A charming period property with high ceilings, offering an opportunity for updating, situated along this pretty residential road in the heart of the town. The house has been in the same ownership since 1977 and as a result has been lovingly maintained. A new owner may want to upgrade some elements but the house already benefits from gas central heating throughout. The versatile accommodation is larger than you would expect at just over 1280 square feet, comprising: entrance hall, sitting room opening to dining room, kitchen and w.c. on the ground floor; three bedrooms and a bathroom on the first floor and a narrow staircase leading to a loft room at the top of the house, from where there are lovely views across the town and to the countryside beyond. At the back of the house, is a secluded courtyard with steps leading up to a roof terrace and a useful garden store. The property retains many lovely original features including some interesting fireplaces and original panelled doors.
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.
