Key features

  • EPC - C:73


The Mount is a FINE DETACHED HOUSE, sympathetically extended with the principal living space flowing onto extensive sheltered decked terracing and full width balcony overlooking the attractive tiered gardens. The lower lawn leads to a fenced section boasting a beautiful oak tree and a haven for nature. Our client’s have enhanced and redesigned the property over their thirteen year ownership to provide a striking family home.

The Lincombes is one of Torbay’s most prestigious residential districts, occupying a prominent location above Torquay's bustling harbour, yacht marina and sea front beyond. Wellswood amenities can be found at the base of the hill to the north east, retaining a village ambiance with post office, pub, delicatessen, renowned primary school and well supported St Matthias Church. Picturesque walks through the picturesque Ilsham Valley, Meadfoot Beach and Daddyhole Plain link Wellswood to the harbour.

EPC Rating: C


"The Mount has been our happy home since 2011 and we will take with us so many wonderful memories. Our children have now grown up, and whilst we adore the house it is time to downsize. We will certainly miss the garden and the evening sun setting off to the west. We have left the bottom of the garden for nature, but there is great potential for keen gardeners to utilise the space in a more formal way. We love the Lincombes and fortunately already found our next home nearby, so we're able sell without any onward chain. The location, in our opinion is the best in the bay, set on the hillside above the bustle of the harbour, Wellswood shops, and Meadfoot Beach. We are keen walkers and have an abundance of beautiful walks from the doorstep. Our dog particularly likes Meadfoot Beach and the pathways through the Lincombe Woods."
