SITUATION AND DESCRIPTION
This top floor apartment is within an impressive Edwardian house set back from the lane in mature grounds. Just a stones throw from the sea front on the lower slopes of the Livermead hillside, one of Torbay's most desirable locations. The property presents spacious accommodation with two bedrooms, light and airy lounge and modern kitchen/diner. There is also a private balcony, ample loft storage and use of the communal gardens.
Westerlands is situated in an exclusive residential area located close to the sunny south Devon coast. This pretty residential area is sandwiched between the beach, Cockington Valley and the ever popular Livermead and Chelston areas of Torquay. The medieval village of Cockington, noted in the Domesday Book, is a short stroll away, and surrounded by nearly 500 acres of parkland, lakes and woodland walks. The seafront and beach are equally as close, half a mile or so along the seafront is Torquay marina. The area is famous for year round water sports and renowned for its naturally mild climate and award winning beaches. Torquay train station is only a few minutes away. There are first class educational facilities on your doorstep, within a couple of miles are Torquay boys and girls grammar schools as well as a number of well-regarded state and private sector schools.ACCOMMODATION

To your left is the generous kitchen/diner with front aspect uPVC bay windows overlooking the gardens and towards the sea, while the decorative fireplace and picture rails provide character and charm.

The bright and airy lounge on the other side of the kitchen wall benefits from an attractive tiled fireplace surround with electric fire, in keeping with the high ceilings, coving, and picture rails expected of an Edwardian home. The dual aspect uPVC windows and double casement balcony doors allow natural light to flood the lounge and afford sea views over the Bay. The principal bedroom is a substantial double with characteristically high ceilings and it enjoys southerly-aspect uPVC windows and its own door leading on to the balcony providing sea views from the comfort of your bed. Bedroom two with its south west-facing dual sash windows has a lovely soft light making it a lovely bedroom or a great place to set up an at-home work space.
