Between the Torquay Road and Palace Avenue Gardens, in a relatively quiet backwater, yet just a short walk from the Town Centre and all amenities, this property was built in the mid 1800s by the famous Engineer, Isambard Kingdom Brunel, for the South Devon Railway Company to house its principal officers and until recently has been used as a Surgery. 

Newly refurbished to a high standard with the benefit of Gas Fired Central Heating, it forms a good sized family home, also being suitable for shared occupation, and must be viewed to appreciate the space offered.
