Property description

Tenure: Freehold

DESCRIPTION 'Beautifully bijou'. Set above the road with discrete gated approach, this CHARMING MEWS HOUSE features a generous PRIVATE TERRACE, open plan principal living space with mezzanine bedroom area and EXTENSIVE GARAGING beneath. The exceptional parking and terrace are particular attributes for a property of this style and location. A wonderful opportunity for an owner occupier or rental investor seeking something a little different!

Torquay's town centre, harbour and sea front are all within easy reach, providing a wide range of amenities and recreational activities. Local shops at Lucius Street are equally a short walk, whilst both the English Riviera Centre and TLH Leisure Resort are found within a mile distance providing exceptional facilities for health and wellbeing.  

OWNERS' INSIGHT "Matlock Cottage is certainly unique! I have lived here now for twelve years, and there is so much I will miss. The garaging is perfect for anyone seeking plenty of parking, workshop space or storage. If anyone has a boat or enjoys water sports, they have ample storage for everything needed and just a few minutes from the marina or beach.

The property itself is compact, but perfectly comfortable. In the warmer months I use the terrace as an extension to the living space and is particularly lovely in an evening with the sun setting. I am only moving for a change in lifestyle to Cornwall, but will be leaving Matlock Cottage with a heavy heart."  

STEP INSIDE Double glazed sliding entrance door opening to the ENTRANCE PORCH with tiled floor, provisions for washing machine and tumble dryer. Further double glazed sliding patio doors open to the CHARACTER PRINCIPAL LIVNG SPACE with double height gabled ceiling and exposed timbers.
