Situated on the West side of the River Exe, St Thomas and Cowick comprises housing, parks and shops. St Thomas covers the area between Alphington Road and Cowick Street as far as Buddle Lane, this area is close to the city centre and is popular with families. Cowick is the area slightly farther out between Buddle Lane and Tedburn Road and is less densely populated than St Thomas. There is a regular bus service to the city centre and a number of convenience stores dotted around.
Much of St Thomas comprises Victorian terraces of varying sizes, with a few more modern properties scattered around. Parts of St Thomas have flooded in previous decades, but recent and ongoing work on flood defences along the River Exe have prevented this from happening in recent times. Cowick comprises a wider variety of houses with some larger family houses and bungalows. Some of those towards the top of the hill such as the area around Wiltshire Close, offer good views across the Devon countryside.

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.
