Number Nine Exe is a family owned property investment company and in the same ownership as Southernhay House Hotel.

Exeter is our home, our base; it’s a city worth investing in, both financially and culturally.

Currently, Nine Exe has two significant historic properties, destined for mixed use and with very different backgrounds.

The original, and most glamorous, is Number Nine, Southernhay West. This spacious Grade II* Georgian townhouse was wholly converted in 2019. It now holds 5 open plan floors, all featuring contemporary design with duel-aspect views of the Cathedral and Southernhay Gardens. Three floors are currently in use as offices, the spacious lower-ground is a luxury hotel apartment, and the upper floor is designated for a second hotel apartment early 2025!

The second, and more vernacular property, is an early Victorian artisan’s house in bohemian Gandy Street. With retail on the ground and newly converted mezzanine floors, the property brings a touch of London’s Spitalfields to Exeter.

Following a complete renovation of the property in 2023, Number Nine opened a pop up Gallery for the summer, before its current retail use. The upper two floors, now partially restored, contain generously sized studios – are currently used by local artists.

Of course, behind every property investment company is (or should be) a track record in making historic buildings pay their way and secure their future. You’ll find a snapshot of our track record here.
