This fabulous apartment is perfectly located to enjoy all that Torquay has to offer and is within a few minutes' walk of the fantastic restaurants and bars surrounding the vibrant harbour, yet after a hard day you can relax and enjoy the tranquillity with panoramic views of Tor Bay overlooking the harbour and marina.
Torquay is the 'jewel in the crown' of The English Riviera, offering a wonderful quality of life for its residents, whether you choose to relax on one of the nine beaches within the bay, some beautiful and secluded, or sail from the international deep water marina situated in the busy harbour.
Torquay is an ideal base for exploring the local area thanks to the recent opening of the South Devon Highway. Dartmouth, Totnes, Exeter and Plymouth are all within easy reach as well as the rugged hills and Tors of Dartmoor. The bay has mainline railway links to London Paddington via Newton Abbot. Regional airports at both Exeter and Bristol mean the whole country and the continent beyond are within easy reach.DESCRIPTION
Sovereign House is a beautiful Grade II listed building that we understand was originally constructed in 1811 to the designs of Jacob Harvey during the earliest part of Sir Lawrence Palk's development of Torquay, and has been described as an elegant terrace that is historically important in the development of Torquay. Recently converted into 12 luxury apartments behind the Regency facade, these fabulous apartments retain much of the style and glamour from the era, with a modern twist. This particular apartment has its own street level access, with generous accommodation over two floors, and offers three double bedrooms, two with en suite facilities, large open plan sitting and dining room with balcony, comprehensively equipped kitchen/breakfast room, and a family bathroom, totalling almost 1,800 sq ft, plus a useful separate storage room.ACCOMMODATION
