About this listing
Crabbs Park House (originally one very large house and now a semi detached property) is a typical 17th Century Georgian Farm House. It is located on an elevated position overlooking Goodrington Church/Waterside and the sea vistas beyond.
Crabbs Park was the original farmhouse once Hunts Cider then later Whiteways Winery.
This is a very spacious, cosy and well-loved home for us, which initially we are renting out over the summer. Apart from removing a few personal items, the house is fully equipped with for example Nespresso, Juicer and some cooking ingredients (spices etc) that you can freely use, we just ask that you look after our home while it is yours.
We have recently updated the kitchen, bathrooms and very large original beamed top (2nd floor) bedroom introducing a new en suite shower, toilet and sink.
The first floor bedrooms (super king and a double) both have sea views.
The lounge has a multi-fuel burner, with a ceiling with the original acanthus and circular rose pattern mouldings and a chandelier. We have stayed in a lot of holiday homes where the lounge seating is not comfortable, but in Crabbs Park House you can relax in either the 3 or 2 seater leather sofas or the attention seeking rocking chair.
To the rear of the lounge is the dining table, which can comfortably sit 6/7.
The lounge and each bedroom have TVs, the lounge (48’’) and top room are smart with Netfix and also DVD players in case you want to watch anything from our library. Free wifi
Hope for good weather and sit out on the front lawn which gets the last of the evening sun behind and look out into the bay and watch the cargo boats, sailing ships and ferries cruise by. Rear garden has a fairly secluded patio (sun trap) and we leave our BBQ for your use.
Next door has a confused cockerel so expect the odd wake up call in the afternoon and some chickens usually make an appearance around the front of the house during the day, although mostly behaving and staying next door.
The house is situated in a very quiet cul-de-sac with main bus links at the end of the road across the whole of Torbay or easy access by car to the beaches and all of the other many tourist attractions to suite all tastes.
As keen walkers (and cyclists) we can walk from the house on a couple of beautiful – predominantly - off road paths that lead down to the coast path/beaches (20 minutes) where you can turn right to Brixham (2 hours) and Dartmouth (6 hours!!) or left to Paignton (30 minutes), Torquay (1.5 Hours) and Teignmouth.
