Apartment Council tax band: B Tenure: Leasehold

Outstanding and unusual duplex apartment set in heart of Chelston less than 1/2 mile from the sea front and even closer to the local shops on Walnut Road. Part of a development of just 17 apartments formed from what was once of Torquay's famed Victorian Villas, the property has some unusual characteristics which makes it quite unique and stand out from the crowd. Firstly the property has its own private entrance at ground level with remaining accommodation set over two stories much like a maisonette and with additional accommodation and storage space not normally found in a property of this nature.

What appealed to the vendor when buying this property is that it has minimal attachment to neighbouring properties so privacy, peace and quiet is more readily available that in more traditional apartments. The property comes with an allocated end of line parking space (easier access and more space) and access to communal gardens and grounds along with visitor parking. On the second story landing there a most useful area that has in the past accommodated guests but now serves as the vendors office space. In addition to some super internal features, the property from the rear enjoys a lovely, elevated outlook over Chelston and up towards St Marychurch.

Recently converted and benefiting from additional works since, the property is beautifully presented throughout and would make an ideal home, second home by the sea or perhaps even a buy to let investment noting 6 month plus letting required.

If you are looking for a modestly priced apartment near the sea and local amenities such as a lovely pub, café, hairdressers and many other independent retailers on Walnut Road anchored by a CO OP then please take a look at the photos, floorplan and tour then pick up the phone and book a viewing for this unusual and we think most appealing property.

Accommodation in brief on the ground comprises of a private entrance and stairs to the first floor. On the first floor can be found a wide landing space, dual aspect living room and separate kitchen. On the second floor can be found a large landing area currently used as an office space but has in the past accommodated guests, bathroom and bedroom.
