30,32 and 34 The Terrace are three handsome
Grade II Listed houses, located in one of the most sought-after settings in Torquay, overlooking the harbour and with the town centre on their doorstep. The houses, dating from the early 1800s, have been combined and until recently were used as offices for a law firm.
The houses retain many of their original details,
with the exteriors showcasing symmetry, stone porches with columns, tall sash windows and intricately designed, cast-iron first-floor balustrading. Internally, the properties run together, comprising more than 10,000 square
feet of floor space across three levels with rooms featuring high-ceilings, ornate cornicing, fireplaces and decorative alcoves, along with two grand staircases with curved oak handrails.
The three properties have planning permission to be converted into 12 residential apartments under planning reference P/2020/0999. The properties also have listed building consent under reference P/2020/1000. The planning permission allows for the three buildings to be converted into 12 residential apartments. With the current planning, each building is divided into four apartments and the majority have private outside space. Overall there are 10 x Two-bedroom, 1 x Three-bedroom, 1 x One-bedroom. This is an exciting opportunity
to create unique and characterful homes in an
attractive seaside setting.
The property is set in a highly desirable position in the heart of Torquay, overlooking the harbour. The setting is picturesque and highly convenient with the town centre right on its doorstep. Torquay offers an excellent choice of shopping, supermarkets, leisure facilities and local amenities, including schools such as Stokeinteignhead School, and Torquay Girls and Boys’ Grammar Schools can be found in the town. Torquay’s mainline station provides direct services to Exeter, with some direct trains to London Paddington, and others connecting at Newton Abbot. Leisure activities include sailing and a variety of other water sports, walking, cycling along the South West Coastal Path, which passes close by the property, and golf at Torquay Golf Course, just three miles away.
The three properties front the pedestrianized, paved portion of The Terrace with immediate access on foot to all the amenities on offer in the town. On a site that is set on sloping ground, to the rear, there are small areas of courtyard, with steps and high wall boundaries. There are also three allocated parking spaces at the front of number 34.
