Cowslip House is a substantial period house which has been well maintained and offers modern facilities whilst preserving period features.

The property is set in an attractive mature garden with a sunny southerly aspect, a double garage and ample parking. It is on the eastern edge of Axminster on the Lyme Road about 1/2 mile from the centre of this historic market town in the unspoilt Axe Valley. The town offers a good selection of shops, primary and secondary schools and leisure facilities. There is also a main line railway station (Exeter to Waterloo line). The Jurassic Coast at Lyme Regis and Seaton are both about 6 miles away.

The property is currently successfully holiday let but is also well suited as a well proportioned family home.

Contents available by separate negotiation.
