Whidborne Avenue is one of the most sought-after roads in the area due to the stunning coastal views available, as well as the quiet ambience it offers, located only a short distance from Torquay's town centre and harbourside. The boutique shops, restaurants and cafes of Wellswood are close by and access to stunning coastal walks and scenery are within easy reach. Torquay provides a wonderful quality of life for its residents with excellent shopping, waterside restaurants, a theatre and bars. The marina provides excellent mooring facilities. The area provides many scenic walks along South Devon's coastal footpaths, with local golf courses also nearby. Torbay benefits from a full range of well-respected state and independent schools including the boys and girls Grammar Schools. Road and Rail links are good out of the area and to London.DESCRIPTION
This fabulous home takes in what must be the finest sea views in the area, and perhaps even the whole south coast. The property is situated right over the dramatic Lyme Bay coastline which stretches away from you, with the cliffs of the Jurassic coast in the distance. On a clear day you can even see the Isle of Portland. The property is laid out over a single level and is located well back in the plot which affords the house and garden a high degree of privacy being well shielded from neighbouring properties. The spacious accommodation is designed around entertaining and takes in the stunning views from the principle rooms through the wall of glass to the rear elevation that opens to the large decked terrace and gardens beyond.ACCOMMODATION
Approaching the front of this wonderful home you would be forgiven for not realising what awaits when you step through the front door and as such we strongly advise an internal viewing to really appreciate what this property offers. On entering the hallway you immediately catch a glimpse of the terrific sea views which draw you through to the large open-plan living area where you can appreciate the full effect. A wall of glass to the rear of the property is split into three triple sliding doors that open the whole area to the large decked terrace, and allow you to admire the magnificent views from anywhere in the room. Designed for entertaining, the different areas are cleverly separated by a change in the floor level with the kitchen set on a raised platform. There is plenty of storage in the array of cream units with black quartz work surfaces and an island unit. The induction hob faces the views and the sink is fitted with an insinkerator waste disposal and Quooker hot tap. There is an integrated fridge and freezer, wine cooler, dishwasher and Neff double oven with grill and microwave. There is plenty of space for a breakfast table below the kitchen, as well as informal seating from which to admire the views. To the far end of the living room is the cosy sitting area with a feature slate chimney breast and log effect gas fire. The formal dining room is open to the living room at one end with a lantern roof light providing lots of natural light, as well as three windows to the front. Off the entrance hall is the cloaks cupboard and WC, as well as the 4th bedroom that would also make a fine study.
The luxurious en suite master bedroom takes in the stunning views with a full width glazed sliding door opening to the terrace, a dressing area has a full range of fitted wardrobes and matching furniture. The large en suite has underfloor heating, a spacious walk-in shower, twin basin vanity unit and a freestanding bath perfectly aligned to take in the views. Two further en suite guest rooms are of generous proportions one with a bath and shower room. A useful utility room is at the end of the hall with space for laundry machines, storage and sink, with a door accessing the large double garage with electric roller shutter door.GARDEN & GROUNDS
Wrought Iron gates open to the brick paved driveway providing plenty of parking and leading to the double garage. A low rendered wall with opening leads to the hard landscaped and sheltered front courtyard garden with a paved path to the front door with a central water feature. Gated access either side of the house leads to the rear. Steps from the large full width composite decked terrace lead to the rear garden which is landscaped over three main levels. The top level is lawned with pathways and steps to the lower levels with several terraced and sitting areas, the mid-level has a hot tub and the lower level a summer house with kitchenette. These areas all take in the coastal views but are also completely private, you cannot see any of the other houses or their gardens, and you really feel as though you could be perched on a remote clifftop.SERVICES
