Doorsteps are pleased to present this fully refurbished characterful property which dates back to the 1850’s. This deceptively spacious chain free three bedroom home is set over three storeys with the added benefit of a double cellar below. The house has been fully updated throughout and it is tucked away from the main Babbacombe road, and adjacent to the delightful Tessier Gardens, yet within walking distance of the Babbacombe Downs and St Marychurch with all it’s facilities.

The property briefly consists of: Open plan lounge with feature fireplace and dining room with stairs rising to the first floor. Modern fitted kitchen with integrated appliances and door to the side enclosed garden. To the first floor, two double bedrooms and an unusually large modern bathroom with separate double shower enclosure and bath. To the third floor, a further double bedroom. From the dining room, stairs lead down to the double cellar providing ample storage below. This could easily be converted to more liveable space. The property also benefits from uPVC double glazing and gas central heating. Allocated parking for one vehicle situated within a private car park as you enter Furrough Cross Lane, paid annually along with immediate parking to the side of the property.


Babbacombe is one of Torquay's most desirable districts, renowned for the stunning Babbacombe Downs with funicular railway taking passengers to and from the shingle beaches of Oddicombe and Babbacombe. The famous Model Village, Cary Parks with tennis and bowls clubs and wide selection of shops, cafes and restaurants within St Marychurch are all 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.

By Train: Torquay Train Station has some direct lines to London Paddington and Birmingham and is just one stop from the main line Newton Abbot. By Air: Exeter Airport provides both UK and international flights. By Sea: Torquay Marina provides a safe haven for boats in all weathers, sheltered from the prevailing south-westerly winds. Regional Cities of Exeter & Plymouth approximately 22 miles and 32 miles respectively. Magnificent Dartmoor National park approximately 12 miles.

The property measures approx. 1245 sq ft (115.67 sq mtrs)
