A charming four bedroom detached family home located in the sought after Shiphay Lane. The property has been well loved by the current family and in particular the garden which is superb for any form of entertaining. It offers plenty of size in a traditional layout and would lend itself to a family. The property also benefits from plenty of off road parking and is a very short distance from both the Grammar Schools and Torbay hospital.

As you approach the front door you are greeted by an incredibly welcoming entrance with a few well laid steps leading to the front door. Upon entering the door you come to the entrance hall which gives access to all rooms on the ground floor and has stairs rising to the first floor. The bathroom is located on the right and has the benefit of a separate shower cubicle as well as a bath, the room is of overall good-size and has feature tiling. The hall takes a sharp right turn and on our left is the master bedroom. It is a lovely bright room with plenty of space for a large bed and additional bedroom furniture. The lounge is situated next door and again being at the front of the house is particularly bright and airy, featuring wall lights and a centrepiece fireplace with surround.
Across the hallway you have the kitchen which provides plenty of work surface space for those who are keen cooks. This room also offers direct access to the rear garden and has a delightful range style cooker that will be remaining. At the end of the hallway are two further rooms; the study and the fourth bedroom/diner offering flexible use to suit the occupants needs. The study is of modest size and offers plenty of space for a home office. The fourth bedroom has natural light coming from two aspects with the french doors to the side and a further window to the rear. This room also has an airing cupboard housing the boiler.

Heading upstairs you have a rather quaint landing with exposed wooden beams. The landing give access to two further bedrooms and a toilet. The convenient toilet has a low level WC and wash hand basin which primarily serves the upstairs bedrooms meaning they don't have to travel downstairs to the bathroom during the night. Both bedrooms on the first floor are of a good-size with space for double beds and plenty of bedroom furniture. The rear of the property has a particularly pleasant view looking out and across the garden.

To the front of the property you have wrought iron gates opening inwards to the drive. The driveway offers ample parking, there is also decorative stone chipping can provide additional parking space. The front garden is hedge lined adding a fantastic degree of privacy. The driveway leads up to the right side of the property where you then have an access gate to the rear.
As you go through the gate and into the rear of the property you come into a patio area which is a great seating area and currently used for BBQ's. You also have in front of you what was formerly the garage. This building has french double glazed doors along with power and light, it is currently used for storage but could be used as guest accommodation or even returned to a garage if necessary.
The majority of the garden is split over several levels. Steps lead from the patio area up to a large lawn again with a few steps going up to a large decked area. This area currently has an outdoor bar with a large gazebo over and is a great space to enjoy the sun. There is also access from here to what was once a pool which could of course be restored. From the patio you again have a small step up to two further tiers, the first tier is a level lawn ideal for young children as it is secure, the second tier is again laid to lawn.

This detached family home is located in a sought after area of Torquay, close by to the Grammar Schools and Torbay Hospital. A local bus service runs nearby providing flexible transport to many different destinations and Torre Train Station is just 0.7 miles away. The local country pub 'The Devon Dumpling' is situated to the next road, providing a warm atmosphere and a great social scene. A local parade of shops and amenities are also close by including the popular Co-op and a post office. 

Torquay is home to an array of picturesque landmarks and local attractions to include Living Coasts, Princess Theatre, Kents Cavern and the Model Village. A variety of beaches are on offer for both sun loungers or water sport enthusiasts with the power boat racing event occurring annually. The new South Devon Highway provides a faster route to the A38 with a journey time of approximately 30minutes to The Cathedral City of Exeter.
