EPC Rating: E


"Villa Languard - our cherished home for a decade - has been a spacious and beautiful place to live and raise our three children. The panoramic view of the entire bay is a constant joy, whether watching sunsets with friends on the terrace, watching storms roll in over Brixham, or enjoying the best seats in the house for the air show. We have loved the large reception rooms here, especially at Christmas, giving us plenty of room for family and friends - and allowing a table tennis table to be permanently set up in the hall! Being within walking distance of Wellswood, Anstey's Cove, and Torquay harbour makes life here convenient and truly enjoyable. The elegant yet practical design of the house has made it easy to live and work from home, with plenty of places to store the boats, caravans, cars, and many surf-boards we have enjoyed over the years. It has truly been a special place to call home and we have all loved the lifestyle Villa Languard provides".
