Set amongst its seven green hills, nine beaches, palm-lined promenades and lively harbour side its no surprise that Torquay is known as the Queen of the English Riviera. Whilst Torquay owes much of its fame and history to its success as a Victorian resort it hasn't stood still and today it has transformed itself into a perfect location to bring up a family with many highly regarded educational facilities including Torquay girls and boys Grammar Schools, together with comprehensive and private schools a short drive away.
Located on the northern fringes of the town the property is well positioned for ease of access in and out of the area as well as The Willows shopping centre and Torbay Hospital. Communications further afield are excellent with the recently opened South Devon Link Road joining the A380 dual carriageway giving fast access to Exeter and the M5 motorway. A railway station at Newton Abbot gives easy access to London Paddington together with the regional airport at Exeter.DESCRIPTION

During this time the property has been thoughtfully extended and updated throughout and today forms a modern family home presented to a high standard. Accommodation briefly comprises of 4 bedrooms, a bathroom on each level, modern kitchen/breakfast room, utility, dining room, sitting room, and conservatory. The sunny rear garden is of a very good size and broadly level, whilst at the front is a large brick paved parking area and tarmac driveway leading to the garage.ACCOMMODATION

A door from the conservatory leads into the garage and from there to the utility room where there is a wash basin and space and plumbing for washing and drying machines.

The south facing rear garden is a real feature of this property, it is of a good size, broadly level and mostly laid to lawn interspersed with small trees and shrubs and surrounded by hedging and wooden fence panels. It also benefits from a high degree of privacy.

At the rear of the garage, off the utility room, is a screened clothes drying area.
