Property of the Week in Torbay


Stunning villa has 21 bedrooms

Our first Property of the Week for 2024 is a glorious 21-bedroom detached villa in Haldon Road, Torquay.
This magnificent property is on the market for £2.3m with Absolute Sales and Lettings.
Originally named Charante, Villa Sylvania was completed around 1865 and was owned by a consortium which included Lord Hesketh, Lord Haldon and The Whidbornes, who have significant historical relevance locally. The current owners have resided in the property for over 20 years and have lovingly restored and maintained the villa which is reflected in the condition of the property throughout.
Currently, Villa Sylvania (name meaning forest) enjoys a prominent position on one of Torquay’s sheltered hillsides and enjoys a southerly position from the beautifully landscaped grounds.
The main house was built in an Italianate style, which is reflected in the ornate pillars and the paving to the front courtyard. The current owners have lovingly restored the main part of the property to its former glory and it retains a wealth of period features.
The quality of the house is exceptional and evident as soon as you enter the welcoming reception hall with its ornate plasterwork and carved door lintels. The features continue throughout the three main reception rooms which all enjoy sea and garden views through large windows and are superbly positioned for entertaining. There are arched doorways between the dining room, sitting room and drawing room, which has a large bay window and fireplace. The reception hallway is equally impressive and grandiose with its sweeping staircase illuminated by a large stained glass window.
Another feature of the property is the Egyptian room, with its spectacular ceiling, wall murals and fireplace. The high quality and stylish kitchen has a wide range style cooker, concealed appliances, polished granite work surfaces, tiled floors and French windows overlooking the charming courtyard with a fountain and coloured paving.
At the top of the sweeping staircase, the master bedroom suite enjoys possibly the best views from the property from a large bay window and has the benefit of a large en-suite bathroom with a spacious air bath, shower cubicle, twin wash basins and a large walk in dressing room with fitted wardrobes.
