Orestone House is a brand new family home in one of the most desirable areas of Torquay. Finished to a high standard the accommodation is bright and spacious, with natural light flooding the rooms, and south-facing panoramic views over the sea at the front.

The accommodation is set over three floors of approximately 4300 sq. ft. of striking living space. On the ground floor is the entrance hall with stairs to the first floor, access to the garage and the fifth bedroom with an ensuite shower room, a cloakroom and boiler room. The first floor has a spacious living room with wood floors and bifold doors to the balcony, dining room, again with bifold doors, and open plan kitchen with a breakfast island, seamless worktops, soft close doors and drawers and integrated appliances by Siemens, a study, garden room with bifold doors to a paved terrace and the garden, a utility room and further cloakroom. On the second floor are four bedrooms, all ensuite.

Forming part of the South West Coastal footpath, Ilsham Marine Drive hugs the coastline of the headland promontory, linking Meadfoot Beach with Wellswood, sought after for its charming shopping and dining and for its village style ambience. Hopes Nose, the most northerly part of Tor Bay, offers opportunity for fishing.

Named by Trip Advisor (Travellers Choice Awards 2016) as one of the top destinations for travel within the UK, Torquay offers a dream destination for enjoyment of a seaside lifestyle with spectacular coastal scenery, clean beaches, sheltered sailing waters and a 440-berth Marina. The town has a diverse range of amenities for shopping and an ever improving restaurant culture ranging from Michelin star dining to beachfront bars and cafes.

Communication links include a direct rail service to London Paddington linking with the intercity network at Newton Abbot and the recently opened South Devon Highway, bypassing the village of Kingskerswell, improving journey time to Exeter and the M5 motorway. Exeter International airport operates flights to business and holiday destinations, with a daily service to London City Airport.

Orestone House faces due south, overlooking Torbay and the English Channel. Directly opposite is Berry Head on the other side of the Bay and to the right, views across the water of Brixham, Paignton and Torquay. A balcony, accessed from the living and dining rooms, makes the most of these beautiful views. To the front of the property is a parking area for several cars and access to the garage, surrounded by a low stone wall. To the side and rear of the property is a walled garden, mainly laid to lawn with established trees, and a paved terrace, perfect for alfresco dining, accessed from the garden room.
