Key features

  • EPC - C:71


Great Hill House is a FINE DETACHED RESIDENCE set at the head of a cul-de-sac behind electric gates taking full advantage of its elevated location on the southern slope of Great Hill with panoramic views over Torquay toward the sea at Tor Bay. Constructed circa 2004 by a local building contractor of repute, and purchased by our client’s family from new, the house affords a bespoke design with the primary living space on the upper levels to maximise the view and direct access to the rear garden, whilst the entrance level would admirably suit a dedicated home work set up, or dependent relative wishing an element of independence yet remaining connected.

Sutton Mews stands on the outskirts of Torquay yet conveniently placed for access to the 'village' amenities at St Marychurch where Torquay Golf Club can be found. The pretty Watcombe Cove lies at the base of the wooded hillside by crossing the nearby Teignmouth Road where the South Devon Coastal Footpaths can be joined toward Shaldon and Teignmouth to the north or Torquay and wider Torbay to the South.

EPC Rating: C


"My late father and stepmother bought Great Hill House when newly built in 2004. They were looking for a stunning sea view accommodation that suited their tastes and offered considerable space and luxury... no easy task! John Lake Estate Agents happened to be selling a new development that absolutely fitted their criteria, and the rest they say is history. They absolutely loved their home, and for twenty years enjoyed the fine views, the beautiful garden, and space enough for them both to work from home and to have their independent areas for their hobbies and pastimes. As a family we all loved Great Hill House and will no doubt shed a tear when the time comes for us to close the door for the last time. But it is time now to let someone else put their stamp on the house and to enjoy making wonderful memories of their own in this fine abode."
