A delightful 5 bedroom period terraced property. Ideally located close to the centre of Colyton town with stunning countryside and river views to the rear with some views to the St. Andrews Church to the front. Marine House is much larger than may appear at first sight, comprising a spacious ‘L` shaped lounge/dining room with amazing original open fireplace, kitchen/breakfast room with Aga, utility/boiler room, w.c. and sunroom to the ground floor. A period turning stair case takes you to the first floor, with very spacious master bedroom with en suite bathroom, together with two other double bedrooms and large family bathroom. A further turning staircase takes you to the top floor, with fabulous landing window providing great views to the countryside. Here there are two further double bedrooms, one with bay window and eaves storage. Whilst the property requires updating in some areas, the original features, including fireplaces, high ceilings, exposed floorboards etc., are most appealing. There are some sash, plus double glazed windows, together with a gas central heating system. There is a long (shared) driveway to the side of the adjoining property that leads to a open fronted garage (this could be rebuilt to a good sized garage/workshop subject to the usual planning consents). An archway leads to a large garden with lovely views to the countryside and stone boundary wall bordering the river.
Colyton is a pretty little market town, benefiting from local stores, butcher, hairdressers, post office, pharmacy and garden centre to name a few. 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 is just 2.5 miles away and Lyme Regis just 7 miles to the east. A beautiful church is at the heart of the town and there is an interesting variety of architecture.
