Property code: BX013

Three-storey, end-of-terrace cottage located on a quiet residential street close to centre of Brixham and within walking distance of the town’s busy harbour, as well as shops, beaches, and eateries.

This property is located a stone’s throw from the town centre of Brixham, situated in an elevated position on the west side of Torbay. Brixham itself is a harbour town, with a proud maritime history, which visitors may like to explore by jumping on board the fascinating replica of the Golden Hind. The harbour continues to be busy today, and there is a flourishing fishing industry which is very much in evidence from the town’s numerous pubs and restaurants which specialise in the local seafood. There are several beaches within easy reach of the town centre, including Shoalstone Beach, which has the additional draw of a wonderful 53 metre tidal pool, providing safe bathing, no matter what the conditions at sea.

 

Several exterior steps lead to the front door of this attractive property, bringing guests to the open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner, a lovingly styled room with some tasteful retro design touches. The lounge, is a welcoming light-filled space with a large sofa and comfortable chairs surrounding the TV, DVD, and cosy open fire. Enjoy the  views to the town’s harbour from the lounge.  One step up leads to the kitchen/diner with its dining table and breakfast bar providing plenty of space for family meals. Guests will easily find everything they need to make themselves at home in the kitchen, including an oven, hob, microwave and fridge. The washing machine and freezer, meanwhile, can be found in a separate covered utility area. On the first floor of the property are two bedrooms, the first of these is a double room which has the unusual benefit of its own  covered conservatory which overlooks the garden and provides a lovely private space to sit and relax. The second bedroom on this floor is a twin bedroom, whilst the first-floor bathroom offers a shower-over-bath and WC. The master bedroom, a double room, occupies the second floor of the property and enjoys views of the harbour and beyond to the sea.

 

Outside, to the rear of the properties, the garden is made up of several charming terraced patio spaces with steps connecting each area. Garden furniture is provided so that guests can make the most of these outdoor spaces, and one area is covered to provide shelter and a handy drying space. Please note that there are steep steps linking the patio areas, so children will need to be supervised. There is a parking space provided to the side of the property, please note this is on a steep incline,  additional on street parking is available on a first come basis

Lovely cottage and really well equipped with everything you could need. Garden is a great space with lots of levels to catch the sun/get the shade. Really close to the harbour and the 98 steps did get easier! Car park space was really handy to have.

A well maintained and spacious property that benefits hugely from having it's own (albeit steep!) driveway. It is situated very close to the harbour centre and is a relatively easy 20 minutes walk to the wonderful Berry Head. The less energetic may find the walk back up the 90+ steps from the harbour a little challenging though!

Up on a hill , parking was a nightmare and the access very dangerous for elderly people, this apart it was a well laid out and thought out property. It was clean and well maintained.
