CAPTIVATING COASTAL VIEWS OF THE ENGLISH RIVIERA are just one of the attributes afforded at The Lighthouse, a STRIKING DUPLEX PENTHOUSE APARTMENT enviably set at the end of the prestigious Hesketh Crescent, one of Torquay's landmark grade II* listed buildings, commissioned in 1846 and influenced on the Regency ideals of London and Brighton. The bright and welcoming accommodation flows over two levels, with 180 degree sea views, affording a spacious and versatile three bedroom design complete with roof terrace from where the vista is best enjoyed.
The distinguished Osborne Hotel with its restaurants and Hesketh's Health Club form part of the Crescent, proudly stood above the picturesque Meadfoot Beach, just a pebble's throw away and being a haven for a water sports. Wellswood village is easily accessible as is Torquay's harbour side & town centre, all within a sensible 20-30 min walk away.
Regret no smokers, pets or HB.
