Many people dream of owning a cottage by the seaside, either for a change of lifestyle, a holiday home or for holiday letting. The autumn is the perfect time to start a search for such a property with the completion of such a purchase now likely to take place early in the New Year allowing plenty of time in the run up to the spring to get everything in place for the summer of 2017! Eric Lloyd & Co’s offices currently have a great selection of cottages on the market both in and around Brixham harbour as well as in higher Brixham and the village of Galmpton. The properties around the harbour include an outstanding extended three bedroom cottage in St Peter’s Terrace and a cottage in North View Road, both with fantastic views over the harbour and bay. Within a short stroll of the harbour are cottages in Ranscombe Road, Church Street, Higher Steps and King Street. A little further away from the harbour is a cottage in Burton Street, a tucked away detached cottage in Drew Street plus a most unusual cottage with a garden in Milton Street. In Galmpton village is a charming stone faced cottage in Greenway Road with garden and parking handy for everything the village has to offer. If you are seeking your dream cottage call us on 01803 852773 or 01803 844466 to arrange a viewing. P.S. Several eagle eyed readers noticed the error in the punch line of last week’s column; it should have reading “listening skills”!
