The Property
This beautiful Executive style five double bedroom family home was built approximately 15-years ago by Midas Homes and is located close to a peaceful countryside setting. This home backs onto a delightful bridleway that adjoins open pastureland within the popular village of Marldon. Torquay is just a short ten minute drive where you will find lovely safe beaches, promenade walks and Harbourside facilities.
Internally it features good family living space, with a spacious lounge opening onto a very private patio, a large kitchen breakfast room, utility room, dining room and study. Upstairs features five double bedrooms, two with en-suite facilities, and a family size bathroom. The gardens are fully landscaped with the emphasis on low maintenance for busy lifestyles.
The location cannot be faulted as it's situated at the bottom of the cul-de-sac with minimal traffic (and noise). For families there is the advantage of both Boys and Girls Grammar Schools being just a ten minute drive away, and with a good Primary School locally. For leisure, lovely country walks are close at hand, with Totnes being within a twenty minute journey.
