About this property

A well-presented period property built in 1882 which is situated in a quiet south facing position in the heart of the old village. EPC Rating E.

The characterful detached house has been the subject of many thoughtful and attractive improvements in the last few years, capitalising on the village setting. The two excellent principal reception rooms are complemented by the conservatory/dining room and the kitchen which overlook the rear terrace and garden.

The house is in a quiet south facing position in the heart of the old village, and away from through traffic. The village primary school is a short walk away, while the general stores/post office and the Foxhound Inn, renowned for its good food and real ales are both within about 150 yards.

Brixton is convenient for both Plymouth and the A38, with the usual village amenities including a village store and Post Office, public house and Church as well as a choice of delightful countryside walks. The nearby village of Yealmpton is set in the beautiful South Hams countryside, just above the head of the Yealm estuary, with Dartmoor National Park to the north east and the coastline to the south with its beautiful estuaries, cliffs and beaches. The city of Plymouth is a short distance to the west and Newton Ferrers, at the mouth of the River Yealm and noted for its sailing, is even closer at hand.
