One of Brixham's finest detached edwardian villas, facing south, and enjoying lovely open views across the town to the rolling hills beyond. Merlins is tastefully presented for sale and still retains many of it's original features including picture rails, high ceilings with cornices, fireplaces and stripped flooring. Walking through the period black door you are greeted with an Entrance Porch with period tiled flooring, a stained glass door gives access to the Hall off which there is the imposing Drawing Room and Dining Room - both with bay windows. Also on the ground floor is a good size Shower Room, Kitchen/Breakfast Room and a very useful Walk-in Pantry. Upstairs there are 4 good size Bedrooms - two of which have lovely arched topped windows. The main Bedroom benefits from an en-suite Shower Room and there is a family Bathroom. As you would expect there is gas fired central heating and UPVC framed double glazing. To the front there is an attractive garden, garage and parking - an obvious benefit being this close to this town. To the rear there is a good size enclosed garden and totally un-expected there is a stone built Barn which is currently used for storage but could be used for a variety of different purposes. This delightful home should be viewed to fully appreciate all it's charm and appeal.
