The section of the former Rolle College site in Exmouth, which has been vacant since 2009 has been re-developed into houses.  

Acorn Property Group have created thirty-three new homes, which include the refurbishment of the historic Grade II listed building Eldin House are set to be released for sale in September.  

 The scheme - Rolle Gardens - will feature a mix of 1 to 4-bedroom houses and apartments with all new-build homes achieving an energy efficiency EPC rating of B. A number of houses and apartments will boast scenic sea views.  The properties have already received extremely high levels of interest from potential buyers.   

 Less than a 10-minute walk to Exmouth beach and in a prime residential area, the former teacher training campus of the University of Plymouth has been an unsightly and unloved site for locals for over a decade.  

Now, alongside the new purpose-built Deaf Academy, Rolle Gardens looks to continue the trend of regeneration in Exmouth, following a recent £15.7M injection from the Government’s Levelling Up fund.  

 Ed Lewis, Regional Director for Acorn’s Exeter region said, “We’re delighted to bring this new development to Exmouth. This site has a great local history, but has remained under-utilised for well over a decade now. We’re excited to be repurposing the site and delivering beautiful new homes in such a sought-after location so near to the Jurassic Coast.”  

"Externally, Rolle Gardens will provide a tranquil, secluded garden feel, with plants and trees positioned alongside a perimeter stone wall, as well as additional green space designed to nurture wildlife. 

"New build homes at Rolle Gardens will also benefit from a variety of features designed to improve energy efficiency, including triple-glazed windows, smart meters, and LED lighting, resulting in an EPC rating of B. This allows for an average energy bill saving for the owners of new-build houses of £2,200 per year, compared to the energy costs of equivalent older houses, according to the Watt a Save Report published in July 2023.  

“As well as the refurbishment of Eldin House, we’re proud to be creating a modern, sustainably designed development complete with green spaces and opportunities for biodiversity. We believe local residents will be very happy with the rejuvenation of the Rolle site.”
