Property of The Week: Grand Manor offering potential for future greatness

Torbay Weekly

A stunning property on Ash Hill Road has become available to purchase and a wonderful opportunity to own one of the great homes in Our Naturally Inspiring Bay.

This grand Manor House is set in approximately half an acre in the heart of Torquay, which offers immense potential for creating a stunning family home, income possibilities for use as holiday flats, or development options to convert into quality flats or a boutique hotel (subject to planning).

Richmond Manor is a grand late 1850’s Victorian detached property. The property sits tucked away above the town centre and is approached from Ash Hill Road via a sweeping drive, providing ample parking, with the benefit of a garage to the side. The property enjoys a sunny walled rear garden, with sea views.

Currently arranged as a combination of one-bedroom flats and studio flats with owners’ accommodation, the property could easily be converted back into a stunning family home packed with many original features and character, or alternatively offers potential for use as holiday accommodation.

The entrance hallway leads to a beautiful wide staircase, with mahogany banister and the feature chandelier. The drawing room has a quadruple large bay window before the main hallway leads to the Laurels property.

The owners’ accommodation benefits from a decent-sized living room, en-suite bedroom, dining room extension and small kitchen area. Additional rooms currently used as owners’ accommodation include two double bedrooms, a single bedroom and family bathroom.

The rest of the property is divided into sections, ‘Morningside’. ‘Treetops’, ‘Hillside’, ‘Bright Lights’ and ‘Seascape’. There is also a Coach House located to the side of the property, a Courtyard flat and a superb private walled garden, with the entire site extending to approximately half an acre.

The property needs to be viewed to appreciate the size of accommodation and potential on offer.

The property is on the market for £850,000 with Ridgeway Property Ltd. Contact 01803 525100 or visit www.ridgewater.co.uk for more information. The property would benefit from some updating and the price reflects the work required.
