An attractive period property situated in a lovely residential road within the town centre, just a short walk away from shops and the Colyton Garden Centre. King Street is made up of mainly period properties with a mixture of older cottages, Georgian houses and one or two newer builds, providing an interesting mix of architecture. The house is semi-end terraced with a passageway between this and Richmond house next door. On the upper level, the house is joined to Richmond House. The accommodation is set out over three floors, comprising: (from top down) two bedrooms, the largest at the front with a pretty dormer window, further large double bedroom and large bathroom on the first floor, sitting room which has been extended into the former hallway, kitchen/dining room and a rear extension providing a utility room and ground floor w.c. Outside, at the back of the house is a very pretty enclosed garden and there is also a small front garden. The property is in good condition with recently replaced double glazed windows and gas central heating. Parking is available on the road outside.
N.B. There is no onward chain. As the property is currently tenanted, we will need some notice for viewings.
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.
