Full description

A spacious and well-appointed family home in a desirable location with sea view, desirable & quiet location, sea views from first floor, 4 double bedrooms (master en suite), kitchen/breakfast room, sitting room, dining room & conservatory, double garage & parking, garden with heated pool, EPC Band D

Situation - Located in the quiet and sought after Lincombes residential area on the edge Wellswood, this well-appointed 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 Fine family home is well-located for all the area has to offer, with the amenities of Wellwood Village nearby and the harbour and seafront a pleasant stroll or cycle away. With over 2,300 sq ft of space the house is conventionally laid out over two floors. The first floor has four bedrooms with an en suite to the master which takes in some lovely views over the surrounding area to the sea at Lyme Bay. The ground floor has a kitchen/breakfast room, dining room, sitting room, conservatory, utility, hall and cloakroom WC.

Accommodation - From the driveway the front door gives access the entrance hall where stairs rise to the first floor, and a door accesses the cloakroom/WC, plus there is a large cloaks cupboard. The kitchen/breakfast room is of a good size and ideal for family living with a window to the garden. The granite work surfaces have units under and over with integrated dishwasher, microwave, five ring gas hob with oven below and extractor over, space for an American style fridge/freezer. To the centre is an island unit with storage below, warming drawer and prep sink. A door leads to the utility with further storage, sink and space for washing and drying machines. Off the kitchen is a large conservatory with doors to the garden which forms another reception room with various possible uses and overlooks the garden and pool. The kitchen is open to the dining room with double doors to the decked terrace and into the triple aspect sitting room with an open fire place with stone surround and wooden mantle. Patio doors lead to a private and sunny side terrace and garden.
 
The master bedroom has a large window taking in the fine views over the surrounding area and towards the sea at Lyme Bay, and benefits from fitted wardrobes as well as a large and recently refitted and fully tiled modern en suite bath and shower room. Bedroom two is of generous proportions with a dual aspect. Bedrooms three and four are both doubles and also benefit from the same views as the master. The modern fully tiled family bathroom has also been recently refitted and a separate bath and shower. Next to this is the cloakroom/WC.

Outside - The property is approached from Higher Lincombe Road through a pair of high wrought iron electric gates opening to a bricked paved driveway providing parking and leading to the integral garage/workshop currently fitted out as a workshop and storage. The gardens incorporate terraces and lawns, with a large decked area with balustrading running the length of the property, a landscaped terrace to the front and further decked terrace adjacent to the heated swimming pool.
