An exceptional 7 bedroom Victorian house
Woodlands is a substantial Victorian house benefitting from many period features. The accommodation retains a multitude of original features including ornate coving and ceilings, deep architraves, original fireplaces and sash windows. A much cherished family home, the property offers the opportunity for two family living or home and income from the rear wing, which could also be re-instated to the principal accommodation. Approached across a carriage driveway leading to the front door, the ground floor has three reception rooms, kitchen and conservatory with 5 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms to the first floor, excellent cellarage and a further room to the tower.
The property is accessed through two pillars across a carriage driveway which is bound by mature trees, hedging and shrub borders. There is a secondary entrance onto Rawlyn road which is connected to the Seaway lane entrance by a gravelled drive and parking area. The principal garden lies to the south side with a brick paved terrace adjacent to the property and steps rising to an original canopy verandah. The gardens to the front and side of Woodlands are level and laid to lawn whilst being edged by mature shrubs. Contained within the garden is a swimming pool and summer house.
Positioned on Seaway lane, Woodlands is found on a quiet route between Torquay seafront and Cockington valley.
Torquay is situated on the south Devon coast benefiting from a south-facing aspect and miles of sandy beaches. There are a number of excellent state and private schools within easy reach including three well-regarded Grammar schools. The happening harbour-side has a myriad of restaurants and continental cafés; here you will find Torquays international deep-water marina. For those who enjoy life on the ocean wave the English Riviera is perfect with many beaches within the Bay, all beautiful, some secluded.
Communication links include a branch line railway to the inter-city network at Newton Abbot with trains to London, Bristol and the North of England.
Woodlands is 33 minutes From the M5 south Exeter services. Follow the A38 south towards Torquay. Stay on this road until you reach the South Devon Highway.
