Property Description:

PRICE Guide £425,000 to £450,000.

DESCRIPTION Situated at the head of a no-through cul-de-sac in a popular residential road, this delightful detached home enjoys a superb position, with a wrap-around garden backing onto fields. Available on the open market for the first time since its construction in 1960, the property has been a beloved family home for over sixty years and offers good sized accommodation over two floors, enjoying countryside views from several rooms. Whilst it would benefit from some cosmetic updating, the house nevertheless has the basis to create a superb family home and boasts a number of lovely original features, including a period fireplace in the sitting room and woodblock flooring to the entrance hall, sitting room and dining room. No onward chain.

SITUATION Situated in the beautiful South Hams countryside, some six miles from the centre of Plymouth with a regular bus service, Brixton has a good range of amenities including the CAMRA award winning Foxhound public house, St Mary's Church, a Post Office, popular fish and chip shop, Texaco garage and Otter garden centre. OFSTED have rated the C of E primary school as 'Outstanding'. For secondary schooling, the village lies in the catchment area of the 'Good' Ivybridge Community College for which transport is provided, and Plymouth boasts three Grammar schools (two girls' and one boys').

The historic waterfront city of Plymouth has a range of shops, department stores, restaurants, cinemas, theatres, colleges and university. The nearby sandy beaches of Wembury and Mothecombe are in easy reach, as is the yachting haven of Newton Ferrers (residents of Brixton are eligible to apply for moorings via Yealm Harbour Authority), and Plymouth Sound boasts a wide range of water-sports. Outdoor pursuits such as golf, horse-riding, cycling, etc. are all available within a short distance as is Dartmoor National Park. The village boasts a good network of public footpaths in the surrounding countryside and Cofflete creek, and for keen gardeners, Brixton Composters green waste recycling centre is located on the outskirts of the village.
