About this property

A detached 4 double bedroom stone barn conversion with garaging/workshop, and large south facing garden, just outside the South Hams village of Brixton.


Little Brook is a characterful detached house which originated as a barn and was subsequently extended, standing in a large garden, set in countryside just to the North East of the South Hams village of Brixton. The setting offers privacy without being isolated, being one of seven dwellings off a private drive, south facing and on a gentle slope well protected by established trees and with a long view over the Yealm Valley. The well-proportioned beamed accommodation includes a generous reception hall, with a large sitting room, and adjoining family room, study, and 23 ft long kitchen/dining room. The four double bedrooms on the first floor make this an ideal family house.

Outside there is an excellent garden, mainly laid to lawn, with a terrace area adjoining the house. An ample parking area and drive give easy access the double garage, which has two utility/workshop rooms to the rear.


This position is ideal for those requiring good access to Plymouth and the A38, the latter which is a mere 5 minutes' drive to the north. The M5 at Exeter is only 40 minutes' average driving time away. Brixton is equipped with a primary school, pub, church, and Post Office and is on a main bus route to Plymouth City Centre. Yealmpton offers more comprehensive facilities, including a health centre with dispensary, and Elburton Village, about 2.5 miles distant also has a range of shops. Many unspoilt South Hams beaches are within easy reach, and the yachtsmen's haven of Newton Ferrers is 4.5 miles away.

At the crossroads just before the brow turn right and continue for about 150 yards to turn right into the private drive marked “Woolaton” and the property will be found at the bottom of the properties, on the right.

On the 18th May 2020, in line with government guidelines for estate agency, we resumed viewings and valuations of property. Where possible we will be minimising the numbers of viewings by first offering buyers a virtual tour. When viewings take place in person, social distancing and safety protocols will be in place.

We would like to remind all buyers that travel to the South Hams should be achievable in a day (round trip) and for those who live further away, a virtual tour with one of our agents will be offered until travel restrictions change.

In the meantime, our team are still available to help by phone, email or video conference.
