Key features

  • EPC - E:53


Set in attractive walled gardens, Belle Vue Lodge is a FINE DETACHED COASTAL VICTORIAN RESIDENCE enviably placed a mere saunter to Paignton’s vibrant Esplanade, Paignton Beach and Green. Belle Vue Lodge presents a home of distinction which has been lovingly renovated with exacting detail by our client over their ten year ownership to retain the charm and character of the era whilst tastefully fusing conveniences and style of modern life. The ground floor ANNEXE provides perfect auxiliary space for a dependent relative, home office suite, or potential to generate additional letting income, although equally adaptable as additional rooms to the main house.

The property is virtually a pebble throw from Paignton Beach and the picturesque South West Coast Path heading north toward Preston Sands and Torquay, or south toward Goodrington Sands and Brixham. Set in the very heart of the English Riviera, a wide range of amenities, leisure activities, and beautiful scenery are all easily accessible. The train station and town centre with post office and banks are also within walking distance.


"Ten years ago I took on Belle Vue Lodge as a project and I must say she was in a rather sorry state, but I could immediately see the potential in making a magnificent home. The location is exceptional, and the house is perfect for anyone like me who wants to be quietly tucked away yet close to beautiful beaches, stunning walks, lovely restaurants and bars. It has been a privilege to live here and I hope I have done the old house justice in restoring it for many more years to come."


A glazed entrance door with top light opens to the porcelain tiled HALL with CLOAKROOM, leading through to the main RECEPTION HALL with elegant oak turned staircase with storage underneath. A door and staircase lead down to the CELLAR which houses the boiler (newly fitted in August 2023) and we understand our clients have fully tanked this area for dry storage. The reception hall is open plan to the DINING ROOM with elegant high ceiling, cornice work, ceiling rose, tall sash window and a connecting door to the annexe. The SITTING ROOM is an equally elegant room with triple full height sash windows forming a bay which overlooks and open to the extensive terracing. Limestone fireplace with glass front and remote control log effect flame gas fire. High ceiling with cornice work and central ceiling rose. SUN ROOM/BREAKFAST ROOM with door leading out to the tiled terracing, enjoying a view beyond the garden to the sea front and the sea at Tor Bay towards Torquay.


The kitchen/diner is a striking room, recently refurbished with impressive sleek black units topped with matching work surfaces, sink, and engineered oak flooring. Corner carousel unit, soft close retractable storage drawers, larder cupboard, integrated dishwasher and provisions for American style fridge/freezer and range cooker (both appliances could be available under separate negotiation). Lofty ceiling with detailed cornice work and ceiling rose. Dual aspect with picture window and door overlooking and leading out to the extensive terracing.


From the Reception Hall stairs rise to the First Floor Landing with central ceiling rose and tall window allowing ample natural light. The PRINCIPAL BEDROOM enjoys a bay with triple arched sash windows commanding the finest view from the property over the private garden to Paignton sea front, pier, and across Tor Bay toward Torquay. BEDROOM 2 has a dual aspect enjoying the sea view. We understand that the original black marble fireplace remains and safely covered up by the current owners purely due to positioning of the bed. BEDROOM 3 is an equally impressive double bedroom. Leading down to the Lower Landing with porthole window and loft access to a generous store room with matching porthole window. BEDROOM 4 provides a further double bedroom, and BEDROOM 5 currently utilised as a home office. The beautifully appointed FAMILY BATHROOM offers both a double ended bath with cascade shower attachment taps and a corner double shower with body spray and rain head. Vanity unit and WC.


The Annexe benefits from its own private front door, although connected to the main house via doors to the dining room and hall. The private entrance opens to the RECEPTION HALL with porcelain tiled floor running through to the KITCHEN and leading off is the SHOWER ROOM and SITTING ROOM/BEDROOM.


Aluminium remote controlled sliding electric gates opens to the generous brick paviour driveway providing ample parking and mature flower bed. Gentle steps lead down to the extensive terracing in porcelain slabs which runs across the approach to the annexe and wrap around the perimeter of the main house with the primary areas directly outside the kitchen and sitting room. A matching pedestrian gate to the vehicular gate opens to Belle Vue Road. From the terrace sloped and gentle stepped access leads down to the lower lawn, fully enclosed with natural sandstone walled boundaries and mature shrubs with central palm tree. To the side elevation, outside the dining room, is a gravelled area of garden, mature Bramley apple tree and timber garden shed.
