Key features

Standing in a substantial plot with attractive gardens and heated swimming pool, this FINE DETACHED HOUSE presents a simply beautiful home in one of Torquay's favoured districts. A particular feature is the extensive parking which includes TRIPLE GARAGING, perfect for those requiring space for family vehicles, and additional room for a boat, caravan or motorhome. The interior does not disappoint, centred around an impressive reception hall and turned staircase, tastefully presented with generous room dimensions typical of its era. The loft presents potential to further extend (subject to required consent). Jacks Lane is enviably located on the fringe of Torquay making easy access both in and out of the town. Local shops at Barton Hill Road are a matter of minutes away, with more comprehensive amenities found nearby at the Willows, home to a host of national stores including M&S, Sainsbury's, Boots and Next.
EPC Rating: D


"We always had our eye on the old house and when it came to the market twenty four years ago we knew it would make a perfect home for our young family. We moved in the November, got the swimming pool up and running in the April and don't think the children dried off until the autumn! Over the years we've made many magical memories, and as time and money permitted, we changed and upgraded to our taste and requirements. For us, the parking has been vital, with numerous family vehicles and boats, it has been such an advantage. Time has moved on, children have flown the nest, and we feel it is now right to downsize alongside a change in lifestyle. It will certainly be a sad day when we shut the door for the last time."
