A heavenly escape in Hesketh Crescent!
Boasting double aspect views of Thatcher's Rock to the east and the beautiful sands of Brixham Bay and Meadfoot Beach to the south, this splendid sea view home offers a sumptuous holiday escape in all seasons.
Located within the iconic setting of Hesketh Crescent, this ground floor end-of-terrace apartment offers groups of 4 the chance to soak up a bygone ambience of sumptuous home comfort and regency splendour. Two shallow steps feature to the entrance of the property and inside the grade II listed retreat provides lavish accommodation across one level floor.
Centrally heated throughout, the coastal retreat provides the perfect excuse for a year-round escape.
Benefiting from the elegance of retained character features and period detail, the 23' x 17' drawing room offers an uplifting room in which to dine and entertain. The tasteful neutral decor is complemented by a plush sofa suite and antique pieces to further enhance the period splendour of the room. Four large picture windows invite the seaside in, with far reaching views to leave guests enthralled and inspired. Accompanying the regal-style sitting area is a 32'' digital TV with VCR and DVD player, for guest's entertainment. A CD player also allows guests the chance to kick off their shoes and feel at home during their stay.
An elegant oval dining table with four chairs also features to the living area and is conveniently accompanied by an adjoining separate kitchen. Fitted with quality work tops and equipped with all the must-have appliances, the modern classic-style kitchen ensures guests have everything to hand throughout their stay. For a truly carefree experience, the nearby Osborne Hotel also allows guests to sample two tempting restaurants on their doorstep.
Leading on from the sumptuous home comfort of the living area, two equally-stylish bedrooms await. The elegant master bedroom offers splendid views of the sea from its bay window; for a romantic touch to the bright and airy ambience of the room. Furnished with a luxurious king size 'Vi Spring' mattress & bed, the master suite is perfect for savouring a holiday slumber. The room is further complemented by bedside cabinets with reading lights, a mahogany wardrobe and a chest of drawers. A modern fitted en-suite shower room with washbasin, WC and shaver point allows an added feel of privacy for guests staying here.
The second bedroom is beautifully finished in an inviting period style. Ideal for accommodating additional guests, the set of twin beds offers a versatile arrangement to suit families and friends. The room is tastefully furnished with a wardrobe, chest of drawers and a set of bedside cabinets with reading lamp. A shared modern bathroom with bath tub, overhead shower, wash basin, WC, mirror and shaver point provides a convenient accompaniment to the second bedroom.
To the hallway cupboard, guests will find a washing machine and tumble dryer. All bed linen and towels are provided, alongside a travel baby cot and high chair if needed.
From the period splendour of the sweeping crescent, guests can easily reach the nearby parking and the lovely Blue flag sands of Meadfoot Beach. The historical setting of Hesketh Cresecent is further complemented by a host of modern day activities to enjoy, within the inclusive appeal of the neighbouring Hesketh Health Club. For a small weekly fee of £35 for a family of 4, guests can enjoy the health club's indoor swimming pool, sauna and fitness centre. Tennis can also be enjoyed at an hourly rate.

A lovely apartment. We were particularly impressed with the range and quality of general household supplies which made it feel like being at home. (It's the little things that are often irritatingly missing/limited at holiday houses like washing up liquid, lots of bin liners, lots of toilet roll, cooking oil, salt, etc). It was perfect as we did not have to keep bringing these things back and forth. Clean and tidy and quiet at night. Definitely recommend it. The owners obviously take great care of it and make an effort to get it right. Mr Mark Dixon (HolidayLettings) - 9th July 2018
Wonderful stay in a beautiful apartment! Excellent service from Discovery Holiday Homes from start to finish.Craig, Ashby - 20th June 2017
Lovely apartment in an excellent location!Really enjoyed our stay and a surprise bonus was the restaurant in the complex which offered gourmet food at a very affordable price!Mr Ramshaw - South Perth, Australia - 4th May 2017
We have just spent 5 weeks in this wonderful apartment. The lounge is particularly nice with four windows overlooking the sea from two aspects. The beds are very comfortable and we consider the apartment 'home from home'. This was our second visit and we have already booked for 2017, which surely speaks volumes. We live in Malta and enjoy this part of Torquay very much indeed, having spent holidays in and around the town over the last half a century. We know the area very well and Hesketh Crescent is a jewel in the crown.Tony & Anne Bird, Malta - 1st September 2016
