Lower Woodfield Road, Torquay
Welcome to Lisburne House, a truly stunning home in Torquay on the South Devon Coast. An archetypal Victorian residence, which is within walking distance of Torquay Marina. The house has been lovingly restored over recent years by our client at considerable expense and great attention to detail.
SELLERS INSIGHT "When we first walked into Lisburne House we immediately saw past the renovation needed and visualised the home it could be for our family. Never fazed by a daunting project to many, we sourced an exceptional team of local professionals to reinstate the house back to former glory yet with all the modern conveniences expected of a fine home.
High on our priority list was space for home working and the option to accommodate extended family or guests, with the lower apartment a major attribute. The apartment would equally suit a perfect holiday let or long term tenancy.
It was not just the potential of the house which attracted us, it was the lifestyle. We can be on Meadfoot Beach or Torquay's Harbour and Yacht Marina within a matter of minutes. A selection of excellent restaurants are within comfortable walking distance including the Old Vienna at the end of the road, and Michelin star Elephant, Orange Tree and Number 7 all close the harbour."
INTRODUCTION Welcome to Lisburne House, a truly stunning home in Torquay on the South Devon Coast. An archetypal Victorian residence, built in the era when Torquay was favoured by the upper classes as a retreat for fresh air, mild climate and clear bathing waters, which remains the case today. The house has been lovingly restored over recent years by our client at considerable expense and great attention to detail. Lisburne House provides spacious living accommodation with exceptional versatility to accommodate home working, extended family or potential to generate a healthy income from letting of the beautiful garden level apartment, currently connected to the main residence yet easily separated.
The extensive renovation project extended beyond the main home and auxiliary accommodation into the garden enjoying expansive terracing where wide steps lead to the lawn and further terrace directly outside the lower apartment, proving areas for relaxation or entertainment spaces whether seeking sun or shade throughout the day.
LOCATION Lisburne House stands within easy reach of the picturesque Meadfoot Beach, a haven for water sports, and Ilsham Green with wooded Ilsham Valley leading to Wellswood with its village ambience, renowned Primary School and well supported St Matthias Church. Approximately half a mile to the west lies Torquay's Harbour and Yacht Marina where the sea front promenade sweeps around to the flag ship Tor Abbey Sands, Torquay Tennis Club and Leisure Centre.
Torquay is the largest town in Devon and along with the neighbouring towns of Paignton and Brixham which form the wider Torbay, virtually every need is catered for. Whatever your sport or leisure activity, there will be a club close at hand. Kents Cavern Prehistoric Caves are nearby in Wellswood, whilst Paignton Zoo Environmental Park is one of the largest in Europe providing an exceptional day out for visitors and equally popular with locals utilising their annual passes. Brixham is one of the UK's most prolific fishing ports and a keen Rugby town, with the ferry from Torquay taking you over to the multi coloured cottage strewn hillsides overlooking the bustling harbour.
The charming market town of Newton Abbot which hosts Newton Abbot Racecourse, one of the country's leading summer jumps racecourses is approximately 8 miles. Newton Abbot is also the gateway to the magnificent Dartmoor National Park, equally accessible at circa 18 miles to Haytor.
