A recently renovated and modernised Victorian Home presented to an exceptional standard. Close to the Harbourside & Wellswood, very high standard of finish, 3 luxurious en suite bedrooms, high spec Alno kitchen/dining room, spacious but low maintenance garden, tandem garage. EPC Band C.

Situation - This fabulous period home is located on Lower Erith Road, a quiet tree lined road well within easy reach of the harbourside and Wellswood shops. The property is within the Lincombes conservation area in an attractive hillside setting.
 
Torquay is located in the heart of the English Riviera famed for its mild climate and clear waters with a mild south-facing aspect, miles of sandy beaches and with 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, palm trees and subtropical gardens, elegant Georgian terraces, plus a myriad of bars and restaurants (one with Michelin-starred cuisine), remains the most attractive area.
 
A good range of educational facilities can be found in Torquay including the highly regarded Torquay Grammar Schools for boys and girls. Exeter is approximately 19 miles from the property, with its extensive range of cultural and recreational facilities. Now an easy commute thanks to the new South Devon Highway.

Description - Ideally situated on a quiet tree lined road yet within easy reach of the harbour and Wellswood, Greenlea has a lot to offer. Presented to an exceptionally high standard, the property has recently undergone a programme of renovation and modernisation leaving no stone unturned. Laid out over three floors the spacious accommodation consists of three luxurious en suite double bedrooms, reception hall with snug, sitting room, high spec kitchen/dining room which is open to the living room. The garden is of a good size, ideal for entertaining or relaxing, and designed for ease of maintenance over three levels. The tandem garage provides parking for two cars.

Accommodation - Originally built by the Victorians in the 1860's the property retains many period features but has been brought bang up to date by the current owners. The quality of workmanship is immediately evident as you enter the reception hall that has been cleverly divided by a floor to ceiling glass partition with a snug to one side, with space for seating, a Nordpeis wood-burning stove and recess for a wall mounted TV. Stairs rise and descend to the other floors with a matching glass balustrade, doors lead to the sitting room and cloakroom/WC. Engineered oak flooring runs throughout the top two floors. The sitting room has a dual aspect through the refurbished windows with shutters; a Stovax multi-fuel stove provides additional heat with a marble mantelpiece.
 
The lower ground floor is a great family or entertaining space loosely divided into three areas, the living room is open to the kitchen/dining room where the dining area is within a new glass roofed extension with Origin bi-fold doors to the terrace, allowing light to flood the room. To one side of the dining area is a row of storage units, one with space for a washing machine. The well thought out and impressive Alno kitchen features a large central Island with Dekton work surface, storage below and a breakfast bar to one side. A range of floor to ceiling storage units fill one wall containing all manner of clever storage solutions. Integrated appliances include full size Miele fridge and separate freezer, Smeg 5-ring gas hob, twin Neff slide and hide ovens plus warming drawer, Bosch dishwasher, plus Quooker hot tap and food waste disposal. Underfloor heating runs throughout this level.
 
The top floor houses three double bedrooms, all with plantation shutters to the windows, and all with luxurious en suite facilities. The master bedroom has a particularly generous en suite with marble tiling, large walk-in shower, freestanding bath and vanity sink unit.

Outside - The garden has had the same treatment as the house and is set on three levels. The large terrace is laid with porcelain tiles and is accessed from the lower floor via bi-fold doors, with a lovely outlook towards the Warberries and surrounded by raised beds, fencing and stone walling. Steps descend to a Millboard decked terrace where there is an impressive garden room with power and light, currently used as an office/studio, but could also be used as a guest room. Steps lead down to the lower level which has been left to the buyers to landscape depending on their needs. The tandem garage to the side of the property has an automated door and storage above.

Services - Main gas, water, drainage and electricity. Gas central heating.
