Full description

A former characterful coastguards cottage in a pretty terrace with fabulous sea and park views, would make an perfect investment opportunity to generate a good rental income or a lovely family home. 3 Bedrooms, bathroom, kitchen, sitting, dining room & garden, EPC Band D.

Situation - Situated high on a limestone plateau that affords this terrific house great views of the Bay and the harbour, which is why the coastguard originally constructed this look out here in the 18th Century. 200ft above the Blue Flag awarded Meadfoot Beach, this natural plateau provides a marvellous vantage point over the bay. Daddy is an old Devonian word referring to the devil, who locals thought used to reside in a cave at the base of the cliff.
Torquay is situated on the south Devon coast and was a grand anchorage favoured by the Royal Navy during the Napoleonic Wars. Torquay soon benefited from their presence as smart lodging houses were built to accommodate the officers. With a south-facing aspect, miles of sandy beaches and the arrival of the railway in 1848, its growth as a holiday destination for the rich and famous was spectacular. Tor Bay was chosen for the 1948 Olympic sailing events and the harbour with its large marina, elegant Georgian terraces, palm trees and subtropical gardens, remains the most attractive area.
Torbay benefits from a full range of well-respected state and independent schools including the traditional grammar school model. Further afield, the county capital of Exeter provides all of the 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. Mainline rail links can be found in Newton Abbot.

Description - Stags is delighted to offer this coastguard cottage to the open market. The present owners currently use this perfect investment property to generate high rental returns whilst still enjoying use by them and family for high days and holidays, it has provided a useful second home and been a life-changing experience. The house itself forms part of a pretty terrace which we understand was constructed in the 18th Century, and enjoys fabulous views across the Bay and the park. Constructed over two levels with three bedrooms and plentiful reception accommodation, it really is worth seeing to fully appreciate.

Accommodation - With its unique location on Daddyhole Plain with views looking across the plain to the distant sea of the Channel and the sheltered waters of Tor Bay. The property forms part of a terrace of Victorian homes, the accommodation is arranged over two floors with the kitchen positioned to the rear, the sitting room opens to a separate dining room which looks to the courtyard garden and takes in the views. The first floor has 3 bedrooms and a family bathroom.
Testament to the desirability of this home the guest book reads like a list of adjectives with describing their fabulous holiday and enjoyable stay.

Garden & Grounds - A private rear courtyard, perfect for soaking up the rays or BBQing, is ring-fenced and enclosed by stone walls is separated from the house by a pedestrian path allowing access for other residents of the cottages. Located in the rear garden is a single storey stone constructed barn with a slate pitched roof, although in need of some work this has bags of potential and could make useful guest accommodation.
To the front of the property is an appealing terrace, enclosed and paved.
