With regards to viewing properties, please bear in mind that there will be strict controls in how we do this. Viewings can only be carried out where there are no vulnerable occupants in a property and where no viewers (or agent) are showing any symptoms. More than one person (but only from the same household and no children) will be allowed inside the property and viewers will need to bring their own mask and gloves and be asked not to touch anything during the viewing. Social distancing will have to be observed as much as possible. Please only view if you are sure the house might be 'the one' for you. Thank you for your understanding!
A beautifully renovated and extended three bedroom cottage situated within a few hundred yards of the town centre. The cottage has been completely refurbished to include re-wiring, re-plumbing, new heating, windows, internal doors, floors and all fittings. The extension has provided an additional bedroom and a fabulous kitchen/dining room with limestone floor tiles. Two further bedrooms and a bathroom complete the first floor, whilst at ground level, there is a delightful lounge with double sided fireplace fitted with a multi-fuel stove, a spacious entrance lobby, off which is a w.c./utility room with space and plumbing for a washing machine. The cottage retains much of its character as renovations have been carried out sympathetically throughout. Unusually for an older property close to town, there is parking at the front of the house. French doors from the kitchen lead to a pretty walled patio garden. A gate from here leads across a short path to a further enclosed garden with a large patio and very useful outbuilding/garden studio which has power and light. With double glazing, gas central heating and no onward chain, the property is ready for a new owner to move straight in!
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.
