Get ready to act quickly as this handsome six bedroom period residence in the heart of Colyton is not expected to stay on the market for long.
Asa’s Fee is a substantial property of character which has origins dating back to the turn of the last century. Its unusual name is thought to have derived from the fee paid to the builder called Asa, who constructed the terrace of houses in which it sits. Notable external features, typical of buildings of that time, still exist such as the flintstone and brick quoined elevations, gables and sash windows.
Inside, the property has been subject to an extensive programme of refurbishment and enhancement which has resulted in a very well-appointed home that has retained a wealth of character.
The current owners have thoughtfully styled each room to enhance the property's charm and age which works well in the large, light spaces.
Worthy of particular mention is the stunning drawing room which has a parquet floor, window shutters and a brick fireplace with wood burner. This opens into the bright sunroom which overlooks the rear garden.
The kitchen has a sleek, contemporary look and has been sympathetically styled to suit the age of the property. This room flows into the formal dining room which features an open fire.

Asa’s Fee has six bedrooms and a study arranged over two floors. Each floor has bath/shower rooms and the principal bedroom benefits from an en-suite bathroom.
Outside, there's a quaint semi-walled garden to the rear of the house. This outside space is largely paved with borders of colourful shrubs with a pergola adding extra interest. There's a timber summerhouse that could work well as an office. Parking for the property is located through large double gates in the former barn beyond the house.
