A spacious 3-bedroom semi-detached cottage in a convenient position within the heart of the town.
White Hart Cottage, as its name suggests, is a former public house which was converted into cottages in the 1960s. The property has origins dating back several hundred years (hence it is Grade II Listed) and was subsequently extended in the 19th and 20th centuries, creating the surprisingly spacious home we find today. It retains a wealth of character features which include a handsome inglenook fireplace with wood burner in the sitting room, window seats and several ceiling beams.
White Hart Cottage has been the subject of a recent programme of improvement with new carpets to the stairs and first floor, as well as the replacement of the boiler.
White Hart Cottage has a charming, private courtyard garden to the rear which is bordered by high walls over which climbs a beautiful Clematis. There is a covered seating area with a tiled floor which can also be screened for storing logs. It is worth noting that the cottage has a right of way through the neighbouring garden to bring in garden equipment.
White Hart Cottage is situated in the heart of this ancient country town, which in turns nestles on the banks of the River Coly some 3 miles from the World Heritage Jurassic Coast at Lyme Bay. The property is conveniently located within an easy walk of the shops, yet is also within just a few minutes walk of the countryside where there are delightful walks along the banks of the 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 situated about a mile away on the outskirts of the village of Colyford. 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.
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 footpath. The busy market town of Axminster is approximately 5 miles to the north east and has a wide variety of amenities including shops, supermarkets, various schools and leisure facilities, eateries, which include Hugh Fernley-Whitingstall's River Cottage Shop and Café, and a main line rail link to London Waterloo. There are a number of golf courses in the area and sailing at the picturesque town of Lyme Regis.
