DESCRIPTION This EXCEPTIONAL MARINE APARTMENT forms part of a select development perched on the hillside facing south westerly above Torre Abbey Sands, occupying one of Torquay's finest waterfront locations commanding unrivalled views of the English Riviera and Tor Bay's stretching coastline toward Brixham's Berry Head.
