A beautifully presented FOUR BEDROOM DETACHED HOUSE set in this peaceful, highly regarded cul-de-sac setting on the fringe of the Cockington Valley. Offering well planned family accommodation which has been a happy home for our client for almost 14 years. The spacious accommodation offers two reception rooms, a kitchen/breakfast room which overlooks the lovely rear garden, as well as four good size double bedrooms (two with en-suite facilities) and a shower room/WC.  Nestled within well-tended, manageable landscaped gardens the property benefits from a bright southerly aspect to the front enjoying views over the surrounding area, across to the fields on the hillside of Cockington, and is complimented by driveway parking for two vehicles and an attached double garage.  Solar panels are installed to help minimise the everyday running costs of this fine modern home.

The property is enviably positioned in one of Torquay’s prestigious locations close to Torquay's Sea Front and the picturesque Cockington Country Park which boasts beautiful walks through its circa 460 acres of woodland, meadows and lakes with the popular thatched Drum Inn providing a welcome stop for refreshment. Local 'village' shops at Walnut Road are just a short saunter away, whilst Torquay’s Train Station is equally accessible, just one stop from the main line at Newton Abbot with links to most major cities. A selection of highly regarded schools, including national recognised Grammar Schools are all found within a short drive.


"When looking to move in 2010 we decided to make a lifestyle move and relocate to South Devon, both because we loved the area and to be closer to our family. Upon visiting Torquay we familiarised ourselves with the area and were immediately attracted to Chelston and Cockington, with it being an established setting, close to the sea front and the beautiful Cockington Valley and having the ‘village’ shops in Walnut Road easily accessible, adequately catering for our everyday needs. When we found a sizeable modern house in Forgeway Close we knew that we had found our new home….and have happily enjoyed living here for almost 14 wonderful years. Now realising that the time is right to downsize, the difficult decision has been made to sell our beautiful home, but this will give any new owner the opportunity of experiencing how lovely the property is and the tranquillity of its location.
