A chalet style bungalow offering terrific privacy and sea views, set in a quarter of an acre plot. Sitting room, drawing room, dining room, study/bed 4, kitchen, 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, sea views, garage and gardens. EPC Band D.


Set amongst its seven green hills, nine beaches, palm-lined promenades and lively harbour side it is no surprise that Torquay is known as the Queen of the English Riviera. With spectacular views across Tor Bay and a townscape more reminiscent of Monaco, it is easy to imagine oneself living in the south of France rather than south Devon.
Whilst Torquay owes much of its fame and history to its success as a Victorian resort it has not stood still and today it has transformed itself, with a deep water marina alongside the harbour, where pavement cafes and boutique shops abound along with a wide range of top class restaurants.
Further afield the regional capital of Exeter (approx. 30 minutes by train) provides all of the big brand shopping and dining experiences that one could wish for. Exeter has an International Airport offering a wide variety of business and leisure destinations within Europe and beyond.
In the early 19th Century the first town plans for Torquay were drawn up and the exclusive residential areas of the Warberries and Lincombes were created. The Lincombes still retains its character today with several of the original properties still standing among the tree-clad hills, notably Hesketh Crescent, completed in 1848. With its sweeping Regency facade it was described at the time as the finest crescent of houses in the West of England. However, it is not just its history that makes the Lincombes such a desirable neighbourhood. The magnificent scenery on offer, its broad tree lined roads, the quality of its housing stock and its proximity to Manor Gardens, Meadfoot Beach and the boutique shops and restaurants of Wellswood all combine to make it a very attractive proposition to modern families.


Located on a highly desirable residential street that carries very little traffic due to its horse shoe nature. Two Ways is tucked away and therefore offers a great deal of privacy. The property is set in a plot that measures of acre, and the gardens are beautifully laid out with masses of colour, established borders and far reaching views towards both Tor Bay and Lyme Bay.


Approached from the driveway and garage the pathway leads to the front door, hidden under the storm porch. Beyond this you will find the spacious vestibule, on the right hand side, where, you will find the downstairs cloakroom. Turning left there is a study or a useful home office. At the far end of the house is the drawing room, adjacent to this is the dual aspect sitting room with plenty of natural light from the bay window and open views across the harbour , French doors lead to the gardens beyond, there is also a gas living flame fire.
At the other end of the house is the dining room, again with far reaching views across Lyme Bay and the wooded hill interspersed with pretty Victorian villas, next to this is the lovely fitted kitchen with utility/pantry and a door that leads out to the garden.
The master bedroom can also be found at this level with the family bathroom opposite.
To the first floor you will find two further bedrooms both with spectacular sea views and an additional bathroom.

Garden & Grounds

The gardens are surprisingly private, accessed from the off street parking area which in turn leads to the garage. Steps lead down to the level lawned area. The present owners are keen gardeners and there is plenty of colour and specimen flora. At the far end of the garden is a productive veggie plot. The entire plot measures a quarter of an acre. In an under croft space under the house is an extremely useful storage area or workroom.
