The Laurels is a most attractive Victorian double fronted detached house built circa 1863.
The property is well set back from Torquay Road behind a stone wall. The front garden is set out in lawn with a gravelled driveway providing off-street parking for several cars.
Extending to approximately 229 sq. m. / 2,465 sq. ft. of spacious and well-proportioned accommodation. The front door opens into an entrance hall either side of which are the formal reception rooms.
To the left of the entrance hall is the dining room with a large bay window and marble fireplace which in turn opens to a sitting room. On the right hand side of the entrance hall is the drawing room with an inbuilt solid fuel burning stove.
To the rear of the ground floor is a lovely family kitchen with cream painted timber floor and wall mounted units with granite worktops and a two oven gas fired Aga.
Further ground floor accommodation includes a conservatory, utility room, shower room and fantastic family / playroom / bar opening onto the rear garden.
At the first return above the kitchen there is a large family bathroom, an additional WC and a hot press, three double bedrooms and a single bedroom on the first floor, all with ample wardrobe space.
Features of The Laurels include original cornicing and timber shuttered sash windows.
The Laurels is situated on approximately 0.4 acres of gardens mostly laid out in lawn, mature hedging and shrubbery.
There is a patio area to the rear and plentiful seating areas to enjoy the sun throughout the day. There is also a large side garden which would easily provide vehicular access to the rear of the property which now accommodates a disused tennis court.
The Laurels shows obvious potential for significant extension and refurbishment together with a possible separate dwelling to the rear, subject to the relevant planning permission.
