** SOLD BY CHURCHILL'S ESTATE AGENTS IN BRIXHAM ** If you own a similar property and are thinking of selling, we would be very pleased to speak to you as we have a number of unsuited buyers, looking for similar property. Please call James Churchill on 01803 882671 for a no-obligation appraisal.
A unique detached 4/5 bedroom house, which enjoys a desirable location, benefiting from both lovely views over the town and harbour, as well as easy access to the town's shops and restaurants, via Cavern Hill. The beach at Breakwater is within reasonable walking distance along the front, whilst for keener walkers, there are also some beautiful views from Fishcombe Point at the north end of the harbour.
The property has been renovated and decorated by our clients to a high standard in a neutral tone, with new carpets throughout. It really is a 'one-off', with a spacious split-level design, starting with the master bedroom on the top floor, which is a great size and has a patio door onto a roof terrace with fantastic views over the centre, across to All Saints Church, with the harbour, Torbay and Lyme Bay beyond. There is also a bathroom with separate w.c. on this level.
Below this is the living level, with a well-proportioned lounge/diner. This is a bright, triple-aspect room with a feature open fireplace. Also on this level is the bespoke fitted kitchen with granite and timber working surfaces and a double bedroom. On the ground floor are 3 further double bedrooms and a family bathroom.
Gas central heating is installed and the windows are double glazed with low-maintenance upvc units.
There is parking space on the driveway and an integral single garage.
The walled gardens are a delight - one area is well stocked with a variety of shrubs, whilst another has level lawn and a timber summerhouse - a great place to enjoy the 'atmosphere' of Brixham.
For a buyer who is interested in maximizing the value of the site, there may be an opportunity to develop the area of garden to the side of Overstrand with a detached 2 storey house, subject of course to obtaining planning and building regulation approval.
In our opinion, this would make an ideal family home, close to the town's amenities, or indeed, a very special holiday home. Available now, with no onward chain.

The gardens are an unexpected surprise – mainly walled and enjoying a feeling of seclusion. Some areas also have a view over the town and sea beyond. In front of the house is an area under the carport, which would be ideal for coal/firewood storage, or to hang washing on those ‘uncertain’ days. A gate from there leads through an arch to a very well stocked garden, with raised beds. There is an area of patio above a lawn, which also has a timber summerhouse. Steps lead to other areas of patio, with shrub borders.
