A wonderful semi-detached Victorian residence located in one of Torquay's most desirable locations between Torquay seafront and Cockington Country Park and just a short walk to the village shops of Walnut Road and Torquay railway station.


Sunnybrow embraces it's Victorian elegance and radiates the grandeur and proportions of a bygone age. Thanks to it's southerly aspect, high ceilings and full length original wooden sash windows all of the rooms are light and spacious. Although recently renovated many of the rooms retain period features including corniced ceilings, picture rails and marble fireplaces. This exqusite period property offers extremely well proportioned accomodation and would make a lovely family home.


Entrance is through a frosted glazed front door into an entrance lobby with high ceiling and Victorian tiled flooring which leads through another frosted glazed door into a large   L-shaped hall. The first impression is one of Victorian grandeur due to the high corniced ceiling and mouldings. The hall has doors leading off to all the principal ground floor rooms with a staircase leading to the first floor landing and benefits from a double panelled radiator. To the right is the door to the delightfully bright and spacious sitting room featuring a high corniced ceiling with ceiling rose and three original wooden floor to ceiling sash windows overlooking the enclosed garden. But without doubt the focal point has to be the original exquisite marble fire surround with the added benefit of a recently installed multifuel burner. There is also a single panel radiator, satellite TV point and Virgin telephone point. To the left of the fireplace is a glazed door which leads to a beautiful sunny conservatory featuring original windows, fully tiled floor and a part glazed door leading to the garden. Like the sitting room the dining room has a high corniced ceiling with a floor to ceiling wooden sash window overlooking the garden and features an original marble fire surround. There is also a double panelled radiator and satellite TV point. On the other side of the hall is the kitchen superbly fitted with a matching range of white base units and granite worktops, integral dishwasher, twin electric ovens, four ring induction hob and modern stainless steel extractor canopy. There is a range of powerpoints and spotlights as well as a unique stainless steel canopy suspended from the high celing featuring LED lighting and downlighters. Behind the door is a large modern vertical radiator and, with space for an American style fridge freezer this really is a lovely kitchen any chef would be proud of. At the end of the hall there is a glazed door leading to a utility area with tiled floor, double panelled radiator, plumbing for a washing machine and space for a tumble dryer. Off the utility area are four doors. The first leads to a study/fifth bedroom with high ceilings, double glazed upvc sash window overlooking the driveway, original fitted storage cupboards, double panelled radiator and an alcove with downlighters and satellite TV point. The second door leads to a fully tiled bathroom with shower, washbasin, toilet, shaver point, modern vertical radiator and original glazed sash window. Door three is the part glazed back door leading to the private gated driveway with parking for four cars. The final door is part glazed and leads to a staircase down to a basement with three large rooms which is currently being used for storage. There is a sink and plumbing in one room which also houses the central heating boiler and hot water tank and has steps leading to an external door to the driveway.

Upstairs there is a family bathroom on a small landing featuring a jacuzzi style bath with wall mounted shower over, shower screen and fitted units with toilet and washbasin, spotlights, original frosted glazed sash window and small radiator.

Bedroom two is a large bright double room featuring high ceiling, picture rail, original fireplace with marble surround and a floor to ceiling wooden sash window which leads out onto a small balcony with lovely seaviews to Torquay Harbour. There is a single panelled radiator and satelitte TV point. Bedroom Three is also a large double room with high ceiling, picture rail, original fireplace with marble surround, original wooden sash window and satellite TV point.
