Located on the outskirts of Paignton, this property is ideally situated to access all the local and surrounding area has to offer. Paignton sits between Torquay and Brixham in the sheltered waters of Tor Bay. The town is a lively tourist resort but also has a life of its own which lasts all year round. Its busy town centre has all of the local amenities one would expect including shops, restaurants, bars, train station and theatre, plus the sea front with its promenade, sandy beaches and pier. There is a choice of well-regarded schools in the area including Torquay and Churston Grammar Schools.
Further afield the regional capital of Exeter is now within easy reach thanks to the new South Devon Highway. Exeter's International Airport offers a wide variety of business and leisure destinations within Europe and beyond.DESCRIPTION
