Description Situated on the lower slopes of the Warberries hillside and located in a peaceful setting behind lovely maintained gardens, this two bedroom penthouse apartment enjoys well-proportioned, bright accommodation that has recently been upgraded with the installation of a new kitchen, heating system, floors and carpets and decorating throughout. Open views across to the wooded Lincombes hillside and sea views into Tor Bay are enjoyed. A large sun terrace enjoying a south & east facing aspect compliments this splendid apartment giving a spacious outside space for entertaining and relaxation with easy access to the kitchen and sitting room.

Torwood Court is tucked away from the hustle and bustle yet within easy reach of Torquay's Harbourside and town centre at the base of the hill where a wide selection of shops, waterside bars, restaurants and mooring facilities can be found. Local shops and eateries at Lisburne are just a short saunter whilst Wellswood is also easily accessible with its village ambience.

Owners insight "The apartment provides bright and light accommodation throughout, most of which enjoys the lovely open views, and due to its aspect also gains all day sunshine".

"Whilst being an apartment this penthouse actually provides a high degree of independence due to being one of only two penthouses within the building, and actually the only one accessed from this entrance. The good size roof terrace allows residents to benefit from panoramic views whilst relaxing."

"All rooms within the apartment provide well-proportioned accommodation, ideal for those downsizing to their new home".

Step inside A security operated communal door leads to lift or stairs access rising to the Fourth Floor where a flight of stairs leads to the Top Floor where a private entrance door, with storage cupboards to the side with electric meter, opens to the Reception Hall from where all the rooms radiate. The Sitting Room is a bright, double aspect room with large windows enjoying open views over the surrounding area from the wooded Lincombes to the sea at Tor Bay. French doors open to the Private Terrace. Recently fitted Kitchen with a range of units, fitted electric oven and ceramic hob. This room also benefits from a double aspect enjoying open views and door to the terrace. There are two Double Bedrooms, both with southerly aspect and enjoying the open views to the Lincombes and the sea at Tor Bay. There is also a Bathroom and Separate WC.

Step outside Torwood Court is approached over and in and out driveway and is set in beautifully tended mature communal gardens, screened by high hedging and well stocked shrub borders. To the rear of the development are a number of parking bays for residents and visitors with this apartment benefitting from a Garage, with power and lighting, situated in a block to the rear, seventh from the left in the higher block and due to its position is wider than most of the other garages providing space for a vehicle and storage.
