A delightful mid terraced cottage nicely situated in a tucked away location in the heart of Colyton and close to the beautiful St Andrew`s church and it`s unusual octagonal tower. The cottage is cosy and very well presented featuring a lovely stone and brick fireplace while outside to the front is a pretty cottage garden with a good sized shed and small outhouse with electricity connected. Michaelmas Cottage has been modernised by the present owner to incorporate a new kitchen and bathroom. A new gas Combi boiler has been installed in the loft (with wifi controls) and new radiators. A highly efficient Aga wood burning stove has been installed in the front room. New carpets have been fitted along with a new wiring check and new consumer unit and LED lighting throughout. All windows are uPVC double glazed. The cottage would make a perfect first home or holiday home.
Colyton is a pretty little market town (more like a village) with a small town centre offering a good range of daily needs including two convenience stores, fish and chip shop, butchers, hairdressers, post office, small stationers, pharmacy, health centre, garden centre, library and a few other individual shops. 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. The Jurassic Coast and pretty harbour at Axmouth is just 2 miles away and the ever-popular seaside resort of Lyme Regis just 7 miles to the east. There is a primary school in the town and the well regarded Colyton Grammar School is just over a mile away. Nearby Axminster (6 miles), has a mainline station with regular trains to London Waterloo and Exeter. The city of Exeter is approx. 25mins by car and the airport just outside Exeter is approx. 19 miles.
