Victorian splendour in the heart of Torquay

Torbay Weekly

Welcome to Lisburne House, a truly stunning home in Torquay, this archetypal Victorian residence, built in the era when Torquay was favoured by the upper classes as a retreat for fresh air, mild climate and clear bathing waters, which remains the case today.  
The house has been lovingly restored over recent years by our client at considerable expense and great attention to detail.  
Lisburne House provides commodious living space with exceptional versatility to accommodate home working, extended family or potential to generate a healthy income from letting of the beautiful garden level apartment, currently connected to the main residence yet easily separated.
The extensive renovation project extended beyond the main home and auxiliary accommodation into the garden enjoys expansive terracing where wide steps lead to the lawn and further terrace directly outside the lower apartment, proving areas for relaxation or entertainment spaces whether seeking sun or shade throughout the day.
Lisburne House stands within easy reach of the picturesque Meadfoot Beach, a haven for water sports, and Ilsham Green with wooded Ilsham Valley leading to Wellswood with its village ambience, renowned Primary School and well supported St Matthias Church.  
Owners’ Insight
"When we first walked into Lisburne House, we immediately saw past the renovation needed and visualised the home it could be for our family. Never fazed by a daunting project to many, we sourced an exceptional team of local professionals to reinstate the house back to former glory yet with all the modern conveniences expected of a fine home.  
“High on our priority list was space for home working and the option to accommodate extended family or guests, with the lower apartment a major attribute. The apartment would equally suit a perfect holiday let or long-term tenancy.  
“It was not just the potential of the house which attracted us, it was the lifestyle. We can be on Meadfoot Beach or Torquay's Harbour and Yacht Marina within a matter of minutes. A selection of excellent restaurants are within comfortable walking distance."
The property is on the market for £1.6m. For more information, please contact John Lake on 01803 328899 or email
