Introducing an exceptional development opportunity on the English Riviera - the Meadfoot Bay Hotel. This stunning Victorian hotel/guest house, situated in the highly sought-after area of Meadfoot in Torquay, Devon, offers the perfect canvas for a remarkable redevelopment project. Boasting a prime location, frontage on two roads, tree-lined road leading to the water's edge. With its 15 luxurious letting suites/bedrooms, lounge/bar, library, dining room, well-equipped kitchens, and owner's 3-bedroom penthouse, the existing structure already provides a solid foundation for a redevelopment venture.

Currently there is a application for change of usage to residential apartment and all indicators are positive and a sale ‘subject to planning’ will be considered.

Imagine creating a bespoke residential development, capitalising on the Victorian charm and elegant architecture of the building. The project could result in a collection of premium residences that offer breath-taking water views and a truly luxurious lifestyle.

Meadfoot Bay Hotel is ideally located in the highly sought-after affluent residential area of Meadfoot in Torquay, along a tree-lined road leading down to the water’s edge. Only a short walk away is the picturesque Marina and Harbour of Torquay, and a level walk along the Esplanade provides stunning views over the bay towards Paignton and Brixham. The Riviera Conference Centre and train/bus stations are nearby. Torquay is ranked as the No. 1 staycation destination in the UK and is an all-year-round busy coastal resort. Conveniently located along the Jurassic Coast and only an easy drive to places such as Dartmoor National Park, Dartmouth, the Eden Project, and the Cathedral city of Exeter with its International airport and M5 motorway, linking all parts of the UK.
