POSSIBLY Exeter's most plush and prestigious penthouse pad has been sold by Winkworth Estate Agents for princely sum of £630,000 - pipping national agents to the post.
The penthouse on Spicer Road was designed in 2007 and sits behind a gated entrance in the amalgamation of two apartments which form one of the most luxurious addresses in the city.
Simon Scott-Nelson, director at Winkworth, said: "Winkworth inherited the penthouse after a national agent failed to find the owners a buyer and because of our local exposure, and through the 60 London offices, we had a handful of viewings and offers and were then able to achieve an exchange of contracts in a matter of weeks."
The penthouse occupies the entire second floor of the property and has its own roof garden, a CCTV entry phone, internal elevator, managed gardens, two garages and two parking spaces.
The private elevator entrance opens out into the apartment, giving access to four bedrooms, two reception rooms and a kitchen which opens on to the terrace. The extensive south west-facing roof terrace runs the full width of the building, perfect for entertaining and alfresco dining with panoramic views over Exeter.
