£580,000 Freehold

Full Details

DESCRIPTION This classic PERIOD RESIDENCE presents a versatile arrangement with the main villa sympathetically divided into TWO GRACIOUS APARTMENTS and an additional COACH HOUSE. All three units are tastefully presented and currently generating a healthy income with two units let to respectable tenants. Alternatively an ideal solution for the extended family wishing to live together yet independent. The main house also retained the staircase and could be reverted to a substantial family home with relative ease.

Warborough Mount stands toward the peak of one of Torquay’s highest locations taking full advantage of the wonderful open views in a westerly direction toward Dartmoor. Conveniently placed betwixt the amenities of Babbacombe and Wellswood on the opposite side of the hill, both providing a village ambiance with selection of picturesque beaches and host of highly regarded schools within easy reach. Warberry Copse and local Quinta field are found at the top of the road, perfect for the dog owner.

OWNERS INSIGHT "We have enjoyed many wonderful years at Warborough Mount and are reluctantly selling to downsize. It will be a sad day when the removal van arrives".

"We are going to miss the amazing sunsets and open views toward Dartmoor".

"The versatility of the property has been wonderful, and over our ownership has provided space for family and friends or generated useful income from lovely long-term tenants"

"We have taken for granted the convenience of local shops and walks for the dog on the doorstep, and being an avid golfer I can be hitting my first tee shot within 15 minutes".

LOCATION 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.

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 are all close at hand.

STEP INSIDE A sweeping brick paved driveway leads to the entrance door to the main villa, opening into a welcoming spacious reception to both apartments retaining the staircase providing easy reversion to one large home if required (subject to usual permissions).

The GROUND FLOOR APARTMENT boasts an extensive reception hall with beautiful sitting room featuring a marble fireplace and deep bay window. A formal dining room opens to a conservatory maximising the southerly aspect and additional sun room. The kitchen/breakfast room is of a generous proportion, comprehensively equipped and provisions for the range cooker for the keen chef! Two bedrooms and bathroom complete the accommodation whilst an access hatch set in the floor of the hall opens to useful cellarage with sensible head height providing great storage space.

The FIRST FLOOR APARTMENT occupies a similar footprint to the ground floor, beautifully maintained and centred around an extensive reception hall with two reception rooms, two bedrooms, a large kitchen/breakfast room and bathroom with separate WC.

The COACH HOUSE is separate from the main villa enjoying two entrances and versatile accommodation arranged over two levels. The ground floor affords a reception room, bedroom, shower room and kitchen whilst the first floor boasts a bright sitting room having an open outlook, and main bedroom where an en-suite could be created (subject to the usual permissions).

STEP OUTSIDE A gated approach and sweeping brick paved driveway with additional pull off area outside the Coach house presents ample parking facilities. A lawn with Torbay Palm sits directly outside the main house with enclosed, generous paved terrace to the side enjoying the southerly aspect with direct access from the conservatory and sun room. To the rear of the Coach House and Ground Floor Apartment is a courtyard with outside water tap and brick built store.
