Full description

A recently modernised & extended family home with stunning elevated panoramic sea views over Tor Bay. Sympathetically modernised & extended, well placed for commuting, 4 bedrooms (1 en suite), stylish kitchen/breakfast room, large driveway parking area, landscaped gardens.

Situation - Nestling neatly between Torquay and Brixham in the sheltered and beautiful waters of Torbay, Paignton is at the very heart of the English Riviera. This area gained its reputation as a place to see and be seen during the days of Queen Victoria when it was compared to the French and Italian Rivieras because of its sunny climate, breath- taking coastal views and long, sandy beaches. However Paignton had already been around for a long time before the Victorians and it was even mentioned in the Domesday Book.
Today the town is still a lively tourist resort but has a life of its own which lasts all year round. Its busy town centre has all of the local amenities one would expect including shops, restaurants, bars, train station as well as its own Palace Theatre, and the sea front with its long wide promenade, sandy beaches and pier. There is a choice of well-regarded schools in the area including Torquay and Churston Grammar Schools.
Further afield the regional capital of Exeter is now within easy reach thanks to the new South Devon Highway, and provides all of the big brand 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.

Description - Under the watchful eye of the current owners Amberley has been thoughtfully and sympathetically modernised during recent years to a high standard and specification. Their priority was to create a spacious, modern family home whilst being careful to retain many of the 1930s features that help create a warm and inviting space in which to live. With a surprising amount of space the property has been constructed over three levels with the majority of rooms taking advantage of the exceptional sea views, taking in Torquay harbour on one side, across Paignton Seafront and Pier, to Brixham and Berry Head on the other. Internal viewing is highly recommended to appreciate all this wonderful home has to offer.

Accommodation - To the ground floor is the spacious reception accommodation which is well laid out with an easy flow between the rooms. An open storm porch leads through the solid wooden front door to the hallway with engineered oak flooring. The well laid out and stylish kitchen/dining room has a comprehensive range of modern shaker style, solid oak fronted, wall and floor units under a granite work surface with twin inset sink, one with waste disposal unit. There is an integrated double oven, hob with hood over, integrated wine fridge, dishwasher, and space for an American style fridge freezer. A breakfast bar provides an eating area with French doors leading to a decked terrace allowing you to enjoy the tremendous views. A utility room has further storage, sink plus space for washing and drying machines. Sitting/dining room has two large windows allowing you to enjoy the stunning panoramic sea views from Torquay to Brixham and Berry Head. At the sitting room end is a modern gas fire with wooden mantelpiece. Off the hall is a room currently used as a playroom but would also make a fine study with built in storage and shelving. There is cloakroom a WC on this level.
To the first floor are 4 bedrooms, 3 of which take advantage of the spectacular sea views over the whole of Tor Bay and surrounding area. The master bedroom is of a good size and benefits from a luxurious en suite shower room with mostly tiled walls, basin with oak vanity unit below, and heated towel rail, and also has a walk-in wardrobe leading to a further cupboard. The family bathroom is also beautifully finished with a modern white suite with chrome fittings, basin with oak vanity unit below, a shower over the bath, and a heated towel rail. There is a separate WC.

To the lower ground floor are two flexible rooms, currently used as a cinema room, with access to the garden, and home office, plus a useful store room. However this area could be used as further bedroom accommodation if required or even an annexe (subject to the necessary permissions)

Garden & Grounds - A brick paved drive sweeps from the road to the front of the property providing plenty of parking space, with raised landscaped areas giving good separation from the road and increasing privacy. On the drive is a structure used to support the solar PV panels, however with the sides filled in and a roller door fitted, creates a great garage or workshop. The integral garage door leads to a large store room. The rear garden has been cleverly landscaped to maximise the space available, with a level lawn with a paved seating area and raised beds. Steps lead up to a raised deck area which can be accessed from the kitchen and has an electric awning over, a perfect space for alfresco dining whilst admiring the stunning sea views. The garden is enclosed by close board fencing.

Services - Main gas, electricity, water and drainage.
