Full description

A deceptively spacious and well-presented family home with terrific views across Ilsham Valley to the sea beyond, 4 bedrooms (1 en suite), kitchen & utility, sitting room & dining room, study/bedroom 4, decked balcony & terrace, well maintained gardens, garden & garage with workshop. EPC Band D.

Situation - Located in a quiet residential cul-de-sac on the edge of Wellswood village, in a commanding position looking across Ilsham Valley towards Lyme Bay. This spacious family home is ideally located for a quiet life, yet in easy reach of Torquay's bustling harbour side and town centre.
 
Torquay was a grand anchorage favoured by the Royal Navy during the Napoleonic Wars and soon benefited from their presence as smart lodging houses were built to accommodate the officers. With a south-facing aspect, miles of sandy beaches and the arrival of the railway in 1848, its growth as a holiday destination for the rich and famous was spectacular. The harbour with its large marina, elegant Georgian terraces, palm trees and subtropical gardens, remains the most attractive area.
 
Torbay benefits from a full range of well-respected schools including the boys and girls grammar schools. Rail links from Torquay join the main line to London in Newton Abbot.

Description - This inviting and well-presented detached family home has been well cared for by the current owners. The reverse level accommodation is laid out over two floors ensuring you get the best of the views from the reception rooms. The entrance level houses the kitchen, dining room, sitting room, study/bed 4, utility room and garage. A balcony wraps around the rear of the property, a great place to relax and enjoy the open outlook over the pretty wooded hillsides of Ilsham Valley to the sea beyond. The Garden level has three bedrooms including the wonderfully spacious master bedroom with en suite bathroom.

Accommodation - The front door opens to an inviting reception hall that leads on to the sitting room, a large room with large picture windows to two aspects taking in the best of the views, and has a living flame gas fire. The kitchen has a range of cream units above and below granite effect work surfaces with inset ceramic double sink and tiled floor, a large window again gives lovely views. Equipment includes an integrated fridge, Bosch eye level double oven/grill and Bosch ceramic hob with extractor over. An archway leads to the dining room with wood effect laminate flooring. The utility room has further storage and space for washing machine and dishwasher, a door leads to the balcony that runs the width of the rear of the house. Off the hallway is a cloakroom/WC, and there is also a study on this level that could be utilised as a fourth bedroom.
 
A turned staircase leads to the garden level hall that accesses three double bedrooms and the family shower room. The master bedroom is an impressive and large room split into a bedroom and dressing room area with fitted wardrobes, with the two areas open to each other. Off the bedroom is a spacious en suite bathroom with shower over the bath, WC, bidet and vanity unit with plenty of storage. The master bedroom also has a lovely view over the garden with access via a patio door. Bedroom two has a dual aspect and a door to the garden.

Garden & Grounds - To the front of the property is driveway parking and access to the double garage, at the rear of the garage is a useful workshop area. The gardens to the rear are particularly attractive and have been beautifully maintained by the current owners. Broadly laid out over three levels with an area of decking and terracing off the house leading to a level area of lawn. The lower lawn slopes away and is of a good size with a fish pond and water feature. The garden is bordered by hedging, shrubs and trees. Accessed from the garden and below the garage is a useful garden store room, with WC and wash basin.
