Stylish character home in lovely private grounds approaching 1/4 acre. EPC Band C


Located in the village of Colyford just a couple hundred yards from Colyton Grammar School, the property has a wonderful private position. Substantially and thoughtfully extended by the current owners this beautiful home has an arts and crafts feel with the extension constructed using lots of solid natural materials used with traditional techniques, incorporating modern fittings such as the aluminium frame French doors. Planning permission was granted at the time (Ref 14/1183) to create two bedrooms on the first floor level.

Set down a quiet street within walking distance to the facilities in this lovely village, which include two pubs, a fantastic local shop/Post Office and the renowned school there are lovely paths in the surrounding rolling hills and along the Jurassic Coast. The larger towns of Seaton, Colyton and Axminster are within a few minutes drive, the latter with a mainline railway link to London Waterloo.


The layout is shown in more detail in the 3D tour and floor plan, which we would suggest you look at, overall the accommodation has lovely sized rooms with lots of light and an adaptable layout to suit a range of buyers.

The main living space is semi open-plan with a double aspect sitting room overlooking the front garden with French doors, solid locally grown ash wood floor, high ceilings and an exposed brick fireplace, this opens to the music room, which has French doors to the rear, high ceilings and a large storage cupboard, whilst to the side is a wet room & WC. A couple of steps take you back into the original property and the kitchen/breakfast room, fitted with a range of shaker style units under granite tops with a gas 4 ring hob and integrated double ovens as well as space for lots of white goods.

There are four bedrooms (three of which are doubles), the master bedroom being double aspect. The family bathroom has a modern suite including a separate shower.
