A surprisingly large property set in delightful gardens in a particularly lovely location in the East Devon village of Colyford, not far from the well respected Colyton Grammar School. The property, which began life as a simple bungalow has been extensively enlarged and now provides a main house with three bedrooms and an attached self-contained two bedroom, single storey dwelling, which lends itself to use as an annexe for dependent relatives or as a means to generate income through letting. The main house comprises accommodation (mainly on ground level) of two double bedrooms, family bathroom, large hall, sitting room, additional lobby/boot room (formerly a single bedroom) and a lovely kitchen/dining conservatory which overlooks the beautiful garden. There is also a loft conversion providing master bedroom with en-suite shower room. The annexe, which has a private entrance, can also be accessed from within the main house and offers two en-suite double bedrooms, sitting room, kitchen/dining room and utility room. Outside, to the front of the property is a large block paved driveway providing parking for 5-6 vehicles, separated from the pretty front garden by a picket fence and garden gate. Continuing around the side to the back of the house is a large, secluded and beautiful garden with separate areas for play, relaxation and growing produce or flowers. The property is most attractively presented both inside and out. All windows are double glazed, some in uPVC frames and some wooden and there is oil fired central heating throughout.
Colyford village is situated along the Jurassic coast road, just inland from the beach at Seaton and the pretty Axmouth harbour as well as the Axe Estuary, which is a haven for wildfowl. Amenities in the village of Colyford include a Post Office & General Stores, a butcher`s shop, two pubs, a church, a village hall and a leisure centre. Colyford is also home to the well regarded Colyton Grammar School.
