Situation Brixton Torr, set on the fringes of the South Hams, is an almost timeless hamlet, nestling in a beautiful wooded valley down which a babbling brook runs alongside a meadow to the tidal estuary of Cofflete Creek, an arm of the River Yealm. The setting is delightfully peaceful with tranquil walks through woods along the sides of the estuary. It is hard to believe that the busy city of Plymouth is less than six miles away. The village of Brixton is close by and very convenient for Plymouth with a regular bus service. The National Trust beach at Wembury is just 10 minutes by car, with further beaches at Mothecombe and the South Hams with its lovely countryside and coastline. The village has a church, 'Outstanding' Primary School, nursery, The Foxhound public house, fish and chip shop, general stores, Post Office store and a restaurant.

Plymouth itself is an historic and vibrant waterside City, well provided with colleges, grammar and public schools, modern university, the Peninsula Medical School, Theatre Royal and cinemas, large department stores, cafes, bistros and restaurants. The leisure facilities are outstanding with superb water-sports in and around Plymouth Sound.

Description Believed to date from the 1880's, this former railway worker's cottage has been extended to create a wonderful individual home, in a semi-rural location on the edge of the South Hams village of Brixton. The property also has a successful history as a part-time holiday let.

Inside on the ground floor, there is a dual aspect sitting room with wood-burner, utility room with plenty of storage and space/plumbing for a washing machine and a tumble drier, kitchen/diner including integrated electric double oven and grill, feature stained glass window and twin sinks, conservatory and downstairs WC.

Upstairs there is a spacious and well-appointed luxury contemporary-styled bathroom comprising bath, separate shower cubicle, glass basin and WC. The master bedroom features a dual aspect, vaulted ceiling and mezzanine level. A second double bedroom overlooking the rear garden with views to woodland beyond completes the first floor.

Outside To the front of the property is a paved parking area for 2 vehicles, with outbuilding for storage. Steps lead down to the property past a patio terrace and further storage room. There is side access to the rear garden.

The rear garden has two paved patio areas connected by a small flight of steps, with flower borders and shrubs. Summerhouse/storage shed.
