Situation - Located on the Western edge of Torquay, in a quiet almost rural location, is this pretty chocolate box cottage. Wayside offers the best of both worlds being surrounded by countryside, yet easily accessible for all the lights and sounds of Torquay and the well regarded Hospital.
Torquay is renowned for its healthy climate, this has earned it the nickname of the English Riviera, but Torbay has been a draw to settlers since the early Palaeolithic times and Roman soldiers were known for visiting Torquay when Britain was part of the Roman Empire. Today it offers a comprehensive range of shopping, educational, recreational and sporting facilities. There are nine beautiful beaches within the bay and an international deep water marina situated in the busy harbour where numerous nautical events take place throughout the year including internationally renowned yacht races and the highly charged power boat championships.
Mainline railway links to London Paddington are located a short drive away in the market town of Newton Abbot and the Cathedral city of Exeter is located within 30 minutes drive via the new South Devon Highway

Description - Wayside is a truly charming and attractively presented and deceptively spacious thatch cottage with a host of period character features combined with the modern conveniences of 21st century living. The extremely well balanced accommodation has been lovingly refurbished in recent years by the current owners to an excellent standard and completely re-thatched. It has been rewired and completely redecorated. The property stands neatly in its own gardens and enjoys the benefit of a detached double garage as well as a separate entrance off the road to another parking/storage area. This area is ideal for those that wish to commute to Exeter or the surrounding area.

Accommodation - Approached off a quiet country lane and hiding behind electronic gates, a right of access across a smart brick paved courtyard leads to this property and a further cottage, it also provides secure off street parking and access to the double garage. Through the gate and past the chickens you reach the pretty entrance vestibule and through to the beautiful sitting room. A wonderful warm room with beamed ceilings, wooden floors and a wood burning stove glowing away in the exposed stone fire place with wooden lintel. From the sitting room, doors lead to the kitchen and sunroom and stairs rise to the first floor. The kitchen has been refitted with a range of well fitted wall and floor mounted units in a true farmhouse-style, with space for a range and the usual array of white goods. There is also plenty of space for a kitchen table and numerous windows are generous with the amount of light they let bathe the interior. This room then flows into a conservatory dining area, currently used as a home office. There is a further conservatory adjacent to the sitting room which is a perfect summer room and gives access to the pretty gardens.
On the first floor the beautifully presented theme continues, and you will find three bedrooms. The light and airy master bedroom with en suite shower room. Two further bedrooms share the recently refitted family bathroom.

Garden & Grounds - The gardens are wrapped around both sides and the rear of the house, they are a particular feature of this delightful cottage. They are surprisingly private, largely with terraces perfect for alfresco dining, one of which has road access with secure wooden gates and could happily be used to store a boat or motor home. The lawned areas are surrounded by well stocked flower and shrub borders, currently a large portion of which has been made over to a chicken run. There is also a double garage with parking area.
