House prices in Devon
Although it is known to be slightly more affordable than Cornwall and Somerset, Devon has comparable average prices to both of its South West neighbours. However, house prices are lower than across the whole of the region, with some areas having more achievable property values than others.
Where to live in Devon
Devon is famous for its epic natural scenery. This includes hundreds of miles of coastline and a selection of expansive national parks and beauty spots, both along the coast and inland. Deciding the sort of lifestyle you want to lead will help you determine which areas of Devon are most appealing, with plenty of towns, cities and villages to choose between.
If you’re searching for relatively affordable Devon house prices with access to one of the region’s leading cities, Exeter could be for you. As an exciting place to live with plenty of culture, buying a new home in the city is likely to prove a shrewd investment in both the short and long term. This includes the popular Alphington suburb, where our Victoria Heights development is located.
Around 40 miles from Exeter as the crow flies, Plymouth sits in the south-west corner of Devon. A great place to invest in a property market which always benefits from the port city’s seaside setting, average prices in Plymouth are significantly lower than the average across the county. This means you could get much more house for your money in this area.
Heading east along the coast, Torquay is another place that’s popular among homebuyers on account of its seaside culture. Our Berry Acres site is less than five miles from Torquay in neighbouring Paignton, where you’ll find a collection of 4 bedroom homes within walking distance of the coast, the River Dart, and a host of other attractions.
If you’d rather buy property inland, Tiverton is a sought-after town set into swathes of open countryside. It’s also conveniently located for the M5 motorway that runs between Exeter and Bristol, meaning our Braid Park development is a viable place to live for commuters to the two cities.
As one of the most attractive seaside resorts in the South West, you can expect some of the strongest house prices north Devon has to offer in Woolacombe. A desirable village popular among beachgoers and surfers alike, there’s a three-mile stretch of golden sand to relax on between the striking Baggy Point and Morte Point headlands.
