Full description

Tenure: Freehold

This attractive DETACHED BUNGALOW stands in a peaceful cul-de-sac in the very popular Cockington area of Torquay, being very close to the picturesque Cockington Country Park and within a short journey of Torquay Seafront and the Railway Station.


The property offers well planned versatile accommodation now requiring a degree of modernisation but presents a wonderful opportunity for those seeking a home in which they can inject their own taste and style.  There is also the possibility of developing the bungalow further, subject to obtaining any relevant consents required.  The bungalow is set in private, mature landscaped lawned gardens and views across to the rolling hillsides of the top of the Cockington Valley can also be enjoyed from the rear.


A host of amenities are within easy reach including the local parade of shops at nearby Walnut Road, the well regarded schools, including Torquay Boys' and Girls' Grammar Schools which are just minutes' journey away and the town centre and Torquay harbour are approximately two miles distant.
