Description - Situated on a quiet lane in an elevated positon, well-spaced from surrounding properties, with a lovely outlook over this leafy part of Torquay, this spacious family home is presented to a high standard having been well cared for by the current owners. Built in the late 1950s the property is flexibly laid out over three floors with four double bedrooms. Large windows throughout ensure the reception rooms are light and bright, and also allow far-reaching views over the surrounding area. The ground floor is home to the reception accommodation including three reception rooms, one of which would make an ideal ground floor fourth bedroom if required, and kitchen. There are three bedrooms on the lower ground floor, and the roof space has been converted into a large and useful loft room accessed by stairs.

Off this room is the utility room (previously bed 4 en suite) with space and plumbing for washing and drying machines. The sitting room also has a large picture window overlooking the garden and beyond making this a very light room, a feature stone effect fire surround has a coal effect gas fire. The formal dining room overlooks the front garden with a patio door accessing a terrace and garden. A cloakroom has a wash basin and W.C.

Garden & Grounds - The tarmacked driveway is accessed off the lane with parking for several cars; the current owners had planning for a garage which has now lapsed but could potentially be reinstated.
