the Dutch style with carved gable ends. Within the town you will be delighted to find a selection of historic pubs and award-winning restaurants including The Galley Fish and Seafood Restaurant, which boasts panoramic views of the Exe Estuary. Foodie lovers will also enjoy the town’s food festival which happens every summer. The town also plays host to a magnitude of independent shops, galleries and the Topsham Museum is an interesting visit. From here, you can catch a train into the city of Exeter where you can explore the city walls which surround the centre and the Gothic Cathedral, or head in the opposite direction and soak up the sun at the seaside resort of Exmouth. Topsham promises a wonderful escape to Devon, where you can have the best of both worlds within a short drive.
