Art Deco delight

Middle Warberry Court is a spectacular Victorian villa with magnificent sea views over Torbay, in a sought after part of town, located ten minutes’ walk from the harbour and town centre and only a mile from the yacht marina.

This unique property is superbly presented with an abundance of character features and offers magnificent sea views across the bay from each room in the house and garden. This exceptional home combines Victorian style with modern day living and was acquired by the current owners in 1989 who, with a meticulous eye and attention to detail, lovingly renovated the house to the highest of possible standards, from cellar to roof. Works to the stucco and Adam style reliefs were restored by highly skilled local or London based craftsmen. 

In line with many of Torquay’s signature villas, construction would have taken place during the mid 19th century and the property, once one of Torquay’s most imposing homes, is now separated into the main house set in its own gardens, with the coach house and servants quarters to the rear in separate ownership. 

The grounds are a real delight with many points of interest, including a 120 foot York stone terrace with sea views. The house is regularly maintained on a continuing programme to ensure the property retains its pristine order and style.

Prunella Martin MA, Director said: “This is a truly wonderful property having outstanding sea views with an abundance of original features including an original Art Deco bathroom!  There is no chain and it is a fantastic opportunity for someone to purchase a beautiful period home.”

Middle Warberry Court is offered to the market with a guide price of £1,400,000. For further information please contact the Prime Waterfront & Country House department (01548 855593) of Marchand Petit Estate Agents or the Totnes office on 01803 847979.
