The county town of Exeter, 16 miles to the West, has a comprehensive range of shopping and sporting facilities, theatres, art centre, main line express rail link to London Paddington and a international airport together with M5 access.
The Regency coastal resort of Sidmouth lies some 9 miles to the south with its pebble beach (sand at low tide), long esplanade and range of independent shops. The renowned Colyton Grammar School, one of England's top mixed state schools, is situated about 9 ½ miles away.
High View dates back to the 1850s and was once a public house called The New Inn, before being remodelled into two cottages. It was then purchased by the current owner in 1985 and was converted into one dwelling. This has created a very flexible and spacious property that could suit a growing family with a need for a separate annexe or dependant relative. Worthy of particular mention is the superb architect designed sitting room with its panoramic views across the town and beyond. There is a good-sized vaulted entrance hall which leads to the beautiful bespoke kitchen with a Heritage Range which controls the central heating. There is a further additional kitchen area and a useful store and cloakroom. Also on the ground-floor is the double aspect dining room, study and second sitting room.
Two separate staircases lead to the first-floor. On one side of the house are three bedrooms with a modern fitted Jack and Jill wet room. The other side has two futher large double bedrooms with a high quality fitted family bathroom with oak flooring, a separate walk-in shower and a bath.
