DESCRIPTION Standing in an imposing position overlooking Lyme Bay this DETACHED HOUSE is of a most attractive award-winning design in the Canadian style, with spacious central hallway and rooms radiating off. The very bright accommodation is fully double glazed and features lovely sea views from many windows.

OWNER’S INSIGHT "We enjoy living here for its tranquillity and lovely open sea views. The great advantage in that this is a no through road so it’s very quiet. Added to this, we are just a few minutes’ from the excellent shops in Wellswood and there is a bus to the town centre if we need it. Over the years we have also enjoyed our private and level rear garden that gets the sun all day."
STEP INSIDE Approached over a tarmacadam driveway, a flight of wide steps lead up to the front door opening to an ENTRANCE PORCH, which in turn leads to the spacious RECEPTION HALL where a glazed door opens to the lovely bright SITTING ROOM with picture windows overlooking the front garden and a stone fireplace with a marble hearth. This room flows through to the DINING AREA which also flows through to the open plan KITCHEN, fitted with a range of modern units and from here a double glazed door opens to the patio and rear garden. From the dining area sliding doors open to the SUN LOUNGE, fully double glazed with door also leading out to the rear garden.
From the reception hall wide stairs lead to the FIRST FLOOR BEDROOM LEVEL. Radiating off a pleasant square landing are four very useful bedrooms. Bedroom 1 has an en-suite shower room, with bedrooms 1 and 2 have lovely sea views over Lyme Bay and Torquay and the rear bedrooms enjoy aspects over the rear gardens. There is also a FAMILY BATHROOM on this level. From the main hallway a door leads through to a CLOAKROOM and stairs lead down to a second level with a UTILITY ROOM with a range of storage cupboards and laundry provisions. Adjoining this is a useful STUDY/BEDROOM 5, also enjoying views over the rear garden. A door from the lower hallway leads through to a DOUBLE GARAGE with electric door and under floor storage cupboard.
STEP OUTSIDE The gardens are especially private with a lawned area to the rear surrounded by flower borders and central rockery and pond. Mature hedging and trees give a tranquil setting which enjoys sunshine throughout the day. The formal front garden borders the driveway and sets off the house to its best advantage.
