Torquay is one of three beautiful towns forming the sheltered Tor Bay and is renowned for the warm climate, clear bathing waters and clean air. The local beaches form a golden arc around the bay with shingle coves scattered nearby.
 
The town provides a wonderful quality of life for its residents with excellent shopping, waterside restaurants, a theatre and bars. Internationally renowned water sports are held in the sheltered deep water bay, with the marina providing excellent mooring facilities for luxury yachts and motor cruisers. The area provides many scenic walks along south Devon's coastal footpaths, with local golf courses also nearby. A short distance to the north lies the magnificent Dartmoor National Park.
 
Torquay became fashionable for naval officers and other affluent families during the first half of the 19th century, which prompted the building of many large fashionable villas and exclusive hotels. Today, Torquay is well served with direct rail links to the major cities, a motorway network and nearby airport at the Cathedral City of Exeter.

The property also boasts landscaped grounds with terracing, outdoor entertainment area with pool, decking and an outdoor bar.

Accommodation - This fine grade II listed villa sits in a commanding position on one of Torquay's seven green hills with splendid sea views. This imposing villa would make a tremendous life style investment, it stands within its own grounds that measure 3/4 of an acre on the picturesque south Devon coast.
