The property

18 Abbey Sands is a contemporary second-floor apartment situated in an enviable position in Torquay, Devon.

Designed by world class architect, Kay Elliott and influenced by the Art Deco style of the British seaside, featuring stylish, open-plan living and unrivalled sea views, 18 Abbey Sands is ideally suited for two couples or a family of four looking for a coastal escape in Devon.

Take advantage of the secure allocated off-road parking offered before entering this opulent apartment building to discover this stunning abode.

Stepping inside, towel off your sandy toes in the stylish family bathroom and load the washing machine with your beach gear before following the hallway through to the open-plan living space, where sliding balcony doors bathe the sociable space with natural light.

Enjoy relaxing on the sofa in front of the television as the fresh, seaside air blissfully flows through the room, or venture outdoors and soak in the unrivalled views across the glistening waters of the coast as you toast a glass of fizz with your loved ones.

When hunger pangs set in, head to the well-stocked kitchen, where gleaming white cabinets conceal a bevy of conveniences, sure to inspire any budding cook to whip up a dinner for four to be enjoyed the adjacent dining table.

Alternatively enjoy the restaurants situated below the development with a choice of Bistrot Pierre, Las Iguanas and Visto Lounge.

When sleep calls, catch your rest in one of the two sumptuous super-king-size bedrooms, one offering a handy zip/link feature to provide flexible sleeping arrangements for families, friends, and couples alike.

Rise with a steaming cup of coffee on the balcony as the sun rises over the bay before getting ready to embark on another exciting day of adventure.

The Victorians dubbed Torquay the "English Riviera," and it's easy to see why; the picture-perfect marina, together with the pristine sands of Torr Abbey Sands and the intriguing exhibitions of local history at Torquay Museum are just a few of the must-see attractions in the historic town.

In contrast to the award-winning Babbacombe Model Village, which covers four acres of miniature scenery, the Torquay Golf Course or a 'two-foot' excursion along the South West Coast Path are both excellent alternatives for escaping the excitement.

Be sure to travel along the coast and visit Paignton, where you may enjoy the Victorian pier's fairground rides or cool off at Splashdown Quaywest, or head further inland and tour the medieval rooms and well-kept grounds of the National Trust's Compton Castle.

A stay at 18 Abbey Sands will provide you with priceless memories.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £250.
