A fascinating and unusual property offering characterful and versatile accommodation with some delightful features. The Grade II Listed 17th Century property comprises a main house and annexe with the option for three to five bedrooms depending on how the accommodation is used. The master bedroom in the main house is a fabulous room of large proportions and great character with a raised plinth housing en suite shower, with two further double bedrooms and bathroom on the first floor. The ground floor is larger with a beautiful lounge and dining room in the original part of the house, both of which having intriguing original features, including wood panelling, beams, two open fires and even a 'jug and bottle' hatch! There is also a good sized kitchen, and large utility room/study, a rear lobby and ground floor WC. The annexe houses a garage/workshop on the lower level, with a large room above (currently used as a lounge) with pretty views and in addition, there is a good sized bedroom on the upper first floor, spacious landing/study, kitchen/dining room at ground level along with a bathroom. The annexe offers the opportunity for generating income but is also ideal for a dependent relative or overflow guest accommodation. There is a paved courtyard garden to the annexe, whilst the main house has a small lawned garden to the front as well as a paved Mediterranean style garden to the side. A driveway entrance to the property provides parking for several vehicles and access to the garage. The house is located just off the centre of town within a short walk of shops and cafes.
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. The market town of Axminster is just 6 miles to the north, where there is a mainline train station offering services to London Waterloo.
