Property description

Guide price £240,000 - £250,000


This beautifully renovated semi-detached cottage is a real gem, with an interior that's full of character and charm. Situated in the popular village of Brixton, in easy access of the coast and Plymouth, this two double bedroom property is ideal for those wanting a village home as a main residence or as a second home. The property has undergone many improvements such as a new roof covering, damp proofing, new traditional style uPVC double glazed windows, new kitchen and new bathroom plus decorating throughout.

Hidden behind a large hedge and gate, the property enjoys a high level of privacy in the heart of the village. The property comprises two double bedrooms, bathroom, open plan living/dining room and kitchen. To the front and rear of the property there are decked areas, and there is on street parking (available on a first come first served basis) adjacent to the property.


Brixton is situated about 15 minutes from the city of Plymouth (5.5 miles), but is very much a country village surround by the rolling hills of the South Hams countryside. A thriving village, there is a strong sense of community here with many community groups, an 'Outstanding' village school, and church. Fancy a pint and a bite to eat? The Foxhound will give you a warm welcome with a wide range of real ales and home cooked food, much of which supplied by local producers. The fish and chip shop is well regarded with regular customers who travel from Brixton and the surrounding villages. A post office counter is available in the mornings and Otter garden centre at the edge of village sells more than just plants and lifestyle products, with a large café for coffee, cake or lunch.

Local beaches include Wembury (National Trust) and Mothecombe, both accessible in under 15 minutes and Dartmoor National Park is within a 20 minute drive. Residents of Brixton can apply for moorings in the Yealm Harbour Authority. The village has a wonderful network of footpaths down to the estuary and across the local fields. The nearby town of Plymstock has a range of independent shops and supermarkets such as Lidl and Morrisons. The city of Plymouth offers a wide range of shops, restaurants, cinemas and theatres plus a mainline train station and continental ferry port.


The décor is a wonderful blend of contemporary and country living, with creative flourishes that make this a truly individual home. The front door opens into an enclosed porch, with space for coats and shoes. A stable door opens into the living room which stretches across the front of the house with space for sofas, dining table and chairs. A woodburner creates a focal point for a cosy winter's night, whilst the exposed beams, wooden flooring and window seat add age and character. Two windows overlook the front garden with a third overlooking the rear garden.

A step up leads into the kitchen which has a skylight and window to the side. Integrated appliances include a slimline dishwasher, washing machine, electric fan assisted oven and grill, fridge with freezer compartment and electric hob with extractor fan over. A short corridor leads to the bathroom with a large walk-in shower, WC and basin on vanity unit. The stable door opens out to the rear patio which is decked and affords a high degree of privacy.

Stairs lead from the living room up to the first floor landing. Doors open to the two double bedrooms which both overlook the front. The primary bedroom features a charming period fireplace and a useful over-stairs storage cupboard. Both bedrooms are carpeted.
