I was lucky enough to go into the house not long after it was moved to it’s present location as my Mother in Laws brother lived in the house at that time it was quite an experience and a fascinating place to be in, believed to have been built in the early 1400s. I visited the house in 1967 or 68.

A survival of prewar and medieval Exeter before German Bombers destroyed the ancient city .An irony since the patron saint of Germany came from nearby

The building itself is a bridal shop, but it is an interesting story and the building is quirky. If looking for something similar, there is a Tudor house near the Holiday inn too.

A beautiful house, which currently is a bridal shop. The property is a Grade II listed building, and was due to be demolished to make way for a new road. The house was thought to date from about 1430 and is one of the oldest surviving houses in Exeter. It was felt to be in a poor state of repair and didn't seem that important a loss. However, luckily, with pressure from archaeologists, it was listed just in time, as an important building of architectural and historic significance, and the demolition was halted. Exeter City Council, with help from the government decided to spend £10,000 to have the house moved out of the way of the new road and so it was painstakingly moved to its current location. Just opposite, there is a lovely cobbled lane and you can almost see the people from days of old, walking up and down it. Exeter truly has a rich history.

A curious building that has clearly suffered subsidence. Clearly very old. Seems to be a functioning bridal shop at the moment. There is no signage, so no idea of the history. Worth a look on the way past.
