A rare opportunity to reconfigure a Grade I Listed property adjacent to the cathedral green.

Believed to date from around 1450, Chorister’s House is a Heavitree stone half-timbered property, currently used as offices but with planning consent for conversion into a residential property. The property offers the prospective purchaser a rare opportunity to reconfigure the almost 1,900 sq. ft. of space to create a unique and surprisingly roomy three to four bedroom home with a wealth of retained period features including sash windows with glazing bars and some exposed beams. Occupying an exclusive position, the property is mtres away from Exeter's striking cathedral and it's attractive green.

The reconfiguration involves the potential removal of some stud walling with the proposed design comprising a through reception hall with a door to the rear courtyard garden, a dual aspect drawing room, a sitting room with rear access, a generous rear aspect kitchen/breakfast room, a utility room and ground floor cloakroom.

The first floor offers the potential for a spacious dual aspect principal bedroom, two further bedrooms, or one bedroom and a family shower room if the third bedroom were converted, subject to the purchaser obtaining the relevant consents.

The vaulted second floor has space for another bedroom and a second cloakroom or potential shower room.


The property is approached through a shared private gated entrance, accessed from the cobbled road overlooking the cathedral green. To the rear is a walled courtyard, providing the potential to be transformed into a peaceful city centre oasis. A parking space is avaialble to rent for about £160 per month behind the building.


9A Choristers House is located in a prime central location, on the doorstep of all the fantastic amenities Exeter has to offer, including its magnificent and historic cathedral. Exeter is the most thriving city in the South West and offers a wide choice of cultural activities including theatres, the RAMM museum, an arts centre and a wealth of good restaurants and shopping such as John Lewis and Waitrose. There are several good schools, both state and independent, whilst Exeter University is recognised as one of the leading universities in the country. The M5 motorway provides links to the A38 to Plymouth, or the A30 to Cornwall to the South, and Bristol and London to the North and East. There are regular rail services to London Paddington from Exeter in just over two hours. Exeter Airport provides a number of domestic and international flights.
