Whilst the weather last weekend in South Devon was not at its best, it was certainly better than in many parts of the U.K. It was at least mild with enough sunshine between the showers to allow the opportunity for a gentle stroll through the gardens of Agatha Christie’s former home at Greenway House on the banks of the river Dart, now owned by the National Trust. The garden there is now bursting back to life and is a riot of spring colours! Well worth a visit and this year they are serving high tea in the house. The South Devon property market has already burst fully into its spring life with Eric Lloyd & Co’s Herald Express advert featuring a dozen properties all just listed onto the market. Amongst these properties is something for everyone. They range from a refurbished flat in Brixham Villa on New Road on the market at an asking price of £92,500 through to an outstanding “executive” five bedroom house in Paignton’s Mimosa Way – asking price £365,000. In Brixham is a character cottage in Temperance Steps, houses in North Hill Close, Cudhill Road, Downfield Close as well as Hillrise, Galmpton. Included in these latest listings are bungalows in Churston Way, Blue Waters Drive, Broadsands Park Road and Bridle Close. Jonathan Bye, director of Eric Lloyd & Co, commented that “these new listings show continuing confidence in the local property market. The early spring is one of the ideal times to place a property onto the market if you are planning on moving.” To arrange your free valuation call Brixham (01803) 852773 or Churston (01803) 844466.
