Nestled on the lower slopes of the prestigious Warberries hillside and enjoying southerly facing SEA VIEWS into Tor Bay, this striking PENTHOUSE APARTMENT forms part of a gated Grade II Listed period villa, sympathetically converted into quality apartments.  Accessed via a key operated lift that enables  direct access into the private reception hall, the apartment provides extensive accommodation circa 1600 sq ft, with triple balconies, allocated parking, and use of the beautiful communal gardens.

At the base of the hill lies Torquay town centre, vibrant harbour, and marina, affording a wide selection of shops, waterside restaurants, and sea front promenade passing the Princess Theatre toward Torre Abbey Sands.  The property is admirably suited to those seeking a unique home in the very heart of the English Riviera, yet tucked back in a peaceful setting.  

EPC Rating: C


"The penthouse has given us a lifestyle, having moved across the bay from Brixham. When we first viewed we were sold on the location, views, private lift access, and size of the living space. However, we had to create the balconies and have also added professionally installed air conditioning to the southerly facing main rooms, particularly beneficial with the recent hot weather! We will be very sorry to leave, but with recent ill health we have decided to move closer to our family, we just wish we could pick up the apartment and move it!"
