Torquay is nestled on the warm South Devon coast being one of three towns along with Paignton and Brixham which form the natural east facing harbour of Torbay, sheltered from the English Channel. Torbay’s wide selection of stunning beaches, picturesque coastlines, mild climate and recreational facilities reinforce why it has rightfully earned the renowned nickname of the English Riviera.
Red House Villa is enviably positioned in one of Torquay’s most favoured districts, standing between the 460 acres of picturesque Cockington Country Park and Torquay’s stunning seafront with flag ship beach of Torre Abbey Sands, both within comfortable walking distance. Torquay’s train station is minutes away being just one stop from the main line Newton Abbot having direct links to most major cities. Local shops of Walnut Road are a saunter around the corner, boasting a Coop, independent butcher, and The Blue Walnut 23 seater cinema and café bar. An abundance of vibrant waterside bars, cafes, restaurants, shops and nightlife are found on Torquay’s promenade towards the bustling harbour and exceptional leisure facilities can be found at the English Riviera Leisure Centre and TLH Resort, both on nearby Chestnut Avenue.
The Red House Villa is an expansive Victorian Residence set in the heart of Chelston, a leafy suburb of Torquay. The property benefits from open views towards Torquay harbour and the sea at Tor Bay.
The original villa has been extended over the years, more latterly trading as a boutique hotel and leisure complex. The current owners have commenced a project to revert the building back to its residential roots as a large, unique single residence having secured the change of use. The original main house provides a comfortable home, and the later extensions now mid-phase construction, allowing a blank canvas for new owners to complete the project to their own requirements.
The building and land equally offer potential for redevelopment (subject to required permissions), occupying a plot of circa 1,650m2 a footprint of 608m2 and a total floor space of 1,406m2.
