Location, location, location is otter bliss
Published: 2nd Jul 2013A new seaside pad with a million pound price tag has been snapped up - by a family of otters.
The prime site at Living Coasts, Torquay’s coastal zoo and aquarium, overlooks Beacon Cove and Tor Bay.
Bradley’s Estate Agents Area Manager Darren Hole commented: “This is a prime location with stunning panoramic views, convenient for the harbour and for town centre shops. The grounds are perfect for al fresco dining - and there’s lots of local wildlife!”
The single-storey accommodation includes a bedroom and lounge area with a porch. The grounds feature two swimming pools, lawns, rock garden and stream. The timber-framed, pitched roof structure, built by local craftsmen, is well-insulated and eco-friendly, with excellent security.
Darren added: “It’s a prime site on the English Riviera – it has to be worth a million pounds plus!”
The property has just been taken on by four young Asian short-clawed otters that have come from Living Coasts’ sister zoo, Newquay Zoo in Cornwall.
“In their keepers they even have their very own liveried staff at their beck - and call and all the fish they can eat!”
