Tenure: Freehold

A fine example of Victorian elegance, this EXTENSIVE ATTACHED PERIOD RESIDENCE stands behind high gates in a tree lined road enviably set on the southerly hillside above Torquay's Harbour and sea front. An archetypal Town Villa enjoying the spacious accommodation typical of its era, lofty ceiling heights and a host of period detailing retained including the impressive sweeping staircase and ornate cornice work which is complimented by easily managed garden and ample parking. A perfect home for those with a busy lifestyle but requiring space for the extended family, home office or potential to generate additional income. Torquay's town centre, yacht marina and Torre Abbey Sands are all within close proximity and for those who commute, Torquay Train Station is located on the opposite side of the sea front and is just one stop from the main line station of Newton Abbot.
