Situation - Danvers occupies a fine position, its easterly aspect provides far reaching sea views across the bay. The house occupies a prominent position between Torquay and Paignton in Livermead which is one of Torquays most desirable areas. A stone's throw from the idyllic village of Cockington, and Livermead Sands beach, a long sandy beach parallel to the main seafront road between Torquay and Preston. There is a designated water-skiing area and the beach is largely used by water sports enthusiasts. Tor Bay is a beautiful protected east-facing natural harbour at the western most end of Lyme Bay situated roughly midway between the cities of Exeter and Plymouth.
There are well regarded primary and secondary schools in the area, as well as Torquay's Grammar schools.
If travel and commuting are important to you the Cathedral city of Exeter is now within 30 minutes drive thanks to the new South Devon Highway. Torquay train station is within easy reach and there is a bus stop a short walk from the house. The wider facilities of Torbay are on your door step.

Description - Believed to have been constructed in 1912 Danvers forms a substantial Edwardian family home. Located in the popular area of Livermead the house is oriented in the direction of Tor Bay allowing some beautiful sea views. With a flexible layout the property is currently arranged as a 7 bedroom home but part of the ground floor could be sectioned off (subject to the necessary permissions) into a separate annexe with its own front door from the driveway, ideal if you have a dependant relative, independent older child, or wish to have additional income through letting. The house sits in a plot measuring in excess of one third of an acre allowing for a large and private garden. A heated pool is situated in the large terrace to the rear of the property.

Accommodation - The current owners have made many improvements to the property during their term of ownership. The property is entered from the driveway into the entrance hall through to the reception hall where stairs rise to the first floor. The kitchen has been recently refitted with a range of white units above and below a black granite effect work surface; an impressive range cooker takes pride of place, there is space for a freestanding fridge and an integrated dishwasher. The kitchen is loosely divided from the dining room by a peninsular unit which houses the sink, a large window overlooks the generous garden and across the bay towards Torquay harbour, glazed double doors give access to the pool terrace. The sitting room also has lovely views thanks to the large bay window. A utility room has further storage and space and plumbing for washing and drying machines. To the side of the house is the conservatory with access to the pool terrace and makes an ideal second sitting room/snug.
Through a further door from the hallway are a number of rooms that could easily be split off as an annexe, as they have been in the past. Currently laid out as a games room with bay window overlooking the garden, gym, en suite bedroom, plus a bathroom.
To the first floor are 5 double bedrooms, 3 of which benefit from the sea views over the garden and surrounding area, the central bedroom also has patio doors leading to a balcony. Two of the bedrooms have en suite facilities plus there is a family bath and shower room. The generous landing has an area that is currently used as a study, with a stained glass window looking to the front.

Garden & Grounds - One of the features of this property are the generous and secure gardens with the entire plot measuring over a third of an acre and surrounded by walling and fencing, ideal for children and dogs. An impressive pillared and gated entrance leads to the driveway/parking area and the large double garage. To the rear of the property is a large terrace with heated pool, to the side is a garden room that houses a Jacuzzi. Steps lead down to the gently sloping lawn with enough space to tire the most energetic of children, surrounded by trees, shrubs and hedging.
