THE PROPERTY

• Superb location • Beautifully presented accommodation • Turnkey house • No onward chain • Level gardens • Extensive accommodation with income potential Situated in a commanding position on one of Torquay's seven hills, this imposing villa enjoys an elevated position on the picturesque South Devon coast. Tucked away, but close to the harbour and Meadfoot Beach, this house can be described as a hidden gem and was previously run as a successful bed and breakfast guest house and restaurant. Dating from around 1840, Merlewood House forms the significant part of a Grade II listed residence, offering gracious accommodation incorporating, on the ground floor, a drawing room, dining room, well fitted kitchen, study/bedroom with bathroom adjacent. Upstairs there are four bedrooms, each with its own en suite bathroom. A large basement area provides a further versatile area of space, ideal for a variety of uses. The house is beautifully presented throughout, with recent improvements, including a new roof and offers the welcome addition of more land to the rear of the property. Outside, there is parking space for six vehicles, with the gardens lying to the side and incorporating a wide terrace for al-fresco dining and relaxation.
