SOLD BY STAGS TORQUAY. A spacious family home situated on a sought after road by the waters edge. Sea views from most rooms, master suite & 5 further bedrooms (4 en suite), level landscaped private gardens, spacious gated driveway, double garage with annexe over. EPC Band D.
With its lively harbour, palm-lined promenade framing the international marina, and temperate year-round climate, Torquay is a stylish destination with a truly continental feel. Small wonder then that this area was dubbed the English Riviera in the Victorian era.
Along Torbay's 22 miles of coastline are 19 award-winning beaches and coves. Sorrento places you but a moments walk from the European Blue Flag Livermead Sands beach, a popular spot for water sports including sailing, kayaking, water-skiing and kite-surfing.
For those wishing to explore, Torquay is the perfect base: Dartmouth and Totnes are both a little under 10 miles away, while Exeter with plenty of big name shopping and international airport lies approximately 30 miles away, also accessible by train from the nearby Torquay Station.DESCRIPTION
Sorrento is ideally located on Cliff Road to take advantage of the wonderful sea views over the bay to Torquay seafront and harbour. Cliff Road is one of the premier roads in the area, a quiet cul-de-sac leading on to Livermead Head which protrudes from the seafront into Tor Bay. This is a sought after road due to its close proximity to the coast, Livermead Sands Beach is a stone's throw away, and easy access to the seafront road. You will struggle to find another property as close to the water as this! Built in 1925 the property has been in the same ownership for the last 30 years and has been extended and modernised over that time which today offers over 4,700 square feet of flexible and adaptable accommodation. Sitting centrally in its plot with a spacious gated driveway parking area to the front and beautifully landscaped and level gardens to the rear the property offers up to six bedrooms including a large master suite, spacious reception accommodation, plus an annexe over the double garage, with the majority of the rooms benefiting from the coastal views.ACCOMMODATION
