This exciting development opportunity is located perfectly 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 where numerous events take place throughout the year. Torquay offers a mild climate and a comprehensive range of shopping, eating and educational facilities.
Torquay is an ideal base for exploring the local area thanks to 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
2 Montpellier Terrace is an exceptional Grade II listed building dating back to the early 1800's nestled in an elevated position with views over the harbour and across Tor Bay. The building has in recent years been used as offices but now has planning permission granted along with listed building consent to convert this wonderful building into a residential four bedroom home. This exciting opportunity is a rarity in this location with it being so close to the Marina, amenities found around the harbour and the main sea front.PLANNING
