Situation - Located on the Southern outskirts of the village of Colyford, Apple Garth enjoys a private situation within a small road of similarly individual properties overlooking open countryside. Colyford benefits from an active community with a range of facilities including two village inns, a revered restaurant, post office, and general store/butchers, parish church, and village hall.
The small historic town of Colyton is situated about a mile away and is highly regarded for its beautiful period architecture. The town offers an appealing range of convenience shops and doctors surgery. Both Colyford and Colyton are perhaps best known for the much acclaimed Colyton Grammar School, one of England's top state schools.
Located mid way between the Regency town of Sidmouth to the East and coastal town of Lyme Regis to the West, the property is readily accessible to a wide range of facilities and activities. The Cathedral and University city of Exeter is also within easy reach providing all the amenities one would expect from Devon's capital.
Englands first World Heritage Site, the Jurassic coast lies just 2 miles to the South via the seaside town of Seaton. An historic tramway operates along the banks of the river Axe and connects Colyford and Colyton to Seaton.
Description - Apple Garth is a generously proportioned and most comfortably appointed detached village home offering accommodation of versatility and quality in a peaceful, secluded edge of village setting.
A hardwood panelled entrance door beneath a brick pillared entrance
porch opens into a well lit lobby with feature stained glass internal window passing a spectrum of light between the lobby and Kitchen/Dining Room. A panelled glazed door gives access to a central Hall with staircase at one end lit by a further stained glass window whilst panelled glazed double doors open on either side of the Hall into the Living Room and Kitchen/Dining Room.
The Living Room is a bright dual aspect room with PVCu double glazed sliding patio doors opening onto the front paved terrace with views down the length of the gardens to countryside beyond. At one end a fireplace houses a living flame effect gas fire whilst inset ceiling downlighters provide additional illumination.
The Kitchen/Dining Room is similarly dual aspect with wide PVCu double glazed picture windows overlooking the gardens to the front. Beautifully fitted in solid oak units with porcelain and pewter handles matched by solid granite worksurfaces and a cream gas fired AGA. A central island in matching oak and granite houses a stainless steel microwave and additional cupboard storage. There is space for a conventional gas fired range cooker and American style fridge freezer in addition to matching oak plate rack and wicker basket storage drawers and a built in pantry cupboard with carved oak doors. A natural wood floor continues beneath a panelled glazed door into the Utility Room similarly fitted with granite surfaces but with cream painted farmhouse units and a Belfast sink. A PVCu double glazed door provides access to the driveway at the side with further internal doors to a Cloakroom and the Garden Room, a bright dual aspect room with high vaulted ceiling and sliding PVCu double onto the rear decked terrace.
On the first floor a landing with carved wood balustrade and banister is lit by inset ceiling downlighters providing access to a built in airing cupboard and three generously proportioned double bedrooms and an equally expansive Family Bathroom. Although currently divided into three bedrooms there is evidence both in layout and scale to suggest that the property formerly presented four possibly five bedrooms across the same floor area.
The Master Bedroom enjoys panoramic views to the South over the neighbouring countryside and Axe valley through wide PVCu double glazed picture windows. To the rear of the room is a door to a beautifully fitted en suite with both shower enclosure and bath and fitted vanity and cupboard units around a basin and w.c with mosaic tiling to walls. The central bedroom allows for a tandem bed arrangement with PVCu double glazed French door at one end onto onto a stone ballustraded and quarry tiled outside terrace/ balcony.
The third bedroom runs from front to rear of the house with PVCu double glazed windows providing panoramic views across open countryside to the sea. This room was perhaps formerly arranged as two separate double bedrooms. Serving the first floor is a Family Bathroom, comprehensively fitted in white with both shower enclosure and bath and fully tiled in classic blue and white.
Outside - The property is approached from Popes Lane via a wrought iron gated and block paved driveway which runs alongside the length of the level private lawned gardens at the front, around the side of the house and onto a forecourt at the rear in front of a detached double garage building. The Garage features remote operated roller shutter door with overhead storage whilst adjoining on one side is a separate workshop/store, accessed via a PVCu double glazed door with quarry tiled floor, power, light and window to one side.
In addition to expansive level lawns at the front with paved terraces at either end, at the rear of the house is a sheltered decked area, enclosed by low brick walling above which are further lawns. The whole is bordered by mature trees and hedgerow providing a sheltered, and private setting.
