A very charming, virtually detached cottage situated in a pretty no-through lane on the outskirts of Colyton. The property enjoys a lovely rural position and has the benefit of being a mere half a mile from the centre of this pretty little East Devon town. Formerly two workers cottages, the property is surprisingly spacious and although set out as only two bedrooms, the first floor could be re-arranged to provide three if desired. Also on the first floor is a large Jack and Jill style bathroom. At ground level, is a dining hall, kitchen with integrated appliances, an L shaped lounge with wood burning stove and a conservatory. Outside, there is a gated parking space, a small courtyard garden and a good sized outhouse, which is ideal for bike and log storage or could be used as a workshop as there is light and power connected. The property has (bottled) gas central heating throughout and double glazed windows in timber frames (some of the glazing is blown). The cottage oozes character with some delightful features including window seats and exposed timbers.
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.

Within this wall is a pathway right across the front of the house, where at one end, there is space for pots or a small patio table and chairs.
