An interesting detached part bungalow, part house, known as a 'tower bungalow' offered to the market with no onward chain. The property is around 30 years old and several in this style were built around the same time on this development. These houses have proved popular offering the combination of ground floor living with first floor guest accommodation. The house would benefit from some general upgrading, although windows and bathrooms have been replaced within the past 5 years. A small entrance porch leads into a hallway, with stairs rising to the first floor, where there are two double bedrooms and a bathroom. At ground level, the largest double bedroom is off the hallway along with the ground floor bathroom, kitchen, dining room and the lounge, which is accessed from the dining room. There is a fireplace with wood burning stove in the lounge and sliding doors leading out to the garden. Off the kitchen is a newly built conservatory, the interior of which needs finishing. At the back of the house, there is a raised patio outside the lounge and a raised decking running along the back of the conservatory, with steps down to the remainder of the garden, which is east facing. At the bottom of the garden is a door leading into the garage, in front of which is parking for the house. The property is offered for sale with no onward chain.
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.
