About this property

A 2 bedroom semi-detached cottage located in the heart of Brixton, within easy reach of Plymouth and the Yealm Estuary.

A semi-detached cottage located in the heart of Brixton, within easy reach of Plymouth and the Yealm Estuary.

Thought to date from the mid 1800's, with possibly earlier origins, the characterful cottage lies in the heart of the South Hams village of Brixton, close to the church, and with southerly views to the Yealm valley. Set back from the road the cottage has a distinctive ornately timbered gable elevation with tile hanging and revealed stonework, under a tiled roof. There is a small front garden area, and a useful porch which leads to the sitting/dining room. The compact kitchen lies to the back, and there is a small hall area and staircase leading to the two south facing bedrooms and the bathroom.

Having been let for many years the owners have just completed a programme of refurbishment including the replacement of the kitchen and bathroom, renewal of the central heating boiler with a modern combi unit, and complete internal redecoration. Windows are double glazed with attractive lattice leading.

The village of Brixton lies within the beautiful South Hams, about 4 miles from Plymouth's City Centre and waterfront. The area to the south of the A379 is part of the South Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) and borders Cofflete Creek and the estuary of the River Yealm. A main bus route to the City Centre and out into the South Hams passes the property and within the village there is a primary school, Post Office, The Foxhound pub, a small restaurant, and the parish church. Many miles of outstanding walk are available from the doorstep.

Mains water, electricity, gas and drainage. Gas fired central heating.

The property is set back from the road to the east side of Brixton, close to the parish church. When entering the village on the A379 from Plymouth pass the fish and chip shop and The Foxhound pub on the right, and continue for about 200 metres, and just before the road bears right, turn off to the left and the property will be found immediately on the left
