DESCRIPTION This PERIOD DETACHED LODGE stands on the fringe of Torquay close to the wooded hillside leading down to Watcombe Cove. The discrete facade hides extensive walled gardens with further parcel of woodland, currently left to nature, which in total we understand covers approximately an ACRE OF LAND. The versatile living space currently affords a ground floor bedroom suite and first floor home office overlooking and opening directly to the gardens, however could potentially create a two bedroom main house with cottage annexe with relative ease (subject to the usual permissions).
The amenities at nearby St Marychurch can be found roughly a mile’s distance offering banking facilities, shops, medical practice and churches; whilst The Willows shopping district is also easily accessible. The scenic South Devon coastal footpath can be joined just a stone’s throw away leading towards either Maidencombe and Shaldon or St Marychurch and Torquay.
