DESCRIPTION Peacefully situated in a tucked away location at the head of a cul-de-sac, at the heart of leafy Wellswood, Tormohun Cottage forms part of a Victorian villa that offers deceptively spacious and characterful accommodation set within idyllic mature private gardens. Having been a well-loved home for over 30 years, and it is easy to see why, the property would now benefit from some enhancement but offers potential buyers the rare opportunity of purchasing a lovely home in a most convenient location.

Local amenities are on the doorstep with the ever desirable Wellswood village offering a selection of local shops, restaurants, church and primary school. Scenic walks through the Ilsham Valley to Anstey's Cove and Meadfoot Beach can also be enjoyed nearby and the town centre, harbourside and yacht marina are approximately two miles away. Torquay has good communication links, both by road and rail.
