  • Full of character
  • 2 double bedrooms and 2 reception rooms
  • Bathroom/W.C.
  • Kitchen/diner
  • Utility and outside W.C.

  • Available now, with no onward 'chain'
  • Viewing recommended - key in office!

This Grade II Listed period terrace cottage is situated in a very popular location, within easy walking distance of the town centre amenities and harbourside, making it a perfect 'lock it and leave it' holiday home or retirement base.

The cottage is full of character, with much exposed stone and timberwork, ceiling beams, window lintels and shutters, giving the property the feel of a classic cottage. However, the property has been in long ownership and would now benefit from updating and improvement.

The accommodation is larger than an initial glance might suggest, being spread over 4 floors and currently offering 2 double bedrooms and 2 reception rooms.  There is also a good-size kitchen/diner and a bathroom.

There is a patio area to the rear, (accessed from the top floor bedroom), which enjoys some lovely views over the harbour and Torbay.  To the rear is an outside utility room/store and w.c.

Viewing of this 'chain free' property is highly recommended.
