Situated in an elevated position with superb panoramic views over the Bay, Braganza is a substantial Grade II Listed Georgian Villa set within large, secluded grounds. The handsome property was built in 1823 for Sir Charles Dashwood, a respected Admiral of his time and more recently recognised by the Torbay Civic Society who awarded the Villa a historic blue plaque in recognition of the Building’s Heritage.
The sizable Villa offers beautifully restored and renovated accommodation, decorated and presented in such a way as to enhance its stunning characteristics, and lovingly maintained to an exceptional standard by the current owners. The property retains many of the original features and boasts over 7000 square feet of accommodation which is currently apportioned to provide 4 residences, offering both the opportunity for home and income or to be used as a magnificent family residence.
Outside, the gardens and grounds surrounding the property are just as exceptional, enjoying seclusion with a southerly, sunny aspect and stunning views to the Bay. Superbly maintained and landscaped with great attention and thought to planting and shrubs, there are sun terraces, including a decked terrace and hot tub, decked 2-level veranda with second hot tub and a vast main lawn with central pond. There is a large parking forecourt with electric charging point and triple garage.
Tucked away within The Warberries Conservation area on the outskirts of town, the property affords an enviable location with easy access to the Harbourside, Restaurants, Marina with Watersport facilities and shops which are a 5-minute walk away. The popular shops and amenities situated at nearby Wellswood are a short drive away, with the large green open space of Ilsham Park and Lincombe Woods which lead down to Meadfoot Beach and access to the scenic South West Coastal Path.
