Cranley is a beautiful Victorian property set on a residential tree lined street. Its location allows for ease of access to the beach and Torquay harbour side and shops.

Named by Trip Advisor 2014 (Travellers Choice) as the top seaside resort in the UK, Torquay is a friendly and pleasant place with opportunities for sporting and leisure pursuits. It has a high degree of educational excellence and health care provided by Torbay Hospital and the private hospital of Mount Stuart.

The sheltered sailing waters of the Tor Bay area are a mecca for water sports enthusiasts, with an award winning 440 berth marina providing a safe harbour. Away from the coast the softly rolling hillsides of Devon hides pretty market towns and the dramatic beauty of Dartmoor, one of two national parks in the county.

In addition to life by the seaside, communication links include access to the intercity network at Newton Abbot with trains to London Paddington (fastest journey time 2 hours 35 minutes), Bristol and the North of England. The recently completed Kingskerswell by-pass has improved journey times to Exeter and the M5 motorway. The University City of Exeter, approximately 21 miles away, has its historic cathedral, vibrant shopping areas and a regional airport operating direct flights to London City Airport.

Cranley is approached over a private driveway to a large parking area at the front of the house. The property sits neatly in the centre of its plot, surrounded by peaceful gardens totalling half an acre. Mainly laid to lawn, the gardens are surrounded by established trees, English Riviera palms and shrubs.
