  • DETACHED VILLA
  • CHAIN FREE
  • SEVEN BEDROOMS
  • FLEXIBLE ACCOMODATION
  • FULLY RENOVATED THROUGHOUT
  • CLOSE TO SEA FRONT


An impressive period villa located close to the sea front with over 8500sq ft of versatile and exquisite accommodation.
Description
This stunning home offers a unique opportunity to acquire a detached residence with flexible accommodation in one of the most beautiful parts of south Devon. This charming home has been lovingly restored by the current owners to present a welcoming home with many luxuries.
Arranged over three floors with over 8500 sq ft of accommodation, this villa has the potential for multi generational living as well as being a good space for a growing family. There are a number of sections to the property with their own private entrances.
Currently the property is used as a large family home, but it very easily divides into four main areas with the majority of accommodation forming the major part, a generous one bedroom ground floor apartment and then two first floor one bedroom apartments.
Any of the ground floor reception rooms could be attributed the "wow" factor but clearly the kitchen / breakfast room is the heart of the home. Arranged around a substantial central island, it is integrated with a range of appliances including two double width ovens, three warming drawers, a six-ring induction hob, two dishwashers and an instant hot water tap and wine cooler. There is a wide range of units and central island with storage all topped with bespoke Italian granite worktops. Three sets of French doors lead to one of the terraces and garden beyond which is the perfect spot for al fresco dining. The kitchen has an adjoining huge utility room which houses a further range of base and wall units.

Another of the main reception rooms is an exquisite sitting room. Formerly an indoor swimming pool, the proportions are extremely generous with notable features such as a curved wooden ceiling and impressive feature fireplace with gas fire.

Beyond the two main living areas, the ground floor offers a formal dining room with large bay window and French doors to the garden as well as a second sitting room / snug and adjoining conservatory style sunroom which overlooks the garden.

The ground floor also offers a stylish guest toilet and large linen cupboard, a second study and extensive office space and storage area which has also previously been used as a gym. 
The ground floor boasts a large bedroom suite comprising a beautiful, dual aspect study, a generous double bedroom with large dressing room and ensuite wet room. This could be separated from the main house and accessed via a private external entrance. 

Stairs rise from the main entrance hall to a mezzanine floor which continues the generous proportions currently laid out as a very large en-suite double bedroom with exceptional dressing room space. It could be turned into a two-bedroom suite with an extra bathroom. This leads across a small hallway to another very large suite. This suite offers an open plan kitchen / living room, a generous double bedroom with en-suite bathroom. Both these suites can be separately accessed from their own private external access.

Up another flight of the main staircase, is a fabulous principal suite which also continues the luxury feel with a large bay window overlooking the garden towards the sea with extensive fitted wardrobes in the twin dressing rooms and an ensuite bathroom.

On the same level is another generous en-suite bedroom. Continuing up the stairs are two more en-suite bedrooms, one with generous eaves storage. 

Gardens and grounds 
Stuart Lodge benefits from two distinct garden areas which offer level and enclosed areas which are low maintenance currently with synthetic grass and planters with shrubs and trees. 

The front garden area beautifully compliments the kitchen and dining areas and provides the perfect spot for morning coffee of al fresco dining with views of Tor Bay. 

To the rear, the main garden is generous and level, again with low maintenance in mind. There are a number of storage areas / sheds and access to a large parking area for numerous vehicles which is also accessed off Rousdon Road. There is access to the car park via a private lane beside the house and also via a right-of-way across Maxton Lodge’s car park.


Location

The villa occupies a generous, elevated position off Rousdown Road in the leafy suburb of Chelston with views towards the sea and Tor Bay. There are shops close by in Chelston Village while Torquay town centre offers a diverse and wonderful range of shops, boutiques and galleries. The property is also only a 5-minute walk to the sea front and mainline train station.

Torquay’s bustling promenade and harbour also offers an abundance of waterside cafes, bars and an ever-increasing range of dining experiences from beach front cafes to a Michelin starred restaurant. Torquay is a typical seaside town offering seaside living at its best with sheltered sailing waters and moorings, one of the best harbors in Europe, a beautiful coastline and clean beaches. It also benefits from a number of Grammar Schools offering 'outstanding' education.

The southwest coast path, Babbacombe and Oddicombe beaches, Torquay Golf Club and other English Riviera delights are all within easy distance. 

The university city of Exeter is approximately 23 miles away, with an international airport and access to the motorway network. Torquay offers a regular train service to London Paddington via Torquay or Newton Abbot.
