Wide views from Warberry Copse, across Torquay, around to Dartmoor in the distance are just one attribute of this FINE DETACHED HOUSE. Behind the descrete facade lies a deceptive home, arranged with the bedrooms at entrance level with the primary bedrooms opening to an extensive terrace maximising the southerly aspect. A striking family room at lower level features a warming log burner and expansive folding doors seamlessly joining the garden for exceptional relaxation and entertainment space.

Set toward the top of the prestigious Warberries hillside just a short saunter to the established copse, perfect for dog owners, and wide array of amenities at nearby Babbacombe being within a mile distance. Over the hill lies Wellswood, retaining a village ambience with well supported St Matthias Church, restaurants, pub, Post Office, Patisserie, and chemist. A selection of schools are equally accessible including Warberry, Babbacombe, and Ilsham primary’s, and The Spires College.

EPC Rating: D


"We took on a challenge when we bought the property as a traditional three bedroom dated bungalow, but could see the potential. Plans were drawn, and the professional builders were brought in to excavate the garden level and extend to provide us with the home we envisaged. We spend a great deal of our time in the family room with either the log burner lit in the winter, or the doors wide open in the summer making the garden an extension to the space. We planned it so the kitchen bar worked as a relaxation or entertainment space whether inside, or outside enjoying the garden. Now we have supposedly started retirement, we have taken a step back and felt it is a sensible time to downsize, although we do not wish to move from the location. Our family business is nearby, our granddaughter goes to school locally, and everything we could need is either within a reasonable walk or short drive."
