Lympstone is a picturesque estuary village of approximately 2000 people, situated on the Exe estuary between Exeter and Exmouth just off the A376. It population comprises a mix of young and old, single people and families. Whilst many people commute to Exeter or Exmouth, some work at the nearby Royal Marine Training Centre and the thriving community hosts clubs and activities to suit a wide range of ages and interests. It is a popular stopping off point for cyclists, bird watchers and walkers on the Exe Estuary Cycling Trail and has good rail links to Exeter and Exmouth.
Lympstone has a wide variety of properties of differing size, style and age with about 70 listed buildings in the older parts of the village and newer houses in small estates off the roads leading into the village. The more densely populated ‘lower village’ is situated around the station and harbour whilst the ‘higher village’ is located nearer the A376 around the Saddlers Arms and the church. Houses that back directly onto the river shore have passageways between them leading to the beach and are equipped with metal flood gates that can be closed by residents at times of high tides. There are also a number of holiday cottages and B&B’s.

Accurate valuation advice can be key to selling your home for the best price and in the right timescale. If you are asking too much, it will inevitably lead to no viewings or offers and the property will become stale before you know it. Of course, advertising too cheaply can often result in achieving a low sale price. The asking price needs to be right from the onset.
At Southgate Estates, we promise to always give honest and well researched advice. We spend time with our clients explaining how we have arrived at our valuation and make genuine recommendations on how to best market every home.
We offer free valuations and never use hard sales techniques to push clients into signing up on the day.
