A beautifully presented and lovingly maintained Victorian semi-detached house situated in the centre of the town with a delightful walled garden and a garage. The house is much larger than it might first appear with four double bedrooms, two bathrooms, lounge, separate dining room, kitchen with hand-made units and a cellar/utility room. The property has some very appealing features, one of which is the lovely outlook from the kitchen and balcony over the walled garden below. The ceiling heights in the ground and first floor rooms provide a light airy feel to the house and there are lovely sash windows to many of the rooms. There is a long driveway beside the house giving access to a stone built single garage, which leads onto to a useful covered area and the garden. Stone walls border the garden on all sides. Beyond the walls are other gardens, which makes for a lovely outlook from the house and creates a quiet retreat from the outside world. This house comes with a warning – you may not want to leave!
Colyton is a pretty little market town (more like a village) with a small town centre offering a good range of daily needs including two convenience stores, fish and chip shop, butcher, hairdressers, post office, small stationers, pharmacy, health centre, garden centre, library and a few other individual shops. On the edge of the town is the tramway station which operates services throughout the summer along the Axe Estuary to Seaton. The Jurassic Coast and pretty harbour at Axmouth is just 2.5 miles away and the ever-popular seaside resort of Lyme Regis just 7 miles to the east. There is a primary school in the town and the well regarded Colyton Grammar School is just over a mile away. A beautiful Church is at the heart of the town and there is an interesting variety of architecture. Nearby Axminster (6 miles), has a mainline station with regular trains to London Waterloo and Exeter. The city of Exeter is approx. 25mins by car and the airport just outside Exeter is approx. 19 miles.
