Description

The perfect romantic fusion of Regency splendour and sea views!

Situated along the impressive sweeping Hesketh Crescent, and overlooking manicured grounds which lead down to the beautiful Meadfoot Beach and dramatic Devon coastline beyond, this wonderfully presented historic 1848 first floor holiday home provides the ideal romantic retreat for your time here in Torquay! With a balcony that allows undisturbed sea views and where the sun can be literally soaked up, this is an apartment that provides luxury and comfort in abundance as well as being the perfect spot for exploring all the Torquay has to offer.

The Balcony: 1 bedroom with z-bed if required, 1 bathroom & sea views. Lovely sunny outlook with oversized Victorian sash windows, balcony & genuine Regency character features plus a private parking space within the gates of the crescent.

First floor apartment (one level on the 1st floor)

The typical high ceilings of Regency first floor rooms can be enjoyed by guests in the property, with a beautiful and grand open plan living and dining room enjoying regal dimensions as well as splendid 180 degrees sea views from its trio of floor length Victorian sash windows.

An ornate marble fireplace with an electric stove fireplace adds ambience and romance to relaxed evenings in. The comfortable pair of sofas provides the ideal home from home comfort with a flat screen HD Freeview TV with DVD player and library and a CD player with MP3 and iPod function all easily to hand.

A charming fully fitted separate kitchen is situated just off the living room and is perfectly equipped for preparing dinner parties, with an electric hob, oven, toaster, microwave, kettle, coffee maker, dishwasher & washer/dryer.

A stylish dining area is situated in the elegant living room next to the large windows which can be opened to enjoy a fine sea breeze. Guests can further enjoy an evening aperitif or delicious home cooked meal at the pretty breakfast table, which is provided outside on the sunny balcony.

Guests can also enjoy unwinding in the beautiful master bedroom which is finished in chic French-style furniture, pretty hand painted oriental style Cole & Son wallpaper and boasts the same glorious high ceilings and spacious layout of the main reception room. A King size bed ensures guests enjoy a full night's rest and a flat screen TV with integral DVD player so you need not rush to enjoy your favourite show or movie is also provided for convenience.

Additional guests who are less than 10 years old may also be accommodated to the fold up Z Bed - which can be provided upon request.

A modern fitted shower room completes the internal accommodation and offer a luxurious hotel-like feel.

Outside

The idyllic balcony views span across the tranquil Meadfoot beach and the grand sweeping Hesketh Crescent, which also features a selection of wonderful outdoor eating areas & restaurants to enjoy during your stay!

Parking

There is one private parking space provided with this apartment which is on the left just through the gates of crescent.

Location

Situated on the seafront, this apartment is close to shops and activities. The nearby beach offers swimming, paddling or rock-pooling depending on the weather. Restaurants are within walking distance and there is a bus stop just outside the crescent gates, while the location offers fabulous activities within easy travel.

Things to do

As well as a lovely choice of restaurants along Hesketh Crescent guests can also pay a day or week's membership fee to enjoy the facilities of the Osborne Hotel Health Club, with the indoor swimming pool, tennis court, gym and sauna for guests use if this optional extra is enjoyed.

Torquay's waterfront is the focus of life in the town. Here you'll find the palm-lined promenade, seafront gardens, a lively harbour and an international marina. The new Living Coasts attraction adds to the variety of the new waterfront and the illuminated bridge is a great backdrop to a relaxing evening drink. Yet within minutes of Torquay town centre there are beautiful beaches easily accessible by foot, road or sea.

There are 22 miles of coastline, cliffs, coves and beaches and walks to rival any in the South West of England, with a climate that belongs somewhere much further south. There are opportunities for surfing, safe swimming, diving, sailing, angling and wonderful opportunities to study the natural wildlife at your leisure.
