3,865 sq. ft.
Beautiful sea views
Washington House forms the principle part of an elegant Grade II Listed Victorian villa, located in a peaceful woodland setting on the outskirts of Torquay, moments from the beautiful and secluded Watcombe Beach. The property, standing at almost 4000 sq. ft., occupies the majority of the grand Victorian residence, dating from 1825. The house features spacious, elegant accommodation arranged over two floors with well-proportioned reception rooms, high ceilings and ornate original detailing including ceiling coving, stained windows and wood panelling.

On the ground floor there are two large interconnecting reception rooms; the drawing room and dining room, both of which welcome plenty of natural light through large bay windows, with the drawing room also including an open fireplace with an attractive limestone surround. The kitchen/breakfast room is a wonderfully light and airy space, with full-height south-facing windows offering far-reaching views of the gardens and sea beyond, stylish cream kitchen units, granite worktops, an island and a stainless steel range cooker. There is also a study on the ground floor with access to the rear garden, which could also be used as a fifth bedroom if required. An extensive basement, split into three rooms, provides further storage options.

There are four generous-size double bedrooms on the first floor, each enjoying picturesque views through large sash windows, plus two family bathrooms and a fully tiled shower room.

Washington House is set in mature gardens extending to approximately 2.9 acres, with delightful sea views. A double garage with an electric roller door and parking area is found to the front, while the gardens extend predominantly to the east, towards the coastline. There are areas of landscaped lawn, meadows and flowerbeds, well stocked with a wide variety of colourful plants, shrubs and flowers. There is also a large paved terrace area, ideal for soaking up the sun, entertaining and enjoying al fresco dining, while woodland envelopes the gardens and provides a sense of privacy and seclusion.
