Situation - Situated high on a limestone plateau and only a short cliff top stroll from the Blue Flag awarded Meadfoot Beach, Daddyhole Plain takes its name from Daddy which is an old Devonian word referring to the devil, who locals thought used to reside in a cave at the base of the cliff. Daddyhole Road is a quiet residential road that leads to this terrific vantage point over Tor Bay. This exclusive part of Torquay is within an easy walk of the main town with its shops, restaurants and marina facilities.
 
Torbay benefits from a full range of well-respected state and independent schools including the traditional grammar school model. Further afield, the county capital of Exeter provides all of the 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. Mainline rail links can be found in Newton Abbot 5 miles away.
 
Today, the lifestyle the area affords its residents is truly unique, with the Dartmoor National Park to the north which contains a wealth of beautiful scenery and Tor Bay which is a water sports mecca with two deep water marinas. Tor Bay offers shelter from the prevailing south westerly winds meaning that dinghy sailors, yachties and windsurfers flock to one of the 20 beaches along the unspoilt 22 mile stretch of coastline offering breath taking views and wonderful walks.

Description - This terrific family home occupies a magnificent location, enviably situated within walking distance of Meadfoot Beach and Daddyhole Plain, it is situated in an exclusive residential area close to the coast.
 
Located on a quiet residential road. Presented and designed with modern living in mind, the easy to manage accommodation is presented in a modern, fresh manner, each room in the house is unusually generous, which creates a spacious airy feeling. The house is set in a plot that extends to a quarter of an acre, and the present owners have improved to create easy maintenance and offer both privacy and security.

Accommodation - Electronic gates smoothly open to the recently dressed parking area, providing plenty of off street parking if you choose not to use the integral double garage. Crossing the threshold the modern accommodation seizes your attention, rarely will you find such spacious modern accommodation. The sitting room wraps around and flows into the dining room. The contemporary kitchen becomes the real heart of the home and is loosely divided into cooking and eating areas. French windows open onto the terrace beyond making it a perfect party house. Off the kitchen is a useful utility area.
 
To the first floor there are three bedrooms. Bedroom two is currently used as the master suite, with its generous bathroom and dressing area. All the bedrooms at this level either have their own terrace, or share the generous terrace overlooking the gardens. The top floor has been converted into two further bedrooms, which would make a great guest annexe or teenager's separate accommodation.
