The Property
A beautifully proportioned two-bedroom Victorian Villa situated in a prominent location close to Torquay Harbour. This is the first time it’s being sold for over 26-years and is incredibly unique in its situation. It features an oversized lounge with twin south-facing windows that look out over its own private courtyard. This charming room has a period style fireplace, with display niches either side, and twin centred ceiling roses. There is also a set of French doors that also open into that walled courtyard.

The kitchen dining room is also larger than typically seen, easily accommodating a six seat dining set. There is a range of base and eye level units with a stainless sink unit centred under the front window for good natural lighting. There is a four burner gas hob, with a matching extractor hood over, and an adjacent stacked double oven and grill set. There is also a built in pantry/larder. A utility cupboard houses a combination boiler with plumbing and space for an automatic washing machine below.

Upstairs sees a very spacious split level landing illuminated by a casement window, a built in airing cupboard, a separate cloakroom and bathroom with a large walk in shower cubicle, a second deep storage cupboard also offers further storage solutions . Four steps up brings you to the two double bedrooms, with the master enjoying a built in floor to ceiling double wardrobe set, and a secondary floor to ceiling storage cupboard.

There’s real character here, with all the modern conveniences of uPVC double glazing, and full gas radiator central heating.

The outside space matches the house qualities with a secure gated, walled front cottage style garden, that offers a multitude of raised flower beds and borders containing a variety of fauna, including a mature magnolia and a fruit bearing apricot tree.

The rear garden has timber double gates that open into a pergola offering parking for a single vehicle. There is also potential here to include standing for a boat or water vehicle.

That rear garden also walled, offers a high degree of privacy and seclusion, opening out from the lounge for good inside outside space. It too contains a variety of fruit trees, including three plum trees, a pear, apple and cherry tree. Due to the sun trap it creates - both orange and lemons have done well here.

Between the two gardens is a painted granite brick shed with a door to each garden side, offering useful storage for outside furniture and garden equipment.

Finally, Wisteria runs along the front, and together with the Jasmine, it offers a chocolate box look to this very desirable home.

The location cannot be faulted, buses run close by for trips to Town and harbour one side, Babbacombe Downs and St Marychurch on the other. It's beside a delightful park area too.
