This detached four bedroom home is situated in a small cul-de-sac in an elevated residential part of the pretty little East Devon town of Colyton. The most unusual bonus is that the property has a large garden – in all extending to approximately 0.43 acre. Internally, there are four bedrooms, one with en-suite shower room, family bathroom, entrance hall with cloakroom, lounge leading to a conservatory, study, dining room, kitchen and utility room. Outside, there is a double garage and driveway parking with the majority of the garden being at the back. A large proportion of the garden is grass with several mature and some quite unusual trees and a five bar gate providing road access for maintenance purposes at the far end. Closer to the house is more formal planting with shrub and flower beds and patio seating areas.
The property has been very well maintained both internally and externally, with updated bathroom and kitchen fittings as well as replacement windows, new gutters and downpipes being just a few of the many improvements. The house would not require any work prior to moving in, except for decorative preferences. All windows are double glazed and there is gas central heating throughout.
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.
