Southerly occupies a commanding position on one of Torquay's seven hills, with what must be some of the best panoramic sea views over the harbour, marina and the glistening waters of Tor Bay and the surrounding coastline, on the picturesque South Devon coast.
Torquay is one of three beautiful towns forming the sheltered Tor Bay and is renowned for the warm climate, clear bathing waters and clean air. The local beaches form a golden arc around the bay with shingle coves scattered nearby. The town provides a wonderful quality of life for its residents with excellent shopping, waterside restaurants, a theatre and bars. Internationally renowned water sports are held in the sheltered bay, with the marina providing excellent mooring facilities for luxury yachts and motor cruisers. The area provides many scenic walks along south Devon's coastal footpaths, with local golf courses also nearby.DESCRIPTION
Constructed in 1961 and in the same family ownership since, this interesting home is one of very few houses in this location with most having been divided or rebuilt into luxury apartments. Southerly occupies a large plot and is perched high above Torquay harbour with stunning panoramic sea views from all main rooms. Although the property has been well maintained over the years it now requires a degree of modernisation giving the opportunity for the next owner to create something really special.ACCOMMODATION
The house is of reverse level design over two floors to give the very best views from the reception rooms, although the views from the bedrooms are also incredible. The entrance hall leads to the sitting room which is of a good size with a large picture window allowing you to admire the spectacular views, the dining room also has a large picture window with the same views and has more recently been used as a bedroom with an en suite shower room to the rear. The kitchen is behind the dining room but has a window allowing you to look through dining room to the views beyond. We believe the kitchen to be original fitted at the time of build, a door leads to the garage. To the rear of the sitting room is a further room currently used as a single bedroom with shower, basin and WC, however could make a great study.
Stairs descend to the lower level where there are four main rooms, two of which are through rooms to reach the rooms beyond. Currently three are used as bedrooms and the fourth set up as kitchen, all benefit from the views with large expanses of glass. There is also a bathroom and utility room on this level.GARDENS & GROUNDS
To the front the property is privately located behind a wall with an opening for vehicular access that could be fitted with a roller door for complete privacy. There is space to park two vehicles as well as access to a double garage, leaving this area free to use as a courtyard which is covered in the area of the front door. To the rear of the property accessed from the lower level is terrace extending the full width of the property with steps leading to a large garden extending down to Rock Walk. This is terraced over several levels with interconnecting steps and pathways and divided by hedging. On the mid-level is a BBQ terrace and summer house. Views can be admired from all parts of the garden.AGENTS NOTE
