The details

A rare opportunity to purchase a fabulous, substantial semi-detached Victorian villa with five bedrooms, a roof terrace, conservatory, an enclosed rear garden, a cellar, parking and sea views, in the seaside town of Teignmouth.

A block-paved driveway provides parking for at least one car and a couple of shallow steps lead to the entrance beside the front garden with a terrace of paving and walled beds of plants, shrubs and ornamental trees. Inside, it is well-presented with light and neutral decor throughout, and is arranged over four floors offering spacious and versatile accommodation for a growing family. It has retained many period features including generous room sizes with high ceilings and plaster coving, sash windows, picture rails and deep skirting boards and it feels warm and welcoming with gas central heating, despite its generous proportions.

The entrance hallway has an attractive slate-tiled floor, hanging space for coats and a convenient ground floor shower room which has a large shower, a WC, a basin, a medicine cabinet with mirror doors and a chrome heated towel rail.

The inner hallway as an elegant staircase rising to the upper floors, bare pine floorboards and leads to a second entrance at the side of the property.

A fabulous kitchen/breakfast room has a tiled floor and is filled with light from sash windows to the garden and French doors to the conservatory. The kitchen has worktops of solid granite and hardwood with tiled splashbacks and a range of bespoke country kitchen-style cupboards with matching wall cabinets providing ample storage space. There is a granite butler sink, a cooker and a separate Esse range providing the excellent cooking facilities, floor space for an upright fridge/freezer and plenty of room for a table and seating, ideal for casual dining and a wonderful social space. The conservatory has a decoratively tiled floor and a door to the garden, making a fabulous sunny space in which to enjoy a book or a glossy magazine perhaps.

A separate utility room has a large built-in cupboard, more bespoke cupboards with solid hardwood worktops, a butler sink, tiled splashbacks with plumbing for a washing machine and space for another appliance. A wall-mounted condensing combi-boiler provides the central heating and hot water on demand.

A wonderful dining room has dark-stained floorboards, a large sash window to the front providing plenty of light and cupboards with feature lighting, built into the recesses on either side of the former fireplace. There is ample space for a table and seating for eight or more places, perfect for a dinner party or a family celebration.

The sitting room is flooded with light from two sash windows from where there are views over the town to the sea beyond, and a wonderful, possibly original, fireplace makes a lovely feature and focal point for the room.

A door from the entrance hallway leads onto stairs down to the cellar where there is a huge workshop, a storeroom, a cupboard beside the stairs and a door to the garden.

Upstairs, on the first floor, there are four spacious, light and airy double bedrooms one with a fabulous bay window, two of which have superb, elevated views the town rooftops to the sea beyond. The smallest bedroom is currently used as a study, ideal for those working from home. The family bathroom has an elegant rolltop bath, a separate shower, a heated towel rail and a basin, and off the half landing, a decoratively glazed door leads into a cloakroom with a WC and corner basin.

The staircase continues up to the top floor where there is the master bedroom, a fabulous double with pine floorboards and a dormer window to the front and windows and French doors onto a roof terrace. There is a large wardrobe with a clothes rail and a door providing access to the remaining loft space. A Velux skylight illuminates the staircase. The roof terrace has a floorboard-effect ceramic-tiled floor and a galvanised balustrade, making a superb outside space for sharing a bottle of wine with loved ones while enjoying the sunshine and wonderful view over the town and the sea.

Outside, the rear garden is level, beautifully maintained and fully enclosed making it safe for both children and pets. There is a terrace of paving and a neat lawn with a pond and well-stocked beds of shrubs, flowers and ornamental trees, making a great outside space for entertaining, be it alfresco dining or a barbecue. Decorative wrought-iron double gates at the side of the property provide alternative access to the driveway, and there is a convenient outside tap. Additional parking is available on-road.
