About our home

We live in one of the most beautiful areas of South West England, overlooking the sea in the centre of Torbay. Our home is a 2 storey detached house . Accommodation includes, on the ground floor: at the rear of the house a good sized living area with sofas, fireplace and TV and glass doors through to a dining room with piano. There are sea views from the lounge area facing south east towards a headland, with sun all day and beautiful sunrises. Opposite these rooms is the one I use as a studio/office, which could be turned into a third bedroom if required. At the moment I have a desk, tables and computer and painting materials in there. At the rear of the house is the brightly lit, fully equipped kitchen with hob, oven, microwave, fridge, toaster, lots of cupboards, etc. , which leads into the sun lounge. We usually eat here because of its spectacular views over Torbay. A half glazed door leads here onto the raised decking with views, table & chairs and umbrella for sunning/al-fresco dining. Upstairs are two bedrooms, a spacious master one with double bed, and a slightly smaller second bedroom with single bed that converts easily into a double. Also both sofas in the lounge convert into double beds for occasional guests. At the front is a low maintenance garden with parking either side, and at the rear steps lead down from the decking onto the sheltered rear garden, with two levels of lawn and raised flower beds, hedges and fencing, all easily maintained.

Torbay is east facing and about four miles across. It is one of the jewels of the south coast and the centre of the “English Riviera”. It has a mild climate with its own variety of palm trees. There are excellent locations for walking and rambling in the area, including Dartmoor and Exmoor in the vicinity and the famous “South Coast Walking Path” running right along Torbay; and of course there are ample facilities for swimming and water sports. There are three towns within Torbay: Torquay in the north with its victorian heritage, Paignton in the centre with its wide beaches and the important fishing town of Brixham on the southern tip.
