This very well-presented Grade II Listed former Coastguard's Cottage occupies what must be one of the prime positions in Torbay and enjoys superb 180 degree views, taking in 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 and breathtaking scenery is about 1/4 of a mile away and the South West Coastal Footpath, linking Brixham and Kingswear, runs nearby. Shoalstone Beach and its famous open-air sea-water swimming pool and lido are just behind the cottage and within a short walk. The Berry Head Hotel is also nearby - the terrace is an ideal place to enjoy a drink and watch the sunset. 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.
Built in approx. 1888 for the coastguards who used to man the lookout at Berry Head, this cottage is full of character and larger than may appear from the road.
Outside, there is a level off-street parking space to the front, whilst to the rear is a generous patio and good-size mainly lawned garden which overlooks the bay and enjoys a good degree of privacy.
If you enjoy uninterrupted sea views, country walks and a sense of seclusion, without being too far away from modern conveniences, we highly recommend a personal inspection - please call us for an appointment to view.
