Situation - Located in an elevated position on Western Road in St Marychurch the property benefits from a lovely green outlook over the surrounding area. St Marychurch is one of the more sought after neighbourhoods in Torquay and is set to the north of Torquay's bustling harbourside and town centre. Whilst it enjoys all of the facilities that Torquay has to offer it still retains its very own identity and independence. Many of the parks, grand villas, and features that made this particular village, as it then was, so attractive to the Victorians still exist today. Along with Babbacombe it has its very own promenade, beach, theatre, shops, restaurants, pubs (such as the popular Cary Arms) and of course the world famous Model Village.
Further afield the regional capital of Exeter provides all of the big brand shopping and dining experiences that one could wish for. Exeter's International Airport offers a wide variety of business and leisure destinations within Europe and beyond.
