Windmill Gardens, Preston, Paignton








This extended, large and spacious detached house occupies an end of cul-de-sac position in the popular Preston area of Paignton and enjoys some wonderful sea and coastal views across the bay to Berry Head and beyond. The town centre of Paignton is served by public transport and is approximately 2 miles distant and offers a fine and varied range of shopping facilities and amenities, beaches and harbour, railway and bus station. The property has been extensively extended to provide particularly spacious accommodation on two levels and is now in need of the work being finished off. Undoubtedly the property offers great potential and would provide an excellent project for a builder or competent DIY enthusiast.
The spacious accommodation includes main hallway plus inner hallway, sitting room and large lounge both having wonderful sea views, three bedrooms on the ground floor plus bathroom and study/w.c. On the lower ground floor there is a spacious open plan family/dining room which opens to a fitted kitchen and a utility room/w.c. A large inner hallway gives access to two further bedrooms and also on this level is a large bathroom/w.c. From the inner hallway there is a double glazed door to the annexe which is currently unfinished and comprises of three rooms plus open access to a extremely large conservatory/living room overlooking the rear garden.
Outside there is driveway parking plus preparation for a large sweeping driveway around the side of the property to the rear where there is space to build a garage subject to necessary consent. There is a good sized rear garden, which is split level, with a paved sun terrace and additional area suitable to create lawn. There is also a sun terrace on the ground floor accessed from the bedroom plus an additional area suitable to create a terrace, which is accessed from the lounge and main bedroom. An internal inspection of this gas centrally heated and uPVC double glazed property is highly recommended to fully appreciate both the size of the accommodation (the property is deceptive from an external appearance) and the potential on offer.
