Full description

An attractive and substantial period home with many original features and far reaching sea views, 4 bedrooms (1 en suite), large 1st floor balcony, front and rear walled gardens, garage. EPC Band F.

Situation - Set in an elevated position over the town with far reaching views across Tor Bay, this attractive period home is set in the historic fishing town of Brixham on the South Devon coast at the southern end of the sheltered Tor Bay.
Brixham is a bustling harbour side town famous as a fishing port, and has one of the largest fishing fleets in the United Kingdom. The fresh catch is sold in the Fish Markets located on the quayside. Brixham is placed in such a way that the accommodation is located around the heart of the town creating a warm and cosy ambiance. The town has a long enriched history and is famous for its Napoleonic connections, with the landing of William of Orange on the Quay in 1688. There is a very impressive marina, eternally popular with the boating fraternity, and many fine restaurants.

Description - Thought to have been constructed in the mid 1800's this wonderful period home lies within the Brixham Town Conservation Area and benefits from a lovely outlook over the gardens and across Tor Bay, with the most spectacular views from the upper floors. Many original features are retained such as high ceilings, wooden sash windows, slate mantelpieces, doors, and varnished floorboards. Accommodation comprises of four bedrooms (master en suite), sitting room, living room, kitchen, dining room and study. In addition there are several store rooms and a large loft space giving the potential to increase the accommodation subject to planning. The front and rear gardens are privately surrounded by stone walling and are of a good size with access to a large single garage.

Accommodation - Steps lead up to the front door opening to an enclosed entrance vestibule and on to the hallway with varnished floorboards, feature arch and turned staircase leading to the first floor. At the end of the hall a door leads to the cloakroom W.C and then on to the rear garden. To the right of the hall is the sitting room with large bay window with a door to the garden, painted floor boards and open fire place with tiled surround and slate mantelpiece. Adjoining this room, and also with access from the hall is bedroom four and a shower room. Together these rooms could be made over into an annexe subject to permissions. The living room also has a bay window, varnished floor boards and a gas living flame fire with slate mantelpiece. Both rooms at the front benefit from views over the garden and glimpses of sea in the bay. The kitchen is just off the dining room with a range of painted wooden units under a solid wood work surface with inset ceramic sink. There is space for a cooker and under counter fridge and freezer. The pantry provides extra storage and plumbing for a washing machine. The dining room has a fitted dresser thought  to have been made from ships timbers and is also home to a gas fired AGA. A door leads to a conservatory, also accessed from the kitchen.
The family bathroom is accessed from the half landing, and on the first floor are three bedrooms and the study, where steps rise to the loft hatch and large loft space with velux windows, from where there are amazing sea views taking in Brixham Harbour right across Tor Bay. Doors from the study lead to a large balcony which also allows spectacular views. The master bedroom has an en suite shower room and a dressing room with fitted wardrobes. Bedrooms two and three are of a good size, bedroom three has a shower cubicle.

Gardens & Grounds - The front garden is privately surrounded by stone walling and is laid to lawn interspersed with a variety of trees and shrubs, a line of shaped Yew trees marks out the original carriage way. The balcony creates a covered terrace by the front door - a lovely place to sit and relax. The rear garden is also walled, with an area of lawn, mature trees, and wooden gates giving vehicular access leading to a large single garage. From the garage a door accesses three store rooms which, with a little ingenuity and work, could be incorporated into the main accommodation.
