This Victorian terrace house enjoys fabulous panoramic views over Brixham's outer harbour, (including the fish quay and marina), Torbay, Lyme Bay and surrounding coastline. It is situated within reasonable walking distance of the town centre shops and restaurants, with Furzeham Green being just around the corner. On-street parking, although not guaranteed, is quite often available nearby on South Furzeham Road or North Furzeham Road.
The property is deceptively spacious and has a floor area which is huge in comparison with many of the cottages around the harbour - ideal for those buyers looking to accommodate a larger family. The main highlights are a 22' long lounge which opens to a 29' long sun terrace overlooking the harbour. There is also a generous 'L'-shaped kitchen/diner, plus a study or office, which would be ideal for those who work from home. Currently there are 3 bedrooms, but a partition through the main bedroom would create an extra bedroom (and both would still be doubles).
Gas central heating is installed with a modern gas-fired combination boiler and the majority of the windows are double glazed.
Due to the location, views and low maintenance outside space, we feel that this property would make an ideal second home, but alternatively would suit those looking for a home around the harbour, but needing a bit more space than a traditional Brixham cottage could provide.
This substantial property would now benefit from some improvement and we do recommend an internal viewing to fully appreciate the character and potential this property offers.
