Handsome detached Victorian villa offering immaculate accommodation set in grounds of just over quarter of an acre with lovely far reaching views

Location

Albion House is situated in a quiet private road of just four properties on Wolborough Hill, a Conservation Area and the most sought after area on the south side of Newton Abbot. Wolborough Hills' success as a residential area is due to Lord Devon's vision for creating "a most desirable place to live".

The bustling market town of Newton Abbot is located between the Dartmoor National Park and the bays and beaches of the south Devon coast and therefore is well situated for all the leisure activities for which the area is renowned. It also offers all everyday amenities, a mainline railway station (direct service to London Paddington commuter train 2.5hrs) and convenient road links via the A380 dual carriageway linking to the M5 at Exeter. Shaldon and Teignmouth are both 6 miles away and are known for their delightful beaches. The Teign Estuary offers moorings for yachts and dinghy sailing and boating. In the immediate vicinity of the property there are a number of footpaths and trails to Decoy Park and Bakers Park.

Description

Albion House is a very handsome detached Victorian villa offering immaculately presented accommodation with light streaming through the beautiful sash windows typical of this era. The rooms are elegantly proportioned with the principal rooms at the front of the house having bay windows enjoying the wonderful views across to Torquay and Dartmoor. The imposing front door leads into a hall with double doors into the staircase hall leading into the dining room and the beautiful double drawing room, with a bay window, fireplace and divided by an arch. Steps lead down to a conservatory with French door to the side terrace and leading to a laundry room and a cloakroom. A media room has a window with shutters and 2 full height original cupboards. In addition the media room could be a study or winter sitting room. The bespoke kitchen / breakfast room is lovely and light, being triple aspect with travertine floor, 2 oven oil fired AGA, 5 ring gas range, granite work tops and splash backs, and a door to the back yard.

The basement provides a gym room and a drying / storage room. Stairs lead up to a half landing and a shower room / cloakroom, further cloakroom and a study / additional bedroom with a built in wardrobe and storage above, window with plantation shutters.

GARDENS AND GROUNDS
Pillars and an electric gate lead to the gravelled drive and parking area for several cars. A limestone wall encircles the house and grounds. The level garden features box balls and a paved circular terrace providing a seating area in front of a pretty summer house from which to enjoy the wonderful views to woodland and fields across the valley. The boundary in front of the house is planted with mature shrubs including bamboo, pittosporum and acacia. The house is adorned with wisteria over the conservatory, a passion flower, and a jasmine over the garage. The yard at the back of the house has further double gates into St Marys Road, leading to a detached former coach house / stables currently used as a garage which offers potential for further accommodation subject to necessary permissions.
