MILTON DENE Cottage is a unique GRADE ll LISTED CHARACTER COTTAGE situated in the desirable Higher Brixham hamlet of St Mary's. The popular harbour town centre is just over 1/2 mile away and there are many amenities nearby including a convenience store with post office, schools, pub, takeaway, hairdressers and of course, the Church. Also nearby is the park, and the beaches at Mansands and St Mary's Bay. A bus service links Brixham and Kingswear / Dartmouth and the South Hams.
This striking accommodation has a wealth of features which give it a very warm and 'cosy farmhouse' feel. These include stripped timber panelled doors, beamed effect ceilings, an open inglenook fire in the lounge, exposed stone walls and timber lintels. There are three double bedrooms and a fourth single bedroom just adjacent to the master bedroom, which could be utilised as a dressing room, with potential even to convert it to provide en-suite facilities. The reception space is excellent with lounge, dining room with feature fireplace, and a superb garden room which leads out to the rear patio and charming garden. The large part-walled rear garden is a particular feature, well-tended, with patios, generous vegetable plot and raised decking from which sea views can be enjoyed. A garage and further workshop store are accessible from the rear garden. Many of the garden areas enjoy a good degree of privacy and sun.
Dated Circa 17th Century as two cottages originally, it is understood that the property had a remodel in the 19th Century to its status as one large dwelling. In its current ownership the property has been lovingly cared for with a new slate roof, secondary double glazing, electrical rewire and new RCD fuse board, a new gas combination boiler for hot water and heating, flooring. The bathroom, shower room and kitchen are all new in recent ownership.
The garden room, shower room and utility arrangement would make a very comfortable annexe or working studio apartment.
Viewing is advised to appreciate the charm, size and character within.
