Property offer hope for community organisations

A character building in a suburban part of Exeter has come to the market, and is likely to be of interest to community and arts organisations, clubs and leisure users.

Hope Hall is a period building in the Wonford area of Exeter, between the Royal Devon and Exeter Hospital and Heavitree. It retains many of its original features, and has been sensitively improved over the years, including the addition of central heating and solar panels. It includes a useful garden area to the rear with vehicular access.

Recent occupiers have included artists’ studios and community organisations, but it would also ideally suit uses such as yoga or dance studio, pre-school play centre, a religious centre or a base for a charity. Most of these uses would not require planning consent, as the current consent permits assembly and leisure uses.

The property will be available shortly, and viewings can be arranged via the letting agents, Stratton Creber Commercial.

Jonathan Ling of Stratton Creber Commercial comments: “This property has lots of character and is easily accessible by foot from both Wonford and Heavitree areas, as well as being within walking distance of several city bus routes. As so many community spaces and public halls have been lost to residential use in recent years, Hope Hall offers a valuable opportunity to a wide variety of clubs and organisations, and we hope that a new tenant will allow a broad sector of the local community to enjoy the building and what it has to offer.”
