Key features

  • EPC - D:55


Corbiere is a FINE VICTORIAN RESIDENCE, built circa 1850, being grade II listed and retaining a wealth of elegant detailing which was typical of its era. The veranda approach with creeping wistera and black grape vine leads to the graceful, yet comfortable living space. The generous driveway and garage provide ample parking, and the sheltered rear garden enjoys a westerly aspect, maximising the afternoon and early evening sunshine.

The house is conveniently placed for a host of amenities, leisure facilities and selection of highly regarded schools including the popular Torquay Academy and renowned Grammar Schools, Torbay and Mount Stuart Hospitals, Torquay Squash Club and Barton Cricket Club. Local shops at Torre are a short saunter with the main town centre and harbourside beyond, whilst The Willows shopping district is equally accessible with chain stores including Marks & Spencer, Sainsburys, Boots and Next.

EPC Rating: D


"In 1985, whilst barely in our thirties, when we first stepped into Corbiere, we instantly fell in love with its ambience and knew that this spacious home would be ideal for our three young children. Thirty nine years on and now in our retirement years, with a heavy heart we feel it’s time to downsize. The house has been so versatile and feels like it has been the heartbeat of the family. whether that being the cellar doubling as a playroom and storage area, the free-flowing living area providing the perfect space for welcoming our family and friends, or the enclosed walled sunny back garden with its ancient apple tree that produces abundant apples each year. Walking distance to both primary and secondary schools has been a great convenience as well. Although we have resisted this move as we have been so happy here, we feel that the time has come to close this chapter and give some others the opportunity in making it their haven."
