Driftwood is a contemporary, three-storey, detached holiday property built into the side of the hill overlooking Brixham and Torbay. The open plan living room has picture windows, and patio doors open onto a balcony which basks in the setting sun. There are steps leading to another terrace below for al-fresco dining and watching the sun set over Torbay. The ground floor master bedroom has great views, as does one of the bedrooms on the first floor, where there is also a bathroom. The property benefits from a garage for a medium sized car, with additional on street parking nearby. Panoramic views can be enjoyed from Brixham town and harbour across Torbay and beyond to Lyme Bay on a clear day. Driftwood is a lovely house in a great position, ideal for a holiday whatever the time of year. There is easy access to the coastal footpath, but you may decide just to sit back and enjoy the scenery.
