DESCRIPTION This GRACIOUS COASTAL APARTMENT enjpoys SEA VIEWS from its principal rooms and forms the whole top floor of one of Torquay's classic period villas, sympathetically converted into just two calibre homes. Standing just a stones throw from the sea front on the lower slopes of the Livermead hillside, one of Torbay's most desirable locations. The extensive living space is typical of its era, featuring lofty ceiling heights and bright rooms, approached by a private staircase from its own gardens and generous parking area complete with double garage.

Holm Lodge is enviably placed just a short saunter from Livermead's local beach, neighbouring Corbyn Head and flagship Torre Abbey Sands with the vibrant waterside cafe bars, restaurants, Marina and Princess Theatre just beyond. The picturesque Cockington Country Park which covers circa 460 acres of meadows, lakes and woodland is equally accessible.  

OWNERS INSIGHT "When I bought the property I instantly fell in love the convenient location. I am going to miss being able to walk along Torquay's beautiful sea front within a couple of minutes, or equally into Cockington. Whether a lovely summer evening or brisk winters day, the stunning scenery on the doorstep still takes my breath away"

"I'm an avid cook and the apartment just works perfect for entertaining. Equally if eating out I do not need to drive or order a taxi as have a choice of lovely restaurants on Torquay's sea front including Pierre Bistro, and Drum Inn country pub at Cockington within walking distance".

"The parking has been excellent, there's enough room for several cars or boat, and over the years the garage has been ideal for my sailing and water ski equipment."
 

STEP INSIDE Steps rise to a private double glazed front door opening into the Entrance Vestibule which houses the gas fired boiler, electric meter and fuse box. The Reception Hall has been thoughtfully opened into the Dining Room providing a welcoming space. The Kitchen enjoys views over the surrounding area to the sea at Tor Bay and benefits from a pantry. From the reception hall a door leads to the impressive Inner Hall with the main area arranged in a split level design with the lower section having a window and Cloakroom. The Sitting Room features a marble fireplace and walk-in bay window taking in the views over the surrounding area to the sea at Tor Bay with further large window. Three Double Bedrooms, one with En-Suite Shower Room compliment the reception space, whilst a Family Bathroom completes the living space.  

STEP OUTSIDE Approached through high pillared gateway initially shared with the neighbouring apartment, with wooden gates open to the gravelled private driveway and extensive parking area. A Double Garage provides additional parking or simply great storage facilities. The private garden provides a small area of lawn, greenhouse, paved area to an inner garden laid to rockery with pond and host of mature fruit trees.
