Meadow Road is one of Torquays best kept secrets and is arguably one of the finest locations the Bay has to offer. This quiet cul de sac is situated between the favoured areas of Chelston and Livermead, and forms part of the Cockington Conservation area. The few properties along this private road rarely come up for sale and benefit from a high degree of privacy and lovely views over the surrounding area to the sea. The medieval village of Cockington, only a short stroll away, is noted in the Domesday Book, and is surrounded by nearly 500 acres of parkland, lakes and woodland walks. The seafront and beach are equally as close, half a mile or so along the sea front is Torquay marina. The area is famous for year round water sports and renowned for its naturally mild climate and award winning beaches.
There are first class educational facilities on your doorstep; within a couple of miles are Torquay boys and girls grammar schools as well as a number of well-regarded state and private sector schools.
With the new link road Exeter and the M5 motorway can be reached in half an hour. Torquay train station is only a few minutes away with a mainline service to Paddington via Newton Abbot. Exeter Airport has regular flights to many international and European destinations.DESCRIPTION
This spacious family home is situated on a large plot with a sunny southerly orientation that benefits from a high degree of privacy. From many of the rooms there are beautiful sea views over the gardens and trees, across the Bay to Berry Head. The current owners have significantly extended and improved the property during their term of ownership with accommodation now extending to 3,800 sq ft with generous rooms throughout. The accommodation is traditionally laid out over two floors with 4 generous double bedrooms (2 en suite) and family bathroom off the large galleried landing, an impressive kitchen/dining room, large sitting room, study, shower room and utility room. Over the integral double garage there is a useful 1 bedroom annexe.ACCOMMODATION
The front door opens to the impressive double height reception hall where a wide turned staircase leads to the first floor galleried landing. The large triple aspect sitting room has patio doors leading to the terrace overlooking the gardens to the sea, and a gas fire with marble surround. The recently extended kitchen/dining room is very spacious and light thanks to the large bay window where French doors open to a decked terrace and take in the sea views. Smart polished tiled floors compliment the gloss white kitchen units with granite work surfaces. There is an integrated dishwasher, induction hob and eye level double oven. To the rear of the kitchen the utility room has further storage, sink and leads on the garage. The study is accessed from the hall and sitting room, and could also be a ground floor bedroom as there is a shower room/WC off the hall.
To the first floor are four double bedrooms. The recently added en suite master bedroom is particularly generous and has French doors leading to a Juliet balcony taking in the fabulous views over the surrounding area and across the bay to Berry Head. Bedroom 2 is also of a good size with en suite facilities with a door opening to a balcony from where you can admire the views. The luxurious family bathroom has pedestal bath and shower cubicle.
The annexe is situated over the garage with its own entrance, and consists of a double bedroom, bathroom and kitchen/sitting room. Current planning does not allow for letting but it would be ideal for an extended family member, or independent teenager/young adult.GARDEN AND GROUNDS
From the impressive gated entrance a tarmacadam driveway sweeps past the gardens to the parking area adjacent to the integral double garage. The beautiful and private landscaped grounds are predominantly south facing and gently slope away from the house. The large area of lawn is interspersed with mature trees and bounded by trees, shrubs and hedging. A terrace off the front of the house can be accessed from the sitting room and kitchen/dining room, ideal for alfresco dining and takes in the sea views.SERVICES
