A contemporary and modern barn conversion, finished to a high standard offering the perfect base for a family holiday in the English Riviera. Located along Milton Street in Brixham, the main town centre is just one mile away and is renowned for being the ‘Pirate Town’. Set foot onto the famous Golden Hind and imagine you are Sir Francis Drake about to embark on another adventure! Visit the vast array of cafes and restaurants and fill yourself up with the local fish bought fresh from the working fishing port. Heading further afield, Dartmouth (4 miles), Paignton (6 miles) and Torquay (8 miles) have popular attractions such as the Round Robin in Dartmouth, Paignton Zoo and the beautiful Torquay Harbourfront. The area has many beaches, some with lifeguards and easy parking and other more hidden coves. There is easy access to the South West coastal path for walkers, offering stunning views.
As you enter this well-decorated barn conversion, you are greeted with the open-plan diner/kitchen and lounge in an L shape across the ground floor. The kitchen offers ample cupboard space and integrated appliances. Leading from the kitchen is the lounge. The lounge offers plush sofas and a large wall-mounted Smart TV and glass frontage in the form of bi-folding doors that open to the large decked terrace at the front of the barn. Perfect for those long, warm summer evenings. On the other side of the property, on the ground floor is a cloakroom with WC and hand basin and then one of the three bedrooms. This bedroom has a king-size bed or can be unzipped to create two singles on request. Upstairs is the family bathroom with a shower, WC and hand basin. To your right is the master bedroom with a king-size bed and to the left of the family bathroom is the third bedroom with twin beds.
Outside is a large decked terrace area with outside seating which benefits from all-day sunshine throughout the summer season. It is an attractive space suitable for those alfresco dining moments. The property itself offers privacy with large wooden gates leading off the main driveway to the property.
Brixham is a beautiful harbourside town on the South Devon coast on the English Riviera. Brixham has a rich maritime history and a full-size replica of the Golden Hind can be found in the Inner Harbour. A short walk further on takes you to the Brixham Battery Heritage Centre with magnificent panoramic views across the bay or find out more at the Brixham Heritage Museum.
There are regular ferry trips to Paignton and Torquay or you can book a wildlife sea-fari or a fishing trip. The area is great for learning to sail which can be done at the Torbay Sea School or crew the 78-foot heritage sailing ketch for a morning, afternoon or evening sailing trip. There are a number of festivals throughout the year including the popular Pirate Festival which attracts thousands of visitors. For relaxation, it is hard to beat Breakwater Beach, an award-winning Blue Flag beach close to the mouth of the harbour.
