Raffles is a stunning bespoke coastal residence set in over 1.7 acres of private grounds and offering over 6000 square feet of accommodation. It is situated in a commanding position overlooking Thatcher Rock and affords magnificent panoramic sea views from most rooms.
Raffles was architecturally designed and commissioned to integrate seamlessly within the grounds of this hillside location whilst simultaneously mimicking components of the style and flow of the renowned Raffles Hotel in Singapore. The house has bright, spacious public rooms and four en-suite bedrooms, all with individual characteristics and facing the bay.
The grounds surrounding Raffles are presented and maintained to a very high standard and include terraces, patio areas, walled flower and shrub gardens, and a lower-level garden bordered by woodland. A detached two-storey gazebo, currently used as a gym and greenhouse, would make an ideal home office.
Raffles is situated in a desirable and exclusive location in Torquay, tucked away off Thatcher Avenue and screened from neighbouring properties. Within a short walking distance of the house is the Southwest Coastal Path and Meadfoot Beach.
Torquay offers a vast choice of leisure pursuits including sailing, paddle-boarding, kayaking and open swimming amongst the most popular water sports, and a wide choice of scenic hiking/climbing locations found on the rugged moorlands of Dartmoor National Park.
The South Devon Highway bypass from Torquay provides direct access to the A380/M5. Exeter and Bristol Airports can be easily reached and provide an array of national and international flights. Torquay and Newton Abbot railway stations run regular services to major hubs and to London Paddington.
