A family who recently made the move from central Exeter to our Riverside Walk development in Countess Wear couldn’t be happier with their decision to settle on the outskirts of the city.
Harry and Sophie Tombs moved to Riverside Walk in search of more space. With a new baby and a dog, the couple knew that a spacious house with a garden was what they were seeking. After visiting the development in Wear Barton Road, the couple settled on a three-bedroom Byford.
Harry and Sophie are both managers of businesses in Exeter Quay, so open space and cycle links into the city were key considerations for the couple. Riverside Walk has plenty of green space at the development and is close to Exeter’s network of cycle paths, making it the perfect choice for a family that enjoys an active lifestyle.
Harry said: “We’re loving Riverside Walk and being in Countess Wear; we’ve always liked the area and it’s an easy commute to work along the cycle path with great access to the Exe Estuary Trail. We’ve recently started our family and we also own a dog, so the green space that the development has is a huge plus; we’re never stuck for walking routes.
“The development itself looks great, and brings a modern touch to an area with some older estates. We were looking for a three-bedroom house and wanted one that had good proportioned rooms. The whole downstairs area of the Byford is nice and spacious and the upstairs rooms are large enough to fit everything we need, but it still feels cosy.
