A delightful, refurbished cottage with a lovely garden, situated within a few hundred metres of the town centre. The property was completely upgraded about four years ago by the current owners. Thought has been given during renovations to small touches which enhance the appeal. These include stone tiled window sills and period style radiators (except to the bathrooms, which have ladder style radiators). Work carried out includes: the installation of gas to the property with a full gas central heating system, new electricity consumer unit, new double glazed windows, re-roofing, slight re-arrangement of the ground floor to make better use of the space, new ceiling joists in the loft allowing the potential for loft conversion, increased insulation, creation of a shower room to the first floor, new sanitary ware, new kitchen and complete redecoration. The accommodation is charming comprising two bedrooms, one with en-suite shower, open plan lounge/kitchen/diner, utility room and ground floor shower room. There is a pretty garden at the back with a lovely apple tree at the far end. The property is offered with no onward chain.
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.
