This spacious house, situated within half a mile of the town centre has a lot to offer: a period family home with a detached self-contained annexe (which has been adapted with mobility issues in mind), a good sized garden, plenty of off road parking, easy access to the town and a pleasant outlook over the nearby playing fields and the countryside beyond.

A substantial house with a private driveway and mature hedge screening, the accommodation on the ground floor briefly comprises; hall, cloaks cupboard, shower room, games room, living room with log burner, open plan kitchen / dining room, inner hall / work area, utility area and conservatory. Upstairs, on the first floor there are three double bedrooms, a single bedroom, and a bathroom.

The detached annex is a very sought after addition to St Antony. Ideally suited for someone who has mobility difficulties, with its sloping access path to a conservatory, open plan living /dining room as well as kitchen, bedroom and wet room.

The property stands in well kept gardens that extend to three sides, with ponds, plenty of sheds / stores, a summer house and raised paved patio areas. There`s ample parking for eight or so vehicles.

Colyton is a pretty and historic town with a village feel with a range of local facilities including health centre, library, butcher`s, baker, convenience stores, fish and chip shop, pubs, tea rooms, a garden centre and a variety of small shops and services. The beautiful Norman Church is the centre point of the town, which is most famous for the 1685 Monmouth Rebellion. 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 nearby Colyton Grammar School is another draw for the area as the school consistently appears in the top 10 Grammar Schools in the country. The Jurassic Coast and pretty harbour at Axmouth is just over 2.5 miles away, with the seaside resort of Lyme Regis to the east, just 7 miles and Sidmouth to the west just under 11 miles.

The garden is well screened from the road and neighbouring properties and slopes gently from the back of the house down to the parking area.

Also at this level is a garden shed with water butt and a pedestrian gate leading out to the side lane (providing pedestrian access).

There are two entrances to the garden from the driveway, one through a timber arch, which lead to a predominately lawned garden with two ornamental ponds with crazy paved areas and low stone walling. The garden is well stocked with a number of shrubs and trees. A barked area houses a children`s play area with tree house and slide and there is a space for a trampoline nearby. To one side is a timber summer house.

Closer to the house and tucked away to one side are a number of useful store sheds, one is the boiler room, housing wall mounted Worcester gas boiler, another is used for general storage the other as a log store and houses the air conditioning unit for the annex. Beyond the sheds at the side of the house is a secluded clothes drying area with a door back into the utility room.

There are a number of external power sockets sited throughout the garden: on the workshop, both ponds, summer house, on the patio beside the conservatory, on the front of the house beneath the ground floor shower room and in the log store.
