  • EPC - D:57


Behind the discrete facade of this MATURE DETACHED CHALET BUNGALOW lies a beautiful home with open views to the rear toward the Churches of St Marychurch. The versatile accommodation affords primary living space to the ground floor, with additional double bedroom and bathroom to the first floor. Particular attributes of Hillcrest are the generous kitchen/dining room enjoying the open views with direct access to the attractive garden, and EXCEPTIONAL GARAGE/WORKSHOP complete with vaulted ceiling and tiled floor, being the envy of any car enthusiast or hobbyist.

Aptly named, Hillcrest stands on the crest of the hill, just half a mile virtually level walk to St Marychurch pedestrianised shopping precinct. St Marychurch retains a village ambience, with wide range of independent shops and and chain stores, Churches, medical centres, dental practice, Post Office and TSB Bank. Beyond St Marychurch is the picturesque Babbacombe Downs with shingle beaches below, and equally accessible are Cary parks with bowls and tennis clubs, Babbacombe Corinthian Sailing Club and Torquay Golf Club.

EPC Rating: D


"When we took ownership of Hillcrest back in 2000 it was in need of renovation and redesign to make it the home we envisaged, and twenty four years on we have enjoyed many wonderful years. There is so much we will miss, and know that new owners will enjoy the westerly evening sun streaming into the garden studio, family gatherings in the kitchen, and pottering in the garage like we have over the years. The position has been a big factor in us remaining for so long. St Marychurch is a pleasant saunter with everything you could need, and for anyone with children there are many schools close by."
