- Modernisation Required
- Close to Beaches
A substantial and spacious semi detached house standing in a large garden, which has not been on the market since 1962 when the current family bought it. This property requires extensive modernisation and also has scope for extending subject to planning.
Located close to all the amenities that Preston has to offer including local and national shops, main bus routes, Doctors and of course the beach at Preston Sands. Easy road access to the ring road and the main routes throughout Torbay.
The accommodation currently provides entrance hallway with three reception rooms, double shower room, kitchen and garden room. On the first floor are 4/5 bedrooms, bathroom and separate WC.
Externally there is ample space subject to planning for an extension or double garage and good sized gardens to the side and rear which are in need of some horticultural care.
As this property does need modernisation the details are minimal. It should, however, be noted that the property was built in 1912 and retains many of its original features including, fireplaces/surrounds, picture rails and of course spacious rooms with high ceilings.
