A Grade-II listed home, on the market for £1.5m, looks just like a medieval castle with views over Torquay and the ocean.
The home has four bedrooms, four bathrooms as well as a sculpted garden and an orangery on the half acre plot.
Lincombe Keep also boasts a fully electric Portcullis which leads visitors to a split level reception hallway and impressive roof lantern.
The house has been spotted on property portal Rightmove where house buyers can look through all 51 pictures from behind closed doors.
Built in 1992 in the medieval style, it has won awards for its individual look and was designed by John Pritchard Architects.
The grounds were originally designed by Fred Harrild who was based in Totnes and was believed to be a former pupil of Sir Edwin Lutyens.
The site was formerly attached to a property in Oxlea Road called 'Castle Tor' and was originally designed for a wealthy son of a bookmaker based in Leeds called Horace Pickersgill.
He had moved to Torquay on the advice of his doctor with the proviso that he must on no account spend his summers there as it was far too hot.
Now Lincombe Keep has a double garage, internal lift, three ensuite bathrooms and a master bedroom that comes complete with a large dressing room.
Uninterrupted sea views over the surrounding area towards Berry Head can be seen from a private sun terrace.
Rightmove’s property expert Miles Shipside said: " This astounding property really is fit for a king and I can’t quite believe that it’s younger than I am!
"Rightmove is home to such a wide variety of properties, from castle-inspired homes like this one to modern, city penthouses and it’s always a pleasure to take a sneak peek around some of the country’s quirkiest properties.
"This Torquay home is breathtaking and wouldn’t look out of place on a Game of Thrones film set.”
