This large detached family home occupies a prominent position on the southern slopes of Great Hill overlooking Torbay and enjoying stunning panoramic views of the town and sea beyond. Built in the 1970's by Mrs. Cavanna, the spacious accommodation is very bright and sunny. With a large almost flat garden that extends over three sides of the property, it is a well-kept house that enjoys sunshine from morning to evening due to its orientation.
Barton Hill Road offers a good location for local shops and there is a bus stop nearby. The Willows shopping center and St Marychurch shopping district with more extensive amenities are a short drive away. Good local schools are within easy reach and the South Devon Highway or the A379 provide links for those commuting out of town.
EPC rating: D
“For many years we have enjoyed living in Watcombe Park with its beautiful tree lined avenues, friendly community and access to local shops. What we didn't have was the amazing view from our previous home, so we decided to move there.” Our current Swedwell Road address adds to that in abundance. Having outgrown our previous home it was great to have so much more space but now we realize that a 4 bedroom house might be a bit bigger than we need so we decided to move on, smaller to become and to start a new chapter in our lives. We will miss enjoying the sweeping, ever-changing views of the skyline and bay, especially on a summer evening over a glass of wine. We want the new residents to do everything we can. We have had a lot of fun with this beautiful home.”
