EPC Rating: F


"When the opportunity to purchase Overcrag came up in 2014, we knew we had to make it our home. We were already living on Rock End, but there are only a select few properties with such a dramatic position benefiting from uninterupted sea views. The building was in its original state, and over the years we have enhanced it to meet our needs, but appreciate with a house such as this it is the plot which is the attraction, and a new owner may wish to redesign to their own requirements. In our opinion the location is unrivalled in Torbay. Not only do we enjoy the outstanding views, but we are a matter of minutes' walk to restaurants, theatres, Torquay Marina, or Meadfoot Beach. We are fortunate to own a second property and therefore can offer Overcrag chain free."
