  • An 'ICONIC' building of ages past which has featured in 'historic films'. From the mansion lawns the building is impressive, with ornate flower gardens adding 'romance' to the once, 'SINGER' family home. (of the world famous sewing machine company). Purchased by the local council to use as offices and for 'marriage/function events'. (for the price of £45,000). An opportunity to use the building as a public library was missed, with millions being spent on a new library at Paignton. The 'mansion' now stands empty, its 'grandly painted' interior ceilings over the marble staircases captivated by only the silence with in. With imaginative flare and professional promotional skills who knows what 'revenue' this 'elegantly romantic iconic mansion', could have generated, whilst being a 'centre piece' of RIVIERA HISTORY......
  • A historic building with big gardens that is open to the public.
  • Great views in the gardens.
