A unique character property enjoying A quiet location in the heart of axminster town centreLace Cottage reputedly dates back to the 1700's and was originally part of a bakery - in the garden room is the 18th Century bakers oven.
When the current owner purchased the property in 2001 she undertook a comprehensive refurbishment project which provides modern amenities and retains the inherent character features.
The accommodation can be described as very quirky yet most attractive and enjoys plenty of natural light with views to the rear across the Axe Valley and at the front over the rooftops to the Parish Church.
