Situated in the highly regarded area of Wellswood and set in an elevated position, this spacious detached family home provides generous accommodation throughout and character features typical of its era. The property accommodation briefly comprises three reception rooms, large kitchen/diner, utility room, family bathroom and four sizeable bedrooms which the master is complimented by an en-suite shower room. The property is set within a good size plot garden with additional paved terrace providing a private seating area, ideal for Al fresco dining. The property also benefits from plenty of off road parking and is screened from the road offering a high degree of privacy and seclusion yet easily accessible to a wide range of amenities.


Wellswood village is just a short distance away with a parade of boutique shops, restaurants and a very welcoming public house. There are more comprehensive facilities a few miles distance at Torquay's Harbourside and Town Centre providing a variety of stores, waterside restaurants, coffee shops, theatre and mooring facilities to name but a few. The property is also very close to Ansteys Cove Beach with wonderful coastal walks accessed just over the road in Ansteys Cove Road.


Back in the 1920's Torquay was considered a very grand place to live, consequently there are some beautiful homes built in those times that are just a cut above their modern counterpart. Arcadian heights, just as the historic name suggests, sits beautifully within its lush grounds offering a high level of privacy and seclusion.

Thirty four steps up from roadside level brings you past a motor courtyard into a gorgeous, and level, east facing sun terrace. Entrance into this classic double fronted home is via a reception hallway that offers access to all of the major ground floor accommodation, including storage and a cloakroom. A generous sized lounge runs the full depth of the home with a French door set offering access to the garden. A focal point is the open fire place set within a marble surround. Opposite the lounge is a formal dining room that accommodates a significant sized dining suite. A substantial kitchen family area is nicely centered between those two ground floor reception rooms. That very social kitchen space features an extensive range of painted Shaker style units with butcher block oak work surfaces. There also an integrated full size dishwasher and a range style double oven and grill set, topped by a stainless steel extractor hood. Storage is well catered for with a convenient boot room and utility room, an adjacent study (currently utilised as a wine storage area) offers further decorated space for a young family.

Upstairs sees a spectacular master suite that is full of light and features a dedicated en-suite shower room and a walk-in dressing room. This space offers enough room for a full compliment of bedroom furniture including an intimate seating area. There are three further double bedrooms all with vanity units within, some with built in wardrobes. A house bathroom and separate cloakroom completes this floor.

This home wants for nothing, it's full of character with all modern conveniences that include uPVC double glazing throughout with gas fire central heating. It's also in very good decorative order and is available for the first time for nearly 23-years.


The frontage of the property is at roadside level with an electric garage door offering access into the motor courtyard, replete with electric charging point. A separate pedestrian gate offers a stairway past that courtyard area and up into the very generous sun terrace area in front of the home. There is pedestrian access on each side of the property bringing you around to an attractive decked area, then onwards into a park-like garden that is significantly larger than you would expect. This garden is fully enclosed with a variety of mature trees, some bearing fruit and is an absolute delight with it's sloping features. Two brick built cupboards offer good outside storage solutions.
