Stoneleat House is a detached property built and finished to a very high standard and to an individual design, situated within a few hundred metres easy walk of the town centre. The house is quite unique with an abundance of delightful bespoke features throughout. These include a double aperture brick-built fireplace fitted with a multi-fuel stove, a beautiful staircase with deep oak treads and metalwork spindles, unusual walk-in wardrobe with curved wall to the master bedroom and hand-made kitchen doors and drawer fronts in Yew wood and resin.
The elevations are stone with wood panel detailing and a large front entrance porch. The light floods through the house and as you would expect of a new build, the energy efficiency is high and includes a heat exchanger and solar hot water heating to supplement the gas boiler and keep costs at a minimum. At the front of the house is a walled and gated driveway providing ample parking for several vehicles. Beside the drive is an area of garden and a water feature. To one side of the house is a wide path leading to and providing useful access to the rear enclosed garden. Here, there is a large patio seating area as well as pretty landscaped garden offering a good deal of privacy.
Internally, the accommodation comprises three bedrooms, all with vaulted ceilings, the master having a walk-in wardrobe and en-suite wet room, additional family bathroom, spacious landing, entrance hall with cloakroom providing a ground floor w.c. and boiler cupboard, open-plan living/dining rooms separated by the fireplace, kitchen with built-in appliances opening to the dining room, where there are bi-fold doors to the garden. Windows are aluminium double glazed and there is under floor heating to the ground floor with radiators upstairs. This is a beautiful, unique home.
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.
