Property code: BX085

This period property has been carefully refurbished to offer a stylish blend of contemporary conveniences with original charm and features.

Situated in an area just tucked away from Brixham harbour, this property is within easy reach of everything this bustling fishing town has to offer. Amongst colourful fishermen’s houses that line the harbour you will find a charming array of independent shops, cafes, pubs, restaurants and galleries. The harbour itself boasts one of the largest fishing fleets in the UK together with a thriving fish market for stocking up for your stay.

On the ground floor, a spacious lounge with decorative ceiling cornicing, original feature fireplace, an elegant chandelier and array of stylish sofas is light and bright thanks to the large bay window to the front of the house. With a TV, DVD player and music player with Bluetooth connection, this is a tranquil space for unwinding after a long day. The lounge connects to a formal dining room via a large archway, which boasts a further feature fireplace and stained wooden flooring. The kitchen is contemporary and spacious, with plenty of workspace for everyone to lend a hand. Here you will find an electric induction hob, built-in electric oven and grill, dishwasher, under-counter fridge, freezer and microwave. For breakfasts and light meals, a table with seating for four offers an alternative dining space. There is a separate utility room to house the washing machine, iron and ironing board, together with a separate WC. A games room boasts a full-size football table, perfect for those with a competitive streak. On the first floor, the master bedroom boasts a magnificent four-poster bed, which offers wonderful views down to the bay, together with a chest of drawers, bedside tables and clothes hanging space. Also on this floor is a sunny twin bedroom that’s perfect for children, together with a separate WC and luxurious family bathroom complete with roll-top bath and separate shower. On the second floor, there is a large attic king-size bedroom, which features wooden flooring, a pretty dressing table and wonderful views through dual aspect windows.

Please note the rear terrace is accessed via steep steps in common with many Brixham properties that are built into the hillside. This may not suit all, however the front terrace was refurbished in 2018 and provides seating with an open sea view and maintains separation from the footpath by virtue of being raised a few feet.

The back garden boasts a decked area that acts as a suntrap and the front terrace also provides seating raised up and away from the road more conveniently for those not wanting to climb the rear steps.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

This is a cute cottage in a lovely location. It could be so much better. It is very tired and in serious need of updating. In places grotty-e.g. mouldy shower and damaged flooring. I think the photos were taken a while ago and it has had alot of wear and tear. Bedding and towels clean but overall we were dissapointed with the standards.

Given the price we paid, we did not expect the Earth, and the layout of the house was fine, the bedroom and living room were very comfortable and it has a good size kitchen. However, as it is advertised as a dog friendly holiday home, we felt that was somewhat misleading, as there is no enclosed outside space for the dogs. You have to walk them quiRead morete a distance for them to do their business! Also the steps to the rear patio were almost impossible to scale, particularly with an elderly dog! Hide

Beautiful property, plenty of room for everyone. Very steep steps to the rear decking but worth it for the view! Parking is limited but personally we had no problem finding space for our van and the car right outside the front door. Plenty of other spaces in nearby streets. Would love to stay here again

Our family spent a lovely week at Ciao Bella. The property is roomy however there is only one bathroom and a small cloakroom and so with 6 adults staying, an ensuite in maybe the top level bedroom would be useful. We enjoyed sitting outside the front of the property however the rear deck was not suitable with access via very steep steps. As previouRead moresly mentioned parking was a major issue and we had to park streets away which is difficult when unloading and loading car. Hide

Please be aware this property is not young child or dog friendly due to no grass area for dogs and dangerous open steps to the top floor. If you have mobility issues there are lots of steep steps to patio area at rear and at front entrance.
