The Property
Situated in a beautiful side street, far from the madding crowd, and offering beautiful views over Torquay and Tor Bay, this home has it all. The accommodation cannot be faulted, it features four double bedrooms, one on the ground floor, two lounges, one with a large dining area that opens out onto a very private courtyard. There is a fifth bedroom/study, a family bathroom and even a ground floor wet room. There is an opportunity to have a self contained annexe area, but even as is, it flows beautifully. The outside space offers an enclosed front garden, with views that has secure car standing for two vehicles, and a very low maintenance rear courtyard that is both sunny and secluded. This home is in very good condition and the location cannot be faulted. Being close to the Grafton steps offers you a direct route to town in around seven minutes, the No.64 bus brings you back up the hill and quite close to home. This road is very low traffic, all I could hear was the birds...
