Shiphay is situated in Torquay's English Riviera with the property being tucked away on a private no-through road close to both highly regarded primary and secondary schools as well as the local hospital. Nearby is the Willows Wren Retail Park, which offers retailers such as Sainsbury's, Boots, Next, and Marks & Spencer. Located a few miles away, Torquay's town centre and harborside offer many restaurants, bars, a vibrant marina, and shopping pavilions. The property is conveniently located near major transportation links and is easily accessible from the South Devon Highway. The highway provides access to Paignton, Newton Abbot, Brixham, and Exeter, which can be reached by car in approximately thirty minutes. The development of a new rail station at Edginswell on the rail line between Torquay and Exeter is the result of input from the local community, business, and the rail industry which will provide an additional transportation link.
An attractive gate provides access to the main entrance. This leads to a beautifully landscaped front garden with decorative paving slabs set amongst loose stone chippings surrounded by mature trees and shrubs with a central seating area. From the paved steps leading up to the main entrance, there is a spacious, light and welcoming entrance hall. Located on the half landing, the entrance hall has a full height ceiling and has access to a conveniently situated W/C. It also has access to stairs connecting the ground floor and the first floor. The W/C consists of a wall-mounted wash basin and a concealed cistern toilet unit with storage and shelving. Additionally, the W/C is equipped with a wall-mounted heated towel rail and fully tiled walls.
On the ground floor, you are greeted by an open-plan reception area with substantial storage under the stairs. In addition to providing access to the sitting room and third bedroom, the open-plan reception hall is flanked by the kitchen and dining area. Aside from the garage, the ground floor is laid with high-quality Karndean flooring.
High gloss wall, base, and drawer units with plinth lighting and worktops are featured in the kitchen. Several high quality integrated appliances can be found in the kitchen, including a Neff double oven, a Neff gas hob and extractor, a dishwasher, and a fridge/freezer. The kitchen is equipped with highly durable Karndean flooring.
Featuring a vaulted ceiling and a view of the galleried landing, the dining area is beautifully designed with an abundance of natural light. The dining area provides access to the timber decked patio via double glazed French doors. Karndean flooring has been installed in the dining area.
A cased opening from the reception hall leads to the main sitting room, which has beautiful views of the rear garden and double glazed bi-fold doors leading to the timber decked patio. In the sitting room, a wall-mounted log effect gas fireplace creates a cosy atmosphere during the winter months. The sitting room has been fitted with Karndean flooring.

There is also a three-piece en-suite in the master bedroom that includes a vanity unit with a wash basin on top, a concealed cistern toilet and a shower cubicle.
A three-piece bathroom is also provided on the first floor and consists of an L-shaped bath tub with a shower over, a wall-mounted wash basin and a concealed cistern toilet.
The first floor is completed by bedroom two, which is a double bedroom set over two levels. An elevated level provides storage underneath the elevation and is currently used as a study.
The property features both a front and rear garden, with the front garden serving as the main entrance. The front garden is connected to the side garden via a loose stone path.
