The Property
A rare opportunity to buy one of Brixham's true gems situated in the popular area of Higher Brixham, one mile from Brixham town centre. A stunning period residence set in 1/2 an acre of mature walled gardens dating from the mid 1890's. Featuring five bedrooms, two with en suite facilities and a very large lounge with a separate dining room. The kitchen is large enough to breakfast in, and there's a utility room adjacent with cloakroom off. There is an old coach house in the garden that could be converted to residential use (subject to planning consents) as acknowledged by an architect. There's also the potential to create a self-contained ground floor studio apartment. The generous loft space is partially developed with its own staircase and current permissions for storage. There is a 4 Kw solar panel installation currently providing an income of £2,000 per annum. There is a local convenience store and post office and there are excellent local schools including a local authority grammar school.
