Situation - Preston is a popular area of Paignton between Torquay and Brixham in the sheltered and beautiful waters of Torbay, at the very heart of the English Riviera. The town is a lively tourist resort but also has a life of its own which lasts all year round. Its busy town centre has all of the local amenities one would expect including shops, restaurants, bars, train station and theatre, plus the sea front with its promenade, sandy beaches and pier. There is a choice of well-regarded schools in the area including Torquay and Churston Grammar Schools.
 
Further afield the regional capital of Exeter is now within easy reach thanks to the new South Devon Highway. Exeter's International Airport offers a wide variety of business and leisure destinations within Europe and beyond.

Description - A short level walk from Preston Sands beach, this impressive home is privately hidden from view behind other properties on the road at the end of the gated driveway, and is surrounded by approximately 0.8 Acres of gardens with extensive lawn and terraced entertaining areas. The house is thought to date from 1926 and during the current ownership has been thoughtfully extended and improved throughout creating a substantial modern family home. There are four bedrooms, two of which are en suite, family bathroom, large kitchen/dining/family room, sitting room and dining room. There is a small outbuilding containing the utility room, and a larger outbuilding with a garage, games room and boarded attic store room. The property also benefits from far reaching sea views from the first floor. NO ONWARD CHAIN
 
 

Accommodation - A gate and path from the driveway leads to the original porch with original solid wood front door, which in turn leads to the reception hall. Doors from the hall open to the ground floor rooms and the original turned staircase rises to the first floor. The kitchen has been extended to create an impressive family room with a vaulted and beamed ceiling, and two almost fully glazed walls with doors leading to the terrace, creating a great entertaining area. There is space for a dining table and informal seating with a tiled floor. The kitchen has a range of cream units above and below the wood effect work surfaces with an island unit/breakfast bar. There is a 5 ring gas hob with extractor, eye level double oven/grill, integrated dishwasher and fridge, and space for a freestanding fridge/freezer. Oak flooring runs thought out the remaining reception rooms, and original internal doors are retained throughout. The sitting room has a dual aspect with large bay window and feature fire place, the dining room has a bay window giving lovely views over the garden, and a feature fire place with electric fire. There is a cloakroom WC adjacent to which is a range of useful storage cupboards and airing cupboard.
 
To the first floor are four bedrooms off the large landing with enough space for a seating or study area. From the landing, master and second bedrooms are sea views across the surrounding area to Tor Bay, taking in Brixham and Berry Head. The master bedroom has a dressing room and en suite shower room, bedroom two also has en suite facilities. Bedrooms three and four share the family bathroom which has both a bath and walk-in shower.

Gardens & Grounds - The entire plot is approximately 0.8 acres. A driveway leads from the road with electric gates, intercom and parking for multiple vehicles. There is an outbuilding that contains a garage as well as a games/party room, store and boarded attic storage. To the rear of the house, off the family room, there are large areas of terracing over three levels forming a wonderful entertaining area. Here you will also find a small outbuilding containing the utility room and gardeners' loo. A further terrace to the front leads to the extensive lawn interspersed with trees and a children's play area at the end.
