Property Description

Full description

Tenure: Freehold

An attractive and quite spacious period cottage situated within a few hundred metres of the centre of the pretty little East Devon town of Colyton. The accommodation comprises four bedrooms and a bathroom on the first floor, sitting room, dining room, study, kitchen and w.c. on the ground floor. There are two fireplaces, one currently fitted with a gas fire and there is gas central heating and double glazing throughout. The cottage enjoys beautiful views overlooking the Coly river and countryside beyond giving a rural feel to the place yet at the same time being within just a short walk of amenities and close to the Town. A pretty courtyard garden completes the package of a lovely home which could be ideal for holiday makers or home makers alike and with no onward chain, this could be a quick move.
Colyton is a pretty little market town (more like a village) with a small town centre offering a good range of daily needs including two convenience stores, fish and chip shop, butcher, hairdressers, post office, small stationers, pharmacy, health centre, garden centre, library and a few other individual shops. 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 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. There is a primary school in the town and the well regarded Colyton Grammar School is just over a mile away. A beautiful Church is at the heart of the town and there is an interesting variety of architecture. Nearby Axminster (6 miles), has a mainline station with regular trains to London Waterloo and Exeter. The city of Exeter is approx. 25mins by car and the airport just outside Exeter is approx. 19 miles.
