With excellent living space, this substantial detached house is to be found in a leafy part of Brixham, just to the southwest of the town centre, which is within reasonable walking distance (downhill). Touchwood has been in long ownership, the previous owners having enjoyed a happy retirement here.  Although there have been improvements in recent years, including an updated gas boiler, cloakroom fittings, and patio doors to the ground floor reception room, the property would now benefit from further updating and decoration and has a guide price that reflects the condition.

This residence is much larger than may appear from a casual roadside glance and has reverse-level style accommodation, to maximize the views and light in the living areas.  Touchwood comprises at entry level a spacious hallway with cloakroom, 'L'-shaped kitchen, utility, dining room and lounge with a woodburner and southwest-facing balcony.  Downstairs there is a third reception room (ideal as a garden lounge in the summer months, or a games room/study), a family bathroom and 3 double bedrooms (master with en-suite facilities and dressing area).  Gas central heating is installed and there is partial double glazing.

The property also enjoys some pleasant views over the treetops to the Copythorne area and also peeps through the trees to the east, of the marina and Torbay beyond.

Touchwood has the benefit of a detached double garage off Parkham Lane, with a small area of hardstanding adjacent.  As well as a balcony to the rear, there is also a sheltered patio and steps down to an area of lawn.  Generally, the rear enjoys a good degree of privacy and a very pleasant 'green' backdrop.

We highly recommend a personal inspection of this 'chain-free' property.
