Situation - Whidborne Avenue is one of the most sought after roads in the area due to the stunning coastal views available, as well as the quiet ambience it offers, and is located a short distance from Torquay's town centre and harbourside. The boutique shops, restaurants and cafes of Wellswood are close by and access to stunning coastal walks and scenery are within easy reach.

Torquay provides a wonderful quality of life for its residents with excellent shopping, waterside restaurants, a theatre and bars. The deep water marina provides excellent mooring facilities. Torbay benefits from a full range of well-respected state and independent schools including the boys and girls Grammar Schools

The picturesque coastal town of Dartmouth is nearby and the Cathedral city of Exeter is now only a short commute thanks to the newly opened South Devon Link Road. There are mainline rail links from Torquay through Newton Abbot to London Paddington.

Description - With stunning sea views towards Meadfoot Beach and Tor Bay, as well as the ever changing colours of the wooded Ilsham Valley, this fabulous waterside home has a lot to offer. Thought to have been constructed in the 1960s the property has been in the same ownership for over 30 years. Traditionally constructed and laid out predominantly over two levels with spacious reception rooms. Accommodation includes a kitchen/breakfast room, sitting room, dining room, conservatory and study/snug to the ground floor. To the first floor are four bedrooms, the master having en suite facilities and family bathroom. Planning permission was granted in 2013 to remove the existing pitched roof and build a roof extension to create a master bedroom with en suite or second sitting room with large roof terrace, which would have the most stunning panoramic sea views.

Accommodation - An enclosed porch leads to the reception hall where stairs rise to the first floor. Immediately off to the right, is a flexible room currently used as a study with a useful store room off it, a bay window looks to the front. The sitting room is L shaped and has a coal effect gas fire with marble surround, glazed patio doors lead to the conservatory creating another sitting area with stunning with views over Ilsham Valley, the coastline above Meadfoot Beach and across Tor Bay. Off the conservatory is a balcony with steps leading to the garden. The dining room also accesses the conservatory and benefits from the same stunning views. The recently refurbished kitchen/breakfast room has a range of gloss cream units with oak side panels above and below the dark granite work surfaces with inset sink. The dishwasher, fridge/freezer, eye level double oven/grill, hob and extractor are all integrated, and there is space for a dining table. Once again you can appreciate the magnificent views from the large window. There is also a useful cloakroom on this floor.

To the first floor are four double bedrooms. The master bedroom has a range of fitted furniture plus an en suite shower room, and along with bedroom 3 benefits from views across the bay to Berry Head. Bedroom 2 has access to a balcony and along with bedroom 4 has elevated sea views over Tor Bay, Meadfoot Beach and across the Ilsham valley. The family bathroom has a separate bath and shower.

Garden & Grounds - The tarmac driveway provides ample parking and leads to the double garage with automated door. The well maintained garden can be accessed by steps to the side of the house or steps down from the conservatory balcony. There are two levels of paved terracing, one extending to a covered seating area below the ground floor, ideal for all weather BBQs, the other has a pond and pergola creating a shaded seating area. Below the terrace is a good size gently sloping lawn surrounded by shrub and flower borders. Beyond the garden is a large area of woodland, a haven for wildlife.
