An absolutely charming and well presented cottage set just off the town centre within a short walk to shops and cafes. Unusually, the property benefits from a garage and the ability to park two cars right outside. The cottage is quite spacious and well maintained, having been re-thatched in 2012 with new kitchen and bathrooms installed during the following years. Currently, let for holidays and private use, the accommodation comprises three bedrooms, two bathrooms, a large lounge/dining room, pretty kitchen, a useful covered area between the house and garage and a further snug/hobby room behind the garage. The garage itself is a useful space with eaves storage. The property is warmed by gas central heating and windows are secondary glazed throughout. The outside space is a lovely surprise with a small courtyard off the lounge which initially appears to be the only garden. Steps from here lead up and around to a delightful higher garden area, where there is a lawn and planting beds. This area is quite private and very sunny. A fabulous house which works just as well for permanent living as it does for an investment. 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.
