A generous detached period house in the picturesque village of Compton offering a great deal of potential and versatile, spacious accommodation.

Brookside is an attractive period house with handsome stone elevations offering plenty of charm and character.

The property which has been in the same ownership for many years, has been clearly loved and cherished during that period, does now offer tremendous potential for a degree of updating and refurbishment and provides the ideal opportunity for a buyer to put their own stamp on their new home.

Located in the heart of the highly regarded village of Compton, directly overlooking fields at the front, the property is around a quarter of a mile from the village's famous 14th century castle and tea rooms which is managed by the National Trust. The English Riviera towns of Torquay and Paignton are both around 4 miles away, whilst the Bohemian town of Totnes and the vibrant market town of Newton Abbot are around 6 miles away.


The accommodation is extensive and is presented over 2 floors. On the ground floor are 3 separate reception rooms, an eat-in kitchen, W.C and walk-in pantry. The first floor offers 4 double bedrooms, the master with en-suite bathroom, a family bathroom and separate W.C. In addition to the main house, at the rear is a large workshop with games/hobbies room above. Although accessible from both levels of the main house these areas offer tremendous potential for a self-contained annexe subject to obtaining all required permissions and approvals.
