Full Property Details

Moor Cott is a character detached four-bedroom family house with mature gardens and a garage.

The cottage lies close to the centre of this very sought after little village which has a lovely church and a friendly local pub which has just recently been refurbished. The village lies amidst some lovely countryside, high up on the hills above the Exe Valley, yet only about three miles to the south of Tiverton. The area offers easy access into Exeter along the Exe valley and Junction 28 of the M5 is readily accessible at Cullompton. and as such Butterleigh is one of the most popular villages in the area.

This is a superb opportunity to step into village life - make sure you don't miss out!

The entrance porch gives access to the front door, and into the reception hall with its attractive slate flooring, stairs to the first floor and understair cupboard. The dining room is currently used as a study and with ultrafast fibre broadband connectivity, this is the perfect place to work from home. The fireplace has a attractive inset wood burning stove and oak and engineered oak flooring. This room would also suit as the sitting room, but with such a large fireplace in the other reception room, you can understand why it is used this way. Across the hall, the sitting room is a light dual aspect room, featuring a large inglenook with a large inset wood burning stove sat upon a slate hearth. The sitting room is central to the house and as such forms a real 'hub' to the home, and I suspect it is very cosy with the stove lit and the family watching a movie!

The oak flooring continues into the kitchen, which is another bright room, French doors open to the garden from the dining area, and a barn style sliding door opens to the utility room (with cloak room) and offers another door to the garden. There is plenty of storage with drawers and base cupboards below a black granite working surface, and additional wall cupboards above and an inset ceramic sink and drainer unit. An oil-fired double oven range, with two hot plates is a real centre piece, great for the perfect Sunday roast or slow cooking a hotpot. Space and plumbing for a slimline dishwasher. The utility room accommodates the fridge freezer, washing machine and tumble dryer. The dining area offers a vaulted ceiling and space for a dining table for six.

The first-floor landing has a window that looks out and over open countryside to the rear. The main bedroom has far-reaching rural views front and back, built in wardrobes and one of the largest en-suite bathrooms that I have seen! The roll top, claw footed slipper style bath, is positioned so that you can unwind covered in bubbles looking out at the view. The airing cupboard with the hot water cylinder and immersion heater, is found alongside extensive storage / linen cupboards.

Off the landing is a shower room with a fully tiled shower cubicle, electric shower, sink and vanity unit and WC with concealed cistern. Bedroom two, is another excellent double room, currently a 'walk-through' room into bedroom 3, but a hall could be added if required. Bedroom three does have restricted headroom, but the velux gives a lovely starlight view and the main window offers a lovely rural outlook. A walk-in dressing area / study offers plenty of storage space and the perfect spot for homework. Bedroom four is a good single room, with space for a single bed and additional furniture.

The enclosed garden is a gently sloping lawn, interspersed with flowering plants and shrubs. At the top of the garden is an additional area with a variety of fruit trees and a large garden shed. The garden is elevated above the road and offers a surprising amount of privacy, but you can also keep your eye on the village if you so wish.

With its stunning landscapes and friendly community, Butterleigh is the perfect place to escape the hustle and bustle of city life. Imagine waking up to the sound of birds singing and the fresh scent of nature, taking a stroll through the countryside, and enjoying a glass of wine at the local pub.

Butterleigh has a rich history, dating back to the Domesday Book of 1086 when it included only six homes. The village was once home to a thriving wool industry, and you can still see remnants of its past in the beautiful thatched-roof cottages and traditional architecture.
One of the most fascinating features of Butterleigh is its stunning medieval church, St. Matthew's. Built in the 13th century, it boasts beautiful stained-glass windows and intricate stone carvings.

If you're looking for outdoor activities, Butterleigh has plenty to offer. You can explore the nearby Tiverton Canal, go fishing in the river Exe, or take a hike in the stunning Exmoor National Park. In Butterleigh, you'll find a warm and welcoming community that values tradition, nature, and a laid-back lifestyle. Butterleigh Cricket Club is also very popular with the locals.
