Ashmead is situated on the fringes of the town of Colyton and sits in an elevated and private location gaining wonderful far reaching views over the Axe Valley to the countryside beyond.
Colyton nestles on the bank of the River Coly, some 3 miles
from the World Heritage Site known as the Jurassic Coast. The property is conveniently located within a short walk of the centre of the town, yet is also within just a few minutes walk of the countryside along the banks of the Coly River.
Colyton offers a comprehensive range of shopping
and recreational amenities, and the renowned Colyton
Grammar School, one of the country's top mixed state schools, is within walking distance. The town, with its beautiful medieval church, is situated amongst some of East Devon's most attractive countryside, much of which is designated as being of outstanding natural beauty and there are a myriad of footpaths in the vicinity.
The coast at Seaton, some 3 mile to the south, offers a long
pebble beach and esplanade and there are beautiful coastal
walks both east and west over the South West Peninsular
The busy market town of Axminster is approximately 5 miles to the north east and has a wide variety of amenities including supermarkets, various schools, shops, which include Hugh Fearnley-Whitingstall's River Cottage Shop and Cafe and leisure facilities with main line rail link to London (Waterloo). There are a number of golf courses in the area and sailing at thepicturesque town of Lyme Regis. Ashmead is a superb modern residence which was constructed about 15 years ago by the current owners, and was cleverly designed so as to take advantage of the contours of its plot, as well as making the most of the magnificent views to the rear.
The property is approached over a shared driveway which leads to a private tarmacadam driveway to Ashmead, and then on to a gravelled turning area which provides parking for several vehicles. This also gives access to the integral double garage.
Undoubtedly one of the main features of Ashmead are its
beautifully planted gardens. To the front of the property are brick retaining walls with several borders and steps which lead up to the front porch, and there is also an additional ramped concrete path which leads around the property and into the rear garden. The majority of the grounds lie to the rear and comprise a large area of level lawn which is interspersed with colourful plant and shrub beds and several terraces. There is also a vegetable garden with raised beds.
