Description This delightful property is located in a wonderful country setting, boasting a plot of just under 0.5 acres, being under 0.4 miles to the very centre of Brixton village and within pedestrian reach of the River Yealm (0.4miles) with access to various local footpaths. The River Yealm moorings and Harbour Authority are found at Newton Ferres, (under 5 miles).
Rarely do we have homes in such a location and in this setting, offering a lifestyle country location yet being within reach of an active South hams village and river. Whilst the home currently offers 3 bedrooms, the property itself has a floor area of circa 1,340 sqft and offers potential to extend further to create additional living space, (subject to various consents). The home has been tastefully renovated and extended in 2017 and now offers bright and well-proportioned accommodation across two floors, bursting with character. The kitchen/breakfast room is a fabulous addition, with exposed stonework, sliding glazed doors to the gardens and integrated appliances including a Kenwood electric cooker, dishwasher and fridge/freezer. There are two reception rooms, both of which benefit from wood burning stoves. On the first floor, there are three bedrooms, two of which have fitted wardrobes, cast iron fireplaces and a southerly aspect, along with a large family bathroom with a separate shower and roll top bath.
To rear of the cottage there is a pretty walled courtyard and to the front, an attractive walled and fenced established garden, laid to lawn with flower and shrub borders and a pedestrian gateway providing access to the lane. From the lane, a gravelled driveway provides access to a parking and turning area and there is a pathway leading to the cottage. The grounds are mostly fenced, with established trees, raised vegetable plots, a chicken enclosure and a summer house, (in need of some repair). In total, the grounds extend to approximately 0.5 acres.
