Full description

A spacious 2 double bedroom maisonette in the sought after Wellswood area. Attractive period building close to amenities, 2 Double Bedrooms (1 en suite), sizeable kitchen, sitting/dining room, communal gardens and parking space. EPC Band D.

Situation - Located in the desirable Wellswood area of Torquay, a popular area thanks to its leafy and tree lined roads, quiet ambience and the parade of boutique shops, restaurants, coffee shops as well as the well regarded Kents Tavern. Torquay is the heart of the English Riviera, famed for its mild climate and crystal clear waters interspersed with palm fringed sandy beaches. This grand anchorage was favoured by the Royal Navy during the Napoleonic Wars and Torquay soon benefited from their presence as smart houses were built to accommodate the officers.

With a mild south-facing aspect, miles of sandy beaches and the arrival of the railway in 1848 Torquay's growth as a holiday destination for the rich and famous was spectacular. The harbour, with its large marina, palm trees and subtropical gardens, elegant Georgian terraces, as well as a myriad of bars and restaurants, one with Michelin-starred cuisine, remains the most attractive area.

Bus routes and the well renowned local primary school are close by.

Description - Built in 1883 Barrington House is an attractive period building that has latterly been converted into apartments, and is located on a quiet road within the Warberries Conservation Area, close to the local amenities of Wellswood.

The kitchen is of a good size with a comprehensive range of storage units with space for a breakfast table and an American style fridge/freezer.
