THE GRAND LOUNGE
The grand lounge is an extravagant room with Original wooden flooring, grand coving and a large open fire place with two beautiful oversized sash windows overlooking the designed tiered garden and leading out to a bespoke balcony which goes across the back of the house and a walkway to the end of the top part of the garden. The lounge also has a beautiful chandelier and a large 3D TV with Sky package.
The den is a sumptuous room located on the lower ground with dark flooring – the den can be open to the rest of the lower ground or shut away by doors. There is a projector in this room. (This room can be made as a bedroom if required instead of a second lounge, as contains a sofa bed and has a bathroom right next to it).
Outside can be assessed on two levels either from the kitchen by two oversized folding doors to a sheltered south westerly facing garden (Number Nine gets the sun all day long). The garden is tiered into three zones. The lowest zone is at the same level as the kitchen and makes for great socializing space in the kitchen and the garden in the summer with the doors open. Even with the doors shut in winter it is a lovely view through the windows into the garden. This lowest zone overlooks the middle zone with the sunken hot tub area. Then on the top zone is a large seating area and table and chairs and a BBQ for Al Fresco dinning – in this zone you have elevated views of Torquay. This zone also joins to the pathway where you can go on the balcony across the back of the house and to the level above. You can access the garden from the grand lounge also onto this balcony. The garden is lit up beautifully and is a great extension of the house and creates a feeling of even more space.
There are three designated parking spaces at the front of the property (if parked carefully). In addition to this you can block yourself in making four spaces. There is additional parking on the one way street prior and after the property.
