Situation - Nestling neatly between Torquay and Brixham in the sheltered and beautiful waters of Torbay, Paignton is at the very heart of the English Riviera. This area gained its reputation as a place to see and be seen during the days of Queen Victoria when it was compared to the French and Italian Rivieras because of its sunny climate, breath- taking coastal views and long, sandy beaches. However Paignton had already been around for a long time before the Victorians and it was even mentioned in the Domesday Book.

Today the town is still a lively tourist resort but has a life of its own which lasts all year round. Its busy town centre has all of the local amenities one would expect including shops, restaurants, bars, train station as well as its own Palace Theatre, and the sea front with its long wide promenade, sandy beaches and pier. There is a choice of well-regarded schools in the area including Torquay and Churston Grammar Schools.

Further afield the regional capital of Exeter is now within easy reach thanks to the new South Devon Highway, and provides all of the big brand shopping and dining experiences that one could wish for.

Description - Constructed during the reign of King Edward this spacious family home retains many of the features and charm that make homes of this era so popular. Occupying a slightly elevated position affords some lovely views over the surrounding area, including sea views from the upper floors. The property is approached from a quiet lane off Maidenway Road, there is driveway parking and a double garage. Internally accommodation briefly comprises: Porch and entrance hall, large, modern kitchen/family/breakfast room with dining room/conservatory off, utility, sitting room open to lounge, 4 double bedrooms (master en suite), bathroom, and a loft room/study or potential 5th bedroom. Outside there is a level lawned garden and decked terrace.

Accommodation - The front door leads to the porch and through a further glazed door to the entrance hall where the original period staircase rises to the first floor, and there is a cloakroom/WC plus under-stair storage. The sitting room has glazed double doors leading to a decked terrace and garden beyond. The lounge is open to the sitting room and has a large bay window allowing plenty of light and a fireplace with wooden mantle. The impressive and modern kitchen/breakfast room is open to a family room and is the heart of this family home. There is a range of wood fronted units above and below the granite work surfaces. The Stoves range cooker with induction hob has an extractor over, integrated dishwasher and space for an American style fridge/freezer, peninsular breakfast bar with further storage. The family area has room for a sofa, and both rooms are open to the dining room conservatory which has space for the largest of dining tables, making a great entertaining space. Doors lead out to the garden and parking area.

To the first floors are 4 double bedrooms and family bathroom. The master bedroom has a large bay window giving some spectacular views over Paignton, across the bay to Brixham and the surrounding countryside. The en suite is fully tiled with a modern white suite including a large shower cubicle. Bedroom two also has some fine views, bedroom three has a study/dressing area and doors to a balcony again enjoying the views, the family bathroom has a modern white suite with chrome fittings and heated towel rail.
