28 Vicarage Road is a fabulous three storey Victorian property which retains many of its original features and a flexible layout. Located in the favoured area of Upper Chelston close to the Cockington Estate the area has a wonderful village feel and community and yet it is just moments from the sea front and benefits from the convenience of local shops a short stroll away.
Entered via a large tiled porch providing plenty of room for coats and boots, there is a striking original half glazed inner front door with glazed panels to either side, which allows the large hallway into which it leads to be flooded with light. There are very generous ceiling heights throughout the property, which exude a feeling of grandeur, as well as plentiful storage cupboards.
To the front of the house is a light and bright sitting room with picture windows overlooking the green, this cosy room has an original fireplace with a stunning tiled surround. Further down the hall is a second reception room currently used as a dining room with a bay window to the side of the house, a lovely period fireplace with tiled surround and with all the original features including a lovely ceiling rose, coving, dado and picture rail.
There is a downstairs shower room with WC and various useful cupboards before entering the wonderful large kitchen/dining room. This striking room is light and bright and very spacious. It is fully fitted with granite worktops, a range, fitted fridge/freezer and dishwasher. A large central island with granite top is a stunning feature and is a lovely focal point. Off the kitchen is a rear boiler/utlity cupboard and a door giving access to the rear garden and storage area which could be utilized as a further utility room.
The first floor is reached via a sweeping staircase to a spacious landing, and comprises the main bedroom which overlooks the green and has a side balcony with lovely views, and two/three further double bedrooms all with Victorian fireplaces, a family bathroom and a separate WC.
The house is currently in multi-generational use so the bedroom overlooking the rear garden is currently used as a sitting room with its own fully fitted kitchen, with oven and 4 ring hob, dishwasher and plumbing for washing machine and dryer and guest WC adjoining. Stairs from the living area lead up to the second floor where there is a bedroom, study and shower room. Further steps up lead to an attic room which could be transformed to create a wonderful space for an older teenager, or used as a home office or further relaxation space.
At the front of the property is a small lawned area overlooking the green. There is a path up to the house which leads up to the main garden at the rear which benefits from the most fabulous views from the large tiered decking area, and there is also a good sized lawned area and a large shed with the possibility of conversion to a home office.
Vicarage Road is in a quiet residential street overlooking the lovely green behind St Matthews Church. The shops at Chelston are just a short stroll away with post office, cafe, restaurants and a Coop food store. Close by are the renowned Torquay Boys and Girls Grammar Schools. The beautiful coast line and beaches of Torbay are just down the road with Corbyn Beach just over mile away.
