Description One of the finest views over the English Riviera is encompassed from this exceptional marine town house forming part of a select development perched on the hillside overlooking Torquay's sheltered harbour and yacht marina. Set elevated in its plot behind secure electric gates, the property affords generous living space arranged over three levels being thoughtfully planned with the reception rooms opening onto a private garden and balcony which both face a westerly aspect taking full advantage of the breath-taking sea views.
'The Riviera' is enviably tucked back from the hustle and bustle in a peaceful setting yet just a short saunter from the vibrant waterside bars, restaurants, Princess Theatre and array of leisure activities.
Ownerinsight "When I was looking for my new home I walked into The Riviera and instantly knew that it was the house for me. I was immediately drawn to the windows by the beautiful sea and harbour views, as well as the afternoon sunlight flooding in. Despite having now lived here for fifteen years I have never tired of overlooking the harbourside and marina as it is an ever changing picture through each of the seasons of the year. I know that I will miss these terribly when I move but I am sure that they will be equally appreciated by the new owners."
"Having the sun on the property in the afternoon and evening has enabled me to enjoy relaxing in the sunshine in either the garden or on the balcony whilst also 'watching the world go by'. I have spent many a summer evening watching the lovely sunsets over the hillsides opposite."
"I have found the location of The Riviera to be extremely convenient for me. Torquay's town centre is just a short walk away and it has also been nice to be able to have a stroll around the harbourside and along Torquay's beautiful seafront. "
