A former Coastguards Cottage (Grade II listed) with panoramic sea views, parking, & landscaped sunny garden. With easy level access in and out of Brixham centre, this property offers everything you need to grab a piece of seaside living.
A wonderful example of a Grade II listed former coastguard's cottage uniquely constructed from Portland stone. Arguably one of the best positions for panoramic views which span from Brixham's Outer Harbour, Breakwater, Torbay, Lyme Bay and surrounding coastline, with Dartmoor in the distance.
The entrance to Berry Head Nature Reserve with its trees, lovely walks, cafe and breathtaking scenery is about 1/4 of a mile away. Shoalstone Beach and the open-air sea-water swimming pool are situated literally 50 yards from the base of the garden. Shoals restaurant is also in this location and makes for a great fish supper. The Berry Head Hotel is nearby with a fabulous sea view terrace, an ideal place to enjoy a drink and watch the sunset in the summer. Brixham harbour and shops are just over 1/2 a mile away - a pleasant level walk with views of the bay along the way. A local bus service runs nearby.
Seaholme was constructed in 1888 for the coastguards who used to man the lookout at Berry Head. The cottage is very deceptive in size, making it larger than may appear from the road. The kitchen/diner is cleverly designed to make the most of the panoramic views from two aspects, which also over look the garden. There is also a shower room and study/bedroom 3. The main living space is open plan, and is dual aspect making it very light and airy. There is a wood burning stove for those cosy evenings in, whilst watching the twinkling lights over Torbay. The first floor offers two good size double bedrooms, with characterful fireplaces and a family bathroom across the hallway.
To the front of the house there is a driveway providing off road parking. The gated access takes you to a walled courtyard with mature hedging and has a paved path to the front door. The current owner has landscaped the rear garden beautifully. There is a large sun terrace with the most fantastic sea views, looking down the well manicured lawn. The high hedging gives a good degree of privacy, but also allows the view to be uninterrupted. There is also the huge bonus of direct, private access right onto Shoalstone beach and Lido, via the locked gate at the bottom of the garden.
This home could also lend itself to being a second residence with great letting potential. The location is perfect in every way, benefitting from being slightly secluded, yet has the convenience of being able to walk into Brixham town centre. A real piece of Brixham heritage.
