Situated on North View Road, this classic Brixham cottage perches high above Devon’s most iconic fishing town, commanding excellent views that stretch from the harbour and marina right across the bay and out to sea. Arranged over three floors, Marina Cottage's layout has been designed to maker the most of its exceptional position above the town, with the front rooms enjoying stunning sea views. Upon entering the property guests will discover a colourful stained glass front door panel depicting a fishing trawler which nods to Brixham’s illustrious fishing history; and a painted staircase in the entrance hall leads to the upper two floors where the living / dining room, kitchen and master bedroom can be found.
On the ground level there are two airy bedrooms, a double and a twin, with large windows in both lending a bright and welcoming atmosphere. The twin room features a decorative fireplace while the double has wonderful sea views, and there is a contemporary family bathroom complete with freestanding bathtub and enormous walk-in shower on this floor as well.
Upstairs the living room incorporates a dining area with seating for six. Large windows mean the ocean panorama beyond takes centre stage, with comfortable seating and plush furnishings creating a lovely vantage point from which to take in the ever-changing scenes of the harbour and bay below. Three steps down from the living room, the modern galley kitchen is newly fitted and bright with high gloss units and a range of small and large appliances provided to make home cooking a cinch.
From this floor there is access to the steep multi-level back garden which has a furnished terrace with dining table and chairs, as well as a further elevated deck with table and bench seating. Upstairs on the top floor, the terrific en-suite master bedroom features a king size bed and plenty of storage, and three large windows bring the blue and greens of the bay’s waters from the outside in.
Set within Torbay, Brixham is well-positioned as a base from which to explore the neighbouring towns and beaches of Paignton and Torquay which are all just a short drive, ferry or bus journey away. Closer to home visitors can enjoy a relaxing day on one of the area’s local pebble coves at either Fishcombe or Churston, both of which make for a scenic spot for enjoying a walk or for taking a refreshing dip in the cool clear waters of the bay. Slightly further away but still within easy reach is the South Hams town of Dartmouth which is a lovely place to enjoy a wander along the River Dart or a visit to its castle.
