***SOLD STC - SIMILAR PROPERTIES REQUIRED***A first class example of an elegant period detached residence constructed during the 1930's to a very high specification that includes one of the finest craftsman made mahogany carved staircases that our company has seen for many years.

Located in a due south situation commanding superb sea views over Tor Bay from all main rooms and the garden. This delightful home has clearly been built to a high specification as it is rate to find a size graded Delabole slate roof and carpentry to such a high standard.
