SITUATION 4 Hermosa is positioned in a prestigious elevated location overlooking Torquay and beyond. The apartment is within this grand building and is accessed from a leafy residential road. The property is also with striking distance of the town centre and seafront. Situated on the picturesque South Devon coast, Torquay is one of three beautiful towns forming the sheltered Torbay and is renowned for the warm climate, clear bathing waters and clean air. The local beaches form a golden arc around the bay with shingle coves scattered nearby. The town provides a wonderful selection of leisure facilities ranging from excellent shopping, waterside restaurants and theatre through to comprehensive water sports, golf and scenic walks along South Devon's coastal footpaths. Torquay is also favoured with deep water mooring facilities at the marina. The cities of Exeter and Plymouth are also easily accessible from Torquay and approximately 12 miles to the north lies the magnificent Dartmoor National Park. Torquay's train station is just one stop for the main line Newton Abbot station with direct links to the major cities. It is understandable why so many people are attracted to a new lifestyle in the 'English Riviera'  

DECRIPTION The Spanish word 'Hermosa' translates as 'beautiful' which describes this stunning apartment perfectly. The accommodation comprises the principal reception rooms of a luxurious and elegant mid-19th century villa on the English Riviera. Although currently used as a much loved, comfortable family home Hermosa would also make an impressive pied-a-terre from which to entertain guests or a perhaps a permanent lifestyle change in which to retreat from city life. Hermosa boasts many original features including high ceilings, large bay windows, ornate cornices and roses, magnificent marble fire places and exquisite chandeliers in every room. The apartment is accessed at ground floor level giving good access for people with all levels of mobility. On entering the apartment, the Carrara marble floor, the hand rolled and hand blown Crown glass panelled door and the rare Muranese glass window in the spacious entrance porch immediately set the scene for this imposing yet welcoming home. This leads to an expansive L-shaped hallway with wood panelling and brass chandelier, creating a sophisticated and elegant reception area. Hermosa is tastefully decorated to a very high standard, incorporating several traditional style radiators as well as wood panelling in the principal rooms. Modern conveniences that give it the highly efficient energy rating it holds include double glazed sash windows and a new boiler. The kitchen has a vintage feel with wooden freestanding furniture as well as fitted units and an impressive Creda Colonial range style cooker. The original hand rolled glass sash window provides the perfect backdrop to a welcoming seating/breakfast area. The bathroom boasts quality fittings and has scope to be separated into a family bathroom and an en-suite shower/wet room for the principle bedroom. The two large bedrooms are equally elegant. The property was once owned by Labour Leader Michael Foot's family and, more recently, by a renowned miniatures artist.

OUTSIDE The property is accessed directly from the entrance driveway which offers a private parking space. The communal garden is beautifully landscaped and offers delightful seating areas and lovely views. 

SERVICES Mains water and drainage, gas central heating and mains electricity.
