SITUATION On the banks of the River Exe Estuary, Topsham is an historic town located to the south of the university and cathedral city of Exeter. The town, listed in the Domesday Book, served as a bustling estuary port for several centuries and gained renown for its shipbuilding activities from the mid-18th to the 19th centuries.
Topsham boasts attractive period houses and cottages, including the elegant 17th-century Dutch-style merchant houses along The Strand. The town features an eclectic mix of specialist shops, pubs, and restaurants, as well as a school, museum, bowling alley, and sailing club.
Dart's Farm, offering lifestyle shopping and local produce, and the Bowling Green Marsh RSPB Reserve, home to diverse water-birds, are located on the outskirts of the town. A passenger ferry connects Topsham to the idyllic waterside pubs, the Turf and Double Locks, while Exeter is just a short drive or train journey away, providing comprehensive shopping, cultural, and sporting facilities.
The property enjoys convenient access to major transport links, with J31 of the M5 just a few miles away.
