This is a wonderful opportunity to rent a piece of Exeter's history close to the centre of the city. It is a Grade II listed, three-bedroomed house with a wealth of character and was originally the refectory wing of an 11th-century Benedictine monastery.
The property, which is approached through a gated medieval garden, has an entrance door leading into a panelled corridor which has oak panelling dating back to the 15th century. On the ground floor there are two double bedrooms, a cloakroom with the remnants of some carved Tudor roses above the door, and a dining room with historic window glass that is entered into through a 17th-century door. This has a magnificent 16th-century, triple-arched window. Go through a medieval stone archway and 16th-century door and you arrive at the kitchen, which has been fitted with modern units. The spacious sitting room has 17th-century panelling to waist height and a window overlooking the cloister garden.
There is an attractive 18th-century staircase leading to the landing which has a 16th-century window to the side.
The first floor has a further double bedroom which has a 16th-century window to the side with original shutters and window seat. There is a large bathroom with modern facilities.
This is a superb piece of history for someone to enjoy, however, as it a Heritage Project, it would have "open days" during the year with guided tours by staff of the Exeter Historical Building Trust.
The rent is £850.00 per calendar month, exclusive, is being offered unfurnished and is available January 2014.
