This bungalow has all the right ingredients! Three bedrooms, two bathrooms, lounge, dining room, kitchen and large conservatory/sunroom, a double garage, lovely views and a garden that is just the right size and not overlooked! Very well presented and maintained both inside and out. The property has undergone a large programme of modernisation during current ownership and has been very well maintained throughout. Both bathrooms have recently been re-fitted with attractive contemporary fittings. The spacious hallway benefits from good storage, too. In front of the double garage, there is driveway parking sufficient to accommodate at least 4 vehicles. The views from the back of the house are far reaching over the town and countryside beyond. There is gas central heating and double glazing throughout. The bungalow is situated in an elevated residential location about half a mile from the town centre. A number of footpaths wind their way from the town to this location providing a quicker and easier route than taking the roadway, with a walk of around 10-15 minutes depending on your pace.
Colyton is a pretty and historic town with a village feel with a range of local facilities including health centre, library, butcher's, baker, convenience stores, fish and chip shop, pubs, tea rooms, a garden centre and a variety of small shops and services. The beautiful Norman Church is the centre point of the town, which is most famous for the 1685 Monmouth Rebellion. 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 nearby Colyton Grammar School is another draw for the area as the school consistently appears in the top 10 Grammar Schools in the country. The Jurassic Coast and pretty harbour at Axmouth is just 2 miles away, with the seaside resort of Lyme Regis to the east, just 7 miles and Sidmouth to the west just under 11 miles.
