A detached 'chocolate box' cottage located on the outskirts of the town with gardens of over 1/3rd acre and stunning country views.
Fieforshame is a picture postcard detached Grade II Listed cottage which has origins dating back many centuries and is of traditional construction with colourwashed elevations under a principally thatched roof (with a slated roof extension). It is very well presented and retains a wealth of period features including an inglenook fireplace, window seats, beamed ceilings and superb cruck beam in one of the bedrooms. The accommodation is particularly light for the quintessential cottage with many of the rooms gaining a double aspect with views over the delightful gardens and surrounding fields.
Worthy of particular mention is the beautiful sitting room which has a wood burning stove, and this opens into the very well-fitted kitchen/breakfast room with a range cooker, integral appliances and French doors onto the rear terrace.
The property is approached from the lane to a parking area adjacent to which is a detached single garage. The gardens lie to the south and are principally laid to lawns which are interspersed with profusely stocked shrub beds and well-established borders. To the rear of the cottage is a log store and timber shed. The gardens gain stunning views and extend to about 0.35 acre.
Fieforshame is situated on the country fringes of Colyton, which nestles on the bank of the River Coly some 3 miles from the World Heritage Coastline at Lyme Bay. The property is conveniently located within a short walk of the town centre and has access to some beautiful walks on its doorstep over some of East Devon's most attractive countryside, much of which is designated as being of outstanding natural beauty. Colyton, with its beautiful medieval church, offers a good range of shopping and recreational facilities and is only a mile away from the renowned Colyton Grammar School, one of the country's top mixed state schools.
The coast at Seaton, some 3 miles to the south, offers wider amenities and has a long pebble beach and esplanade, and there are stunning coastal walks both east and west over the south west coastal path. The busy market town of Axminster is approximately 5 miles to the north east and has 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.
