Property description

A wonderful three bedroom family home with an abundance of reception space in the sought after Wellswood area of Torquay. 3 Bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, large kitchen/breakfast room, utility room, dining room, sitting room, snug, and off-street parking. EPC Band D.


Situation


This wonderful family home is located on an ever popular road in the Wellswood area of Torquay. Torquay began its rise as a resort for the well-to-do when the fleet of the Royal Navy used Tor Bay as an anchorage during the Napoleonic Wars. It became fashionable for naval officers and their families during the first half of the 19th century. This prompted the building of many large and fashionable villas as well as exclusive hotels as Torquay aimed at the higher end of the market. This holiday trade was given a special boost after the railway arrived in 1848. Wellswood is an area of Torquay developed with exclusive villas for the well-to-do during the 19th century.

Description


This beautifully presented property offers an inviting family home oozing charm and character, balancing the traditional features of an Edwardian property with modern day comforts, all within walking distance of the amenities of Wellswood 'village'. A continuity of design and colour has created a stylish home, with spacious accommodation including a bright sitting room, dining room, kitchen/breakfast room, family sitting room, utility and cloakroom, together with three bedrooms, bathroom and shower room. To the rear of the property is a private and sheltered area of decking, to the front is a small lawned garden and the benefit of an off street parking space.

Accommodation


This character Edwardian end of terrace house offers a comfortable way of life for its residents with many original features including windows and detailed cornice works. A ground floor extension creates the right balance of reception space verses bedroom accommodation. The ground floor is entered through a stable door into the kitchen. This fabulous room, which is a kitchen come breakfast room, also has enough space to accommodate a quiet reading area or children's play corner. There is the usual range of well fitted wall and floor units and a handy utility area just off the kitchen to house the washing machine etcetera. There is also a cloak room.

There are three reception rooms. A drawing room at the front of the property, which is a tranquil room with a feature fireplace and an abundance of natural light. The formal dining room is at the heart of the house and has a many potential uses. The front door leads into this room through a vestibule, a perfect place for coats and boots.

Upstairs there are three bedrooms and a fabulous family bathroom with separate shower room. We understand it would be possible to convert the loft to additional bedroom accommodation, subject to the necessary constraints. An early viewing of this wonderful house is highly recommended.

Outside


Passing the private off street parking space there is a small lawned area to the front of the property, a terrace leads to the front and kitchen entrance to the property. Beyond this is a surprisingly private decked terrace area on two levels to the rear, which makes this a very pretty and easy to maintain garden with driveway to the front.
