SITUATION
Located in the heart of the English Riviera famed for its mild climate, crystal clear waters and miles of sandy beaches. With the arrival of the railway in 1848, Torquay's growth as a holiday destination for the rich and famous was spectacular. Tor Bay was chosen for the 1948 Olympic sailing events hosted by the Royal Torbay Yacht Club. The harbour, with its large marina, palm trees and subtropical gardens, elegant Georgian terraces, a myriad of bars and restaurants (one with Michelin-starred cuisine), remains the most attractive area.
 
Valencia has, perhaps, some of the finest views on the south coast. It faces due south, overlooking Torbay and the English Channel. Directly opposite, five miles distant, is Berry Head on the other side of the bay, and, to the right, views across the water of Brixham, Paignton and Torquay.
 
From Valencia you can observe some of the busiest shipping waters in the world; cruise liners, container vessels, The Royal Navy mix with yachts and pleasure craft.

DESCRIPTION
This turnkey family home enjoys some of the finest views available on the south coast. Situated in an elevated position on a large corner plot, you can watch the waves crashing onto Thatcher Rock.

There are four bedrooms, the master and guest rooms being en suite.

ACCOMMODATION
The present owners have beautifully cared for this iconic property and is in stunning condition. The main house welcomes you with an open, airy feeling. The villa features patios, courtyards, indoor and alfresco dining areas, and offers a degree of privacy and tranquillity rarely enjoyed in the modern world.
