The current Vendors have accomplished an extensive refurbishment programme with art deco styling and superior décor in classic, neutral tones which compliments the extensive space and light within whilst creating a wholly relaxed vibe. Also included in these works, was the installation of 36 solar panels on the roof, providing upto 12kw of electrical power and 10 kilowatt hours of battery capacity, resulting in an extremely energy efficient home.

Outside, there is plentiful off-road parking for cars along with a double Garage, and the gardens are well presented with ample space for relaxation and leisure, backing onto the trees at Whidborne Copse.
The views enjoyed from the property are one of a kind, with an impressive panorama over the woodland of Ilsham Valley to the sea and Meadfoot Beach and also taking in the bays of both Torbay and Lyme Bay on the Jurassic coast.
Mandalay is situated in Whidborne Avenue, a desirable and prestigious residential address in Torquay, minutes away from the coast and Thatcher Point, with easy access to the scenic Southwest Coastal Path.
There is a vast choice of year-round activities to enjoy in and around the area including sailing, kayaking and open swimming amongst the most popular water sports, hiking and climbing on the rugged moorlands of Dartmoor National Park, several large Leisure Centres, and a host of both indoor and outdoor sports clubs.
