A substantial detached house built in the late19th century with outstanding sea views. At present comprises the major part of the house as a single dwelling, with two additional, integral apartments. Private gated grounds, double garage and office.


Lauderdale is in a spectacular position on the coastal road in Torquay overlooking the sea. Torquay is a sophisticated seaside town, which, along with Paignton and Brixham, forms the conurbation of Torbay, known as "The English Riviera". Torquay, well known for its sandy beaches, palm lined promenade and grand Victorian villas, has a marina and yachting harbour, all of which are within a short drive and the local Livermead Beach is across the road from Lauderdale. There are excellent shopping facilities, including an out of town complex of well known stores.

The magnificent coastline of Torbay reaches from Torquay to the fishing port of Brixham, the surrounding picturesque coves and hillsides giving a scenic backdrop to the sparkling water. The cathedral city of Exeter is about 23 miles north. A rail link from Torquay connects to the inter-city rail service operating from Newton Abbot. From Newton Abbot, the A380 dual carriageway connects with the M5 at Exeter.


Lauderdale, a substantial detached house built in the late19th century, at present comprises the major part of the house as a single dwelling, with two additional, integral apartments. Both apartments are suitable for holiday or long term lets, or equally suitable as an annexe to the main house. Original period features include high ceilings, moulded plasterwork and tall windows giving wonderful views of the sea and coastline. The house could be converted back into one main dwelling and has many of its original features. Lauderdale - The main part of the house offers a magnificent entrance hall with Victorian tiled floor which leads to the diningroom, sitting room and 3 double bedrooms. The main bedroom and sitting room enjoy the wonderful views and the sitting room has a French door out to the terrace. There is an en suite to the main bedroom and a further bathroom. The basement offers plenty of potential and has 4 rooms with a cobbled floor in part. A communal entrance hall to the two flats leads to a staircase up to :
