Sold at Auction


46 Torquay Road, Kingskerswell, Newton Abbot.

Rendells auction of 46 Torquay Road, Kingskerswell held at The Jolly Farmer, Newton Abbot on 4th September attracted a good attendance.

A property of this type in this location rarely comes to the market. The house sits in a hugely convenient spot close to the centre of Kingskerswell village and its facilities, including a frequent bus service to both Newton Abbot and Torquay, each of which are around three miles away. The Willows retail park is just a few minutes’ drive, and there is easy access to the recently upgraded A380 for an easy commute to Exeter, Torbay or further afield.


In need of modernisation and improvement, the house retains some of its original features and has masses of potential. With its large rear garden, there is also plenty of scope to extend, subject to the relevant consents, to create a lovely spacious family home.


To the front of the house is a large driveway providing ample parking and access to the attached garage, a lawned garden and a gate to the side leading to the rear garden.


From the veranda and through the front door is an entrance hall with stairs and doors to the kitchen and dining room. The lounge, with a bay window, is at the front of the property. Through an archway is the dining room with glazed French doors leading into the conservatory.


The kitchen is fitted with a range of oak fronted cabinets, oven, extractor and hob, and there is space for appliances. A door in the rear hall leads to the back garden, and beyond the rear hall is a WC.

Upstairs are the three bedrooms, two of which are doubles, and a shower room fitted with a white suite and corner shower cubicle.


The back garden is a particular feature of the property. There is a patio area abutting the house, which leads to a long strip of lawn with a variety of mature shrubs, bushes and some small trees, and a timber workshop.


Charles Morgan,  at Rendells, said: “This house is in such a fantastic, popular and convenient location, there is a very slow turnover of homes in the road as people tend to stay for a long time. The house is in need of modernisation – there are night storage heaters, some of the windows are double glazed, and it hasn’t been decorated for a while, but it has so many wonderful features that, given a bit of TLC, it will make a really lovely family home.”


Biding was brisk with a number of potential buyers keen to secure the property.

The gavel finally fell at a price of £220, 000.00 with a local couple being the successful purchaser.
