What a surprising property! The location of this house is delightful, with fabulous views towards the town, taking in the river bridge with its pretty arches and beyond the town to the surrounding hills and countryside. The size of the plot is a bonus with a generous garden, full of interest, ample parking and garaging and offering good privacy. The house itself offers the character of a period property and yet most of it is modern, the original turn-of-the-century cottage having been sympathetically updated. The accommodation is very attractive and comprises dining hall with stairs rising, sun room to the front taking in the beautiful views, study and sitting room, kitchen/breakfast room with Rayburn, utility room, ground floor shower room, master bedroom with dressing room and lobby leading to a second study and bathroom, bedroom two and shower room. Outside, there is a large garage with adjoining workshop, several other outbuildings and a greenhouse. All in all, a very interesting home with plenty of charm and character with beautiful views from most rooms.
Colyton is a pretty and historic town with a village feel offering a range of local facilities including health centre, library, convenience stores, chip shop, pubs, tea rooms, a garden centre and a variety of small shops and services. On the edge of the town is the Seaton tramway station which operates services throughout the summer along the Axe Estuary, linking Colyton and Seaton, which is very popular with tourists. The Jurassic Coast and pretty harbour at Axmouth is just 2 miles away and the ever-popular seaside resort of Lyme Regis just 7 miles to the east.
