With regards to viewing properties, please bear in mind that there will be strict controls in how we do this. Viewings can only be carried out where there are no vulnerable occupants in a property and where no viewers (or agent) are showing any symptoms. More than one person (but only from the same household and no children) will be allowed inside the property and viewers will need to bring their own mask and gloves and be asked not to touch anything during the viewing. Social distancing will have to be observed as much as possible. Please only view if you are sure the house might be 'the one' for you. Thank you for your understanding!
An attractive period semi detached house with garage, parking and south facing garden situated within a few hundred metres of the town centre, with lovely views to both the front and back. The accommodation currently comprises three bedrooms, bathroom, hallway, two reception rooms, kitchen and cloakroom. There is an attached garage and a gated drive providing parking for one vehicle with further parking available outside. There is potential to enlarge the property if desired, either by means of a loft conversion or by replacing the garage with a two storey extension, all of which would of course be subject to permission being granted. At the back of the house is a lovely garden with a summer house at the end to make the most of the evening sun. The property retains many charming features including picture rails, some fireplaces and panelled doors but has the advantage of modern double glazing and gas central heating throughout. NO ONWARD CHAIN.
Colyton is a pretty and historic town with a village feel with a range of local facilities including health centre, library, 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 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 and the ever-popular seaside resort of Lyme Regis just 7 miles to the east.
