The Vineyard presents a unique PERIOD HOME of great charm and character featuring EXTENSIVE GARAGING AND WORKSHOP space, perfect for the motor enthusiast. The deceptive accommodation affords versatile living space, currently arranged in a traditional four bedroom design and complemented with a large ROOF TERRACE facing a westerly aspect with views across the surrounding area. The property is enviably tucked back from the hustle and bustle in a peaceful setting, yet swift access to the vibrant harbourside, yacht marina and town centre. Waterside bars, restaurants, Princess Theatre and array of leisure activities can all be found on the doorstep, whilst following the sea front promenade takes you to the flagship Torre Abbey Sands Beach, historic Torre Abbey, Torquay Train Station and leisure centre. Walking a short distance in the opposite direction takes you to Meadfoot Beach, one of Torquay's most picturesque locations and a haven for water sports.
EPC Rating: D


"The Vinery is a unique property and been a perfect home for me over the past eleven years. As a motorcycle enthusiast, the garage was a big feature and provides a perfect space for those with similar interest or storage needs. One thing I will miss the most is the location which is extremely convenient for either Torquay harbour and town, or the opposite direction to Meadfoot Beach. It is with a heavy heart I am making a move, but I feel the time is right to downsize."


An open storm porch leads to the spacious ENTRANCE HALL with tiled floor and open arched access to the impressive principal living space. The SITTING ROOM is a large, yet comfortable room with oak flooring and character wood burning stove set on a paved slate hearth. Two sash windows provide an open outlook over the surrounding area. A Versatile LOUNGE/HOME OFFICE/GROUND FLOOR BEDROOM provides options for the new owners, enjoying dual windows and an open outlook. The KITCHEN/DINING ROOM is a wonderful family space with the dining area boasting patio doors and tiled floor which runs through to the KITCHEN. Loosely divided by a breakfast bar, the kitchen has a comprehensive range of units with marble effect work surfaces and brick tiled splash backs. Space for a free standing range cooker. An extensive UTILITY provides further generous storage, work tops and space for white goods. From the utility area is a CLOAKROOM and internal access to the extensive garaging. An open plan staircase leading off the kitchen rises to the FIRST FLOOR LANDING. The first floor provides FOUR GENEROUS BEDROOMS, the main bedroom featuring an EN-SUITE SHOWER ROOM with skylight. A large FAMILY BATHROOM is beautifully appointed with double ended bath, separate double shower, WC, wash basin and extensive tiling to both floor and walls.


Double five bar gates open to the GENEROUS DRIVEWAY affording parking for several vehicles, sheltered by a mature Silver Birch tree. The EXTENSIVE GARAGING & WORKSHOP is a particular feature of The Vineyard, securely accessed via a remote roller double door. A perfect space for the motor enthusiast, or those requiring considerable space for storage, rarely found with homes of this nature and location. A large DECKED TERRACE is positioned to the first floor, accessed via double doors from bedroom 4, facing a westerly aspect and commanding open views across the surrounding area.
