Full description

Tenure: Freehold

An extremely spacious newly refurbished Period Town House in a most convenient location. Versatile layout with 2 large Reception Rooms and scope to provide 5 Bedrooms. Parking to front and rear. Suitable residential or commercial use.

Situated between the Torquay Road and Palace Avenue Gardens, in a relatively quiet backwater, yet just a short walk from the Town Centre and all amenities, this property was built in the mid 1800s by the famous Engineer, Isambard Kingdom Brunel, for the South Devon Railway Company as a home for its principal officers and until recently has been used as a Doctors Practice.  

Newly refurbished with the benefit of Gas Fired Central Heating, it could adapt for residential or commercial use, including a two-generation home or offices with accommodation, and must be viewed to appreciate the space and potential offered.
