Property description

Tenure: Freehold

DESCRIPTION Set back from the road behind generous driveway parking, this tastefully presented family home has been extended and offers extensive living space throughout. The large and welcoming Entrance Hall with lofty ceiling and attractive fireplaces are just a some of many features to be found. Having been a well loved home for our clients for nearly 40 years, Torhaven is ideal for a growing family or those seeking both character and space.

The property stands in a convenient location for a host of highly regarded schools, both Torbay and Mount Stuart Hospitals and The Willows shopping district. Easy access can also be gained onto the new South Devon Highway linking Torquay to the regional city of Exeter and beyond. 

OWNER INSIGHT "Torhaven has been a warm and happy home for my family for almost 40 years. My husband was a skilled builder and we benefitted from his high standards of renovation and building including an extension. The house is very well insulated with wooden Canadian Oak floors and also had a complete new roof just over 12years ago. The outside space has been really useful, including lots of off road parking and the mature rear garden enjoys lots of sunshine and has been a peaceful space to relax and enjoy throughout the year. Our large and welcoming reception rooms meant we always had great space to enjoy sharing time together and hosting lots of family and friends.

My move is due to age and relocation near to family. I am nonetheless sad to say goodbye to this lovely house, supportive neighbours and convenient location. I hope the new owners will be able to enjoy as many happy memories as my family and I have had"
