A delightful period end of terrace house situated in the beautiful East Devon village of Axmouth. The property was built in the late 1920's with attractive windows and a pebbledash finish under a tiled roof. The situation is peaceful, being set along a quiet lane away from the main village thoroughfare and with a lovely outlook over the fields opposite. There is a lovely front garden with mature flowering cherry and plum trees at its centre. It may be possible to partially reduce the front garden to create parking if desired (subject to any necessary consents). This space is large enough to achieve a parking bay and retain some garden in addition to the raised sun deck outside the front door. There is an additional garden at the back of the house as well as a garage (en bloc).
Internally, the lounge at the front of the house has a pretty brick fireplace fitted with a log burning stove with a seasoned oak beam over and lovely views to pasture land opposite. The family kitchen is at rear of the house offering plenty of space for a dining table and has a stable door leading to the rear courtyard. On the first floor are two double bedrooms and a bathroom. There is great potential for a loft conversion as the front bedroom is large enough to be split into a double bedroom and landing creating a further staircase to a second floor with potential to create a bedroom/en suite or an office suite.
The attractive original pine windows and have recently been repainted externally with the interior a natural wood finish. There is oil fired central heating throughout.
There is an amiable South West aspect, with protection from the North and Southerly winter weather. To the rear of the house is a pretty enclosed courtyard garden with an outside w.c. A gate from here leads to the garage and turning area, beyond which is a much larger area of garden which backs onto a field. Although the rear garden has become a little over-grown, this is a fabulous space, offering quiet seating, mature trees and shrubs, an opportunity to grow some produce and just a great place to enjoy nature with delightful views over the pasture and meadows.
Axmouth village with its pretty harbour is located at the mouth of the Axe Estuary, a haven for wild fowl, with the beach a mile away. This is an area of outstanding natural beauty, with the River Axe running to the sea adjoining the town of Seaton. The town offers a range of day to day needs including shops, cafes, doctors, bank, post office, primary school and even a hospital. The mile long shingle beach features a long level pedestrian promenade overlooking Lyme Bay and surrounding cliffs and forms part of the Jurassic coast, England's only natural World Heritage site. About 6 miles north along the Axe Valley is the market town of Axminster with a mainline railway station operating services to London Waterloo and Exeter. Axmouth village enjoys the services of two good pubs, a clifftop golf course and a marina for small leisure craft.
