Full description


This delightful property is believed to have been built during the 1860s and still to this day retains many of its inherent characteristic Victorian features.

The external walls are part faced in exposed natural stonework/render and sit beneath a slate roof. The main part of the building was completely re-roofed 8 years ago (also insulated) and the sitting room roof was re-slated and insulated 2 years ago.

It has also undergone extensive modernisation and improvement including a loft conversion, the result of which has been to create two stylish bedrooms and an en-suite bathroom.

No.1 also includes 'The Olde Corner Shoppe', a successful tearoom/gift shop. Stock and furnishings can be made available (subject to separate negotiation) for someone wishing continue trading. There may also be potential for conversion to residential use (STPP).

The property enjoys excellent countryside views to the rear of the second floor overlooking the town, including an aspect over the iconic 'Lantern Tower' of St Andrews Church.

Colyton is a small and picturesque country town which has been largely unspoilt by the 20th Century (with a host of character cottages and fine period houses).

Well away from busy main 'A' roads, it is a delightful place to live and enjoy a thriving local community.

The coast of Seaton is about 3 miles to the south, Lyme Regis approximately 8 miles and there is a main line railway station some 6 miles inland at Axminster. Colyton has a range of shops and amenities and is surrounded by unspoilt Devon countryside.

Please Note: Although the property is not listed, we are advised that it is included as part of a Conservation Area.
