DESCRIPTION This FINE DETACHED BUNGALOW occupies a large corner plot facing the nearby Brunel Woodland and enjoying open views over the surrounding area. The property is beautifully presented both inside and out, affording versatile living space centred around the dining hall and having a useful first floor third bedroom.

Padacre Road stands on the outskirts of Torquay yet conveniently placed for access to the local amenities at the bottom of the road, whilst more comprehensive amenities are within a few miles distance at both the Willows out of town shopping district or St Marychurch, with its village ambiance and where Torquay Golf Club can be found. The pretty Watcombe Cove lies at the base of the wooded hillside by crossing the nearby Teignmouth Road where the South Devon Coastal Footpaths can be joined toward Shaldon and Teignmouth to the north or Torquay and wider Torbay to the South.  

OWNERS INSIGHT "Over our twelve years at the bungalow it has been a very happy home. The versatility has been so handy for us having different generations of our family staying at different times and enabling everyone to have their own private spaces".

"The brightness was an instant attraction to us and the feeling of space both inside and out. The sun is on the bungalow all day, rising to the front in the ground floor bedrooms and following the main gardens around to the sitting room, kitchen and terrace until setting."

"The convenience of local shops and bus services on the doorstep has been wonderful. We can be at The Willows shopping district or St Marychurch within a 10 minute drive".

"We have done a lot of work to the bungalow over the years, and there is still potential if people have other requirements. We considered extending to the side to create an annexe for our mum or daughter, and a second shower room in the loft, however our circumstances changed and we are now looking to downsize. It will certainly be a sad day when we leave."  

STEP INSIDE A leaded light door with matching sidescreen open into the impressive DINING HALL, central to the property with useful linen cupboard and views toward the Brunel Woodland. The SITTING ROOM enjoys a living flame effect gas coal fire and bright, dual aspect with views over the private gardens toward Easterfield and across the surrounding district. Sliding patio doors open to the rear of the property where our clients were considering installing either steps to the paved terrace or a balcony which will be left for the new owners to decide their preferred option. The KITCHEN has modern high gloss units with brushed chrome handles and woodblock effect worktops. Provisions for dishwasher, washing machine and fridge freezer. Integrated freezer, ceramic hob, oven and grill. Window to westerly aspect, door to lobby with boiler and door to the driveway parking. TWO DOUBLE BEDROOMS are positioned to the entrance level, both enjoying views toward the Brunel Woodland and the master having a dual aspect and full bank of fitted wardrobes to one wall. The BATHROOM has been remodelled to accommodate both a double ended bath with shower attachment taps and walk-in shower with curved glazed screen to suite every family members needs.
From the dining hall, a straight flight of stairs with glass detailing rises to the FIRST FLOOR LANDING with store cupboard and access into EAVES STORAGE which our clients considered the potential to extend into and create an additional shower room (subject to the usual permissions). BEDROOM 3 provides a useful room, ideal as a guest room or home office with westerly views over the surrounding area and eaves storage.  

STEP OUTSIDE The extensive corner plot affords generous gardens to the front, laid for ease of maintenance with mixture of paving and shingle with flower beds and selection of decorative small trees. Access to both sides, the northerly elevation benefitting from double wooden gates to ample brick paved driveway parking, with further scope to extend onto a lawnned area with high mature hedge separating the front garden. GARAGE with modern up and over door, power and lighting supplied and window to the rear. From the parking a secure gate leads through the a large natural stone paved terrace enjoying open views toward the spires of St Marychurch and having outside power points. Gentle steps lead down to a further large side lawn with secure gated access back to the front. The side garden presents potential to extend the bungalow (subject to the usual permissions) or create a more formal garden area whether productive or floral. A door from the lower/side garden opens to a GENEROUS UNDERHOUSE STORAGE/WORKSHOP with power, lighting and sink provided.
