An absolutely charming detached period house centrally situated in the town with a pleasant outlook over St. Andrews Church with its octagonal tower and surrounding grounds. Unusually for a property within the town, there is parking for two vehicles as well as a garage. The beautifully presented accommodation comprises three/four bedrooms, and two/three reception rooms, a first floor bathroom, ground floor shower room, kitchen and hallway. There is an enclosed courtyard at the back and a very pretty cottage garden at the side, adjoining the garage and parking area. As you would expect with a property of age, the house has many lovely features and has evolved throughout the years, having been extended and slightly re-arranged. The property is presented in very good condition both inside and out.
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.

We believe that the origins of the house date back to 1768 but that the property was substantially changed later. It is primarily Georgian. Most windows are Georgian multi-pane sash single glazed with exceptions as mentioned above. There is gas central heating to radiators throughout. Under the current ownership, a number of improvements have been made including replacement roof over the kitchen extension, new hot water cylinder and associated plumbing, new carpets, redecoration throughout and a complete redesign of the garden and enlargement of the parking area.

Please note we have not tested any apparatus, fixtures, fittings, or services. Interested parties must undertake their own investigation into the working order of these items. All measurements are approximate and photographs provided for guidance only.
