Recent research by Prudential has shown that Devon is in the number four spot of the top five most popular counties for homebuyers to retire to. The survey took account of both lifestyle and the environment. The port of Brixham and the resort of Paignton have much on offer for those seeking a change of lifestyle with access now hugely improved by the opening on the South Devon link road last December – no more queues through Kingskerswell! Around the harbour in Brixham is a wide choice of restaurants offering something for all tastes complimented by an ever increasing range of individual and specialist shops. The villages of Churston and Galmpton retain a great village community feel, whilst the Broadsands, Hookhills and Goodrington areas of Paignton have the joy of great beaches on the doorstep. Eric Lloyd & Co has a wide range of properties currently listed for sale covering all areas, prices and styles. Selecting four properties to match the number four spot in the “charts”, Jonathan Bye, director of Eric Lloyd & Co would recommend: A fully re-fitted and refurbished two bedroom bungalow in Manor Vale Road, Galmpton on the market at £429,000, an outstanding apartment at The Magnolias in Sands Road, Paignton on the market at £184,950, and a fine three bedroom detached bungalow in Lakes Close Brixham which has just been reduced to £249,950. Last but not least for those seeking a project for their retirement is a bay fronted Edwardian house in Bella Vista Road in need of complete modernisation and improvement with an asking price of £199,950.
