The property is arranged over four floors with the main family accommodation on the ground, first and second floors. The basement that occupies the entire lower ground floor is partly used for storage by the Landlord but may be used to store bikes etc. Whilst retaining many of its period features including sash windows, high ceilings, fireplaces and beautiful wooden floors, this is very much a modern, comfortable family home offering over 3035 sq.ft of flexible and adaptable accommodation. Thanks to its high ceilings, sunny aspect and the generous proportions of all the rooms the house feels full of natural light and space.

Set in a plot measuring 0.194 of an acre, unusually with road access from both Barton Road and Cricketfield Road which means there is plenty of off street parking. On entering the house there is a large boot room, which is most likely a more recent addition. On entering the hallway you will notice the original terracotta tiled floor which harks back to a bygone age. A grand returning staircase leads up to the first floor, and also conceals the staircase which leads down to the basement. The drawing room has a gas fireplace to provide a focal point, this generous room has views over the gardens to the front of the property. Adjacent to the drawing room is the sitting room, which is currently used as a play room and music room. Across the hall, the formal dining room, again, is an imposing room with a wood burning stove and New England style shutters. From the ground floor an internal staircase leads to the basement area, part of which is used by the Landlord for storage but there is room for storing bikes etc..

The kitchen has been recently refitted with a stylish shaker style central island unit with a reclaimed oak top, with integral sink and drainer and integrated appliances. A welsh dresser lines one wall, which may be available by separate negotiation. Another very practical feature is the utility room which provides space for the white goods and gives access to the gardens.

The first floor houses three generous double bedrooms and the study. There is also a family bathroom. Many of the principal bedrooms enjoy views across the town and sports field. Upstairs again there are a further two double bedrooms and a shower room which ensures that the morning queue for the bathroom is kept to a minimum.

The main garden lies to the rear of the property and has been largely laid to grass. The local stone walls, mature trees and shrubs which surround the garden provide a great deal of privacy and seclusion. At the bottom of the garden tucked away in one corner is a terrace area perfect for alfresco dining. There is parking to the front of a garage (which is not included in the rental).

Set amongst its seven green hills, nine beaches, palm-lined promenades and lively harbour side it's no surprise that Torquay is known as the Queen of the English Riviera. With spectacular views across Tor Bay and a townscape more reminiscent of Monaco it is easy to imagine oneself living in the South of France rather than South Devon. Whilst Torquay owes much of its fame and history to its success as a Victorian resort, it hasn't stood still and today it has transformed itself and boasts a deep water marina alongside the harbour, where pavement cafes and boutique shops abound along with a wide range of top class restaurants. Further afield the regional capital of Exeter (approx. 30 minutes by train) provides all of the big brand shopping and dining experiences that one could wish for. Exeter's International Airport offers a wide variety of business and leisure destinations within Europe and beyond.

Within striking distance of the town, marina and harbour side this wonderful family home is set in an elevated position. The house is typical of the large residences built towards the end of the Nineteenth Century in the area.
