A beautifully presented and much improved detached bungalow in the popular residential road of Govers Meadow in the pretty little East Devon town of Colyton. The property has undergone a comprehensive programme of modernisation in the past few years to include an overhaul of the central heating system, a new boiler, a re-arrangement of kitchen and dining room to provide a large kitchen/diner, new fittings, floorings and redecoration throughout.

The accommodation is attractively presented and comprises: three bedrooms, re-fitted bathroom (now with walk-in shower) , hallway with plenty of storage and a cloakroom, a spacious, almost square shaped lounge with patio doors to the garden and the kitchen/dining room. Attached to the property is a single garage behind which is a utility room. All doors and windows are uPVC double glazed. At the front, a driveway with parking for one vehicle leads to the garage. There is a side pedestrian gate leading to the rear garden which is south facing and very pleasant. This road is always popular due to its proximity (just a few hundred yards) and a relatively level walk to the town's facilities.

Colyton is a pretty and historic town with a village feel with a range of local facilities including health centre, library, convenience stores, 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.
