South facing walled garden, outdoor pool & great parking area to front. One of Brixham's most pretty dwellings. Chain Free.
A very desirable Regency House (Grade II*) - certainly one of the most interesting and attractive period homes in the area - set in partly secluded grounds which include a swimming pool and former stable block which previously has had planning permission to convert to residential use.
A country style house yet extremely convenient for most amenities with Brixham harbour and town centre being less than a mile away and the very useful local shops at St. Mary's Square (including a Spar with sub post office) less than quarter of a mile. Local schools are to hand, including Churston Grammar School which is a couple of miles away. Within the walls of Aylmer a family can enjoy the feel of a larger country home yet for practical necessities, be near to schools, doctors etc, it is superbly positioned for amenities.
There are many beautiful walks to hand including breathtaking coastal walks and the River Dart (Kingswear and Dartmouth) is easily accessible - less than 3 miles away. Access in and out of Brixham is quick and direct avoiding central traffic.
Aylmer is a Regency House with some Gothic influence. An extremely well proportioned and very 'livable' home for a contemporary family. Features include a beautiful hallway and staircase, curved interior walls, pretty strawberry Gothic windows and French doors and many original features including doors, slab floors, deep skirtings, window shutters and wood floors etc. A smart contemporary kitchen was fitted in recent years and two new bathrooms in 2017.
The house has gas central heating and receives a good deal of natural sunlight. There is ancillary accommodation that would create a flatlet and useful outbuildings ideal for hobbies & workshops etc. The gardens are relatively easy to maintain and there is ample extra parking to the front of the property and by the stable block. The swimming pool and landscaping was re-done in 2017 and is very appealing - a super, hot spot to enjoy long summer days.
