VENDOR INSIGHT "When searching for our new home, before purchasing Harbourne, we were seeking a solid, sizeable home that could meet the needs of our growing family. We have found that this house has admirably met our needs and we have spent nearly twenty very happy years here. Now we feel that the time is right for us to move on and let another family enjoy the property and appreciate the happiness that we have experienced during our time living here."

The property is conveniently located for good local schools, both primary & secondary, as well as being within a reasonable walk of the picturesque Cockington Valley, Torquay's beautiful seafront and harbourside as well as the town centre. A range of local shops and amenities are also found within a short saunter."
