Property Description

Full description

Tenure: Freehold

A recently renovated detached house situated in a tucked away position yet very convenient for the town centre with shops and facilities within a few hundred yards walk. The charming accommodation comprises three bedrooms, two of which are good doubles, a family bathroom, entrance hall with storage and ground floor WC, very spacious and bright kitchen/dining room, sitting room and study/hobby room. All fittings and appliances in the house are newly installed and the property has been rewired and re-plumbed with a new gas boiler and central heating system. Outside, to the front is a small open plan garden and parking space for up to three vehicles and at the back, an area of lawned garden with a beautiful Magnolia tree at one end. This is an exciting and unusual opportunity to purchase a character property in a great location which has a "new house" feel to it. A rare combination! This is the first time the property has been offered to the market as this house has been in the same family since the 1920`s.
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 tramway station which operates services throughout the summer along the Axe Estuary to Seaton. 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.

There is parking for two-three vehicles at the front and this could be increased if required. A lawned front garden is enclosed by a picket fence to the front with barked borders planted with shrubs alongside the driveway. A gravelled path flows around one side of the house and leads to the back garden where there is a further gravelled area behind the house with space for seating. Beside this area, a step leads down to a stretch of lawned garden where there is a beautiful Magnolia tree and one or two other shrubs. On the other side of the house, a further gravelled path continues to the side where there is an outside tap and an external power connection.
