A three bedroom semi-detached period house situated towards the end of a short no through road, close to the town centre. The accommodation comprises three bedrooms and a bathroom on the first floor, hall, kitchen, dining room, lounge with a multi-fuel stove and rear lobby. The back garden is large and south facing with plenty of space for sitting outside, growing produce and/or flowers. There is a large timber shed half way up the garden, offering great storage/workshop space. To the front of the house a driveway offers parking for several vehicles and there is a timber store/car port. The house has been well maintained in many ways, having replacement double glazed sash windows about 5 years ago, new aluminium gutters were fitted 5- 6 years ago and a new gas combi boiler was fitted earlier this year. Internally, the property would benefit from some cosmetic updating. There is no onward chain.
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 Seaton tramway station which operates services throughout the summer along the Axe Estuary, linking Colyton and Seaton, which is very popular with tourists. 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.
