Property description

A detached family home situated towards the end of a no-through road in Colyton, within a half mile of the town centre. The accommodation comprises four bedrooms and family bathroom on the first floor, with a spacious lounge, a shower room, kitchen and separate dining room at ground level. To the side of the house is a single garage which has been split into part storage and part utility room (at the back). A door from the utility room leads into the back garden. The garden is a generous size with plenty of space for relaxing, playing and growing produce (if desired). At the back of the garden is a footpath which leads to the meadow and river walk beyond. This is a pleasant and convenient location with a lovely outlook to the rear.

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 2 miles away, with the seaside resort of Lyme Regis to the east, just 7 miles and Sidmouth to the west just under 11 miles.
