A period terraced house with plenty of parking and a good sized garden, situated within 500 metres of the town centre. The accommodation could easily be adapted to create 3 bedrooms and offers potential for a loft conversion. Planning permission has previously been granted for this but has since expired. The current layout comprises: a large master bedroom (which could be converted to two rooms), second double bedroom, bathroom, entrance porch, hall, large and beautiful kitchen dining room, which opens to the lounge with fireplace and wood burning stove and a deep bay window to the front. The rear garden is a very good size with space for relaxing and growing (planted with fruit trees and soft fruit bushes). There is a summer house and a good sized work shop at the far end. To the front of the house is a further garden area and parking for around 4 vehicles. The property benefits from double glazed windows and gas central heating throughout.
N.B. We believe that the property is subject to a Rural Housing Restriction as detailed in Section 157 of the Housing Act 1985. Please ask at our office for further information.
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.

Steps lead down from the back door to a patio seating area with outside light. A low-level wooden door leads to storage space under the house (where the stopcock is located). A path from the patio leads down one side of the garden running alongside the lawn, which has a planting border along the other side. Beyond the grass is a summerhouse and garden shed. From here a small gate leads through to the vegetable garden, where there is also a greenhouse and the path continues to a concrete workshop.
