An elegant Grade II listed Georgian semi-detached house situated in a central but quiet location in the pretty little East Devon town of Colyton. The house has an adjoining garage, which is unusual both for this period of property and homes in the centre of town. There is also a very pretty garden at the back along with a stone barn which can be used as a hobby room or an office space. Internally, the accommodation is set out over three floors and comprises: entrance hall with stairs rising, a large living/dining room, kitchen, utility room and ground floor w.c.; on the first floor are two double bedrooms, one of which is very large and has the benefit of an en-suite shower room; the family bathroom is also on the first floor. From this level, a further original stair case leads up to the top floor, where there is a good size `L` shaped bedroom. The property retains some beautiful features, including panelled doors, fireplaces and high ceilings, whilst benefitting from the convenience of modern central heating.
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. 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.
