Property description

A magnificent Victorian terraced occupying an elevated position looking over Torquay, offering distant sea glimpses. This home offers versatile and flexibility with very spacious accommodation suitable for a variety of uses, including: Apartments, or multi-generational family usage.

It still retains many original features including the double storm doors to the front porch. It's been modernised over the years and now includes uPVC double glazing and full gas fired central heating.

The ground floor level feature twin reception rooms, with the lounge enjoying far reaching views over Torquay. The dining room has previously been used as a bedroom. A shower and cloak room are close by, via the original stained glass accented French door set. That dining room easily accommodates an eight seater dining set.

The kitchen offers a range of base and eye level units with under counter space for appliances. The kitchen opens into a full size utility area, easily adaptable as a self contained kitchenette. This whole area can also be opened up to the adjacent dining room to provide some great family space - as done by some neighbours (subject to planning).

The first floor has two significant sized bedrooms, with the front master enjoying terrific far reaching sea views, both bedrooms have separate 'Jack and Jill' bathrooms for total flexibility.

The second floor has three further bedrooms, two doubles and a very spacious single. A shower room services the three top rooms.

There is also a very large basement, fully developed with three double fronted storage cupboards within. It has a front window and is very lettable, for good home and income opportunities.



The frontage is set up and back from the road. An elevated walkway offers access to a secure gated front garden, recently re-fenced. It's a mix of level lawn, wth steps up to a decked upper terrace offering great views and an ideal private entertainment area.


A courtyard is accessible immediately from the rear utility area. Again, it's good entertainment area, fully paved and enclosed by larch lap fencing. It offers good all day sunshine. A secure gate opens into a rear terraced parking bay, easily accommodating two vehicles, accessed by Ashfield Road.


This home is situated on a bus route offering easy access to to both the marina and Torbay hospital. It's just a five minute walk to the beachside and just 500-yards to Lower Chelston parade.
