Sovereign House is enviably positioned near Torquay's deep water marina, bustling town centre, and the array of amenities, shops, and eateries it offers. Notably, the renowned Princess Theatre is within easy reach, enhancing cultural appeal. As a result of the recently opened Hilton Hotel, the area is now of even increased interest to both locals and tourists alike.

Constructed in 1811, Sovereign House is a historical gem, celebrated for its elegant architecture. Last year, the entire building was decorated on the outside. Access to this exquisite maisonette is through a private gated entrance on Montpellier Road. A private parking space is conveniently located outside the property, as well as a private courtyard. Access to the property can also be made through the front entrance on The Terrace, where the property's post box is located. The main building contains secure storage rooms for each apartment.

Its interior layout is thoughtfully planned, with a living room and kitchen on the ground floor. It also has two comfortable bedrooms and a spacious and contemporary bathroom on the lower floor. Both the kitchen and bathroom are fitted to a high standard, offering an opportunity for new owners to personalise. This maisonette is perfectly suited to those seeking a harbour lifestyle or a secure, delightful second home in the heart of the English Riviera.
