This characterful period cottage sits on a quiet residential road in the heart of the pretty and historic town of Colyton. Inside it's deceptively spacious, being much larger than one would expect with three bedrooms, two reception rooms, two bathrooms and a kitchen. The cosy dwelling has retained many original features such as some interesting fireplaces, panelled doors and there are high ceilings.

A recent upgrade has seen the installation of a new heating system, a convenient ground floor shower room and a stylish, new kitchen. The redecoration throughout the property, made by the current owners, has left favourable results.

Outside, there's a quaint and secluded courtyard style garden. This private and enclosed space has enough room to accommodate a table and chairs, and an array of garden pots. The wooden steps add interest and work well as a place to display plants. The steps lead to a small flat roof area.
