Description Located in the prestigious Petitor Road just yards from Torquay Golf Course, Westgate is a home of great charm and style formed from a wing of a detached Victorian villa with its own gated entrance and private courtyard and garden.
The whole property has been restored and upgraded with latest insulation and up to date shower room and kitchen fittings, all completed in high quality finish. A detached coach house with two garages and a workshop is also included and this presents great opportunities for possible adaption to studio/accommodation subject to planning permission.
Local shops in St Marychurch are only a short level walk away whilst the scenic South Devon coastal path is accessed within minutes. Torquay harbour and waterside shops and restaurants are approximately a two mile journey away
vendorinsight "The house is tucked away at the end of a cul de sac, so is very private, quiet and peaceful. The garden gets a lot of sun from late morning onwards and into the evening, so it is lovely to sit outside and read or have a cup of tea. The coach houses give the house character and provide lots of useful storage space"
The coastal path is less than a minute away; the walks and views down the coast are wonderful. The shops (including a post office) in St Marychurch are a four-minute walk away and you can find everything you need locally without going into town"

Ourarea St Marychurch is one of Torquay's most desirable districts, with its bustling 'village' ambience where a host of shops, cafes and restaurants can be found. The famous Model Village and the stunning Babbacombe Downs with funicular railway taking passengers to and from the shingle beaches of Oddicombe and Babbacombe are also close at hand.
Torquay is nestled on the warm South Devon coast being one of three towns along with Paignton and Brixham which form the natural east facing harbour of Torbay, sheltered from the English Channel. Torbay's wide selection of stunning beaches, picturesque coastline, mild climate and recreational facilities reinforce why it has rightfully earned the renowned nickname of the English Riviera.
