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. Numerous events take place throughout the year from the harbour, including internationally renowned yacht races and the highly charged power boat championships. Torquay offers a mild climate and a comprehensive range of shopping, eating and educational facilities.
Torquay has mainline railway links to London Paddington and the Cathedral city of Exeter is located within a commutable distance thanks to the new South Devon Highway. Regional airports at both Plymouth and Exeter mean the whole country and the continent beyond are within easy reach.DESCRIPTION
The Riviera is an exclusive gated development of town houses that sits prominently within the Torquay Harbour bowl with spectacular sea views across Tor Bay to Brixham and Berry Head. The property is perfectly situated to enjoy the luxurious lifestyle that is available in the area and is currently used as a main home but is also ideally suited for use as a second home. The restaurants, cafés and bars of the harbour side and seafront are within easy reach as is the town centre.ACCOMMODATION
This particular property is set at the end of the development and boasts more accommodation and a larger garden than the others. With a versatile layout the house is set over four floors with between three and five bedrooms depending on use. Furthermore, the garden level offers potential as a self-contained annexe (subject to necessary permissions). Steps from the parking area lead up to the covered entrance and front door. Upon entering the property there is a cloakroom and stairs leading to both the second floor and garden level. To the left is the large kitchen with floor and wall mounted units, a range of integrated appliances as well as plenty of space for a breakfast table. Also on the first floor is the light and airy sitting/dining room with high ceilings, a particular feature throughout this beautiful property. This room also benefits from French doors leading to a covered balcony where you can sit and watch the activity within the harbour whilst catching the last of the evening sun.
From the entrance hallway stairs lead down to the garden level where there is a large utility room which acts as a secondary kitchen to aid entertaining whilst in the garden. There is also a spacious garden room with French doors leading to the terrace and garden beyond. Completing the accommodation on this level is a bedroom with WC and basin. On the second floor there is an ensuite double bedroom with built in wardrobes and a useful laundry room which was previously another cloakroom. There is a generous room which is the same size as the sitting/dining room and garden room below currently used as a study which could also be used as a bedroom or another sitting room. During the winter months this is a cosy room to admire the lights across the bay thanks to a feature gas fireplace. On the third floor are two further double bedrooms both with ensuite facilities and built in wardrobes with the master enjoying the spectacular elevated views over Tor Bay through characterful arched windows.GARDENS AND GROUNDS
Automated gates access the driveway that leads to the rear of the property where there is an allocated parking space and garage. The garden is the largest in the development with a patio area adjoining the house as well as at the far end of the garden. The remainder is laid to lawn with hedging to one side. As the property is to one end it also benefits from use of the land to the side, although this is officially communal land.SERVICES
