Full Property Details

2 Moor View is situated in an elevated position off a quiet, no through lane in the heart of the very pretty and sought after Exmoor village of Withypool. The property lies just 8 miles north-west of Dulverton, a delightful country town known as the Gateway to Exmoor with good shopping facilities together with a post office, doctors, dental and veterinary surgeries, library, recreational facilities and schools.

The village nestles around a lovely old stone bridge which crosses the River Barle and has a church, village hall, village store and post office, tea rooms and the renowned Royal Oak Inn. Close to open moorland and river valleys, the property is ideally placed to enjoy many country pursuits including walking, cycling, horse riding and fishing. The property is also lies adjacent to the Two Moors Way, a beautiful coast-to-coast walk across Exmoor and Dartmoor. To the south, at Tiverton, there is fast access via the A361 North Devon Link Road to the M5 Motorway and Tiverton Parkway mainline station which provides regular intercity services to London (Paddington 2 hours).

This charming cottage has been extensively and sympathetically renovated over the years to include replacement hardwood doors and windows, log burners and flues, oil boiler and full replacement roof, and it now offers a well presented, comfortable, character home. All the front facing windows look south-east, and offer superb picture perfect views, over the village, river and Withypool Hill. From the driveway, a stable door leads into the kitchen with fitted units in a pretty duck egg blue and incorporating a ceramic sink, electric oven with halogen hob and there is space and plumbing for a washing machine and fridge. A shower room leads off with a WC, shower cubicle and the oil-fired boiler. From the kitchen, steps lead down to the dining room with a stone floor, a fireplace with woodburning stove and an under stair cupboard. The sitting room also has a woodburning stove and there is a door to the front porch. Upstairs, there are four bedrooms, all served by the family bathroom with bath, pedestal basin, WC and heated towel rail. The fourth bedroom, which is currently being used as a day room, has a door which opens out to the terrace and garden (approx 22m x 8m).

Outside, to the rear of the cottage is a spacious, paved terrace, a delightful place to sit out. Steps lead up to the lawned garden with stunning views across the moor and Withypool Hill.

To the side of the property there is a driveway with parking. The timber garage/workshop has light and power connected, with a door to the front and a door to the side. Behind the garage is a log store and the oil tank. To the front of the property, there is a small area of garden. This is accessed by a path over which there is a right of way.
