** SOLD BY CHURCHILL'S ESTATE AGENTS, BRIXHAM **  If you are thinking of selling, please call James Churchill on 01803 882671 for a no obligation market appraisal.

This Victorian end of terrace cottage dates from circa 1857 we understand and enjoys a great location - very handy for the town, marina and Breakwater Beach, whilst enjoying views of the outer harbour, Torbay and surrounding coastline from all 3 floors.

The present owners have invested in many improvements to the cottage, including replacement upvc double glazed windows, which on the front are a sash-style. They have also installed French doors from the lounge to the rear courtyard and added French doors and a Juliet balcony to Bedroom 3. But the most impressive addition is that of dormers to the front and rear of the top bedroom, along with a balcony with stainless steel handrails and glass panels - a fantastic place to sit and enjoy views over the marina and Torbay.  This room has an en-suite shower/w.c., but it could also be used as a second lounge if desired.

The cottage is full of character, with much exposed stone and timber.  The accommodation is arranged over 3 floors, starting with a lounge/dining room on the ground floor, with a kitchen adjacent.  On the first floor are 2 double bedrooms and a bathroom with a modern white suite, whilst the second floor has the master bedroom with en-suite shower/w.c. and balcony enjoying the best views of the marina, breakwater, Torbay and Torquay beyond.  Gas central heating is installed, fired by a combination boiler.

Outside there are a choice of courtyard areas to sit, depending on the time of day and whether one prefers sun or shade.  There is side access via a gate and steps to a very useful lock-up workshop/store - ideal for beach/boating gear and bikes etc.

We recommend an inspection of this chain-free property.
