Key features

  • EPC - D (58)


Open views across the town toward the sea at Tor Bay are just one attribute of this FINE DETACHED COASTAL HOUSE, set on the prestigious wooded hillside of the Warberries. Luneville is discreetly set behind a sweeping gated driveway, having been lovingly maintained by our client over their twenty three years of ownership, beautifully presented and affording a versatile home which flows into the sunny gardens.

Wellswood, with its village ambiance, lies just past the end of Lower Warberry Road with well supported St Matthias Church, highly regarded Ilsham Primary School and parade of shops including Co-op, delicatessen, chemist, post office and Kents Pub. Warberry Primary School stands at the top of the hillside, whilst Torquay town and harbour can be found at the base of the hill, with marina and sea front promenade beyond.

EPC Rating: D


"Luneville has been my home for twenty three years, and given me so many wonderful memories. The house is versatile and could be utilised in many different ways. Up until my recent retirement, I ran my upholstery business from home in the workshop, which gave a perfect space independent from the house, although it could equally revert to a garage, or potentially be incorporated into the living space. People say it, but I genuinely have lovely neighbours. Luneville is a great position, near enough to local schools and amenities, but far enough to be peaceful. The rear faces southerly, with the garden, balcony, and principal rooms all basking in sunshine and enjoying the open view toward the sea. I will miss Luneville greatly, but I feel it is the right time to downsize and have a change of lifestyle entering retirement."
