Property Description

Full description

Tenure: Freehold

A very spacious detached house, requiring modernisation, set in a good sized plot, about a mile from the town centre. The accommodation currently comprises three double bedrooms, first floor and ground floor bathrooms, good sized lounge, spacious kitchen/breakfast room and a separate dining room. There is potential for enlargement or even re-arrangement of the rooms (subject to consents) and with a detached garage and driveway, the property could become a fabulous family home once again. Built in the 1930`s, the house is very appealing in style and unusually bright internally. The garden is quite mature providing good privacy and there is driveway parking, which could also be enlarged if required. Most of the windows are single glazed but the property does have gas central heating installed.

Seaton is located at the mouth of the Axe Estuary, a haven for wild fowl, and adjoins the pretty Axmouth harbour. The town offers a range of day to day needs including shops, cafes, doctors, banks, post office, primary school and even a hospital. The mile long shingle beach features a long level pedestrian promenade overlooking Lyme Bay and surrounding cliffs and forms part of the Jurassic coast, England`s only natural World Heritage site. About 6 miles north along the Axe Valley is the market town of Axminster with a mainline railway station operating services to London Waterloo and Exeter.
