The House - Seaview our 1970s detached family house is situated in a superb commanding elevated position in Paignton village at the heart of the English Riviera with stunning panoramic sea and coastal views across Torbay. The area is renowned for its wonderfully mild climate and is one of the sunniest places in the UK enjoying much better weather throughout the whole year. We have owned Seaview for over 25 years and it has recently been lovingly completely renovated to a high standard reflecting the local nautical theme and providing all the comforts of modern living including full central heating, complete double glazing, front porch, rear conservatory, wood laminate & ceramic flooring, new kitchen and so much more.
The Welcome - A real Devon welcome awaits guests on arrival - Tea, coffee, milk and everything for a traditional Devon Cream Tea.
What to Watch - From the Lounge and Bedrooms (The master Bedroom is best) delight in the sun making beautiful sparkling kaleidoscope colour changes on the sea whilst the sailing boats, ferries, motor boats and jet skis etc criss-cross the bay. After sunset the various coloured lights on the boats traversing the bay also make a further delightful spectacle which is often enhanced by the moon reflecting in the sea. Rainbows over the sea are spectacular and we have had the pleasure of seeing beautiful double rainbows with both ends appearing to dive into the sea, we never tire of seeing these ever changing sea views and cannot imagine you will ever tire either.
The view of Paignton pier far below brings to mind the hustle, bustle and noise of the seafront but Seaview's elevated position at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac enables you to enjoy a quiet, peaceful and restful environment. Seaview looks almost directly east which often produces amazing sunrises across the sea in the bay for you to marvel at and in the afternoon you can enjoy sunbathing on the loungers in the enclosed back garden, dine alfresco on the garden furniture whilst watching dramatic sunsets over the hills.
