An elegant period town house set at the back of a small square overlooking the centre of the town. The accommodation comprises three bedrooms and shower room on the first floor with a long galleried landing and elegant stair case leading down to the ground level, where there is a kitchen, large living/dining room with bay window and fireplace, L shaped hallway with beautiful Victorian floor tiling, a study and w.c. The rear garden consists of a long courtyard area nearest the house and steps at the far end leading up to a higher level where there is a walled lawn area. The house is not listed although it is in a conservation area. As a result, windows are mostly single glazed with a mixture of sash to the front with square leaded windows at the back. There are wooden shutters to many of these. The house is full of beautiful original features including many doors which have been stripped, built-in cupboards with original hinges, fireplaces, wide floor boards and the fabulous hall flooring. The property benefits from gas central heating.
Colyton is a pretty and historic town with a village feel with a range of local facilities including health centre, library, convenience stores, chip shop, pubs, tea rooms, a garden centre and a variety of small shops and services.

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.
