The Property
A wonderfully located four bedroom character home with a contemporary twist. The original structure forms part of a Victorian Villa built in 1890, now beautifully extended, it is set back from Old Torwood Road, providing a safe, traffic free enclave of just three homes.

From the front door, the entrance hallway feeds the lounge, dining room, kitchen breakfast, and stairway to the bedroom levels.

The spacious lounge features a uPVC sash style window at each end of the room, the focal point being a marble effect fireplace with an inset wood burner. The dining room easily accommodates an eight-seater dining suite, and opens up into a delightful, and very private, patio.

The sizeable kitchen breakfast room, nicely refit approximately two years ago, features a range of shaker style units with quality granite work surfaces. The sink is centred under the window for good natural light and has an etched drainer to one side. There is an integrated dishwasher, and a stacked double oven and grill for ease and convenience. There is also room for a tall freestanding American style fridge freezer set.

Immediately adjacent to the kitchen is a ground floor cloakroom with an adjoining utility room.

The first floor split landing offers access to three bedrooms and a stairway to the loft room.

The master room is spectacular with a doorway opening out to a very sunny, generous size, decked area, an adjoining en-suite, and walk-in dressing room offers you both privacy and convenience. Bedroom two also offers ensuite facilities, with bedroom three (a double room) having the family bathroom adjacent to it.

That fully tiled family bathroom features an opulent oversized jacuzzi bath.

The loft fourth bedroom, accessed by a spiral staircase, offers guest privacy with its own adjoining bathroom area. This upper room offers good flexibility and has storage all around it.

Modern conveniences include full uPVC sash style windows and gas fired central heating throughout.


Standing for two vehicles, in front of a single, tandem length garage, with an electric up and over door. There's extensive shelving within, also a sink and water facilities. A courtesy door opens from here into the rear garden.


The lower garden area features an enclosed patio area, accessed directly from the dining room. A pathway offers access to the kitchen and back around to the garage. This whole area offers ultra low maintenance, with two outside water taps.

Six steps and a shallow grade ramp brings you to a decked area with inlaid LED border lighting, where there is a timber summer house, and a raised flower bed that offers ample space for a vegetable or floral garden. This side of the garden is dominated by a beautifully aged exposed granite wall, a integral timber gateway offers an attractive feature within.

Three further steps lead up to an expansive decked area, south west facing, and enjoying the best of any available sunlight. This area also feeds off from the master bedroom suite. A sunken jacuzzi is also located in a very private recessed area.

The rest of this walled garden is a level lawn area, a bench seat here offers you the best of the evening sunshine. This outside space really does offer something for everyone.

This property also has discretely located solar panels, this is solely owned by the property and enjoys a feed-in tariff that nets around £400, which is typically offset from the electric bills.

The location of this home cannot be faulted, it’s close to Wellswood, full, of charming independent shops, restaurants and businesses. Ilsham Valley is also close by and has many interesting walks down to beach level. Torquay Harbour and town centre are both within walking distance.

What the vendors like about living here:

‘We love the quiet location here at Glenfield Cottage and the pet /children safe wrap-around garden. You can also walk to the Harbour in 12 minutes and Wellswood shops in just 5.’
