A very well presented period detached house situated close to the town centre and the station. The extended accommodation comprises four bedrooms, (three of which are good doubles) re-fitted family bathroom, hallway, cloakroom, spacious lounge with bay window and multi-fuel stove, large dining room with doors to the garden, modern kitchen and utility room. The house retains some lovely character features (such as internal doors and picture rails). The new extension to the rear has almost doubled the size of the property which is now a good sized family home. At the front of the house is off road parking for two vehicles, whilst at the back is a very pretty south facing garden with a garden shed and rear pedestrian access. The property benefits from gas central heating and double glazing throughout.
Axminster is an old market town made famous by the Axminster carpet company and is situated on the River Axe in East Devon. There is a main line train station with services to London Waterloo and Exeter and the town provides a good range of day to day shopping, banking and health needs with plenty of cafes including the River Cottage Canteen, which draws visitors to the town.
