Rock Edge is a fabulous detached three bedroom residence with outstanding views across Torbay which really must be seen to be fully appreciated.  The property occupies an enviable position within one of Torbay's most sought after locations and provides easy access to the town centre, harbour and the shops and restaurants nearby.

Rock Edge sits within a generous plot of 0.33 acre and offers garaging and parking to both the front and rear of the house.  Accommodation is laid out thoughtfully to make the most of the wonderful views from primarily the large reception rooms on the entry level.  The property is presented to an exceptional standard throughout and has been constantly updated during the current owners time of occupation.  There are two large reception rooms, a study or fourth bedroom, kitchen / dining room, cloakroom / wc and side conservatory.  Downstairs, there are three bedrooms, the master with en suite facilities and a modern four piece bathroom suite.  To the side of the house there is access to a useful large storage area where the gas boiler is situated.

The main garden is located to the rear of the house.  The sun terrace directly to the rear of the house provides truly breathtaking views across Torbay towards Livermead, Churston Ferrers and Brixham.  Access down to the lower section of garden is obtained via a series of paths with colourful rockeries and seating areas.  The lower section of garden is predominantly lawned with established shrubs and apple trees and there is access to the Coastal Path and Daddyhole Plain via two gates which are private to residents.

We were searching for a coastal property nearly 26 years ago and viewed a number with views.  Despite it being a larger garden than we needed, when we saw Rock Edge we both fell in love with it.  The sea views were simply breathtaking and we enjoy them as much today as we did the first time we visited.

Over the years we have constantly updated the property to modern standards and although we have considered extending upwards, we have always felt that the accommodation on offer provided us with everything we needed.  The close proximity to the town centre, coast path walks, access to Daddyhole Plain and the marina was a key factor for us buying, particularly as it is only a short five minute walk down the hill.

We hope that the new buyers will enjoy Rock Edge as much as we have, it certainly is a very special home.

On entering the property it is very clear that this is a house of exceptional quality and is immaculately presented throughout.  The accommodation is set to a 'reverse level' plan to make the very most of the outstanding views from the main receptions.  From the entrance hallway there is a cloakroom / wc and a useful storage area with room to hang up coats and store shoes.  The main two reception rooms take the form of a large 'L' shaped living room affording stunning bay views and a modern bespoke kitchen / dining room, perfect for modern day entertaining.  Both rooms interconnect each other and provide a smooth transition between receptions.  Just off the kitchen is a useful pantry and side conservatory room leading out to a private breakfast area.  From the living room, there is a fourth bedroom or study room to suit one's requirements.

From the entrance hallway stairs lead down to a spacious landing area.  There are three bedrooms to this level comprising two doubles and a single.  All of the bedrooms afford views over the rear garden out to Torbay.  The master bedroom is a generous size double with fitted wardrobes and access into a modern three piece en suite shower room.  The family bathroom is a large modern four piece suite of exceptional quality with tiled flooring and tiling to half ceiling height.  To the side of the house is a boiler room which provides useful storage.

It should also be noted that there is potential (subject to planning permission) to extend into the loft to create additional living space should one wish. 

Rock Edge sits within a generous size plot of 0.33 acre.  To the front of the house is a brick paved driveway providing private off road parking for a couple of vehicles and leading to a good size garage with lighting, power and an electric up and over door.  The front garden is terraced to two levels with low maintenance in mind as the main garden is to the rear of the house.  Should one require additional driveway parking this area could easily be adapted to suit this.

As previously mentioned, the main garden is to the rear of the house.  A pretty side breakfast area with path leads around to the rear garden where the view and sun terrace are prominent.  The sun terrace is extremely generous in size and affords panoramic views across Torbay.  These are views with a real wow factor!  A series of pathways interspersed with sitting areas and well stocked, colourful rockeries leads down to the main garden.  This area is mainly laid to lawn and largely level with a range of apple trees and colourful borders.  There is also secondary off road parking and a side gate providing access to a lane connecting the coastal path.

Rock Edge is situated on the highly sought after Rock End Avenue area of Torquay.  The property affords wonderful views over the bay and is a short walk down to Torquay town centre, the Marina and the Royal Torbay Yacht Club. There are wonderful coastal walks with a variety of sandy beaches, pretty coves and attractive headlands in both directions and direct access to the footpath from the houses in this area. Cockington Village & Country Park is also within a short drive from house. Torquay town centre offers an excellent variety of established shops, amenities, bars and restaurants. Torquay Railway station is also a short drive from the property. Trains connect the main Penzance to Paddington line at Newton Abbot with train time to London taking around 2 hours 45 minutes from there.  Exeter Airport is 28 miles away taking around 45 minutes via the South Devon Expressway.
