DESCRIPTION Originally built in the 1930's, the house was extended and modernised some 10 years ago to create this delightful spacious family home. The property was architecturally designed and sits within approximately 3 acres of formal gardens and parkland, maximising the spectacular views of the surrounding countryside whilst maintaining a degree of privacy. The property is approached through secure, remotely operated electronic gates, opening onto a sweeping drive with ample parking for several vehicles in addition to the generous garaging.

The property offers spacious and elegant accommodation with high quality finishes, fixtures and fittings. This delightful home is located within walking distance of the village of Brixton. 

SITUATION Brixton is a small village some 5 miles east of Plymouth on the Kingsbridge Road. It is very convenient for Plymouth, the excellent shopping centre at Plymstock and the South Hams with its lovely countryside and coastline. The village has a church, Primary School, nursery, public house, fish and chip shop, general stores, Post Office store, social club and a restaurant.

Plymouth itself is an historic and vibrant waterside City, well provided with colleges, grammar and public schools, modern university, the Peninsula Medical School, Theatre Royal and cinemas, large department stores, cafes, bistros and restaurants. The leisure facilities are outstanding with superb watersports in and around Plymouth Sound.


ACCOMMODATION This is a very impressive and substantial five bedroom property, offering flexible use of its spacious and airy accommodation. With its large picture windows which maximise the influx of natural light and make the most of the impressive views, creating a light and bright home. A clever use of space allows for easy entertaining and affords comfortable living. The property could easily be adapted to house an elderly relative or, alternatively, there is potential for the main garage to be converted into separate living accommodation, (subject to the usual permissions), with plumbing and electricity already connected. 

GARDENS & GROUNDS The mature grounds, whilst extensive, extend to 2.822 acres (1.142 ha), and are easily to maintain. They are largely lawned and are extremely safe and secure for children and animals. Mature woodland extends along the southern boundary. 

GARAGING AND OUTBUILDINGS With garaging for at least five vehicles in two separate buildings, the property would particularly suit a car enthusiast. The main garage block is constructed over two levels with potential for a home office above or for use as storage. There is a further very large single garage to the far western side of the grounds, with a workshop beyond. There are further outbuildings including three timber sheds, one of which provides further garaging. There is also a disused World War II air raid shelter which is used as a log store. 

TENURE Freehold.
