An unusual detached split level house with fabulous views across the town and the countryside beyond. The house is in need of a good deal of refurbishment, which will include complete redecoration, some electrical work, new kitchen and bathrooms and new floorings throughout. The garden will also require landscaping. On the plus-side, there is central heating, double glazing and uPVC soffits and fascias. The property is situated in an elevated residential road about half a mile from the centre of town. The front entrance is accessed from Burnards Field Road. At this level there is a large lounge, a kitchen, both having fantastic views, a separate dining room and cloakroom. Stairs lead down to the lower level, where there are three bedrooms, the master with en-suite shower room and built-in wardrobes and a family bathroom. There is an older style conservatory off one of the bedrooms, which leads into the back garden. The garden is partly walled with a gate to the driveway and single garage. The house presents a great opportunity for anyone looking for a project to make their mark on.
Colyton is a pretty and historic town with a village feel with a range of local facilities including health centre, library, convenience stores, 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 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 and the ever-popular seaside resort of Lyme Regis just 7 miles to the east.
