Full description

Tenure: Freehold

This beautifully bright and spacious detached bungalow sits is a slightly elevated position in a small no-through road, close to the town centre with lovely views to the front and a secluded south facing rear garden. The property appears to have been well maintained with double glazed windows, soffits and fascias and gas central heating throughout. The accommodation comprises two large double bedrooms, one with en-suite shower room, family bathroom, spacious entrance hall, large L shaped living/dining room, good sized kitchen and garage. There is potential for enlarging the accommodation if desired, either with a loft conversion or perhaps extending over the garage, subject (of course) to necessary consents. The kitchen has been updated in a contemporary style but some aspects of the property are a little dated and would benefit from modernisation (e.g bathrooms, carpets and decoration). Overall, this is a well situated property with wonderful space and light on offer and no onward chain.
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.
