Property Description:

DESCRIPTION GUIDE PRICE £650,000 - £695,000

Originally two independent cottages, this superb property has been extended and reconfigured to form one generous sized individual character four bedroom semi-detached home, situated in an idyllic location along a quiet country lane on the edge of the village of Brixton, which could be potentially split (subject to consent) to form two dwellings.

The home is set in a plot of approximately ½ acre, has retained the original staircases and front entrances and it is advised that applicants study the floor plan to understand the flexible configuration of the home. The property will appeal to those looking for a country lifestyle.

Over the years the home has been improved and extended by the current owners, whilst leaving some blank canvas for the new owners to continue the journey. Recently, double glazing and a whole house ventilation system have been installed, whilst many walls have been re-plastered and there are numerous character features such as fireplaces and exposed walls and beams.

Prospective purchasers will be responsible for the final implementation of the new kitchen/dining room and any further intended works. When complete by the new prospective owners, it will leave a striking home with a feature kitchen/dining room with substantial sliding double glazed doors looking to the rear of the plot.

Whilst the extension has been granted as further accommodation to the main home, the owners have the view that one original section of the property (117) could be potentially re-installed as a one bedroom separate annexe or cottage accommodation (with bathroom, living room and kitchen), leaving the remaining three bedroom accommodation with bathroom, lounge and large kitchen/diner.

Outside there is an outbuilding and a log cabin which provides a useful space with potential for use as a home office, studio or workshop.

To the front of the property is a traditional cottage garden with a path to the front door and off road parking.

Immediately to the rear of the property is a terraced area for sitting out. Beyond lies a large lawn bordered by hedges and fences and a substantial vegetable garden.

Being ½ mile to the very centre of Brixton village and within pedestrian reach of the River Yealm inlet and access to various local footpaths. The River Yealm moorings and Harbour Authority are found at Newton Ferrers (under five miles).

Rarely do we have homes in such a location and in this setting, offering a lifestyle country location, yet being within reach of an active South Hams village and river.

SITUATION The cottage is situated on the edge of the South Hams village of Brixton which boasts amenities such as the CAMRA award winning 'Foxhound' public house, St Mary's Church and the Post Office/village shop. OFSTED have rated the C of E primary school Outstanding, while Brixton itself is situated in the beautiful South Hams countryside, some six miles from the centre of Plymouth with a regular bus service. 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, and Plymouth Sound boasts a wide range of water-sports. Outdoor pursuits such as golf, horse-riding, cycling are all available within a short distance, as is Dartmoor National Park.
