A pretty Edwardian terraced house, situated in a quiet residential road within a few hundred metres walk of the station and town centre. The house is offered to the market at a competitive price as the house is in need of some TLC. The property benefits from gas central heating with a new boiler having been fitted about 3 years ago but would benefit from replacement windows and general redecoration, including floor coverings. The accommodation offers generous room sizes and comprises: three bedrooms and a bathroom on the first floor, two reception rooms and a kitchen downstairs. There may also be potential for a loft conversion (subject to approval) which some of the others in the road have done.
There is a little front garden, which could potentially offer a parking space (subject to council approval for a dropped kerb) and a garage at the back, along with a larger garden. This is a great opportunity for first time buyers or for an investment buyer.
Axminster is an old market town made famous by the Axminster carpet company and is situated on the River Axe in East Devon. There is a main line train station with services to London Waterloo and Exeter and the town provides a good range of day to day shopping, banking and health needs with plenty of cafes including the River Cottage Canteen, which draws visitors to the town. The Jurassic coast and seaside resort of Lyme Regis is just 6 miles to the south and the surrounding area has been designated as being of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
