Full description

Tenure: Freehold

DESCRIPTION This bay fronted MATURE SEMI-DETACHED HOUSE stands in a popular district close to a host of local schools. Beautifully presented, the property affords a traditional layout featuring an open plan kitchen/dining room and striking modern bathroom. Driveway parking complete with single garage are particular benefits, whilst the rear garden has been hard landscaped with retaining walls constructed, which a new owner can finish to their preferred taste.

The highly regarded Sherwell Valley Primary and both Grammar Schools are within easy reach, whilst a selection of other schools are just a short distance further including the primary schools of Shiphay, Queensway and Cockington. For those commuting out of Torquay, the new South Devon Highway and A380 are easily joined from this side of Torquay and the picturesque Cockington Country Park and Torquay's sea front are both found within a few miles distance.  

OWNER INSIGHT "We chose the locality initially and the house was just perfect. As a young family the school catchment areas were high priority and we felt this area of Torquay is blessed with having some of the best schools in the bay for both primary and secondary. With our jobs we also needed to commute to Exeter and Newton Abbot areas and the new South Devon Highway being within a 5 minute drive just made life so much easier".

"The house gave us space for a growing family and flows really well. Unfortunately we have not managed to complete the rear garden and we were planning to finish with paving and lawn, but we know a new owner may have other ideas and no doubt it will be a lovely area for the next people to enjoy and stamp their own mark".

"We're going to miss the convenience. Cockington Country Park is just over the hill and it is virtually a level walk to the sea front. The Willows shopping district is a short drive and we have several local shops and amenities nearby"


STEP INSIDE An Open Storm Porch with tiled floor leads to the obscure glazed entrance door with matching sidescreens and toplights. Reception Hall with oak effect flooring and generous understairs storage. The Sitting Room features a striking limestone fireplace with inset multi fuel stove and PVCu double glazed bay window overlooking the frontage with mature tree. The Kitchen/Dining Room provides a wonderful open family space arranged in an 'L' shape design with the Dining Area having double glazed French doors opening to the rear garden. The Kitchen is tastefully fitted with a range of light cream, high gloss units and integrated double oven with grill, microwave and four ring gas hob with glass canopy filter hood over Provisions for washing machine and fridge/freezer, fitted wine rack and sink unit with window above allowing ample natural light.

From the Reception Hall stairs rise to the First Floor Landing with loft access hatch. Three Bedrooms lead off the landing, two generous doubles with the main bedroom having a bay to the front and the third bedroom being a traditional single. The Bathroom has been beautifully modernised with a double ended bath with central cascade mixer tap and additional double shower with glazed screens, rain head and body spray. Wall hung vanity unit and WC. Generous fitted linen cupboard with slat shelving and window.  

STEP OUTSIDE The front is approached via a wide concrete driveway and to the side is a raised garden mainly laid to slate chippings with raised beds. The driveway narrows with access down the side elevation to the Garage. The rear garden has been hard landscaped with retaining walls setting out tiered levels, however requires finishing and will be left for the new owner to complete to their own requirements.
