Set elevated in its plot behind secure electric gates, the property affords generous living space arranged over three levels being thoughtfully planned with the reception rooms opening onto a private garden and balcony which both face a westerly aspect taking full advantage of the breathtaking sea views.

‘The Riviera’ is enviably tucked back from the hustle and bustle in a peaceful setting yet just a short saunter from the vibrant waterside bars, restaurants, Princess Theatre and array of leisure activities.

Approached via a secure electronic gate and sweeping driveway leading to the parking facilities and garaging, a covered storm porch with double glazed door opens to the reception hall with telephone door entry system to the gated approach. Off the hall is a cloakroom with WC, wash hand basin, half-tiled walls, electric consumer unit and extractor fan.

The kitchen is fitted with a quality range of units and a range of appliances. A breakfast bar separates the kitchen and sitting/dining room, which features central double-glazed doors with sidescreen windows overlooking and opening to the private garden from where outstanding sea and coastal views into Tor Bay are enjoyed.
