Stunning refurbished country cottage with countryside and distant sea views in over half an acre. Grade II listed 3 bedroom part thatch. EPC Band E.


Sea View Cottage is a beautifully appointed grade II listed part thatched cottage of 19th Century origins, most sensitively extended and improved to provide a comfortable character home. Uniquely positioned with a breath-taking outlook along the Axe Valley to the sea. The property occupies arguably one of the finest locations within the area.

Shute Hill Woods north of the cottage and the surrounding East Devon AONB provides access to a network of footpaths through wonderful woodland and rolling countryside.

The nearby popular market town of Axminster offers a selection of everyday facilities including primary and secondary schooling. The small town of Colyton is about 3 miles, with a good range of day to day facilities along with the renowned Colyton Grammar School.

Lyme Regis and the world-renowned Jurassic Coastline is situated just 7 .5 miles away and provides a perfect location for a number of recreational activities.


The entrance porch has space for coats and boots, along with a separate cloakroom. Either side of the entrance hall in the original cottage are two reception rooms, a study with fireplace and a timber panelled snug. In the modern part of the house is a part double height sitting room warmed with a wood burning stove, opening to the timber conservatory and on to the most recent addition, the quality kitchen, each enjoying the wonderful views.

The kitchen has a range of appliances and included in the sale is the solid timber kitchen table, chairs and bench, LPG hob, Neff double oven, AEG combination oven, wine fridge, American style fridge freezer and dishwasher under lovely granite worktops. Beyond the kitchen is the utility with pressurised hot water system and boiler.

On the first floor are three bedrooms, two large doubles one with an exposed chimney breast, and two shower rooms. The third bedroom is fitted with built in wardrobes.


There is a cobbled parking area in front of the garage with a sliding metal gate to further parking.

The well-built double garage has an electric operated door and stair case up to a loft storage area. A timber shed and the adjoining log store provide useful additional storage.

A path leads down to the cottage with a substantial patio flanking the southern and eastern elevations of the cottage providing an abundant space for entertaining, but more importantly enjoying the breath-taking views.

At the far end of the patio is a further store and the gardens gently slope towards the views flanked by mature hedge banks and interspersed with a variety of shrubs.


Mains water and electricity. Propane gas for the hob. Oil fired central heating. Private drainage.
