Originally built as single houses, the site was acquired by St Margaret’s and converted into a school in the 1920s, which welcomed local pupils through its doors well into the 21st Century.

St Margaret’s has now returned to its original use as Exeter-based developer, Grenadier, redevelops the Grade II and Grade II* listed buildings into energy-efficient homes for the area.


The redevelopment celebrates, preserves and sensitively restores features reminiscent of the eras through which St Margaret’s has evolved: including the Georgian high ceilings with delicate coving, elegant staircases and marble fireplaces, as well as the Edwardian stained-glass windows and ornate Ironwork banisters.

Challenging the myth that historic Listed buildings can’t compete with the efficiency of new-build homes, St Margaret’s Residences is leading by example having set a new benchmark for period homes by being the first set of historic buildings in the UK to reach Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) ‘A’


Sustainability is at the heart of every Grenadier development, and St Margaret’s Residences is no exception with the use of multiple renewable energy sources and sustainable materials which benefit both the residents and the environment.

Ground-source heat pumps supply sustainable heating and hot water for residents, while solar panels have been incorporated seamlessly into the roofs to preserve the character of the buildings and provide households with renewable energy. Using local materials and working with local contractors wherever possible has minimised the carbon footprint of the development and supported local businesses.

As the environment takes centre stage, St Margaret’s Residences is prepared for the rising popularity of electric cars, with electric car charging points for the residents to use, and capacity for more to be added as popularity grows.
