Full description

A charming detached stone built period cottage which would benefit from some updating situated within a delightful walled garden with double garage/workshop close to the centre of Colyton.

Situation - High Walls Cottage is situated at the heart of the ancient centre of Colyton which is an attractive and popular town set amidst rolling East Devon countryside beside the River Coly and close to the south coast at Seaton. Colyton has a rich historical heritage with many interesting buildings dating back as early as the C14 and which offers a surprising range of day to day amenities which includes shops, primary school, the renowned Colyton Grammar School, post office, health centre, pubs, restaurants and beautiful parish church. The county towns of Exeter, Taunton and Dorchester are all within easy reach whilst to the south is the coast at Lyme Regis with its famous Cobb and bay with other resorts at Seaton, Beer and Branscombe, all within a short distance. There is a main line station on the London Waterloo line at Honiton and Axminster. Colyton lies in the heart of the East Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Description - High Walls Cottage is a picturesque, double fronted, stone built, detached cottage situated to the rear boundary of a fully enclosed walled plot. The accommodation is arranged over two floors in symmetry around a centrally located staircase with character features befitting of the property's period origins.
A panelled entrance door opens to a flagstone floored hall with staircase rising to the first floor and panelled doors on either side to the Living and Dining Rooms. The former is home to an inglenook style fireplace housing a gas fired cast iron stove set on a quarry tiled hearth. A small pane sash window with seat overlooks the gardens to the front with a further casement window to the side. The Dining Room fireplace now houses a built in cupboard with shelving and original cabinetry to either side of the chimney breast. A small pane sash window with seat enjoys the same outlook as the Living Room with an internal window and panelled door opposite leading through to the Kitchen at the rear. Quirkily configured around a presumed former fireplace, the Kitchen features wood trimmed work surfaces, cooker recess, a range of fitted cupboards, roof light windows and a braced period door into the Living Room. A glazed door on one side of the Kitchen links a utility area with pedestal basin and tiled floor to a separate w.c via a further latch door.
The staircase from the hall splits at the top giving access to a double bedroom on one side of the first floor and a second double bedroom and shower room on the other. The larger of the two bedrooms features fitted wardrobes and an en suite cloakroom with basin and w.c. A small pane sash window overlooks the gardens to the front whilst a built in cupboard houses a gas fired boiler serving the domestic hot water and central heating system. The second bedroom overlooks the walled gardens through a matching small pane sash window and both rooms are served by a shower room fitted with Mira electric shower, pedestal basin and w.c.

Outside - As its name implies, High Walls Cottage is discreetly hidden from King Street behind a lockable door within fully enclosed walled gardens arranged in courtyard style in front of its pretty stone faced elevations. The gardens are laid to a combination of attractive block and stone paving with retained beds and borders, home to a surprising number of mature trees and shrubs. To the roadside corner of the plot is a substantial double garage/workshop c 6.99m x 5.79m with electric up and over door out onto the lane, pedestrian door into the gardens and power and light connected..
