Full description

Tenure: Freehold

This ELEGANT TOWN HOUSE forms part of the prestigious grade II* listed Wellswood Park, a handsome crescent of originally fifteen similar residences enjoying a south facing aspect and overlooking the stunning green swathe of the residents private park adjoining the garden to this striking home.  The park and houses were designed and built circa 1852 by the Harvey Brothers, reputedly one of the finest builders of the period in Torquay. This particular home features the only courtyard approach which provides privacy and a more imposing entrance. The reason for this was the removal of the old north facing servants quarters in 1949 leaving the well proportioned main house with its gracious south facing rooms and principal living space.


The village amenities of Wellswood can be found crossing the end of the road with local pub, restaurants and individual shops of quality whilst scenic walks can be enjoyed beyond through the wooded Ilsham Valley to Meadfoot Beach.  More comprehensive facilities lie at the base of the hill with Torquay's bustling Harbour and the Town Centre offering a variety of stores, waterside restaurants, coffee shops, theatre and mooring facilities to name but a few.
