An elegant and versatile town centre Victorian residence offering spacious accommodation set over three floors and includes a double front shop premise. Further details at

Artemis House is a traditional Victorian property set within the heart of Axminster town centre. The property offers a wealth of features from this era, such as high ceilings, fireplaces and picture rails. The substantial accommodation is arranged over three floors and subject to the necessary planning consents offers a huge degree of flexibility for any potential owner. In the past Artemis House was arranged as a luxury bed and breakfast with independent art gallery, it could also lend itself to families who are looking at multi generational living within a vibrant market town.

In recent years the property has been skilfully renovated and remodelled to feature a blend of traditional architecture with contemporary fixtures and fittings throughout. There are two accesses from West Street, one to the shop unit which is particularly light and airy, and a side door that leads straight into the main entrance hall. The current owners' snug offers separate access to the retail unit and could be altered to offer a fully self contained unit. Beyond the entrance hall is a large family room featuring flagstone flooring that leads into a recently refitted kitchen that overlooks the courtyard garden.

To the first floor are two generous double bedrooms, both of which feature en suite facilities and decorative fireplaces. Three further bedrooms plus a bathroom are located on the second floor and could provide the perfect opportunity to create a self contained apartment ideal for a family who seek their own privacy and space. Plumbing is currently provided in the 5th bedroom.

A modern gas central heating system has been installed and many of the windows have been double glazed including the large bay window to the master bedroom.

The property occupies a central location within the market town of Axminster and conveniently placed for the train station that is on the Exeter to London Waterloo mainline. Axminster itself offers a selection of shops including two supermarkets; schools, churches, cafes and restaurants. It is also home to Hugh Fearnley Whittingstall's famous River Cottage.

The beautiful Axe valley with its renowned bird sanctuary reaches the sea at Seaton (6 miles) and the famed beaches of the World Heritage Jurassic Coast and the resort of Lyme Regis are at a similar distance. Exeter (M5) is 24 miles, and Taunton 20 miles.
