April 14, 2016, 2:02 pm

Acting on behalf of a private client, Haarer Goss has been instructed to sell 30-32 Longbrook Street - a freehold development opportunity in central Exeter with planning consent for 25 student studio apartments.

This exciting development opportunity is situated at the southern (top) end of Longbrook Street in close proximity to the High Street, the Princesshay Scheme and John Lewis.  It is close to the heart of the city’s retail district and an easy walk to a number of popular pubs, clubs and restaurants.

This broadly level and cleared site extends to approximately 153 sq.m (1,650 sq.ft).  It is situated on the eastern side of Longbrook Street, being immediately accessible from the street and flanked to the north by a terrace of retail and residential properties and to the south by the King Billy public house.  At the rear of the site is a Heavitree sandstone wall which is believed to be part of the original City Wall and must be retained.

Full planning permission was granted by Exeter City Council (Planning Application number 15/0645/03) on 18th March 2016 for the construction of a six storey building for student accommodation (25 studio units).

The consented building provides a total of 389 sq.m (4,187 sq.ft) of residential accommodation in 25 studio apartments over five floors.  Each floor will offer a range of five units including one disabled studio.  The ground floor will comprise the main reception and lift, communal amenity space, the secure cycle store and bin storage facilities.
