The Crescent is a cul-de-sac of detached houses and bungalows on the edge of the village of Brixton in the Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The South Hams village of Brixton has good amenities including the CAMRA award winning 'Foxhound' public house, St Mary's Church and the post office/village shop. OFSTED have recently rated the C of E primary school as 'Outstanding'. For secondary schooling, the village lies in the catchment area of Ivybridge Community College for which transport is provided.
