The Property
A very spacious detached bungalow, situated on a commanding position, close to Babbacombe Road. There are three bedrooms with an en-suite to the master room, it also features generous living space with a spacious lounge looking out over a formal lawn and the dining area opening into a delightful enclosed terrace. The kitchen is of good proportions and the general layout flows very well. It has a long driveway culminating at a double garage and an adjoining workshop. For those with green fingers there's also a significant sized greenhouse. The location cannot be faulted, it's midway between Torquay's beautiful Harbourside, and Wellswood, a very nice location to both eat and shop. Major bus routes are close by.

Entrance Porch
Level access to a glazed double door entry into a porch. A uPVC double glazed sliding patio door opens into the hallway. There are twin single panel radiators, both with independent thermostatic controllers fitted. There is a double fronted storage cupboard, one side offering coat hanging space, the other side housing a Worcester combination boiler. A second single cupboard offers shelved storage space too. Doors to:

Lounge/Dining Room
A very characterful L-shaped room with front and side aspect uPVC double glazed windows offering very good natural lighting in the lounge side. The focal point is an Italian marble fireplace and hearth with a living flame gas fire within. The dining area features a set of uPVC double glazed patio doors that open out onto a very elegant south-east facing raised patio area. This dining area easily accommodates a 10-seater dining suite. Both rooms have fitted radiators both with independent thermostatic controllers.

Kitchen / Breakfast
Another light room with front and side aspect uPVC double glazed windows. There is a range of oak fitted base, eye and display units. The work surfaces are stone effect with rolled edge and with ceramic tiled splashbacks - that worksurfaces wraps around to form a breakfast bar area. The sink unit is an enamelled one-and-a-half bowl wth a monobloc mixer tap over. This sink area is nicely centred beneath the window, which in turn, overlooks the terrace. The four burner gas hob with a matching extractor hood sits atop a fan assisted oven and adjacent to a conveniently located full size dishwasher. The stacked fridge and freezer is integrated nearby. A returned door flows back through to the dining area.

There is a door into an inner lobby offering the perfect conduit to a fully plumbed utility cupboard and a casement door leading out to a recycling area.

Master Bedroom
Front and side aspect uPVC double glazed windows, a double panel radiator with an independent thermostatic controller is centred beneath the front window. There is a fitted range of light wood effect bedroom furniture, featuring two double and three single wardrobes. Door to:

This room is completely tiled in complimentary coloured ceramic, floors and walls. There is also a single panel radiator with an independent thermostatic controller fitted.

Bedroom Two
Rear and side aspect uPVC double glazed windows. This room is a good size double, also with a set of built in wardrobes. A double panel radiator with an independent thermostatic controller is also fitted.

Bedroom Three
Side aspect uPVC double glazed window. This room is a large single, some would describe it as a small double. There is a built in single wardrobe and a double panel radiator with an independent thermostatic controller fitted. This room is currently utilised as a study.

Outside
Front:

There is a significant sized driveway offering car standing for multiple vehicle, in front of the double garage or parellel to the front door. The garden wraps around the property with mostly formal lawn to the slightly raised frontage. There is a mix of raised flower beds and borders with a wide variety of fauna, including the Torquay favourite, a palm tree. A delightful centred water feature with a flower bed perimeter offers pleasant white noise whilst in the garden or on the terrace.

That terrace is paved with low brick balustrades and feeds off from the dining area and easily accommodates an outside dining set for alfresco dining opportunities.

Side:

With the bungalow set back on the plot, the rear is mostly driveway. A side garden features hardstanding for a very substantial timber workshop with a water tap nearby. A paved area adjacent to that offers compost compartments. An archway flows through from here back into the lawned front garden. On the opposite side of that lawn is another patio that houses a very large greenhouse featuring venting panels and a water tap close by.
