This CHARACTER APARTMENT occupies the whole first floor of the main portion to an original Victorian villa which has been sympathetically converted to form just three individual homes. The property is tastefully presented with neutral colour schemes throughout and lofty ceiling heights typical of its bygone age. The local Wellswood village is just a short stroll away with a parade of shops, restaurants and pub whilst more comprehensive facilities are found at the base of the hill at Torquay’s Harbourside and Town Centre providing a variety of stores, waterside restaurants, coffee shops, theatre and mooring facilities to name but a few. A scenic walk can also be enjoyed nearby through the wooded Ilsham Valley to Meadfoot Beach.
