Situation - Located on Babbacombe Road, this semi-detached Victorian property is well positioned for easy access to the Harbour, seafront, and the amenities of Wellswood Village. The property is within the Lincombes conservation area on a pretty hillside setting, largely consisting of detached villas in spacious grounds, amongst lush vegetation.

Torquay is located in the heart of the English Riviera famed for its mild climate and clear waters with a mild south-facing aspect, miles of sandy beaches and with the arrival of the railway in 1848 its growth as a holiday destination for the rich and famous was spectacular. Tor Bay was chosen for the 1948 Olympic sailing events, hosted by the Royal Torbay Yacht Club. The harbour, with its large marina, palm trees and subtropical gardens, elegant Georgian terraces, plus a myriad of bars and restaurants (one with Michelin-starred cuisine), remains the most attractive area.

Torquay is well served with rail links to the major cities, the newly opened South Devon Link Road giving speedy access to the M5 motorway and airport at the Cathedral City of Exeter.

Description - Forming the wing of a Victorian villa this spacious 3 bedroom house retains many of the features that make this era of property so popular, such as high ceilings, decorative mouldings, sash windows many with the original shutters, and panelled doors.

The sitting/dining room features the original polished woodblock and plank timber flooring. The room is an 'L' shape forming sitting and dining areas and features a pine mantelpiece with marble inset and hearth with living flame effect gas fire with alcove storage either side.
