Full description

Victorian END-TERRACE HOUSE located in an elevated, central position with stunning town and countryside views. Enjoying south-facing panoramic views over the fishing town of Brixham & countryside beyond. At the entrance level, a useful vestibule leads into an open plan living / dining area with separate modern kitchen just off. To the first floor is a superb size master bedroom with two further bedrooms, bathroom and separate WC. The property offers huge potential to further extend into the generous size loft; the house at the opposite end of this terrace has a crows nest balcony and if similar were constructed here (subject to the usual permissions) it would give incredible views over the Town.

Furzeham Villa enjoys south-facing panoramic views over the fishing town of Brixham, towards Higher Brixham and the countryside beyond. This very appealing Harbour fringe property must be viewed to appreciate both its position and the accommodation on offer.

Refurbished in recent years by the current owners, the house is above all bright and airy. Occupying an enviable position within a short walking distance of the town centre, harbour and waterfront, also nearby are the beauty spots of Battery Gardens, Churston Woods & superb coastal walks. A perfect main home or second home/letting option with parking on-street available in nearby roads & South Furzeham Road itself.

Of particular note is the spacious open plan living area which opens out to a stunning and very sunny decked terrace offering wonderful views. From the decked terrace steps lead down to the enclosed pretty terrace garden (with gate access to Furzeham Steps leading to Station Hill), perfect for outdoor entertaining and relaxing. Whilst the garden is low maintenance is it perfect for a gardener who enjoys a potter.

Accessed from South Furzeham Road with a few steps down to the front door, there is a useful utility store with power & light. The entrance lobby is also a handy spacious area and opens into the very welcoming living areas.

To the first floor there are 3 bedrooms currently arranged as a large master, double bedroom guest room (with unique sun terrace) and a third single bedroom/study with bathroom and separate WC. There is also an impressive loft bedroom (13'5 x 13'2 / 4.09 m x 4.01 m - loft ladder access) which offers further potential to extend (subject to the usual permissions) and maximise the delightful views on offer.

The property has been greatly improved during the vendors' ownership including: new double glazing throughout (2013), glazed staircase, rear decking, bathroom suite, modern kitchen (2011) and also benefits from gas central heating.

Internal viewing highly recommended.
