A beautifully presented detached house, originally a 1920`s/30`s property which has been extended and cleverly modernised to provide a stylish home.

Beneath the house is a small cellar for storage. Windows are double glazed and there is gas central heating throughout.

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, a bank, 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. The delightful coastal town of Lyme Regis is just over 6 miles to the east and the ever popular coastal town of Sidmouth, just under 10 miles to the west.
