Property of the Week: Imposing Brixham villa retains wealth of character

Joseph Bulmer

New to the market is this imposing, six-bedroom, detached period house in Brixham.

Clifton Villa is in a fantastic position - right in the middle of town with a generous degree of parking on the front and yet being somewhat 'tucked away'.

The current owner has done an outstanding job of presenting a comfortable and up-to date home while sympathetically retaining a wealth of character that radiates throughout.

The gardens are tiered over three levels while the front has a seating terrace and an impressive open view which can be seen from several bedrooms.

Parking to the front is spacious enough for approximately three to four vehicles and the town centre and harbour is only a short stroll away.

Clifton Villa is one of only a few substantial homes that is located centrally and conveniently to Brixham town centre.

The property itself boasts six double bedrooms, three bath/shower rooms, two additional WCs, a useful
utility room, kitchen / diner and two beautiful bay fronted reception rooms complete with log burners.

There are many original features located throughout this house including but not limited to, attractive floor tiling to the main entrance hallway, timber floorboards, decorative fireplaces and in a subtle yet eclectic mix of old with new the main bathroom has a vintage claw foot bath with complimentary bespoke half height surround mother of pearl tiling.

The property is extremely versatile and, as such, the annexe to the rear with private access and garden area provides the vendor with additional income.

There is also currently a further self-contained area to the top floor which again would be useful for either older children living at home or short-term letting if so required.

The open-plan kitchen and dining area leads out to the rear courtyard garden and is ideal for either aI fresco dining or entertaining.

There are further tiered areas to the rear of the property with one giving private access to the annexe accommodation and a further leading up to another secluded area.

There is also a delightful sun terrace to the front of the property and from here views can be enjoyed across Brixham town centre and up towards Higher Brixham and the green fields of Hillhead.

Further areas to the front aspect are laid to greenery and low-level borders which would be ideal for a keen gardener as the property receives a good degree of sunlight here.

Clifton Villa is presented to a good standard and it should be noted that owing to the property's open and sunny position, the current owner has invested in solar panels as an additional form of heating.

A real bonus here is the off-road parking located to the front of the property and being ample space for at least 3three to four cars.

Should the parking not need to be utilised there is a high demand for parking in this area and as such a further income could be obtained from the potential renting of spaces.

Clifton Villa is on the market for £695,000. For details, or to book a viewing, call Winkworth Torbay on 01803 444595 or call in to their offices in Fore Street, Brixham
