EPC Band E.

Situation - Preston is a sought after area of Paignton located between Torquay and Brixham in the sheltered and beautiful waters of Tor Bay, at the very heart of the English Riviera. This area gained its reputation as a place to see and be seen during the days of Queen Victoria when it was compared to the French and Italian Rivieras because of its sunny climate, breath-taking coastal views and long, sandy beaches.
Today the town is still a lively tourist resort but 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, cinema, bars and train station as well as the seafront with its long, wide promenade, sandy beaches and pier.
The property is well placed for access in and out of the area via the South Devon Link Road, there are a range of local shops nearby including Occombe Farm Shop. The railway station links to the intercity network at nearby Newton Abbot.

Description - With stunning elevated and panoramic views, taking in the coastline, beaches and sea of Tor Bay, this deceptively large home has almost 3,900 sq ft/365 sq m of spacious accommodation. The property is laid out over three levels with the potential to create an annexe on the lower ground floor (subject to planning). The main reception rooms are of generous proportions with lofty ceilings along with the kitchen/breakfast room. There two or three bedrooms to the ground floor and a further two bedrooms to the first floor. Generous gardens lie to the side and rear. Whilst the property is presented in good order throughout there is scope for the new owners to put their own stamp on it.

Accommodation - A large entrance vestibule leads on to a hallway where stairs rise and descend to the other floors. The reception rooms include a reception/dining hall, sitting room and dining room, all of which are of a generous size with high ceilings. The kitchen has a range of storage units above and below the work surfaces that extend to a breakfast bar. There is a fitted eyelevel double oven/grill and a gas hob. To the rear of the property, accessed from the kitchen and reception hall, is a garden room running the width of the house. From here, and the rooms to the rear of the property which look through the garden room, you can take in the stunning southerly views over the surrounding area and the coast of Tor Bay towards Brixham, Berry Head and beyond. There are two large double bedrooms on this level, one with an en suite shower, and a family bathroom.
To the first floor are two double bedrooms, both with stunning views, plus a bathroom.
The lower ground floor can be accessed internally or externally, and at one time, we believe, was used as separate living quarters. There are four rooms, a living room, utility room, possible bedroom with en suite bathroom, a cellar store room, plus various other storage areas. With a little work, and subject to planning, this area could be utilised as a self-contained annexe for a family member or as a source of income.

Gardens - The current owners are keen gardeners and have created a wonderful and diverse garden for family enjoyment. Off the rear of the house, facing south is a large terrace, ideal for entertaining, which leads on to gently sloping areas of lawn with pathways between. Borders are well stocked with a variety of plants, shrubs and trees, and the garden is securely surrounded by hedging and fencing, and to the centre is a pond. There is a productive kitchen garden to one side including a variety of fruit trees. There are even several rare Mexican Agave plants, also known as a century plant, one of which is in flower. A gate in the rear boundary leads to the nature reserve beyond, ideal for dog walks. To the front are two driveway parking areas off Sandringham Gardens and Preston Down Road.

Services - Mains water, drainage, gas and electricity. Gas central heating.
