Pressing Iron and Shears is as rare as its name! Set in delightful gardens of around an acre in a beautiful rural setting within a small community of neighbouring properties, just 2 miles from Colyton. This kind of property rarely comes to the open market and testament to this is that the current owners have lived here for 32 years. The main part of the property is a three bedroom house, which began life as part of the Shute estate and at one time, was a public house. The current accommodation comprises: three bedrooms and a bathroom on the first floor, lounge and dining room, both with attractive stone fireplaces, a kitchen fitted with bespoke solid wood units, a conservatory overlooking the beautiful gardens and a utility room.
In addition to the main house, there is adjoining single storey accommodation providing two further large rooms and a shower room. The larger of the two rooms is fitted with a wood burning stove and a door from this room leads into a large bedroom. This space has been used as overflow accommodation but could make an ideal annexe for dependent relatives or any number of other uses.
Beyond the extra rooms is a small garage and attached to the garage is a stable with hay loft. There is great potential for creating further accommodation if desired (subject to consents) to provide a small letting unit.
The property benefits from oil fired central heating, private water supply and private sewage. A new sewage treatment plant was fitted in 2019 to comply with the new general binding rules.

The nearest town is Colyton, which 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 4 miles from the property, with the seaside resort of Lyme Regis to the east, just 9 miles and Sidmouth to the west just over 12 miles.
