This stately-looking residence with all its Victorian splendour and elegance makes a strong first and lasting impression. Often these substantial properties are situated on the outskirts of a town or in a more rural setting, yet The Grove is located in a stunning spot in the heart of the desirable town of Colyton. Conveniently, the local amenities and outstanding schooling are within easy reach.
Built in the 1890s, this imposing Victorian family home is surrounded by meticulously landscaped gardens. Established flower beds, shrubs and mature trees occupy the gardens creating a delightful setting. A gravel drive leads to a distinctive turning circle in front of the property that adds an extra degree of grandeur.
This refined theme also runs throughout the property, which adorns fine Victorian features such as high ceilings, original cornicing, ornate fireplaces, large sash windows and an elegant balustrade staircase.
Although in need of modernisation, this house comes with so much promise. The principal reception rooms are pleasantly spacious and offer fine views over the gardens. The kitchen has a range of wooden units and leads into a breakfast room. To the rear is a study and cloakroom which could be converted into a separate annexe.
Upstairs, the master bedroom has an en-suite, and beautiful bay windows overlooking the front gardens. There are five further large bedrooms, three with ensuites, and a family bathroom.
