Torquay, Devon

£775,000 Freehold
The 25 Boutique Bed & Breakfast25 Avenue RoadTorquayDevonTQ2 5LBView Map

A luxurious detached Victorian boutique 6-bedroom guest house, where nothing has been left to chance. Trading similarly to businesses three times the size, but with less work and expense, resulting in high profits due to quality, reputation, and repeat custom. This beautiful property boasts a welcoming large entrance lobby, a guest lounge, an exquisite dining room, an office, plenty of storage rooms, private outdoor garden space, and an in-and-out drive with a large car park for all guests. This turn-key business also provides the owners with a two-bedroom apartment, two bathrooms, lounge and dining room space with a highly private garden and workshop, all accessible independently or via the business.

The 25 is located upon entering Torquay and is ideally situated along a desirable tree-lined road and only minutes’ walk to the town centre, harbour & beach. Perfectly situated for the bus and mainline railway station. It also benefits from high passing tourist trade. The main beach, harbour and local restaurants are just a short level walk away through the pleasant gardens of Torre Abbey. Torquay is probably the most popular seaside holiday destination in the UK at present and has excellent road links to the M5 motorway connecting all parts of the UK. Nearby, there is an International airport offering flights to European and worldwide destinations, not forgetting Dartmoor National Park, Dartmouth, and the Cathedral city of Exeter with its world-renowned University. Within a reasonable drive are also places such as the Eden Project and Cornwall.

The business has been awarded 10/10 on Booking.com and is ranked among the top in the UK on TripAdvisor. The Guest House has received many accolades over the years and benefits from great repeat custom and occupancy, providing the owners with an impressive income and subsequent net profit, comparable to a guest house three times its size. The whole property has been recently renovated to a very high standard throughout. The refit of these premises has been cleverly devised to minimise maintenance/costs and is beautifully presented throughout. The owners travel extensively abroad in both the summer and winter periods because of the impressive income and deliberately trade only 7/8 months per year, allowing for an enviable lifestyle. We, the agents, feel the trading accounts could be easily increased by trading for longer due to high demand all year round. Actual trading accounts will be made available following a successful formal viewing.
