A CHARMING 6 BEDROOMED PERIOD HOUSE (GRADE II LISTED) IN THE HEART OF A PICTURESQUE COUNTRY TOWN
The Old Bakehouse is a generously proportioned period town house which probably dates back to around 1800 if not earlier and it is Grade II Listed.
As the name suggests it has previously been a bakery and in more recent times a small hotel, and then a guesthouse with restaurant and tea rooms. The property is presently run as a successful B&B providing a useful income together with very comfortable owners accommodation. It is equally well suited as a spacious family home.
The house is constructed principally of natural stone walls beneath a slate roof and offers numerous character features together with modern amenities and has been well cared for by the present owners.
The Old Bakehouse is situated in the heart of the picturesque country town of Colyton which features a charming parish church with a unique lantern tower and a host of pretty cottages and fine period houses.
The town is surrounded by unspoilt Devon countryside and is well away from busy main 'A' roads - a delightful place to live and enjoy the thriving local community. There are independent shops, 3 pubs, town hall, doctors surgery, excellent primary school, playing fields etc. and also close by is the renowned Colyton Grammar School. The Jurassic Coast (a World Heritage Site) at Seaton is about 3 miles to the south., Lyme Regis approximately 8 miles away and there is a main line railway station (Exeter to Waterloo line) within a short drive at Axminster.
Please note: The current planning status of the property is Residential and A3 (catering). The Vendors has submitted a Change of Use application for residential use of the whole property.
