Tor Manor – a gated courtyard crescent of 9 town houses, in the shadow of Torquay’s historic St Andrew’s church in the conservation area of Tormohun
A glorious gated courtyard development of Nine 3 & 4 bed town houses in one of Torquay’s most historic sites
Tor Manor is set in the Tormohun Conservation Area, on the site of the original manor house overlooking the church yard and gardens of one of Torquay’s oldest and historically significant churches, the medieval parish Church of Torre, now St Andrew’s Church.
The church and associated manor house, called the Court House, was the seat of the pre-monastic manor of Torre and was the foundation of one of Torquay’s earliest settlements. It was acquired by and was part of the historic Torre Abbey and kept by them until 1539.
Tor Manor is surrounded by a substantial stone wall, into which is built an ancient fountain. This fountain marks the site of the medieval wellhead attached to the kitchen of the original Court House. It was rebuilt in 1860 and is a monument to the original manor house and settlement that grew up around it.
The Tor Manor development is a modern high quality testimony to the original manor house. Elevated, Gated and secure, with sweeping views from over the Church yard and the Bay views from the elevated family terraces on the top floors.
Roofs are on and the finishing phase will be starting shortly for plots 1 – 6.
Plots 7,8 & 9 can now be started.

The former Spa View Hotel in the Warberries area of Torquay closed some years ago and fell in to serious disrepair. Eventually the hotel was demolished and planning consent gained to redevelop the site for residential use.
Nirvana Homes acquired the site in late 2014 and have completed discussions with the local planning authorities to redevelop the site to a block of 9 fabulous luxury apartments.
The site enjoys a lovely sunny South facing aspect and views across the tree topped valley leading down to the harbour, in one of Torquay’s nicest residential areas.
The development will be secure and gated. The apartments will have large sunny balconies and over 1000 sq, ft. of living space. There will be dedicated parking, visitor parking, private gardens and Spa Villa is in easy walking distant from the beautiful Torquay Harbour with all its’ cafes, bistros and restaurants.
