Councillor Paul Diviani cut the ribbon at Withycombe House, which has been restored and converted into homes as part of developer C G Fry’s Hillcrest development.

The official launch of the refurbished house gave visitors a chance to look around the Grade II listed gothic villa, built circa 1850, and to enjoy a wine tasting and food matching session courtesy of Jim Kingston of Topsham Wines.

Cllr Diviani said: “It was a pleasure to be part of the ribbon-cutting ceremony and see at first hand the quality of workmanship undertaken to restore Withycombe House.

“Family-owned independent developer C G Fry has shown us once again how they use their extensive experience in listed buildings by taking a landmark building and restoring it to its former glory, to create high quality and bespoke homes with the surrounding area.”
