Situation - 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.
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. The magnificent scenery on offer, its broad tree lined roads, the quality of housing stock, proximity to Meadfoot Beach, and the boutique shops and restaurants of Wellswood all combine to make this a very desirable area.
Torquay is well served with direct rail links to the major cities. Exeter airport has flights to many European and international destinations. Educational needs are well catered for by both the state and the private sector including the highly regarded Torquay Grammar schools, Torquay also has a well-regarded Hospital.

Description - Believed to have built in 1937 and currently occupied by only the second owners, Pentlow still retains the charm and features that make properties of that era so popular. Surrounded by mature, level gardens, the house is set well back from Oxlea Road, a quiet road in this sought after Lincombes location. There is over 2,000 sq ft of spacious accommodation traditionally laid out over two floors. There are four double bedrooms, large reception rooms and a lovely family kitchen/dining room with a separate utility room. There is plenty of driveway parking and a detached garage.

Accommodation - The property is entered through the original oak front door into the Entrance vestibule, where there is plenty of storage for coats and shoes, a second door leads to the hall with original oak flooring, stairs rise to the first floor with storage under. The kitchen/dining room is a lovely large room with a comprehensive kitchen at one end comprising of solid wood fronted units under granite work surfaces. There is space for a dishwasher, fridge/freezer and range cooker. At the dining end there is space for a large dining table, with a log burning stove to one side. A door leads to the utility room with further storage, granite work tops, Belfast sink, and space for a washing machine. The sitting room overlooks the front garden with the original fireplace still in situ. The second sitting/family room would have once been the formal dining room and also overlooks the front garden and has the original fire surround.
