Key features

  • EPC - C (RATING 77)


Set in a striking coastal location on Torquay's exclusive Ilsham Marine Drive, this APARTMENT forms part of an iconic development commanding DRAMATIC SEA VIEWS from its third floor position across Tor Bay with Meadfoot Beach in the foreground. Extensive landscaped and wooded grounds extend to circa seven acres, affording a selection of tranquil seating areas for residents and their visitors’ enjoyment. 'Kilmorie' is enviably positioned close to the scenic Ilsham Valley leading to the parade of shops and restaurants in Wellswood 'Village', whilst Torquay's harbour, yacht marina and sea front are equally accessible within a few miles distance.

The design affords an open plan principal room and principal bedroom commanding full width picture windows encapsulating the sea and stretching coastline of Tor Bay, and inner hall, bathroom and second bedroom presenting a suite for guests enjoying a view over parts of the wooded grounds.

EPC Rating: C


"We fell in love with Kilmorie as soon as we walked through the door and were captivated by the dramatic sea view. We were searching for a holiday home and it just ticked all the boxes, a beautiful apartment which we could lock and leave without worries, seven acres of beautiful landscaped grounds, stunning Meadfoot Beach within a matter of minutes walk, and the amenities of the charming Wellswood village and everything Torbay has to offer either within a comfortable walk or short drive. The design works perfectly with the primary bedroom benefitting from the sea view and en-suite, and the inner hall, second bedroom and bathroom providing a suite for guests, all flowing from the large open plan living area. We no longer need the apartment and hope it will provide someone else a permanent or holiday home which they will enjoy as much as we have."
