This very spacious farmhouse-style property is full of character and reputed to be around 300 years old. It stands behind high walls on the edge of Higher Brixham and the plot enjoys a good degree of privacy.
If you enjoy walking (or have dogs to walk!) the location is excellent - the entrance to St. Mary's Park is a little further up the road and St. Mary's Bay and the coastal footpath is just over 1/2 a mile away.
The town centre and harbourside are about 3/4 of a mile away and a local bus service runs nearby. There are 2 convenience stores to be found within a short walk, at Castor Road and St. Mary's Square.
A casual roadside glance belies the size of this property. Both living and bedroom space are exceptional and it would make a fantastic family home. It comprises a 22' lounge, 28' kitchen/dining room, a large study, 5 double bedrooms (2 with en-suite facilities), plus a smart family bathroom. Upvc double glazing is installed and there is gas-fired central heating.
Outside there is ample parking on the driveway, whilst the front of the property is draped in mature Wisteria. The rear garden is lovely - enclosed by high walls and very sheltered - a gardeners dream.
