An imposing Georgian Town House with 2 Shops and 4-Bedroomed Accommodation.
Centrally situated in this picturesque Country Town.

London House is a handsome period town house with light and bright 4-Bedroomed accommodation. On the ground floor there are 2 well proportioned lock up shops which can produce a useful rental income if let or for owner occupation.

The property enjoys a prominent location in the centre of Colyton and close to the magnificent parish church noted for its lantern tower.

Colyton is a delightful small country town with a history reputedly dating back to Saxon times. It features a host of character cottages, fine period houses and a thriving local community spirit with many local clubs and societies.

The town is surrounded by beautiful Devon countryside and is well away from busy main roads but it is not isolated as the Jurassic Coast at Seaton is only about 3 miles to the south and inland is the market town of Axminster with a main line railway station (Exeter to London Waterloo line). There is a range of independent shops and services including 2 convenience stores, 3 public houses, tea rooms, library, doctor's surgery, community buildings etc. Locally there is a primary school and the highly regarded Colyton Grammar School.
