A beautifully presented end of terrace house situated in a small select development for over 55's in the heart of Colyton. The property is slightly larger than most in Queens Court with accommodation comprising hallway, w.c., kitchen/dining room, utility room, lounge with doors to a small conservatory, two double bedrooms with built-in wardrobes, one with en-suite shower room and a family bathroom. At the back of the house is a private garden and there is an allocated parking space. The property benefits from double glazing and gas central heating. The development is set around very pretty landscaped communal gardens, providing each house with a lovely outlook and a feeling of space. Queens Court, was designed for over 55's with each house being freehold but sharing some communal elements (e.g. the maintenance of the gardens and parking areas), the emphasis being on independent living. The proximity to the town means that shops, library, bus stop, etc are all within a few hundred yards walk and yet the development is peacefully tucked away.
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.
