The former Priory Care Home in Ottery St Mary, which closed in 2017, has now been given a new lease of life and has been beautifully converted as an elegant and stylish development of apartments.
The original building dates from the early 1700s and throughout its life has played a significant part in the fabric of the town. Starting as an impressive private dwelling it then functioned as an independent school and became the Kings Grammar School in the years leading up to the Great War. During the First World War it was home to the Ottery branch of the Royal British Legion before adapting again to become the town’s police station and later, a Care Home.
The remarkably skillful renovation and refurbishment by the current developer re-established Priory House as one of the most striking and important buildings in the town. It now comprises eight individual apartments which offer a high specification.
Not surprisingly several apartments have already been sold. Yet, the luxurious Flat 1 remains on the market and is ripe for the picking. This refined two double bedroom ground-floor apartment is full of quality features that add a level of grandeur. The large open-plan kitchen dining room gives a wonderful sense of space, and there is an elegant separate living room. This apartment displays stunning views of St Mary’s Church, and benefits from basement storage and a car parking space.
