Property Description

Full description

Tenure: Freehold

Set in established woodland and grounds between Shaldon and Torquay, the property forms the major part of a grand Victorian villa with beautiful views across the grounds and out to sea. The house, built in 1825 and Listed Grade ll, provides beautiful and elegant accommodation of generous proportions, largely original and richly decorated with ornate coved ceilings, arched stained glass windows and panelled walls. Immediately to the front of the house a south-facing terrace runs the full length and provides a wonderful vantage point to look over the mature gardens, grounds and woodland and out to sea beyond.

Washington House is a short drive from Torquay town centre, and only minutes from the much favoured St Marychurch area with its well-stocked shops, cafes and usual amenities. Watcombe is a sought after destination thanks to its easy access into Torquay, its beautiful cliff top walks, conservation area and the picturesque drive east along the coast road to Shaldon.
