A taste of life here from the current owners:
“We purchased the house for the superb views and the quiet location. Although peaceful, its far from isolated and Dulverton, with its grocers, pharmacy, butchers, cafes and pubs, provides for all basic needs and is only 5 ½ miles away.”
“We purchased the property to accommodate my mother. It worked really well; she had her own bedroom, lounge and bathroom downstairs which offered her privacy and independence when she needed it.”
“We have been extremely happy here and will miss the peace and quiet and being so close to the North Devon Beaches (40 minutes) and Exmoor (10 minutes). Living here has spoilt us for opportunities to discover the many gems on our doorstep including Exmoor, Tarr Steps, Bampton and Dulverton and provided so many beautiful walks to stretch our legs and those of our dogs.”
The ground floor of the property consists of two large reception rooms, a kitchen/breakfast room, an office and a downstairs bedroom with adjacent WC/shower room all linked by an inner hallway. It is an incredibly versatile space: the kitchen, lounge, dining room and new patio balcony are all interlinked with double doors. This means that each room can function independently or as one flowing reception space that integrates the patio and garden with the interior. The new elevated patio provides glorious views over Exmoor and functions as an excellent location for outside dining or evening drinks in the sunset.
Independently, the rooms are spacious and full of character. The first, at the front of the property, is currently used as a dining room. It has large windows that make it light and welcoming and can function equally as an intimate dining area or a double reception area with the lounge. The second reception area, the current lounge, is more versatile still. With doors closed, it is a cosy room with a woodburning stove and views over Exmoor. However, as mentioned above, it’s double doors link it to the kitchen, dining room and the extended raised patio balcony to the rear of the property providing a range of options when hosting.
The kitchen is modern with generous additional storage and workspaces added in recent years. It includes a double integrated oven, two fridges, two freezers and an integrated dishwasher. It has large windows overlooking Exmoor and has space to function as a breakfast room. Its flooring is quarry tiled and new. The downstairs entrance and inner hallways are also both quarry tiled. Off the hallway is a downstairs bedroom with adjacent toilet/shower room close to both the front door and the kitchen. This configuration means that the property is ideal for those with elderly relatives or guests looking for semi-autonomous accommodation (and indeed, this is how the current owners have used it). The final downstairs room is a good-sized home office with windows on two sides providing lots of natural light. The first floor is accessed via a stairwell flooded with natural light from an overhead skylight and consists of a family bathroom and three bedrooms: an en-suite master bedroom to the front of the property, and two double bedrooms to the rear of the property with views over the garden to Exmoor. All bedrooms have fully fitted wardrobes.
Outside, the elevated patio, recently installed by the current owners, provides an amazing outside space that integrates with the internal living space. A seating area with views over Exmoor elevated above the garden, it has a safety glass screen, and stairs that lead down to the lawn below. The garden area below is fully landscaped, it includes two areas of lawn, a further patio seating area and a gravelled lower section with mature borders. There is side access from the garden.
The house is not on mains gas and uses LPG gas canisters. It has two off-street parking bays adjacent to the property. All windows and doors within the property are double glazed and have been recently installed. External stonework has been recently re-pointed and the brickwork has been professionally cleaned and painted.

Blackerton is a quiet rural hamlet approximately 1/3 of a mile from the B3227 in North Devon. With views over Exmoor and surrounded by woods, fields and river valleys it is a perfect base for a rural lifestyle. Though secluded, with no through roads, it has good access to local amenities. Dulverton (5.5 miles), Bampton (8 miles) and South Molton (10 miles) are all within easy reach providing access to shops, pubs and restaurants, pharmacy, health centre and library. East Anstey primary, and South Molton secondary schools (both rated Good by Ofsted) are nearby and a school bus service collects from the top of the lane. The hamlet is only 3.5 miles from the A361 (the major road from the M5 to North Devon) which provides efficient links to the market towns of Tiverton and Barnstaple and, via the M5, to the county towns of Exeter and Taunton. Exmoor national park is only a short drive (beginning at Dulverton), and the rugged, scenic and sandy bays of the North Devon coast are accessible to the North and East, the closest being the beautiful Saunton Sands beyond Barnstaple. Tiverton Parkway Train station (19 miles) provides direct trains to London, the Midlands, the North and Edinburgh and the scenic Tarka train line from Barnstaple to Exeter takes in the river valleys of Yeo and Taw.
