Full description

Tenure: Freehold

DESCRIPTION Kincraig is a MATURE DETACHED HOUSE of character standing on the hillside above Torquay's town commanding OPEN VIEWS across the surrounding area toward the SEA AT TORBAY. The property has been a well loved home in the same ownership approaching fifty years, and although now requiring general modernisation presents a wonderful opportunity for the new owners to inject their own taste and style. The versatile accommodation affords a traditional layout with useful garden level room and cellarage providing great scope for a wide variety of uses.

Torquay's town centre lies at the base of the hill with vibrant harbourside and yacht marina beyond. Local amenities at Plainmoor with Waitrose are equally accessible, continuing to St Marychurch and Babbacombe within easy reach boasting Torquay's golf course and picturesque Babbacombe Downs with shingle beaches below accessed by the renowned funicular railway.  

OWNER INSIGHT "Kincraig holds so many happy memories I treasure, listening to my mother playing the piano, my father tending his garden, such wonderful parties and countless special family moments. I will certainly shed a few tears when it is no longer ours, having been our happy family home for nearly fifty years".

"I know the house would now benefit from a young family with new ideas and enthusiasm, but the house is a solid home which has certainly been cared for."

"There are so many attributes, but for me the bright rooms and open outlook make it a very welcoming home. The garden is an area of tranquillity and yet remarkably so close to town. Parking is also a big attraction being this close to town and has potential to be extended or construct a large modern garage". 

STEP INSIDE An OPEN STORM PORCH leads to the attractive leaded light entrance door with matching side screen and top lights opening into the welcoming RECEPTION HALL with CLOAKROOM. The principal living space is an open plan arrangement with the SITTING ROOM and DINING ROOM loosely divided and featuring matching fireplaces and bay window to the dining room enjoying the open views across the tree lined area to the sea at Tor Bay. The sitting room flows through to the CONSERVATORY, overlooking the attractive gardens and fine open views. The KITCHEN is fitted with a range of units in an oak design with additional walk-in pantry and further side lobby with connecting door to the front elevation.

A turned staircase from the reception hall with bottom and top winders rises to the FIRST FLOOR LANDING with loft access and window providing ample natural light. THREE DOUBLE BEDROOMS lead off the landing, all with fitted wardrobes/storage and the master having a bay window enjoying arguably the finest views from the property to the sea at Tor Bay taking in Paignton Pier and selection of Church spiers. The bathroom has a light suite with bath and shower attachment taps, WC with concealed cistern and vanity unit. Separate WC with window.

From the reception hall a staircase leads down to a versatile GARDEN ROOM currently used as a workshop and utility with plumbing for washing machine, sink, WC and shower cubicle. Further useful cellar storage runs underneath the reception hall and kitchen. Door opening to the garden. 

STEP OUTSIDE The rear gardens are arranged over tiers with lawns, central paved terracing and old timber framed productive greenhouse. A driveway leads down the side of Kincraig, shared with three neighbouring properties, to PRIVATE AMPLE PARKING and LARGE TIMBER GARAGE which has potential for demolition to create a modern double garage (subject to usual permissions). From the bottom of the driveway is pedestrian gated access to the steps taking you to Torquay Town Centre.
