This is a rare opportunity to acquire a Superb Detached 13 Bedroom (13 En-Suite) property being situated in a desirable location with an attached six-bedroom house. The attached house which was built in the 1980’s which can offer a good investment property offering separate access and excellent rental potential. It also benefits from a garage and additional parking. Due to the size and flexibility of the main property it may also suit dual or multi-family occupation, along with other options such as fostering or a variety of other business ventures. There is also huge potential for the property to be converted into luxury apartments, subject to the necessary planning permissions and regulations being in place. The property itself was built in the Victorian era and still retains some of the original period features. There are high ceilings, bay windows, Mosaic flooring and a stunning feature staircase. The accommodation is arranged over 3 floors with a range of mezzanines and family accommodation suites. The current vendors have continued to maintain and improve the property, including a new retaining wall and re-wiring of the top two floors (carried out approximately six years ago). The property itself offers three reception rooms, a bar, commercial kitchen, laundry and storage room and 13 en-suite bedrooms.

The property is set in an elevated position with a private driveway leading to an extensive off road parking area for up to ten vehicles. Access can also be gained via Torrs Walk Avenue. There is also a pathway that runs from the entrance level down to Torrs Park Road and the vendors have recently invested in a new retaining wall. There are mature trees and borders that add a great deal of privacy and seclusion to the property. Just off the Torrs Walk Avenue is a pedestrian pathway leading through Torrs Nature Reserve and the coast beyond.
