Situation - This property is situated in a quiet road at the top of Wolborough Hill and adjacent to an extensive Conservation Area. Wolborough Hills success as a residential area is due to Lord Devon's vision for creating a most desirable place to live. The bustling market town of Newton Abbot is located between the Dartmoor National Park and the beaches of the South Devon coast, well situated for leisure activities for which the area is renowned. It also offers all everyday amenities, a mainline railway station (direct service to London Paddington commuter train 2.5hrs) and convenient road links via the A380 dual carriageway linking to the M5 motorway network. Shaldon and Teignmouth are both 6 miles away and are known for their delightful beaches.
The Teign Estuary offers moorings for yachts and dinghy sailing and boating. In the immediate vicinity of the property there are a number of footpaths and trails to Decoy and Bakers Park as well as local walks around Wolborough Hill itself. Schools - choice of state and independent schools including single sex and mixed sex grammar schools.

Description - Paramoor is approached over a long winding tarmacadam private drive sweeping between mature borders with ample parking for at least 4 - 6 vehicles. Paramoor has been completely refurbished and remodelled by the current vendors to provide an attractive modern eco home with well flowing accommodation together with flexible living.
The property has a multitude of cleverly designed features, coupled with high quality fittings including a central vacuum system and mood lighting with pre-programmed lighting scenes in the main rooms.
