8 Torwood Gables description

8 Torwood Gables is a 3 bedroom mid terraced stone built house that is one of a number of properties converted from a former school building in Meadfoot Lane, Torquay.

The house still has original wooden beams and windows and has recently been refurbished to a high standard, with luxury fittings and contemporary furnishings. It has a solid wood flooring in living area, ceramic tiles in kitchen and bathroom and fitted carpet on the stairs and in the bedrooms.

The location is quiet, yet is a few minutes walk down hill to the town centre and harbour where you will find The Princess Theatre, and the pleasant waterfront walks along the marina. The popular Fleet Walk Shopping Centre is also close by.

You will find numerous restaurants and bars on Torwood Street and around the inner harbour plus upmarket restaurant, The Orange Tree, is just a 1 minute walk away in Parkhill Road. Living Coasts, Torquays coastal zoo, is just 2 minutes walk.

Torre Abbey Sands and Meadfoot beach are within walking distance, as is the Torquay stretch of the South West coast path. The medieval Torre Abbey is around 5 minutes walk away and other nearby attractions such as the Babbacombe Model Village, Kents Cavern and Bygones are a short drive away.
