The Property
Nestled in an idyllic wooded setting, Lisburne House is one of the few local Victorian Villas that have escaped redevelopment. This six bedroom home was built around 1870 and previously earmarked for conversion to apartments, this home has very much been 'rescued' and has undergone a very impressive refurbishment over the last few years. Many original features have been uncovered, including ornate cornice work, ceiling roses, and beautiful Italian marble fire places.

The ground floor accommodation offers a good logical layout with an entrance vestibule, with downstairs WC with period stained glass, that opens into the reception hall and an original staircase. This floor sees two significant sized reception rooms, a very spacious lounge, again, with bay views, and a sizeable dining room that has a beautiful curved period entrance door. There is also a quality bespoke fitted south facing kitchen breakfast room offering all modern conveniences, and most importantly, bay views. This family friendly space also features granite work surfaces, with a centre island, and integrated Neff appliances - there are three light sources here, so it's very light and airy. A full sized utility room, laundry area (with French doors and steps down to the garden level) and boiler room are also situated close by.

The first floor features a grand galleried landing, offering relaxed space and access to three bedrooms, all with ensuite facilities. The master bedroom enjoys an adjoining dressing room and a luxurious en-suite. A second floor level offers two double bedrooms and a very delightful 'Mickey Mouse' themed bathroom.

A garden level basement offers further versatility with a self contained apartment with access internally via the main residence - it features a double bedroom, and a large living area with a wood burner installed. Although integrated into the main household, this level has its own private access, thus it represents great home and income potential.

Outside
Locationwise Lisburne House cannot be faulted, situated in a conservation area it offers all the benefits of town living, yet nestled in a peaceful still-water. Marina access is easy, and within walking distance, as are Torquay's many fine restaurants and shopping facilities.

Set behind secure electric gates the property is well positioned on its half acre of gardens. There is parking for several vehicles with a driveway that extends all the way down to the main entrance level.

The gardens are a throw back to yesteryear with gentle terracing and multiple pathways revealing hidden lawned areas all offering a high degree of both privacy and seclusion. There is a variety of fauna, in abundance, including the Torquay favourite, palm trees - this outside space is a gardeners delight, and with a beautifully framed view down to the beaches.

Access out of Torquay is very straightforward, Torquay train station is just a 15-minute walk, and the newly completed bypass offers a low traffic option out to Exeter and its international airport.

This home will also be offered with vacant possession, and is chain free, for a potential stress free purchase.
