A fabulous character house with a large garden situated in a tucked away location and yet right in the heart of the town. This delightful property has recently been reconfigured and updated to provide a spacious and bright home with accommodation comprising four bedrooms, two bathrooms, entrance hall, cloakroom, sitting room with multi-fuel stove, study and a large and bright kitchen/dining/living room with a second multi-fuel stove. This room is the hub of the house with an attractively fitted kitchen, ample space for dining and soft furnishing too, with a lovely outlook over the garden. The property benefits from a gas central heating system with a new boiler having been fitted and double glazed windows.

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 to Seaton. The Jurassic Coast and pretty harbour at Axmouth is just 2.5 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.
