  • Attractive period property with high-level decked terrace with spectacular harbour views
  • Ideal location for coastal walks, Berry Head, Breakwater and beaches 
  • Short walk to Brixham town centre and harbour 
Property code: BX028

This property is situated close to Brixham’s bustling harbour, which is always busy with fishing boats, pleasure craft, and ferries which run around the bay to the resort town of Torquay. The harbour itself is a fascinating place for a stroll, as is the town itself where visitors can enjoy browsing the shops and sampling the local seafood served up by many of the local pubs and restaurants. Those who enjoy walks will love the coastal paths which lead out of town and offer fantastic views of the bay, whilst passing by some lovely secluded beaches such as those at St Mary’s Bay and Fishcombe Cove.

 Perched above the outer harbour and enjoying spectacular views over the marina, breakwater and across Torbay to Torquay is this delightful end terrace house. The Lookout is set above the road on a private pedestrian approach reached by either a 7 step or a 17 step flight of stairs, flagged by wrought iron railings and enjoying sea views. It is situated at the bottom of Ranscombe Road on its junction with Berry Head Road and King Street.

This cosy property is a wonderful place to enjoy a quiet weekend away, and makes for a fantastic couples’ retreat. On the ground floor of the property there is a lounge, kitchen, and separate dining room. On arrival guests will love to put their feet up in the cosy lounge, and during the cooler months, curl up in front of the warming coal-effect electric gas fire and enjoy the Smart TV from the comfy sofa. The dining room is next to the kitchen and offers a place for formal meals in front of the electric effect log burner. The kitchen has everything that guests will need to prepare their favourite dishes, should they choose to cook whilst on holiday, including an oven, hob, microwave, fridge/freezer, dishwasher, and a washer dryer. A door from the kitchen leads outside to the steep steps which bring guests to the terrace. The bedroom is located on the first floor: a double room with an en-suite shower room with WC, and views over the harbour. In an unexpected addition to the property, there is also a bathroom on this floor with a relaxing roll-top bath, separate shower, and WC.

Behind the property there are 3 levels of terraces, which is accessed from the ground-floor. There are steep steps leading to all 3 levels, the terraces provide spectacular views over Torbay. The steps up to the terraces are unlit and are dark at night. The table and chairs on the terrace provide the perfect space to enjoy drinks whilst taking in the stunning views.  The owners of the property provides guests with a free parking space for the marina car park, which is just 400 metres from the property, this must be arranged prior to arrival.
