DESCRIPTION Situated in a peaceful close on the lower slopes of the prestigious Livermead hillside this deceptively spacious four bedroom detached house affords accommodation arranged over three levels enjoying views over the picturesque Cockington Valley as well as sea views into Tor Bay, across to Torquay harbour and yacht marina. The property enjoys generous living space that has been priced to reflect the level of refurbishment which is now required, but it provides a perfect opportunity for those seeking to inject their own taste an style into a sizeable, chain-free family home.

A host of amenities and leisure activities are within close proximity including the scenic Cockington Country Park covering circa 460 acres, Torre Abbey Sands, tennis and bowls clubs, theatre, marina and harbourside to name just a few. Torquay's train station is also nearby being just one stop from the main line station in Newton Abbot with direct links to most major cities.  

AGENTS INSIGHT The property is situated in an established, highly regarded setting above the Cockingotn Valley and enjoys views over both the picturesque wooded valley as well as sea views into Tor Bay.

Whilst now requiring comprehensive refurbishment the property allows any prospective purchaser the opportunity to upgrade and improve the house to their own taste and style.

Scenic walks through the Cockington Valley to Torquay seafront and harbourside are easily accessible.  

STEP INSIDE A PVCu double glazed front door opens to the Reception Hall from where three of the bedrooms are approached, all double with the Master Bedroom offering fitted wardrobes and En-Suite Bathroom. The Second Bedroom has patio doors to the rear garden and enjoys views over part of the Cockington Valley as well as some sea views into Tor Bay to Torquay harbour and marina. The Third Bedroom enjoys a green view over the trees of Cockington Valley. There is also a Shower Room on this level and a compact Utility with internal access to the Double Garage.

From the Reception Hall stairs rise to the Main Landing with picture window and cupboard housing the hot water cylinder. The Sitting/Dining Room is a sizeable bright room with windows to all four aspects and enjoys views over the Cockington Valley and the hillsides of Torquay to St Marychurch in the distance as well as splendid sea and coastal views into Tor Bay and across to Brixham. PVCu double glazed sliding patio doors lead to the Roof Terrace above the garage. The Kitchen/Breakfast Room is fitted with a range of units and has ample space for a breakfast table, large PVCu double glaze window.

From the Reception Hall stairs descend to the Garden Level Bedroom Suite providing a double room with access to the gardens and has an En-Suite Bathroom. 

STEP OUTSIDE The rear garden is paved with two terraces and small lawned area and screened by California block walling. There is a disused swimming pool now requiring an overhall should any purchaser wish to retain it, measuring 8.57m x 4.25m. There is also a LARGE TERRACE accessed from the sitting room and located above the garage enjoying the beautiful SEA VIEWS as well as over the Cockington Valley.

To the front is a small sloping lawn and tarmac driveway with parking for several vehicles leading to the Double Garage with up and over door, courtesy door to the rear and housing the electric meter and consumer unit.

LOCATION Torquay is nestled on the warm South Devon coast being one of three towns along with Paignton and Brixham which form the natural east facing harbour of Torbay, sheltered from the English Channel. Torbay's wide selection of stunning beaches, picturesque coastline, mild climate and recreational facilities reinforce why it has rightfully earned the renowned nickname of the English Riviera. 

TORQUAY IS WELL CONNECTED By Train: Torquay Train Station is just one stop from the main line Newton Abbot.

By Air: Exeter Airport provides both UK and international flights.

By Sea: Torquay Marina provides a safe haven for boats in all weathers, sheltered from the prevailing south-westerly winds.

Regional Cities of Exeter & Plymouth approximately 22 miles and 32 miles respectively. Magnificent Dartmoor National park approximately 12 miles. 

PLEASE NOTE: To one corner of the rear garden there has been a loss of garden into the Cockington Valley. We have been advised that remedial works have been carried out although the rear boundary line is no longer representative to that displayed on the Land Registry Title.
