A unique detached bungalow situated in a small cul-de-sac of individually designed houses and bungalows, just half a mile level walk from the town centre. The accommodation is well designed and spacious. The large entrance hall with vaulted ceiling, beams and a high stained glass window, provides a bright and welcoming entrance - a great first impression. The lounge, dining room and kitchen are accessed off the hallway, all of good size and bright. Both the lounge and kitchen enjoy pretty countryside views. An inner hall separates the living space from the bedrooms, of which there are three, again generously proportioned and a large bathroom. A utility room and w.c. complete the rooms. The property is a little dated but the flexible accommodation presents a great opportunity to re-arrange the layout slightly and perhaps create an en-suite bathroom if desired. The double glazed windows were fairly recently replaced and there is gas central heating throughout (although the boiler may be a little old). Outside, there is ample parking for 2-3 vehicles with a driveway leading to the garage. Further parking could easily be created if required. The gardens wrap around the house from the front around one side and to the back, the latter having been landscaped for ease of maintenance. The garden is a good size for the property and very sunny, facing due south at the back.

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.
