Located in historic Barton, this 19th century Grade II-listed cottage, built originally as a house and shop circa 1850, is brimming with original character and beauty which gives a warm, homely feel while having the luxury of modern facilities, a lovely, well-stocked mature garden and the added benefit of a garage with parking in front.

Deceptively spacious, the cottage comprises two bedrooms, an office/study/occasional third bedroom, a four-piece bathroom, walk-in linen room, kitchen, dining room and a spacious lounge.

Barton, situated towards the outskirts of Torquay, offers facilities including local shops, a church, infants and primary schools situated in Barton Hill Road.

A bus service operates from Barton to the town centre.
