Introduction to Rosa Pines, a truly stunning Victorian Residence's on the South Devon coast, arranged as a Gracious owners apartment and nine self contained flats.
One of the early Villa's to be constructed on the prestigious Warberries hillside and occupying one of the highest positions, Rosa Pines is archetypal of its era when Torquay was favoured by the upper classes as a retreat for fresh air, mild climate and clear bathing waters, with these attributes remaining the case today. The house has been a loved home for our client and their family circa thirty years, affording exceptional versatility, currently generating strong rental income from letting eight of the self contained flats.

The gardens are arranged to retain private relaxation and entertainment space for the owner, without compromising the beautiful recreational space for all the tenants.
