DESCRIPTION Set in a prestigious cul-de-sac of similar calibre homes, this FINE DETACHED HOUSE enjoys SEA VIEWS from the rear and a pleasant green outlook. The property is perfect for modern living yet traditional in design, with well proportioned rooms flowing out into the rear garden via the generous conservatory being well planned for low maintenance with extensive decked upper tier and lower tier planted with fruit trees. Ample parking is provided on the double width driveway and large garage.
Monterey Close is serenely set on the fringe of Cockington where the pathway leading into the picturesque Country Park can be joined at the base of the hill, accessing the circa 460 acres of stunning meadows, lakes and woodland. Torquay’s sea front is also within a 5 minute saunter with Train Station at the nearside and where the promenade can be followed to the flagship Tor Abbey Sands, Princess Theatre, Yacht Marina and harbourside.
OWNERS INSIGHT "One of the biggest things we shall miss when leaving Monterey Close is the convenience. Living here we are just a short stroll to Torquay seafront, with the harbourside being almost a level walk away, we are also within easy walking distance of the picturesque Cockington Country Park with its scenic walks and we also have a good range of local shops in nearby Walnut Road".
"The house offers well proportioned, bright accommodation and one of the things that attracted us when we purchased was the large, light and spacious principle rooms"
"Whilst still living in a town environment being situated in a cul-de-sac it is surprising the level of peace and tranquility that is enjoyed here, yet only being a few minutes walk from Torquay’s beautiful seafront".
"We can honestly say that we have thoroughly enjoyed our 15 years living here in Monterey Close. The family have enjoyed growing up in such a friendly neighbourhood and we have found the Close an extremely welcoming place to live, something I am sure that will be difficult to replicate elsewhere".
