An absolutely delightful semi detached cottage offering three bedroom accommodation with a beautiful secluded garden at the back. The Grade II Listed house is situated just a quarter of a mile from the centre of the town. Internally, there are plenty of lovely quirky features as you would expect with a house of considerable age. The accommodation comprises two good doubles and a generous single bedroom, bathroom and second WC (both on the first floor), entrance porch, hall/study with stairs rising, dining room, sitting room and kitchen with Rayburn. At the back of the house is a very pretty garden, the first part being a courtyard style with ornamental pond and a summer house. Through an archway, the remainder of the garden opens up to a surprisingly large space with lawn, vegetable garden and shed. The garden is very private. The house is nicely presented and has gas central heating throughout.
Colyton is a pretty little market town (more like a village) with a small town centre offering a good range of daily needs including two convenience stores, fish and chip shop, butcher, hairdressers, post office, small stationers, pharmacy, health centre, garden centre, library and a few other individual shops. On the edge of the town is the tramway station which operates services throughout the summer along the Axe Estuary, linking Colyton with Colyford and Seaton. 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. There is a primary school in the town and the well regarded Colyton Grammar School is just over a mile away. A beautiful Church is at the heart of the town and there is an interesting variety of architecture. Nearby Axminster (6 miles), has a mainline station with regular trains to London Waterloo and Exeter. The city of Exeter is approx. 25mins by car and the airport just outside Exeter is approx. 19 miles.
